Today I am thankful to have been the recipient of a "Pay it Forward" moment.
I'm not one hundred percent sure that it's what it was, but I'm sure that it is what it will become.
There was a long line for train tickets, there was a man who cut in front of me in line (when I finally got to the front! Argh.)
And then I was pulled aside by a MUNI man. He handed me a ticket, charged and ready to go, and ushered me through the gate with only a "Happy New Year!" as an explanation.
I left with a perma-grin and a renewed appreciation of humanity.
The best two dollars I ever saved, I can't wait to pass it on!
