so i drove into Chicago for a meeting yesterday.
i was running late and found a metered parking spot within a block of my destination on a very busy street (ontario street just east of michigan avenue).
only problem...no change.
there was a city employee who was emptying the change out of the meters.
i asked for change. he said he couldn't do that. i asked someone else on the street for change.
they didn't have it.
next thing i know, he reset the meter for 2 hours and said happy holidays!
random acts of kindness just blow me out of the water.
