Pay It Forward

Okay, I love this movie and what the story behind this little boy stands for.  Last week I paid it forward.  I believe in kindness toward others... (even despite my own emotional personal hangups).  Last week I decided to bring in donuts for everyone in the office :-).

This is after one of my luckiest nights with a little problem I call speeding.  I mean, I have been lucky all my life since I never got a ticket... and I have been known to drive fast since I got my license.

I was driving my friends after a concert last week when I got pulled over.  This was not surprising to me because I am a horrific speed racer on the road.  It was close to midnight on 101 south just past SFO.  I was going about 85 to 90 until I approached the freeway exit.  I saw sirens flash behind me and thought, "****..."  It was already late and I was so tired, and just a minute away from dropping off my friends at their car, when a friendly CHP officer pulled me over.  Being the nervous and seemingly forgetful person that I am, I did not have my driver's license on me.  I totally panicked and was extremely nervous as he approached my window to speak to me. 

Of course there is a happy ending to this short story.

Smiling and friendly as usual, I told him that I don't have my driver's license and thought I was only driving 75 (so I lied).  Well, to make a long story short, the adorable CHP officer did not give me a speeding ticket and only cited me for a misdemeanor of not carrying my DL.  I could not believe my luck.  :-)

So CHP officers out there, some of you do perform random acts of kindness.  I will try to speed less and be a good driver on the road for the safety of all!

id like to say something positive but its not really random kindness, more like horny kindness.

Kindness really does ripple through the whole world like in the film the butterfly effect. The same as if you have an argument with someone then they will be in a bad mood and are likely to be unkind to someone else. Ive noticed that when people are kind to me it really lifts my mood and I want to be nice to everyone there after. being nice to people really makes you feel good.

There seems to be a connexion between random acts of kindness and doughnuts! <br />
Glad to hear your slowing down though.

Hooray! I am inspired to pay it forward :)
