While on my way to the Assessor's and Zoning Offices at City Hall the other day I found a terrific parking space directly across the street from City Hall. As I pulled into the space I noticed an older gentleman rummaging around in the car in front of me. I noticed he continued rummaging around as I walked to the parking meter, to my surprise it was my lucky day, I didn't need to put a quarter in the meter, there was plenty of time left on the meter to do all my errands at City Hall.
By this time the older gentleman was looking a little frantic and was crouched down outside of the car and reaching in under the front seat. When I need a quarter for a meter one of the last places I look is under the front seat so I asked him if he'd like a quarter for the meter. He said "Oh Please that's wonderful" so I put the quarter in his meter that I otherwise would have used in my meter. He kindly thanked me as I passed by him on my way to City Hall and he said he not only didn't have a quarter but he couldn't find his wallet.
When I returned to my car from City Hall the older gentleman's car was still in front of mine with no sign of him and there was more time on his meter.
