Let’s be honest and get this out of the way — there’s nothing easy about being down on your luck. When you’re worrying about basic things like food and shelter — you know, basic things needed for survival — it can be easy to become bitter and mean.
But as these less fortunate people have shown, they know that the competition for the all-mighty dollar is tough.
The solution? Get creative and show that although they might have lost a bit along the way, they haven’t lost their sense of humor.
Sometimes the kindness of strangers can be so amazing that it’ll leave you a little choked up. That’s certainly the case for this man who happened to cross paths with a woman selling roses on the subway.
He approaches her and asks how many roses she has left to sell. She tells him that she has 140 roses and they’re a dollar each. Wait until you see what he does next…
The relationship between police and civilians has been in the news a lot this past year and it’s moments like you’ll see here that make it such a hot button issue.
According to the video’s description, an Uber driver witnessed a car trying to park without using a blinker at a green light. The car, which turned out to be an unmarked policeman’s vehicle, didn’t have reverse lights on either, so it’s likely he was double-parking without using his hazards.
The Uber driver casually pulled around and gestured “non-offensively” that the car’s driver should use his blinker in that situation. Unfortunately for the Uber driver, the police officer didn’t take kindly to the gesture, followed him, pulled him over, and then this ensued. Thankfully, the driver’s passengers were smart enough to record…
The officer’s actions are under a “formal investigation,” but his behavior here is unacceptable in any profession, let alone one that’s designed to serve and protect.
