Reddit user suchgarbage recently came out to their vehicle to find an all-too-familiar sight on their vehicle: a parking ticket. It was accompanied by a much less common thing, though.

They also found an envelope tucked under their wiper with a kind note and a little something to brighten their day.


The note read:

"Hey Stranger-—
"Noticed you had a parking ticket on your truck & figured that Tuesday was a liiittle bit too soon for somebody's week to already start sucking..."
"I mean, we're only two days in & who knows what the heck your Monday held..."
"Anyway - hope your week just keeps getting better from here!"
"—Keep it real!—"

The envelope also contained $25—the amount of the parking ticket.

They shared an image of the note with the caption:

"This morning I found an envelope with this note and $25 tucked under a parking ticket on my truck."

Several users were a bit skeptical of the post.

"Where I live someone will bust out your window for a quarter left in the center console."
"Can't fathom this ever happening."

"I can't fathom a parking ticket that's only $25. Where I live they're at least $75."

Others were a sightly less cynical.

"That is awesome. Glad some one was looking out for you. Just remember to pay it forward. Also contest the ticket."
-ShaneOfan
"Definitely paying it forward! Might just toss this whole envelope on another car next Tuesday. 😄"

One person inquired about the poster's Monday which, it turns out, was less than stellar.

"How was your Monday?"

"Monday was actually not that great, so this definitely added some goodness to my week. :)"

A couple of users had good answers to the assertion that people never do this in real life.

"How come these posts of thoughtfully, hand-written notes with free money attached to them are so common on Reddit and I've never known anyone or even heard of anyone on the giving or receiving end of these in real life?"

"Gee, it's almost lik being on a social media site exposes you to a lot more of the world than your circle of acquaintances."

"I did it once. You can check my post history for the story. It's two in the morning and I'm tired, But I told someone else about it in this thread."

It's not often that we hear about the good things like this that people do for each other, but that doesn't mean they don't happen.

People have a tendency to focus on the bad things in life, unfortunately.

Maybe we should make more of an effort to share the positive things in life, it gives everyone hope.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
