Nonthando, an upcoming investment manager at her workplace. She is excited that she might be due for promotion. Today’s meeting with the Group CEO and is her chance to shine and make her mark. The meeting is scheduled to take place from 2:00pm to 3:30 pm. She did not make any other arrangements to collect her child-Junior from school since the meeting ends at 3:30pm. Alas! The meeting takes longer than expected. She realizes she has no plan B and once again she is not going to make it in time to pick up Junior. Nonthando is stuck and Junior stranded!
