Random Acts of Kindness

I've seen other forums with similar threads and I find it is always nice to see/hear kind stories about humanity versus the regular gripes. So, share here the good deed you've done for the day. I'll start.

I went for breakfast with a client this morning and we met at this greasy spoon he likes to visit - good food, large tables so we can spread out paperwork. Anyways, an elder woman with a stroller came into the restaurant, she even needed the waitress to open the door for her as she couldn't let go of her stroller.

While my client was gabbing away, I was half listening to him and half listening to this woman ordering; she was asking the waitress how much toast would cost and how much a coffee would cost and did the coffee come with a refill?

After our meeting was over, I went to the back of the restaurant where the waitresses gather to bring out food, asked the one girl if she was serving this older woman and she said she was indeed. So, I pulled out a $10 bill and asked if that would cover her meal? The waitress smiled ear to ear and said it was more than enough. I never told the woman what I did.

We left the restaurant out back, chatted some more, and by the time I was leaving in my car the older woman was outside walking slowly. She saw me, stopped, smiled and waved quickly. Made me smile all afternoon.

I'll try to keep it going as this is too much of a coincidence to pass up. McDonalds drive thru this morning getting coffee. 2 lanes for ordering. I order and start to pull forward. Driver next to me also pulls forward at about the same time. Pretty sure I was first and I had the inside lane, so I kept on, they yielded to me. 75% sure it was me first. Look in my rear view mirror and see its a young gal with 2 little kids loaded up. Its about 6:15AM and 22° outside, last thing she probably wanted was some inconsiderate schmuck racing her to the first window. So I paid for my coffee & bought their breakfast. Didn't look back so as to not creep her out. Cashier thought it was nice.

Mentioned this to a co-worker this morning who advised WalMart now carries McCafe coffee for my Keurig machine, so officially (for the 19th time) I have no use for McDonalds anymore.

Well I'm usually not a philanthropist but a local 6-year-old girl was sent home from kindergarten Monday with a fever and passed away in her sleep on the living room couch. From the reports her family are Chinese immigrants who came to the US in 2005 seeking a better life and found Oologah, OK - a small town of 1,100 and the birthplace of Will Rogers. She was the youngest of 5 children.

Go fund me if you have an extra few bucks, I just donated anonymously myself. I'm sure the family isn't financially prepared to deal with this tragedy.

i don't know how people here Chive, but RAK can go a LONG ways. a few dollars can make a huge difference to people even if its not needed, just to know there are still good people out there willing to think about someone else in a selfish society.

good job guys and keep it up. ill challenge everyone that reads this to do at least one RAK in the next week that you normally wouldn't do.

Was driving down the road to work today and saw 2 guys trying to push their Dodge Ram up a slight hill due to their car not being able to start back up. Decided to pull over and give them a hand with pushing it off to the side of the road. When I approached them they looked surprised I was there to help haha. Made my day knowing I made someone else's.

I was passed by a Nissan Altima this morning that had Washington plates on it. I caught up to it at a red light and noticed that the fuel door was open and the cap bouncing around. So, at the red light I decided to hop out and to twist that on and close their fuel door. The old couple inside at first looked scared but then were smiling and waving so much that they were holding up traffic when the light was green. lol.

They don't like you getting close to their stash.
