This one really rainy cold winter day I was in the city and saw a lot of homeless people all bundled up. And it really got me thinking about what if I was in that situation, what would I want? So I went to this cafe that sells sandwiches and hot drinks for just over a dollar, and spent 15 bucks on a bunch of sandwiches and tea. Then I gave them out to whoever I could find..Some of them seemed so shocked, and it really touched me.I'm not sure why I just had this moment where I decided to do that, but I'm glad I did
Spent about 3 years helping mentoring someone in order to get their life back on track. Overweight, low confidence, and socially inept. Some gym time and life advice and 3 years later, he's become quite the specimen.
Wow!! What made you do such I think? Tell me more!
@apple24I used to be a lot like him. Porky, not very good at socializing. I know what it's like to be in that position.img.photobucket.com/.../bleh.JPG
Lol I am this is where I am in life! serious thou lol! I wish I had a friend like you! I been bullied or felt picked on many guys... Which has forever left me worthless, friendless, hopeless cause well now I am in college and it getting better just a little bit.
@apple24Good. Dig deep and believe in yourself. At the end of the day we have two choices:A - Become the worthless, weak thing that those assholes wanted you to be.Or.B - Take their insults, use it to fuel your fire, and drive forward harder than any of them can ever imagine. Trust me when I tell you nothing feels better than seeing a former tormentor realize that you've surpassed them physically, emotionally, and professionally.
Have an opinion?
Well, the value of nice deeds performed by myself are dependent upon the reciever's interpretation of them, so I can't say what the nicest thing I've ever done was. I can say, however, some of the nicest things people have done for me:-A friend and I went to go see a movie, but we didn't realize we were short on money until we got there. We were about to turn back and find something else to do, but a lady saw our problem and lent us more than enough money to get in. We were both super grateful and returned the money we didn't spend on tickets to her =)-I dropped my lunch box one day while heading into work and everything spilled out. I managed to put it all back easily enough, but just before I got to the doors of where I work, a man drove up in front of me saying he saw what happened and that he would buy me lunch, then handed me $20. He then wished me a merry Christmas, drove off, and made my day a whole lot brighter!-This one seems mundane, but since most of my "friends" at the time were rather deplorable, it meant a lot to me. I sat next to this guy on the school bus heading home (this was in high school), and while I didn't really know him that much, he struck up conversation with me and later asked what sort of music I listened to. I told him rock, which was something none of my friends liked, so I didn't share it much, but he nodded and asked if he could listen to some of my playlists with me. I was hesitant, but I let him anyway and he listened pleasantly until we got to our stop. He thanked me for sharing before we parted ways, but I ended up thanking him for letting me share what I like. It was nice to experience that feeling again. So there you go. Some of the nicest things others have done for me =)
Helped my friend online never actually met him but helped him get through him mom passing away and get his future plans at least outlined he changes it up every so often... But either that or saving my brothers life when he shot himself trying to take his life but I didn't feel obligated for the first one so I think it means more to me and it also doesn't come with tons of issues.
I was out running one day when these two little boys flagged me down. They had been walking with their grandmother when she fell down and hurt herself pretty badly so I stopped to help. They needed someone with a phone to call an ambulance and their family so I did that and waited with them until her family and the ambulance got there.
I have an orphan friend who has two sister, they all live with their grandma. there was a time she needed money for her younger sister school fee, I sold my phone in order to assist her.
Saved a young mans life after being stabbed not only was I able ot save his life I was able to save his leg from being amputated he is now married with a baby boy of his own. I ws invited to the wedding and his wife hugged me and cried and so did all of his family. At the time I was off duty I was a Fire Fighter/EMT back then.
I forgave and accepted a girl for whatever past mistakes she did, she was my girlfriend. And I was innocent and pure, and she wanted to be too.o. OAnd she did become so.Then things didn't work out later on but that's life.
I was a teen at the time with no money in my pocket. A homeless man asked if I had any food or money. All I had was a half eaten sandwich which I have him.He devoured the sandwich immediately in front of me.I could tell it has been weeks to months since he last ate anything.Although what I did wasn't life changing.It felt good helping him out for the timebeing.
