The Universe waits for the moment we expect the least in order to shower us with its generosity. Some might say the reason is pure luck, others believe that we’re getting rewarded for a previous good deed. Either way, receiving free things or extra nice service is always wonderful. But what makes us happy deep down is not the material stuff we got, but the fact that we feel extra special that day thanks to that simple gesture.

Bright Side can’t get enough of the positive vibes a good surprise can spread. We’ll share with you some situations that make us feel like we hit a small jackpot.

1. “Can I get extra eggs?” In Tokyo, Japan.’’
