Just one moment

I went to the gas station and like an idiot left my wallet, I just wanted to buy cigarettes (before you say it, yes, I know I'll get the cancer, I'm fully realizing that, I'm okay with it, I'm just gonna jump off a building when it happens, but for right now it keeps me sane, I like to borrow against my future, probably not healthy but we cope in our own ways).  I went to the counter and he said "6.67".  I reached for my wallet and SURPRISE, that shit is not there, because I've been so distracted today I forgot my whole life at home.  I ran to my car and came up with 6.62.  He just said "I have some pennies, it's cool" and reached for his own pocket.

 

So I went to my house and got a five dollar bill and brought it to him because today I had a compliment call from work, which means a $10 gift card or so, and I figured I should pay that forward for him being so nice to me (it was an army vet, he was so kind, so nice... I mean I kinda wanted to put his gun in my mouth, if ya know what i mean, but hey man, he does him and I do me, and I feel like he's not all about teh gey, so I was just like man, you are an awesome person).  Just waltzed in and said "Thanks for not being a dick, my man."  He said "No problem, thanks!" and we moved on from that moment, both smiling, because at that moment in time, we were both struggling, my limping ass going in there, him standing there probably considering how he's gonna burn that place to the ground, but we got to a point where we could both be happy.  

 

Moral of the story: Don't be a cunt.  You never know when someone will give you a %5000 return on your investment.  I'm bad at percentages, though, so check my math there.  It's either 500 or 5000 percent, fuck me, I'm not good with numbers, %500 percent, right?  I mean you just move the decimals... goddamnit, math.  I'm more a language guy.  And I'm literally too lazy to google.  POINT IS HE PAID A NICKEL AND NOW HE MIGHT SMILE FOR A FEW MINUTES.

 

Another side note, all of you here have been so... damnably nice.  Jesus.  Like for real, it makes me wanna cry, because I cannot believe that even a few people have said something kind.  Keep on doing you, you guys.  I wish you all the best. I've learned lately that:

 

If you never say anything, nobody can help.  You might feel like you're causing drama, or anxiety, but unless you yell as loud as you can no one will pay attention.

That sentence is the most important out of all you have written.  Charity, kindness works both ways ... you have to ask to receive. You have give people the opportunity to help, because many of them really to want to. Out of the goodness of their hearts.  i know this is true, because i've lived it.

Kindness really is a precious commodity and a little of it can go such a long way.

Truer words haven’t been spoken.  

 

You and Razor move me so much.  Bless you both.  :hug::hug:

Paying it forward, even in ways that may seem insignificant, really are impacting. They're positive points in time for both the giver and the receiver, and they put positive juju out into the universe, which is something we all benefit from. So, thanks for doing what you did and talking about it.

Wow... Everyone here has focused on one great point, and Summarizing it tells me something I have known, but feel the need to share..."The fact is we all were designed to need each other not bleed each other... It is so amazing how many people just think of themselves,  in certain instances yes... But the overall is we are destined to need each other and All our qualities we have just a form of enhancing those around us...encourage, and Love Without conditions... I have met a lot here and they are modest... Another fine quality...not tooting our own horn...!!! Strength in Numbers... Like a cord of rope...!!!💖💖💖💖

this made me laugh! it's true though, it might be harder to not be one, than to be one, but still

there are quite a few really good people here, i'm glad that you have discovered that

this is so true, people can't read your mind, if you don't let someone know there's a problem, it's not ever going to get fixed
