Kindness Repaid With Kindness Over Stolen Parking Space

A small step forward for humanity.

Imgur user Pemu posted these pictures of a note received by a friend who got a parking ticket after her assigned space was taken by a stranger.

Frustrated by the ticket, the unidentified ticket recipient left a note on the person's windshield.

The note reads:

"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 + towed. I won't, but please don't park in my spot again."

Her note got quite the reply...

The note was put into an envelope containing $100 in $20 dollar bills.

On the back was written:

"First I would like to apologize for parking in your [sic] 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 [sic] can be tough around this time of year. Merry Christmas – the a**hole who parked in your spot."

A small blessing perhaps, but one worth noting.
