    I remember asking a stranger in Tesco for 5p so I could buy a bottle of apple juice. Instead, she insisted on buying it for me which I thought was lovely.

    I went on a skip trip once with my school and couldn't stop sliding backwards towards the edge of this drop that was taped off, I was freaking out because no matter what I did I slid closer and closer to the edge until a random french guy going past dragged me by the arm to some flat ground. Thank you, random french man.

    A guy overhear my brother and I deciding on whether to buy a bottle of Lucozade or not as it would result in putting another thing back. He then gave us £1 to buy the drink anyway as he says he looks out for his "brothers and sisters". (He was also black haha).

    I did that once but the woman saw me and decided to stop running towards the bus for some reason. Cue an awkward silence for way too long when I pretended to be looking for my bus pass, even though the driver knew what I was doing and started to raise his voice at me whilst she leisurely strolled towards us. She didn't even say thank you

    A wee old woman at the bus stop randomly said I had the nicest shade of ginger hair she had ever seen and then gave me an extra 50p for my bus fare as I realised I was short when I went to pay.

    I went on to the wrong bus and ended up miles out from my home town. I had to request the bus driver take me to the home location free as I didn't have a mobile phone and the last of the money was used on the wrong bus! (I don't get out much, in my defense) Although now I look back, he must have felt obligated because I was younger but it was certainly a kind thing to do; given he could have said no and I'm sure there are some individuals who would!

    Silly me for making that mistake, however.
