  • The All-New Random Acts of Kindness Thread

    Been awhile since we had one of these, so figured I'd start a new one for everyone to share some good stuff we've done for others lately.

    Last week, on the way to work, I was behind a truck that had one of those "Complaints or Compliments, Please Call (800) xxx-xxxx" I noticed the driver was very courteous to others around him, and drove safely, so I decided to call. It only took a few moments of my time anyway. The operator seemed ecstatic that I was calling in with a compliment, and asked a few questions so they could log the details and inform the driver's manager.

    It made me smile and hope that maybe that guy would get some recognition at his company, just for being safe and courteous, and maybe spread that inspiration to his co-workers to follow.

    So, what have you done lately for a complete stranger?

    This week I donated to charlies lunch.
    every 2 weeks I pick a place to send money to. my way of helping those less fortunate then us. I do try to be kind to some one every day, if its at a store I help those who need help, if its out and about I open doors, and do what I can. If its a kid I see on a corner selling coolaid I give them 1.00 ( will not drink the stuff). I just like to bless those little hearts who are trying to make some money.
    I do more, but I do not want to sound boastful

        you know what you can do? mow an old persons lawn one day....or a young single moms ! open doors for some one, anything is doing something. and I love the guy behind me. He does random acts for some one every day! Yesterday he weeded my whole back yard ! mowed the back by the alley and cleaned all the weeds. I was floored. in the winter he shovels my side walk, and several other peoples. last week I saw him mow yards while the people were gone. He is a wonderful person, he and his wife!

          At work today there was a huge table that was probably waiting about ten minutes to order, so they were getting a bit impatient, but an old guy walked in. I took the old guy's order first so that he didn't have to wait for the big table's food to get cooked first.
          What an idiot....

          Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

            Well I am polite...and I remember when I was @wdw....the exit of the swiss family robinson tree house has a swinging gate and I stood by there and held it open....until park security came by and told me to stop because they thought "A roudy teenager they are going to release that gate and hurt somebody." But that did not even cross my mind...I just wanted to be kind....stupid security having stereotypical views of teens...I was there for a good 18 minutes...lol

              I had an obviously drunk man quietly removed from the Nickelodeon area at USH this afternoon, his proximity and overt over-interest in the wet, playing kids seemed more than enough motivation for a service to the public.

                I was standing on line in the grocery store the other day behind a homeless man. He became very upset that he couldn't find his money and left the line and his few groceries behind. I watched him going through all of his pockets and growing more upset so I approached him. I asked if I could buy his groceries for him but unfortunately he grew very irate, accused me of trying to push him and said I was yelling at him. Of course, I hadn't touched him or raised my voice in any way. I decided at that point that it might be a good idea not to push the issue. I wish I could have helped him though.
