They are a wonderful thing those little random acts of kindness - be they opening a door for someone, letting someone go first, or lending your eat to someone who needs a rant.

Share the random acts of kindness you've done or the acts you've been treated to

No matter how small or great they make me all fuzzy xD

Someone thought I worked at ASDA and asked me where the fish pies were. I didn't even get angry at them for mistaking me for an ASDA employee, I just took them to the right freezer. I feel almost angelic.

How insulting.

Edit: I work for Waitrose, so that is friendly rivalness not just prejudice against ASDA employees.

Lol i didn't want to post any random acts because then it would like i've made this thread to get some glory lol!

But i'll share a couple of acts that i've recieved!

A complete stranger online saw how rubbish my computer was (had listed specs) and sent me a graphics card and some RAM - he built computers so they were jut spares but it was still an incredibly nice thing to do!

and today i was ten pence short on pic and mix and the guy behind gave me ten p



Jurisprude thanks for the random act Check your rep! I left you one

I ALWAYS let people on and off the bus before me. Sometimes I think I'm too nice, especially when I'm squeezed out of the train on the Circle Line at Paddington.

May 16th, Canterbury gets free carrots!

Oh, and I paid some girl's bus ticket when she didn't have enough dosh in her pockets, and the alternative was a scramble through her bag. About £1.50, I think. And it wans't for anything, either.

Not to sound like I'm blowing my own trumpet, but I do this rather a lot.

- I'll always open doors for people, no matter how ugly, old or male they are.
- Couple of weeks ago I brought a burger for one of those guys holding up a sign saying 'SALE - this way'. He looked happy, so it made me happy.
- The other day I was on the bus and I had a big packet of chocolate buttons that I was finishing off (my friend gave them to me, I couldn't eat a whole packet...). Anyway, the toddler opposite starting crying when she saw the buttons, and asked her mom for some, who in more words told her to **** off. I gave her the whole packet, or what was left
- I've paid for people in front of me in queues two or three times when they're <£1 short.

I seem to do it more than I get it, though. That's karma baby.

On a similar note how awkward is it when you and someone else approach a door from opposite sides, and then you both go for the "you first" signal? And then one person has to concede defeat.

It's not awkward if you're a true gentleman. What you do is you hurry up, open the door and stand aside to let the other person glide through unencumbered. And then you get to stare at their arse..

Nah seriously, just do that. I always do it. It's more polite than just holding a door open behind you for someone.
