Some orgs will let you exchange your time to corner work for a track day credit. The person mentioned above corner works all day, earns a credit, and then donates it to people they like or they think would benefit from having it. Very discretely, and without trying to draw attention to themselves, just quietly doing really nice things for folks...
so for example, on sunday at msrh for the bbq, how many corner workers were there? workin i mean

Big ups to this person. I like this thread. IMHO people like this generally don't get the recognition they deserve.

*don't know the guy/girl, but I hope to meet him/her

This individual came to me with that offer too....

Anyone that knows 'this person' and many do, always feels welcomed and the friendship they offer.

Kudos to the non-gender oriented corner worker we shall continue to name 'that person.'

I'm pretty sure I know who you're talking about, and yeah first class for sure. The first [well the only] time I met her she treated me as if we'd always been friends.

Those corner workers work for MSR-Houston. I am not sure of the exact number though.

"This person" is probably just doing what they love and wanting others to experience some of the kindness they hold in their heart. With so much selfishness and plain ol' meanness in the world, it can be amazingly refreshing to be giving and loving. Everyone should try it some time
A smile to a stranger, for no reason other than to smile, could be one of the greatest parts of that strangers day... ya never know who may need a smile.
