Randon Acts of Kindness Thread
Over on Pauls Thread about helping unload a refrigerator, it was suggested there should be a Random Act's Of Kindness sub-forum. Perhaps that's asking too much, but why not start a thread and have others keep it going?
I'll start, but remember this is not about me or any poster, its here to show that RAK exists and maybe encourage others so when the situation presents itself, they will do something similar and then share.
My most memorable RAK happened the other day when I was grocery shopping and I went to checkout. In doing so I got in front of a older woman with only a few groceries so I said...
"Jeesh I should have let you go first since you don't have many groceries." At which she said...
"That's okay, you see I got all kinds of time, its just the money I lack."
I half laughed and said...
"Well I'm the opposite. I got plenty of money but no time."
As I waited for my groceries to be tallied and bagged, I thought of the situation. It is getting close to Thanksgiving guys. I then sized up the womans groceries, guessed them to be about 35 dollars and when I paid, I gave the clerk an extra 50 dollar bill and said quietly, "put that towards her groceries and if its less, give her the change", and then walked off. My only regret...not being able to see her face when the clerk told her.
So that's my RAK...any other FWWer's out there doing some RAK's?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
