#13: It makes my day when……….. When parking the car, the wonderful person exiting gives you their valid ticket.
Now this one is a rare one and it really gets you excited about the good nature of your fellow humans.
You circle the car park at a busy venue, waiting for a car to exit, waiting and circling, getting more frustrated each lap, especially when you only need to duck in for 30mins or so.
Then you notice the park brakes light up and the reverse lights come on and you’ve hit gold. As the car gets halfway out of the space the driver jumps out and walks to your car, what could they want?
“Would you like my parking ticket, it’s still valid for another 1 hour?”
Of course you say yes, but often you are still in a bit of shock at your good fortune that you don’t have enough time to tell the lovely driver, how thoughtful and kind the gesture was.
Such a simple thing to do, but when it happens to me (maybe 3-4 times now) it certainly makes my day. Next time you have plenty of time left on your ticket, think about paying it forward, as it will certainly put a smile of someone else’s face.
Good karma is always returned, sometimes not straight away but it will happen.
