Day 313: Gave Up My Parking Spot

Today was one of the more stressful driving days I have had in a while.  For some reason, every single route that I took throughout the course of my day, it seemed that there was construction or fender benders holding up traffic.  Due to the fact that there is so much concurrent construction, there was a severe lack of parking spaces in the places I worked today.  I was running slightly behind for an appointment and couldn't find parking.  I had circled the area 3 or 4 times when I spotted a car pulling away out of the corner of my eye.  I instantly beelined it to the parking spot and pulled right in.  As I got out of my car to pay for my parking, I noticed there was a guy in his car who looked terribly stressed out and seemed to be looking for a spot as well.  I took a look at the clock on my phone and realized I still had some time to spare.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I gave up my parking spot to the man.  I found out right after that the man had a number of packages that he was bringing in to the building nearby, so he was super thankful.  Lucky for me, it surprisingly didn't take me too long to find a spot and I made my appointment on time.
