I was rushing out to the bus to class in the morning and ended up still missing it. I came back inside and my roommate asked why I was back. I told him what happened and he immediately offered to drive me to my class and I still got there on-time.
I was at my friend's house after a plane ride back to VA and before driving another hour & a half back to our college campus. His mother had just met me and was very hospitable and gave me dinner to back on the road with me.
During a trip in Boston, we waited outside of a pizzeria in the cold for a table while half of our group ran to get something from a pastry shop down the street. When they came back we noticed a sign saying outside food wasn't allowed. The waiter nicely asked what kind of pastry they got & let us in anyway.
