Default Small Victories


I was listening to the radio this morning when I heard a very interesting a funny topic.

Small Victories.

These are the victories in life that you get that do not require a large amount of effort but are a win.
For Example you are driving down the highway obeying the speedlimit and a car speeds past you when you mutter "Idiot". A few miles down the road you see that same car pulled over an a Highway patrol officer giving him a ticket.
Another example is putting your hand into a jacket pocket of a jacket you have not worn in ages to find a $5 dollar note in your pocket. If it was a $20 then that is a big victory (not what were talking about here), or if it was a $50 note then its stupidity.

I'll start:
I packed away my 40k for the semester. After the semester had finished I unpacked my 40k when I found a unbuilt crisis suit at the bottom of my box of bits I had forgotten about.


Have you guys had any small victories you care to share??

I was in Ireland, Galway exactly and I was grabbing a quick bite to eat at a McDonalds there (I needed cheep food). I was short on cash and it was late at night. A couple of guys cut in line and were drunk. One reached in his pocket and pulled out some money and a 20 pound note fell on the ground, they moved forward, picked up their food and left. I picked up the note and had enough cash for my trip. ;D

Thats awesome. I have another McDonalds related win I just remembered.

It was during rush hour I decided to pop into my local Maccas. The line was huge and I was getting frustrated. As I made my order they chucked a fresh batch of fries into the serving thingy. Well worth the wait.

Man, I often find small notes in my pockets unexpectedly. Usually after big nights. My life is one small victory after another.

Also, once i found my penis.

I also then proceeded to annex it with one o' them little cocktail flags...Haven't managed to get my hands on it since...Seems that one little prick is all it took to scare it off...
