The holidays are stressful, and they may be even more stressful as they come to a close. We’re all a little bit poorer, and the holiday cheer that could keep you moving starts to fade. This also is true for a woman who recently found her reserved parking spot taken. However, instead of reporting the person and having their car towed, she just found a spot on the street to park in. But her good deed did not go unpunished. While parked on the street to save the stranger from being towed, the woman received a large parking ticket, unaware that the zone she had been parked in required a permit.
Frustrated, the woman left a note on the car parked in her private spot. Despite the difficult situation she found herself in though, the woman wrote a very polite note.
“Hey Stranger. Because you were parked in my spot last night (and still are??), I got a ticket for street parking overnight w/out a permit. I’m broke. These are privately owned spots, and I could have you ticketed and towed. I won’t, but please don’t park in my spot again.”
But it wasn’t her gentle tone that was the most surprising. The stranger who had taken the reserved spot wrote a genuine apology note and left an envelope with $100 dollars in it, to pay for the parking ticket.
“First I would like to apologize for parking in your spot. It was irresponsible on my part and I would like to give this to you to pay for the ticket and whatever else you need. It can be tough around this time of year. Merry Christmas.”
