Something you did kind today

Hey guys, I just thought I'd share a topic about you being kind to someone and maybe they gave you something in return even though you didn't expect anything.

I'll start it off;
Today I was driving some back roads when I saw an older man struggling to get bags of manure out of the back of his truck. I ended up driving past him then looking in my rear view I said to myself "I'm gonna go help him" I turn around get out and offer him help. I end up moving about 14 bags of manure for him, at the end he offered me money I said "No, sir no thank you, I'm just helping out" he said alright well follow me. He ended up taking me to the back of the barn/shed and gave me a tour of his entire gun collection which had around 50+ guns and a lot of old restored tractor equipment along with tons of stories about how the equipment was passed down. After today it inspired me to start this thread to see how many other kind people are out there.

So with that said lets hear your stories!!

Hmm, I'll play

I took a picture of this car

P6112038 by 808domi54, on Flickr

Printed the picture and framed it, went back to the autocross and gave the owner the picture, I made the guys day.
He offered me money I said "nah man its a sweet car no need to give me money, I'm just a high school kid that likes cars." then his wife offered me to ride along with him while he was racing, I said sure.
What a great experience, good to know I made someones day.

Now I know I might get bashed for giving away a free picture, but I have a deep love for Z cars and the guy was a really really genuine person. I don't think I've ever smiled so big in my life, it was raining, the track was wet and we were doing wet runs so we got sideways on every turn, he was one hell of a driver. good stuff!

I offer help daily and generally get none in return. Very few thanks even.
Never stops me from helping though.

I took this pic from another forum member who said he wished the old people on the bench were gone:



And I spent an hour editing it so that the old people (and the pole, and the powerlines) were gone.
