On Memorial Day, I was downtown and was about to pay my parking meter when a homeless guy told me I didn’t have to since it was a holiday. I thanked him and gave him the money I was going to use for the meter. I come back a little later and the homeless guy says, “the guy came around giving tickets! I really thought you didn’t have to pay today! So when I saw him coming, I used the change you gave me to pay for your parking.”
A homeless guy who spends hours outside asking people for money used the money I gave him and saved me from getting a ticket.
I gave him some more money after that and paid a few expired meters.
Share some kindness today. Pay it forward.
