A stranger created a parking spot for this kid’s bike—and Twitter loves it


Anyone who’s ever lived in a big city that parking is a painful experience—and personal parking is an absolute luxury. But one lucky kid became the proud owner of such a luxurious commodity when an anonymous neighbor designated a spot for his kid-sized bike.

Mashable reports that Christie Dietz, a writer, tweeted a photo on Monday showing off her son’s parking spot, now designated with a sticker that includes photo of his own bike.

“My son has parked his bike by this lamppost just about every day for the last year,” Dietz wrote. “This morning, this sticker had appeared. Absolutely made our day. People can be so brilliant. Thank you, whoever did it.”

“I did very much get something in my eye when I saw it,” Dietz added.

The photo and the story behind it touched hearts across Twitter, with people noting the sticker was a beautifully tiny of act of kindness.

Dietz said she plans to write a thank-you note and leave it on the lamppost for the anonymous do-gooder.
