Woman Leaves Note to Parking Spot Thief, Gets an Unexpected Response

Showing kindness to someone who steals your parking spot is a challenging feat to master.
One woman took her generosity to the next level when she left a rather civilized note for a stranger who stole her parking space. In her note she explained that instead of having the stranger’s car towed, she decided to park her own car elsewhere. As a consequence she received a parking ticket she could not afford.
The note she left to the stranger read:
“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.”
The next morning she received a rather unexpected surprise. She found an envelope with a note on her own car that read:
“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 — the a**hole who parked in your spot.”
Inside the envelope was $100 worth of $20 dollar bills from the stranger. If all parking matters had a similar ending, the world would be a better place.
