Twitter Spaces weather and news anchor Vusi Dhlozi used his social media platform to share an incident that was both terrifying and inspiring. No one can deny the sudden rush of anxiety that comes from having your card declined at a till, for Dhlozi the situation was even worse.
He came to the shocking realisation that he had forgotten his bank card after filling petrol at an Engen garage.
As panic began to wash over him, the unexpected kindness of a petrol attendant came to his rescue. The attendant allowed Dhlozi to transfer the money to him so that the attendant could pay using his own card.
The quick thinking and helpfulness of the attendant were shouted out on Dhlozi’s Twitter page and Mzansi is living for it. The comments section was quickly filled with messages of appreciation for the Engen petrol attendants.
