Courtesy and thoughtfulness, even the simplest gesture of humanity, can make the whole world seem good again.

It was one of those days where everything was going wrong. I was running late to a spot because I'd spent obscene hours trying to get a claim processed through my insurance and as I darted down the subway stairs I remembered it was the day my weekly MTA pass expired.
My train station no longer has an attendant so I walked up to the first of three machines to purchase a new MTA pass for the week. I soon found out that the vending machine was no longer accepting credit cards, debit cards OR bills. It was only accepting COINS. Now being that I did not have $30 in change on me I moved to the next machine. At this point I hear the loud speaker announce that my train was here, It's ok I tell myself There are more trains..
