“You guys paying R19.20 for petrol?”

@Itumele_Mora replied:

“That’s deliberate and misleading. Who told them people need time where petrol price is normally displayed.”

“Nothing misleading here. It’s even written time in bold at the top. Played.”

“Atbleast you could still afford to pay for it, mina I would be leaving my phone for the difference.”

“But you can arrange for the difference to be paid later. You sign a few forms and leave a copy of your ID and vehicle details.”

@PulengChristin2 said:

“Askies. At Shell you were going to get so many points of cash back... Jesus Christ you lost that cashback now.”
