Then the days start passing by, days turn to weeks, weeks turn to months, and then before you know it, that awkward moment approaches where you have to approach them and sheepishly ask for your money back.

If you don't know yet, #TheFixer is a feature on Stacey and J Sbu's show in which the duo gives KZN listeners an opportunity to share their dilemmas that they seek advice on. Together with the help of fellow KZN listeners, Stacey and J Sbu try to help the concerned party fix their problem.