Have - gave *typo
well I used to hang out with this girl and we became close and best friends I remember she needed a favor and I help her because she was very horny she wanted to have sex but I didn so what I did to help her out by fingering her pussy and giving her three orgasms less than 10 minutes after that we became really close
I spent my last $50 on some little old lady's groceries infront if me once while in line up at grocery store. Her bank card wouldn't work or she didn't know how to use it. I was in a hurry and just wanted to get out if there so I paid for her food so she could be on her way. The young teller nearly died. No big deal to me. Didn't even think twice about it.
Stayed up with my mom all night for two weeks when she was really sick and suicidal and tried to get her to eat and not hurt herself. Finally got her into a hospital. It all fell on me to help her and shield my little siblings cuz my dad lived in another state and I was the oldest child at home.I had a mental breakdown myself a month later from the stress but I think these experiences make us better, more compassionate people.
I was 17 at the time
I saved a little girl from drowning in the water park once, I was leaving (thus I was dressed in normal clothes) everyone just sort of looked at her all scared, i jumped int the water and helped her out, ruined the watch my good friend gave me and my outfit was soaked, but I saved her life:).
tbh i once missed my train because this old man had no idea where he was meant to go and nobody was helping him. he didn't even have a ticket and when i found out what train he wanted to catch i bought him a ticket with my lunch money (my tummy grumbles just thinking about it) and helped him onto the train. i still regret not staying him till he reached his stop cause I don't know if he remembered what stop it was. i couldn't sleep that night tho asdfghjkl...
Christmas before this last a gentleman was buying a bunch of stuff at my work. He was about $10 short for what he needed, and I told him not to worry about it and slid my own debit card through to cover the difference.
That was really nice of you 😊
I've done many nice things but the best in my opinion are random acts of kindness. Too many to mention and not trying to raise myself here I am just a nice person naturally. There still are nice people in the world. :)
Small compared to other people here, but I once helped the three most inept people of my class on a group project. I knew my grades would have been higher if I had done it alone or with other people, but I felt like giving them a hand. I also give loose coins to homeless people and street performers whenever I find them (and have change, most obviously).
It is a tie between giving money to the homeless, helping a fellow college student make the payment needed to come back to school the next year and staying up many nights trying to talk people out of suicide.
Saw a homeless guy with a dog which looked hungry so I spent my train money which I was using to get home and bought food for them both and water just to help out
omg that's so sweet! how did u get home though?
awww, how long did it take? x
Not long Like an hour or something like that
awww wow that's sweet of you!!! x
I helped lift her spirits and she truly does feel like an amazing individual. I think because that's what matters more.
I hate when guys do that. They think their helping but I feel like your damaging me. Stop making me think you like me or whatever! I'm an idiot! Lol low self esteem!
@Apple24 hey im keeping it real! the girl always knows my intentions :D
What your intention? Hmm?
@apple24 being an awesome friend and lending a hand. not everyone has ulterior motives.
Cooked for my family when my mom got sprain... hahaha... not nicest work on the earth but I'm a normal girl so I did some normal deed, I for once got my lazy ass in gear and cooked for my family for entire 3 days.
last month this guy was talking to this guy who worked at a gas station I was out and he was saying how his car broke down and he had to walk about 16 kilometers from work to home at 10:30 at night in the freezing cold and it was raining out, so me and my boyfriend gave him our number and told him to call us when he was off and we would drive him home, we ended up bringing him mcdonalds and a coffee and gave him a safe ride home. I told him if he ever needed a ride home to call me and I would get him there :)
when i follow someone here in GAG... i give them 1 Xper point when i follow them... i'm nice, don't i?
I let an older person to take a seat on the bus, helped my classmates on tests, gave them homework, made people feel better
I was sitting in my work van one Winter waiting by the trainstation for the residents of a building I worked for to drive them home after work... I saw a girl with a lot of bags and saw that she dropped her huge purse and didn't even notice as she ran down the stairs into the station. I just got out and ran down the stairs to see if I could catch up to her but she was gone. I didn't even bother to look in the purse and turned it into the police station... the police asked me if I could leave my name and address I didn't want to but they suggested that she might give me a reward.. I really didn't care about that but did it anyway... about a week later I received a nice card and a $50 money order and the card saying thank for being so nice I wishave there were more people like you in the world... it felt good she made me smile but I really didn't want any reward I did it out of my heart and would want someone to do the same to me if anything like that happened.
