Some things delight us way more than they probably should. We're not talking about finding a lone 50-dollar bill on the street, or realizing last-minute that it's daylight savings time and you get to sleep an extra hour. Of course these little surprises would make you yelp in ecstasy.
It's these 5 little things that result in a baffling amount of happiness — much more than you might expect. For instance, competent customer service. You expect this to be horrid. It's like chugging a can of Natty Light or losing your virginity. You don't expect it to be awesome; you just want to get the damn thing over with so you can get what you need. But when your crud is actually taken care of in a timely manner, and you don't have to speak to a robot wearing a hearing aide for 10 minutes, it's like you just discovered that McDonald's French fries actually help you lose weight. It's amazing. This and 4 more things that make us oddly ecstatic here.
