@motherboarddoc1 had a job offer with a salary of over R30 000 but he needed a car. He revealed that he asked his friend, who is not working, if he could use the car and pay him R9 000 until he could purchase his own vehicle.

His friend shut him down, even though he'd only need the vehicle for three months. The young man said he tried to call his cousin in Durban to borrow her car but he needed the vehicle on 28 February, so he was stuck.

Social media responds to the bag fumbling

@nkadi_b believes:

"I think he could have driven you at least ke, especially because he's not working."

@ClydeRouma shared some advice:

"Could get Uber guys for around 2k a week, they would agree..."

@Themba51760567 wrote:

"A tad unfair to say 'we lost the bag' that way. You lost the bag, you offered him crumbs. You cannot run a car for 3 months at R9k a month. You’ll see the day you have one."

@JusCallMeWill responded with:

"One day and you already dropped it? Go in tomorrow and act like you thought starting date was March."

“I envied you”: Woman dates bestie's ex, tells her to “rest" in apology message

In more news about friendships turning sour, Briefly News previously reported that people dating their best friend’s ex is just not okay! The people of South Africa feel this happens far too often and were shocked by the way this one woman put the situation.

Social media user @kulanicool shared a screenshot of messages an ex-bestie sent, round-aboutly apologising for snatching up her man! It was the part where she said “so rest” that really got the good sis. Kante, rest?

Briefly News got the chance to ask @kulanicool (the one who shared the info) their views on the matter... and this is what they said:

"I think it must have been a case of her knowing what the challenges were within the relationship and using that to her advantage to gain access to the guy and later have it escalate to marriage."
