Anyone who drives a car has probably had their vehicle dinged by another car that drove away leaving the evidence behind. But one person decided to take ownership of their mistake, and was definitely rewarded for it.
A person who goes by Slathbog shared on Reddit that they recently scratched a stranger’s truck while parking, and while it was just a little scratch, they decided to leave a note for the owner of the truck with her number, and the driver’s response is sure to put a smile on your face.
Instead of getting angry, the driver told Slathbog that it was no big deal, and the scratch could easily be buffed out, and then thanked them for leaving the note. Slathbog then offered to buy them their buffing supplies, but the truck driver wasn’t having it. Instead, the driver suggested they use the money for someone else, noting, “whether it’s a gift for a friend or a complete stranger, if you could pay it forward I’d appreciate that.”
Folks on Reddit definitely appreciated the story, which was upvoted by more than 67,000 Redditors. It also prompted more than 650 comments, some of which had folks sharing their own personal accident or car scratching stories. Check them out here.
