Give Away: A Few Blocks of Dryness
At some point in your life, you've been both people: the one who forgot her umbrella at home and curses herself as she runs madly down the sidewalk in the rain, and the one with the umbrella. When you're the latter, asking the sodden woman beside you at the crosswalk, "Would you like to share?" can totally transform her day (and yours). Chatting is not required, nor is walking her all the way to her destination. Still, those few blocks where you're able to shelter her from the storm (literally) may just inspire the fickle god who causes umbrellas to break every other time to extend that ratio to one of out every 10 times.
