A man was shocked to discover a note seemingly attached to a broken phone asking him not to fix it.
The unusual request came attached with a bribe – a $100 dollar bill to sweeten the deal.
Because this is 2020, the repairman uploaded a video to TikTok showing the alleged note and broken phone.
Mani Warda’s video of the awkward incident has gone viral with more than two million views and thousands of comments.
Many praised him for his sensitive handling of the situation – although others argued that he “broke bro code.”
In the video, Mani claimed: “So this customer and his wife came in earlier and they gave me his phone to fix.
“I was like “all right, give me an hour, I’ll finish it for you.
“Anyway, I came in the back, I opened it up and this is what I found inside.”
He shows off a handwritten note which asks the man to pretend the phone cannot be fixed.
It states: “Please tell my wife the phone is unfixable.
“She wants to check the phone history. $100 dollars is yours, thanks.”
At the end of the video, Mani asks his followers: “What do you guys think I should do?”
Many people urged him to tell the woman about the note, with one advising: “Keep the hundred and tell her,”
Another replied: “She already knows, she just doesn’t want to accept the truth.”
A third advised: “When they come back for the phone, give it all back, money, all of it!
“Have no part of it. Tell him you couldn’t fix his problem.”
A fourth added: “Keep the hundred and respect the Bro Code,” which one person blasted back: “The bro code applies to little boys. Men actually respect women.”
The TikTok user uploaded another video revealing what he decided to do – and many people were relieved.
The video can be seen here but be warned, there is a lot of explicit language.
In it, Mani claims that the woman visited the store a day earlier than he told them to return and asked to see the phone.
In a video, which has been seen 2.5million time, he tells the woman about the note.
He explains: “I didn’t fix it because I opened it and this is what was inside.
“I don’t want nothing to do it, I don’t want you guys to get me involved.
“I know it’s just business but….,” he trails off before the woman interrupts him.
She asks: “Are you serious? He thinks he’s so f slick.”
The woman then tells Mani that she will pay him $200 dollars for him to repair the phone.
He agrees, adding that he “feels bad” and wants her to know the truth.
Many praised him for repairing it, with one person replying: “You’re great man, nobody deserves to be cheated on.
“She’s mad because she loves him.”
Another blasted: “Bro code violation, your Bro Code Card has been suspended.”
In a final update, Mani uploaded a video in which the fuming husband confronted him before fleeing the store.
A man off-screen can be heard saying: “I left a note in that b****.”
One person blasted: “HE SHOULDN’T BE CHEATING!!! Dog.”
Others questioned if it was faked, with one person commenting: “I wish this wasn’t staged but I just can’t tell.
“Whatever still a good story.”
Another replied: “Looks really staged, but glad you’re okay.”
