The festive season is a special time of the year which is generally filled with happy times.
Unfortunately, some are bearing the brunt of December and a controversial video served as another reminder of this.
Twitter user @pmcafrica shared a video which reveals how the driver of a luxury Mercedes-Benz drives off after filling up with petrol.
The unsavoury incident is said to have taken place at a Sasol petrol station in Durban.
YEN.com.gh gathered that the act understandably incensed those who viewed the footage.
Many found the deed despicable and couldn't understand why a seemingly wealthy man would burden the helpless petrol attendant.
Motheo Lebelo (@MotheoLebelo) fumed,
"Disgusting act by the driver and sadly the petrol attendant is going to get deducted for that petrol bill. We as drivers need to start to be more responsible."
Maphum (@Maphumzah) expressed her disbelief:
"Hawu, a whole Mercedes driver."
HawttMessSemester (@Lebogangkk) shared a useful suggestion:
"Dear @SasolSA @TotalSAfrica @EngenSouthAfrica @ShellSouthAfrica. I think it’s high time y’all introduce prepaid authorisation swipe the card first if they paying with cash they pay ahead of time."
Chileshe (@Chilesh71951450) felt that the festive season took its toll:
"December pressures. Probably headed back to Joburg after showing off new car emakhayeni. Had no petrol for return trip."
According to the BBC, Kamil Iddrisu died during training for officer selection into the British army. It is reported that the young vibrant trainee died from a sickle cell disease during an exercise at Whittington Barracks in Staffordshire.