Bought co-workers lunch, Gave co-workers a ride home like a million times, paid for someone else's food at the drive through, wiped off a snow covered vehicle and drove this fancy $80 grand vehicle to the door for this old man that spent a night at the hospital, gave money to the homeless like a dozen times, gave a girl who broke her arm some meds for the pain and decided to go without myself, loaning people money even though I know they won't pay me back, mowing lawns for free, snow shovelling three of my neighbors driveways. I have done a lot of good things actually :)
I don't think I'm fit to judge that. I just try to be nice to people I feel are nice as well, mostly small things, and don't really expect anything in return. So what it's not a big thing for me, sometimes it could be for someone else.There was a point in my life that getting a kind warm smile from someone, even a store clerk, could be the nicest thing anyone did for me the whole day. Or week. As we don't know what's really going on on someone's life, even when it seems the person has it all, I just try not to ruin anyone's day or make it worse than it already is.
I went for a holiday to Cambodia at the end of 2013 and the start of 2014 (my home country) and did some charity things over there for a couple of days with my Aunty. We went into the countryside and distributed food and water to the less fortunate. I was able to buy a truck load of stuff.. I also donated money to build a school.. Went to the army base as well and have food to the soldiers. It's a great feeling to know that even something small can have a big impact on someone.. The little kids came running up to me, and I talked fluent khmer with them.. They were absolutely shocked. They didn't think an outsider like me was/is one of them.. They all called me elder sister which is respectful in a way.. *oo tears, someone grab me a bloody tissue* but I'm glad I could help those children have somewhat a brighter future :)
I gave $300 to my best friend to help him pay for his first month of rent when he moved out to Nevada.
not even a single... I am not a good guy... live in a shell like demons...
I always hold the door open for people out of habit whether it is a guy or a girl.
Hmm I don't know to be honest its kind of hard to choose, most of them are around the same level I took a homeless guy into a restaurant and let him order whatever he wanted. I became friends with a old blind man, bill we call him bill the blind man, if he could get a ride to the gym I would always take him home after I got off of work so he would be able to come and workout and have a ride home. I also have become good friends with a stroke victim one heck of a guy to I help him when he trains in the weight room, keep him company things like that, though he is a people person and is beloved by tons of people. And I generally just help people out whenever I can.
Too many to count, or brag about. Honestly, I prefer to be the villain!.
That feeling when you try to be evil yet you fail at anything but stepping on insects...
@Noxifer626 I'll take that as a compliment. I'm inclined to not wanting to help others (psychologically) but I'm always thrown at emotionally-charged situations. And talking about insects, just literally when I was writing this my mum caught a wasp in her hair and considering I am allergic to stinging things I was really brave helping her out lol!
It still counts, I guess.
I've done so much nice things for people I lost track lol
I taught a man to walk again after a massive stroke.
I make cookies for special occasions and hand them out. That about it.
Pulled A Grl out of the ditch with my Awesome new Jeep on her way back to Collage.
Uhhh, I give discounts to people every work day. Yaaa that.
Dont know and dont care... i dont keep counts or records!
I carried an old man back to his house because he couldnt walk. Hell of a day
Saved a life (maybe more).
Me too :) *high five*
@DontDropIt - We'll make a team of such people ;)
i don't flush. I conserve water for our community.
Being a human shield
Nothing is the nicest thing I can do for someone.
I bought a guy I went on 3 dates with invisible socks because I saw a picture of him wearing shorts with long socks, a moisturizing cream cause he has dry skin, and a soap box cause he didn't have one. But before I got a chance to give it to him, I decided to stop seeing him since I sensed that he only wants sex
I am unable to do someone a favor :( I need help!
The nicest thing I have ever done is impregnate my wife so she could give birth to our 2 lovely children.
I gave a poor family in Africa a Cow
I was in a restaurant waiting to pay and noticed that the guy in front of me was short on money or had forgot his wallet. He went to put his stuff back and leave I stopped him and paid for his meal. He insisted that I go with him to get his wallet afterward so he could pay me back I but refused and told him just do something nice for someone else. This isn't the only time I've done this.
I told his wife he was a cheating scumbag. She stayed.
