Month-end can be a real challenge when you have things to do. 

So, it comes as no surprise to us that people will try anything to get a buck here and there. 

One person made Mzansi laugh out loud with their antics and we are surprised he didn't get into trouble with the bank for doing this. 

The TikToker, Andile, shared a video of him using a Shoprite Xtra Savings card in a FNB ATM. 

He inserts the card into the machine and then continues to follow the prompts on the screen. Surprisingly, the machine prompted him as if it were a bank card. 

But not for long...
