Make My Day

As I was carrying groceries home this afternoon,  I saw a meter maid ahead of me on the sidewalk. I would have said hello, but she seemed engrossed in what she was doing. As I passed by, a bright blue Jeep slowed down and stopped in the road beside her. The curly-haired woman behind the wheel leaned out the passenger window and got her attention. As the meter maid approached her, the driver said, "Here's a wrist corsage. It smells wonderful. Put in on and have a lovely afternoon."

When I turned around, the driver was handing the meter maid a corsage of peach flowers.


  1. I always try to be extra nice to them because they take such abuse for just doing their jobs. It's nice to see that someone else appreciates their contribution to our city too!

    Made my day too!
