Petrol attendant tells Banyana captain she could win a ticket ... to a Banyana match
Forget Hlaudi delivering sermons under a tree, one of the most hilarious moments we've heard of this week was when Banyana Banyana captain Janine van Wyk was asked by a petrol attendant if she had won a ticket to watch her team play in France.
Van Wyk had fans rolling on the floor with laughter when she took to Twitter on Thursday to share a hilarious exchange between her and a petrol attendant, who didn't recognise her.
She was filling up her car with fuel when the attendant told her that she stood a chance to win a trip to France to watch Banyana Banyana play at the Women's World Cup.
To make matters worse, Van Wyk's face was on the promotional material for the competition.
Me: Please fill my car with R400— Janine Van Wyk (@Janinevanwyk5) March 28, 2019
Attendant: "Ok because u filling with R300 or more u stand a chance to win a ticket to go to France with the @Banyana_Banyana team.
Me: "Thanks but I'm already going😁"
Attendant: "Eyyoohh did u win already?"
Me: "Yep, a VIP ticket🤭" pic.twitter.com/bUI1u8HlGw
The tweet has been shared over 1,000 times, and received more than 4,000 likes.
People found the incident funny, and praised Van Wyk for her humility.
Here are some of the reactions:

The guy has dedication towards his job and he even went as far approaching a VIP— tshepo (@tshepo11588749) March 28, 2019
I like how replied to attendant. Talk about humour and respect. Some would have gone "you don't know who I am"— Medic (@FMohokare) March 28, 2019
Now, can I have the ticket you won please 😅😅😅
She later returned to station to give the attendants them some merchandise.
In November, Banyana Banyana made history when they beat Mali 2-0 and qualified for the Fifa Women's World Cup for the first time.
The tournament will run from June 7 to July 7.
