Not really a good deed. But Starbucks messed up my drink and I got to keep both. Gave one to a homeless guy.

My co-worker at bestbuy was helping a gentleman out with a crazy bose sound system, my co-worker in the midst of the sale said that he could never afford such a thing, so the gentleman said I'll take 2 paid for it. As he carried out the system to the gentlemans car the gentleman took one system placed it in his trunk and closed the trunk handed my coworker the receipt and said heres yours... totally caught off guard and left. no joke.

went to shoppers to buy smokes after my grave shift,
saw typical richmonite struggling to park her little civic.
instead of saying "fucking richmond" or get choked like i usually would,
i waited another 3 minutes for her to park got out and spent a few seconds giving her pointers.
thanked me and smiled so hard, made my day

Not a random act really but here's what a bunch of us are doing this Wed.


I have a friend that was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last Aug and most recently he found out it has spread to his liver and his health is going down really fast. He last wish he has is going to his favorite camping spot for one last time but the issue is his health is so poor he wouldn’t be able to handle the couple hour drive on the logging road. A bunch of us pitched in money to rent him a helicopter this Wed and his wife is going to take him to an appointment and surprise him so he will get his last wish. Over 50 of us will be waiting for him at his favorite camping spot so when he flys in he will see all of us standing there waiting for him. Going to be so fucken sad but I can’t wait to see the look on his face that his dying wish was fulfilled.

I'm picking up something for bcrdukes because he's elderly.
Jk

On a serious note. Personally I'm really against donating money to the homeless straight
But I was at ceilis the other night and this man approached me asking if I could buy him small food
He also said he was allergic to gluten. So is my best friend
So I bought him gluten free food.

A few nights ago when it was raining HARD, there was a couple standing in the rain without an umbrella at a bus stop. I pulled over and gave them my umbrella that I keep in my car. The guy accepted it and said thanks.
That's the second umbrella I've given away to strangers, lol. But I remember how shitty it was when I had to take the bus and it started raining out of nowhere.



On another note, came across this video.

I was leaving the office and headed down to the parkade. I'm in my car, about to leave and then I see this tow truck plowing down the parkade entrance. I didn't think much of it but then my dad (who was driving infront of me) suddenly stopped and I turn my head to see what he was looking at..and I see the towing guy about to tow my friend's car!!

SO I bust out of my car screaming for the guy to stop and ask him what's up as I saw another car with a ticket. Then he says he was called to tow her car away (I guess she had an unpaid parking ticket from Impark) so I told him to hold on and I'd get her right away. Anyways, long story short, I ran up back to my office, told her what was going on and then we went downstais while my dad was basically blocking the tow guy from leaving. LOL (my dad!)

My friend ended up paying the guy...$40? to have him stop from towing her. I mean..it sucks she had to lose $40 but at least it was better than $100+.

I'm a bellman at a local hotel and on Thursday night i was standing by the entrance greeting guests when i noticed a guy with MS struggling to walk with his walker and he had a couple of bags. He wasn't a hotel guest or a customer to the hotel he was just meeting a friend. So i went up to him and got his bags immediately without him asking and held his hand and walked him all the way downstairs to his car. When we reached his car i said have a great evening sir and he said "i don't have cash to tip you, but as soon as i get home im emailing your manager". Havent heard of a email yet but he was really thankful and i felt really good doing it especially because my uncle has MS. Most bellman wont help non-guests because theirs no money in it and it really doesnt matter and it takes up your time.

The biggest surprise for me was that he was able to drive a big truck with his condition.

Hey, murd0c, looks like an awesome day for camping!

Couldn't have asked for better weather under the circumstances, yes? (At least sunny where I am at the moment)

We don't know your friend, but wish him well. Any friend of yours is a friend of ours.

I wanted to thank everyone for the nice kind words. I'm beyond amazed how the weather turned out with the sun and blue sky. He was able to stay for longer then originally projected and was feeling good and able to walk around the whole time.

It's hard for me to express in words how much the moment when he gave me a hug meant especially being in the outdoors and not at a hospital or being in a bed. I don't remember the last time I have been this emotionally drained from anything but it's a great moment I will never forget for the rest of my life and brings tears to my eyes just typing this out.

His sister posted this response to what we did for him and it just gives me chills down my spine

Quote:
"There are no words that would even come close to express the gratitude I feel towards each and every one of you today who made this a day to remember for my brother, my sister-in-law Tina and my nephew Taran. Today...Peter’s 4x4 group (Fun In BC) surprised my brother with a chartered helicopter ride for him and his family and good friend Donna, to his favourite camping spot in Harrison. I hear the turnout was amazing as all his camping buddies waited on the beach with their 4x4’s to watch Peter’s helicopter land. My brother cried in my arms tonight saying he had the most amazing friends...and I agree. All of you made today so special and your generosity warms my heart. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...you brought a smile to my brother’s face!
This is Pete



and this is the reason why this is his favorite camping spot




Here is the blog his sister has been writing since they found out. It's very sad but a great way to keep track of his progress.

http://www.simplesite.com/peters-sissy/114452685


Even more sad I found out on Wed that the Cancer moved from his Liver to his brain and they had to stop Chemo and was given two weeks to live 11 days ago. Hearing that made Wed that more meaningful and as well hopefully gives him more strength to fight it a bit longer.
