Faith in Humanity


MM, Just when I have lost almost all faith in humanity I watch a video like this.


Now, I am not the best person in the world. At time I can be a real asshole, but I realize things need to change for the better. Here's my cahllenge to you guys. Share a story of a time you have shown some kindness to another, or someone has given it to you. Thank the person at the drive thru window for doing a good job, give out free hugs, help the elderly across the street, maybe something monetary. It doesn't matter as long as it restores the faith.

Here's one of mine. This was just before Christmas and my wife and I had put gifts for our daughter in layaway at Toy R Us. Not because we needed to make payments, but just to keep them out of the house. The day we needed to take our things out of layaway a lady paid our total on the things we had in there. About $100 worth of gifts. She also did this for 9 other folks that were outstanding on their accounts. We went to pick up our layaway. Now at first I thought "Wow, free stuff! Let's take it and run." Then something washed over me.

There was a lady next to us who was also past due on her layaway, and they were going to cancel it on her. Mind you these are gifts for her children which she couldn't afford. Her balence was around $130 and she simply couldn't pay it. She wanted them just to take it back. Now, I'm not sure about you guys, but I believe no child should go without a Christmas. At this point we decided to pay it forward and paid her layaway off.

This wasn't to make me feel better. I did this for her. The look on her face when a random stranger was showing this kindness to her. It was incredible! She was so happy! Her happiness just lifted everything else off my shoulders. It truly is an awesome feeling when you can make someones day.

If we all did something like this even once a month. Think of what could be possible. It does not have to be monetary, like I said above, even hugging a complete stranger could truly make their day or even their week.

Share your stories! I want to hear them. And let's keep this thread going!

You still got those handful of people that will hold open a door for you. Even the small things count for something. But stuff like this, this is where we can see the good in people. Its there, its just that people overlook it and think only for them selves.

Witnessed one the other day at work.

I was called out to deal with a gentleman who was getting irate. Our hotel requires a deposit, $100, to check in. Usual policy dictates that you cannot use a cash deposit if it's a same day booking. Locig stands that most rooms that sustain damage or end up missing items are those that are walk-in's or cash deposits. The gentleman did not have a CC and was walking in off the streets with no reservation. I made a judgement call and ok'd a cash deposit that one time only. He hit the roof and claimed not to have the money. Now honestly, who comes to Vegas with no cash? About that time the guy next to him looks over, pulls out a $100 bill and puts it on the counter in front of him. Mind=Blown. He told the guy he had it for him and to relax, life's not that bad. I explained to the gentleman that hotel policy is that anyone registered to the room can pick up the deposit, there was no promise he would get the cash back. He looked the guy straight in the eye and said that he either get's the cash back or he knows who not to trust ever again. Part of me wanted to applaud the man and the other half was jaded and felt he was a fool. A well meaning and generous fool, but a fool none the less. We got the guy checked in and everyone involved talked about it all day. Kindness is contagious.

I checked the next morning and the deposit was not refunded to the guy who made it. I'll make no judgement, one hopes he needed that money for a good use and it has helped him out, but to say I'm shocked would be a bold faced lie.

Re: Faith in Humanity


Last week at work an African fella came in with his vehicle. His complaint was that it had a bad vibration at slow speeds and it went away at higher speeds. I instantly new what it was (broken belt/separation). I pulled the guys car in and lifted it up. Well sure enough, he had a broken belt. Not only that but his other front tire had steel cords showing. He also needed a couple outer tie rod ends and a wheel bearing.

I quoted the guy and it came out to a little under 600 for two front tires, both outer tie rods, a hub, and an alignment. He needed it really bad as both tires were on the verge of blowing out. I gave him the estimate and he told me he just couldn't afford it. He was really nice so I marked down the parts a little bit to see if I could get it in his price range. I got it down to 450ish and gave him the quote again. He still couldn't afford it. I felt really bad but at this point there wasn't much I could do without getting in trouble for changing prices.

He told me he would have the money in a few weeks so I set up an appointment for him. As I was getting all the info entered in the computer, a lady that was sitting in the waiting room came up and asked me if she could pay for it. I was shocked. I told her that was her choice. She kindly agreed and paid for it right then and there as her car was finished and she was getting ready to leave. The man thanked her and gave her a hug with tears in his eyes and she left.

It was truly awesome and inspiring, I had never seen someone do that before. Makes me wish I made enough money to be able to do that

Wish I could say I've seen these or even been the generous person on one end of it, but the kindest thing I usually see is doors being held or covering a strangers meal or something like that. When I get more into my career, I hope to be making enough to randomly drop a few hundred bucks for someone. It would make my week.

Not much but,

The other day I was driving to go get some food and there were a couple of guys pushing a car from a turning lane trying to cross the highway. I helped them push the car about. 25 miles until the entrance of the gas station. About that time 2 more guys show up out of no where and help pushing. We finally got it to the pump and they tell me they work live about 30 miles away and their boss had not given them money to fuel up the car. They were driving a cobalt. I had $23 and was starving and needed gas too. I gave them $13 for gas thinking that would surely get them home. Put $10 in gas and starved for the night. Next day was pay day.

I'm sure most everyone's happiest moment didn't involve money. Good thread you started. Touch one person, and they will touch another.

A few weeks ago I was in church. A woman who just got saved, looked down on her luck. I had held on to my offering, so at the end of service, I gave it to her. She was crying and gave me a hug.

A few months ago our apartment maintenance guy (who I am pretty good friends with) was telling me how his daughter who live with his ex-wife, his mom and his sister all hit him up for money leaving him without much money so he had to pawn the tools he works with nearly every day to have some money for himself. This guy will give you his last dollar and help you with anything you need. He was telling me he did not have the money to get his tools out of pawn and was not sure what he was going to do. He wasn't telling me this to get me to loan him money he just needed someone to listen to him and he was venting. The next while at work on patrol (I'm a police officer) I stopped at all the pawn shops in our town until I found out where his tools were. Long story short, I paid off the pawn and told the lady to call him and tell him his stuff was ready to pick-up and told her not to tell him who did it. It made me feel good that I was able to help someone out.

Last Christmas I was at the mall with my dad and sister. We decided to stop at Caribou and get a coffee. While we were sitting there drinking them a young girl (who I think was a CPA) and a girl in a wheelchair (she had some disorder, probably MS) walked in, ordered and sat down.

My dad noticed it, gave my little sister who was 10 at the time $30 and told her to go buy a gift card and give it to the girl. I'll never forget the look on their faces when my sister gave it to them. In fact, I'm tearing up a little just thinking about it. A little bit truly does go a long way.
