There aren't too many times that seeing a meter maid -- sorry, a parking enforcement officer -- will make you happy. Let's face it: they're not the most liked folks around these parts.

But YouTuber Sam Pepper shows us a different way it can all go down when he posed as a meter maid and initially annoyed quite a handful of drivers before they realized what was really going on.

“I made this video, and made 5 people smile, but what has happened is that now that over 136,000 people have smiled in less than 12 hours,” Sam Pepper wrote on his Facebook page.

Could this video, which has now reached over a million hits on YouTube, spark a change of heart on this profession? Unlikely, but the random act of kindness is heartwarming.
