The nicest thing happened to me today! While I was waiting for my morning bus, a woman came up behind me, and handed me her prepaid bus pass. I was taken aback, at first, because I couldn't figure out why she was giving it to me. (I already had my money in hand, ready to pay the driver) The women explained that the pass had enough money for one more day, and she had already received her new one in the mail. She could have used it for the last day, but decided to give it to me instead. I gushed and told her how awesome she was.
With the economy so crappy these days, even an extra $6...helps out so much. Just another reminder that there are good people in this world.
*Update* I wrote most of this post earlier....then I started feeling gloomy/blue. (not about the post, of course) When I came back to it, reading it made me feel a bit better...just knowing that I was the recipient of a random act of kindness made me feel good. So I would like to say thank you, once again, to the anonymous woman who decided I should receive her bus pass, this morning.
