I’m sure most parking attendants and enforcement officers out there have dozens of stories about being yelled at, sworn at and threatened, but a parking lot attendant in Oklahoma has quite a different story to tell this week.
Mr. Mike Hay is a disabled veteran who works part time at a Norman parking lot. This week a friendly customer stopped to chat, wish him a Merry Christmas and hand him and envelope.
Hay said he had to attend to other vehicles who were parking, but when he got around to looking inside the envelope, he found $1,000 in twenty dollar bills.

We don’t all have an extra $1,000 laying around, but we might have $5, or $10 to give to someone who needs it more. Money’s not the only thing we can give generously: smiles, ‘thank yous’, ‘you’re welcomes’ and ‘after yous’ all make people feel good and don’t cost us a thing.
