Upon returning to her parked car, a Seattle woman recently discovered two things — another vehicle parked way too close to hers, and what appeared at first to be an ominous note on her windshield.
When she pulled the note off her windshield and opened it, however, she realized that she had no reason at all to be fearful.
“Sorry I parked so close,” read the note, a picture of which was shared last month on the image-sharing site Imgur. “Couldn’t find a larger parking spot. If you can’t get in please call me and I’ll come down.”
Also included on the note was the writer’s name, “Cat,” as well as the writer’s phone number, a smiley face, a “Happy Holiday” greeting and instructions to “buy a coffee on me” with the $5 bill that this mysterious woman, “Cat,” had left for the driver.
Question: Who does this?
An great human being with some common decency, that’s who.
Stunned by this act of kindness, the driver sat there for a moment and wondered whether she should purchase coffee or return the money.
As reported by The Huffington Post, she opted for the latter, choosing to text “Cat” her gratitude and offer to return the money.
“You are welcome!!!” the do-gooder reportedly replied. “No need to return the 5$. Buy a coffee or pay it forward. With 2016 almost over it’s nice to spread a little kindness!”
Heed these words closely, folks: “Pay it forward.”
That was an inspiring message — one that needs to be shared a million times over. Just imagine how life might be if everyone were to perform an act of kindness for someone else, and the recipient of said kindness were to do the same for another. It would be an amazing world, to say the least.
The key to this vision lies in people simply being more aware of how their actions affect others. “Cat” could have easily ignored her bad parking, but instead she chose to take action. And by doing so, she marked herself as both a thoughtful human being and an inspiration to others.
