A YouTuber took to his official Twitter handle to share an incident about a generous man whose car he accidentally bumped with his pickup truck while parking, the man’s response has left the internet speechless. Casey Neistat wrote a post saying that he had been complaining about Los Angeles a lot, but, in fact, has fallen in love with it. He told the users that in an accident this morning, he ended up hitting a car that got a small but noticeable scratch, so he left a note for the owner that said he would pay for the damage. Because he had left his phone number on the note, the owner contacted him with a heart-warming reply instead.
According to the text's screenshots shared by Casey, the man wrote in response, “thank you so much for the note. Please don’t worry about the scratch. Any money you had to put towards my car feel free to please donate to a local Venice food bank.” The anonymous car owner wished, “Have a great week”. Therefore, moved by the gesture, Casey made donations to the local charity at Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and shared the details with the man thanking him for his “understanding and generosity”. The man said the world needed more people like Casey in such times of crisis.

I drive a 17 year old lifted pick up. So no rear view cam and really hard to see what’s behind you. I’m also a terrible driver— Casey Neistat (@Casey) April 20, 2020
