Mr. Pop Bottles is 46-year old bachelor from Polokwane. He lives the life of a bachelor, didn’t think he would need to settle down at any point, and loved to party with younger women. He is what we call the life of the party when you went to clubs, and drove one of the nicest cars in Polokwane.
Unfortunately, the good times did not last long. Mr. Pop Bottles now has three children by three different women and with his low salary could not afford to keep up with his extravagant lifestyle. Before long, he found that he could not afford his debt repayments, let alone his child maintenance.
