I was out walking on Rachadamri Street this morning- around 7:45 a.m. It is common to see Monks out for morning alms about this time, generally morning alms take place from 5:30 a.m. to around 8:00 a.m.
What is not common is to see a car pull over on a busy street like Rachadarmi, park illegally with the hazard lights on, have the driver jump out with a plastic bag and run after a Monk. The Monk was walking the same direction; the driver of the car hustled past the Monk, knelt for respect, removed food from the plastic bag, placed it in the Alms bowl and received a blessing from the Monk.
The Monk walked on, the driver hustled back to his car, still running and still parked illegally and just barely out of traffic, turned off the hazard lights, pulled back into traffic and was gone.
Maybe two minutes total, from pulling over, running past the Monk, kneeling, giving alms, receiving a prayer, running back to the car and driving off. A morning commute, giving and blessing included!
