The honest thing is not immediately as tempting as just taking the money out of a wallet we just found, but some of us think what we would do if we were the ones that lost that wallet. So, you can see why it’s difficult to be honest when nobody is around to see and judge you.
However, when Sydnee went through an unfortunate moment one day, she did the right thing. She bumped her car into another one as she was trying to get out of a crowded parking lot. After writing a note with her phone number, she got back the surprise of her life!
20. DRIVING TO THE MALL
It all started with a regular day out shopping when she got into a difficult situation. She was getting ready to leave her car in the parking lot and go shopping, but that trip would start badly because the parking lot was very crowded.
Sydnee had no idea that her decision she took one day at the mall would lead to such a surprise.
19. THE PARKING LOT
Some drivers just hate parking lots because they must look for a parking spot. And when you finally found one, you realize there is not enough room to open a door! That was exactly what Sydnee realized as she pulled into the parking lot. She was an experienced driver, but it happens to the best of us.
18. FINDING A SPOT
That particular day appeared to be more crowded. So, fitting the car into any spot would have been a solution – but this spot was too small. Sydnee found it, but as she pulled in, she saw she could not open her door. Therefore, she backed out, thinking she would have to find another one…
17. SHE BUMPED INTO ANOTHER CAR
It was that moment when she backed out to look another place that she realized she made a mistake. She accidentally bumped into the vehicle next to her as she was backing out. She could not believe this would happen to her, and she immediately panicked. This was her first accident ever!
16. PANICK SETTLED IN
Not knowing what to do, as she never faced such a situation, she had no idea how she could handle that. We all know how we would react if someone hit our car – it’s not a pleasant feeling at all! But before panicking a lot more, Sydnee struggled to get out and see how much she damaged the other car…
15. A BLACK SMUDGE ON THE BUMPER
The good news was that bumping into the other car didn’t end with anything broken. The bad news was that her car left a black paint smudge on the other car’s bumper. The woman felt guilty about it and went inside the car to write a note to the owner of that vehicle…
14. LEAVING A NOTE
Sydnee felt very guilty that she bumped into another car and explained in the note what happened. She left the note under the vehicle’s windshield wipers. The message also included her phone number, so that the owner would contact her for insurance information.
What she did not know was who would later read it – prepare to be amazed!
13. STUART EDGE, FAMOUS YOUTUBER
The car belonged to none other than the famous YouTuber Stuart Edge. If you are one to follow YouTube for the past six years, then it’s impossible not to have heard or seen him at least once. His channel has gathered two million subscribers and hundreds of millions of views.
12. MORE THAN 2.4 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS
Edge has YouTube in September 2012 and has produced many popular videos – some very funny, while others were truly inspiring. He now has more than 2.4 million subscribers and over 307 million views. This man’s video content got so popular that he even got acknowledged by Justin Bieber and Chris Pratt on social media!
11. THE LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON
The most popular video – “Mistletoe Kissing Prank (ORIGINAL),” has gathered over 28 million views since it was posted in December 2012. Since that time, Edge appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
What he did not know was that someone in the parking lot has bumped into his car. He would soon find the note…
10. SYDNEE WAS LUCKY
You would wonder how lucky was Sydnee that of all the people she would have “bumped into,” it had to be a famous guy on the Internet! But, famous for his pranks and good deeds, Stuart would get even with Sydnee in the coolest way possible. Here is what happens…
9. HONESTY ABOVE ALL
Stuart and his friends were close to the spot where Sydnee was shopping. They were filming for their next video. As they finished their task that day after a few hours from Sydnee’s “accident,” Stuart got back to his car. As he saw the note, he asked his friend to take out the camera and start filming.
8. HE DIDN’T EXPECT THAT
What he didn’t expect was to find these things written in the note! So he read out loud the note into the camera. He looked at the car bumper and saw a barely noticeable mark. He couldn’t believe that someone honestly left a note for such a minor thing which wasn’t even a scratch!
7. LET’S PRANK HER!
He was in awe with Sydnee’s gesture, and while thinking how to react, someone in his crew suggested they would prank Sydnee. They then devised a lighthearted joke and prepared to record it all for their next internet video. Here is what they did…
6. CALLING SYDNEE
First, Stuart’s friend called Sydnee and pretended she was the owner of the car that the woman hit. Sydnee apologized and agreed to meet the owner to exchange information. Then, it was time Stuart played his part!
5. THE MEETING
After Sydnee was informed to go to a nearby place, Stuart and his friends parked across the street and saw a young woman waiting at a table. Cameras filmed everything as Stuart approached and sat at the table next to her as if waiting for someone. He looked at her, and they started talking…
4. HITTING A CAR
He asked the woman why she was there, and she explained the whole event, telling him how dumb the accident was. She also said she was waiting to meet the owner. Then, after some small talk, Stuart pulls out a piece of paper.
3. TRUTH HAS BEEN REPAID
Stuart pulls out what seems to be a white note – the note she wrote for the owner. Stunned, she wonders what’s all about, but then he tells her it was a set-up. He points to the camera and tells her who he is, and Sydnee cannot believe it. And that’s not all!
2. HAVING AN HONEST HEART
For telling the truth, Stuart gave Sydnee $200 and made her famous in his future video. But in the end, the most important thing was that this woman had an honest heart and an inspiration to everyone.
1. TRUE TO YOURSELF
It’s so great to see people are true to themselves and honest. Not everyone can display such gestures, but we can all learn to be better. If we would have the chance to tell the truth, even with nobody watching us, we should all take it!
