Default Wow there are still good people in the world

So last year I bought a motorcycle. Took my written test $10, then went and took the driving test and that was something like $15. When you take the written test you get a 4x8 paper that is your premit, then you take the riding test and they just stamp it, its then a full blown license. However its only good for a year, you have to take it back to the stupic BMV and get them to stamp the letter "M" on your license and thats $20.

Anyways long story long, last year I never felt like droping the $20 to have an "M" stamped on my license. So I kept my paper in my wallet and was planing on geting the stamp in may right before its no good. Well it got realy beat up and was in about 3 separate pieces, just looks like a piece of trash, and from time to time would fall out of my wallet when I was paying for stuff.

Well about 2 months ago I noticed its wasnt in my wallet and couldnt find it anywhere. Yesterday I got a unmarked letter from someone with nothing in it but my old paper license. So happy. Saved me time and money. I wish I could thank them. Heck they spent 44 cents just to give it to me.

I always tell people if I get too much change. Just doesn't feel right taking it. Cool story. My parents were at a restaurant a couple weeks and there was a group in the booth behind them, or beside or something and the guy told a funny story (can't remember about what now) but my parents kinda chuckled when they heard it. The guy walks over, snatches there bill up and says, "Have a nice day" and it was like...a $50+ bill for the meal. I thought that was pretty cool

I returned a video card to staples a couple months back and the girl gave me an extra $20 back, for some reason I decided to count the money in the parking lot and realized it. I walked back in and gave it to her and she didn't seem grateful or anything, kind of gave me a weird look actually. I was just being a nice guy and didn't want to have any more bad karma come my way because my computer and my car had taken a crap within days of each other.
