Found In LA: The Kindness of Strangers
Getting a parking ticket just downright blows, agreed? It can be the ultimate day-ruining moment, especially if you're having the proverbial "one of those days" to begin with.
However, LAist Featured Photos Pool contributor faerymkh submitted a shot of the ticket they found on their windshield recently, that had an added message from a thoughtful and anonymous individual. To explain:
A stranger left the message "Bummer that you got a ticket but they suck and you're awesome! Continue loving the world!" Amazingly, their message worked and quelled our anger at the City of LA.
Now how can I get that same kind person to write that message on my student loan bill every month?
