Act of Kindness on way to the MTA

After the Bookspoke event on Bowery Street, I went to the downtown 6 train. I like the subway, well, I have a love/hate relationship with it actually. I looked forward to a easing quiet ride home. And I dug for my metro card and first swiped an empty one,Inefficient funds damning me. So I dug again. As I dig a hispanic man, an older graying man, with a cap says " need a swipe?" I say " no it's ok.." and he says " it's ok!" and he swipes me through. I say thanks like a New Yorker expecting to get robbed or hit on, and later on the train I wondered about his random act of kindness while reading my own book.
