After a long day’s work, employees robotically head to the parking lot to retrieve their cars and drive home. Same goes for parents, whom after a tiresome grocery shopping with the kids, return to the parking lot loading up one by one all the bags containing grocery items and other stuff they may have bought.
For most people, retrieving their cars from the parking lot is routine, much like an involuntary muscle doing its work without the prodding. One thing that could break this pattern is finding a note in the windshield.
While most of the time notes left on windshields are product brochures or real estate listings, sometimes drivers stumble upon personal notes intended for them.
For instance, ijreview.com featured an unusually touching note clipped unto the windshield of a car whose batteries are drained as the headlights have been left on by its owner.
“The story has blown up in a big way on Reddit, with over 1,500 comments. It’s a reminder and example that a simple gesture of kindness can have a big impact.”

But not all notes that can be found on windshields are heaven-sent letters addressed to the car owners. It could also be expressions of frustrations towards them by their fellow car park occupants.
Buzzfeed.com rounded up more than two dozen passive aggressive auto glass notes left for the car owners to read.

But what if instead of a note, you saw a hundred dollar bill? Fox6now.com warns, you should not get the money because it is a carjacking bait which has happened in Las Vegas and in Maryland.
“When you get out of your car to retrieve your gift, there is a scammer waiting around the area and rushes into the driver seat of your car. You are left without a car, and who knows if you’ll still have that $100 bill.”
