Of course this has nothing to do about topping what the nicest thing to do it was making someones last wish possible and the result exceeded my expetitations by far. This is a massive unique thing that happened but even by doing the smallest thing with helping someone I get the same enjoyment but not even close to emotional to this one.

Oh yeah, not suggesting it was, was just being... metaphorical, or something.

A helicopter I will never need, but if and when I do, I will make damn sure they will be the ones I call. So good it all turned out so well.

I keep telling people that it's not how much money you have or how famous you are. You are the richest person when you have good friends and family. And, you usually don't have any of the above without being a genuinely nice person.

Everything a person does affects others in so many ways. Just hearing the story of what Pete's friends did for him or what others have done in this thread makes a difference. I have faith in humanity. There is still good in a world that is full of misery and evil individuals.

Revscene has its share of douchebags and assholes, but for the most part, it is a good place. I need to meet you one day, murd0c. .........and not just because of the pics you sent me the other day, LOL.

Lots of things happened recently.

Friday, drove some people home from a party that I didn't have to. They lived near UBC and I lived near Boundary. I drove them home.

On Saturday, I witnessed a car accident at Home Depot on Bridgeport. I took the lady's driver's license and information and passed it down to the victim. She was very happy about it and everything.

Couple of hours after I was building furniture for my dad, my dad tells me that he got a car for free. Ford Probe GT 1989. He asks if I would like to have it for my summer car because it's a standard transmission.
Heck Yes.
Love you daddy.

Picked up a backpack for a family because their child dropped it during dinner. Small thing, but I felt like I wanted to do it.

Last week i came home and there was no parking on our side of the street (Residents Only) , so i parked on the other side in a 2 hour parking zone.
The next morning i start getting phone calls and doorbells to find that it was my neighbor that saw my tire was marked by the city of van and i would probably have gotten a ticket in two hours if it wasnt for her.

Was out last night cruising with the gf.. Stopped off at DQ in Kits.
Overheard the homeless guy after me ordering yet didn't have enough money to get cheese on his burger.

Turned around and asked him, if he wanted anything on the menu what he would have.
He said a Flamethrower burger, so I ordered him that meal, and upsized the drink & fries.

I'm not one to give out money, but everybodies gotta eat.

Woman posts photo of $1,000 tip on $60.42 meal

A waitress and Tumblr user who goes by the handle "Casual Cynic" posted a photo of a receipt that made her mom's day.

A mysterious customer recently gave Casual Cynic's mother, also a waitress, a $1,000 tip on a $60.42 meal.

Next to the tip, the uber-generous customer wrote, "Your ticket to Italy. Enjoy!!"

On her Tumblr blog, Casual Cynic explained that her mom had been chatting with the customer about her desire to see Italy and how her ancestors come from Florence.

From casualcynic.tumblr.com:
SHE’S [her mother] GOT 8 YEARS OF ART EDUCATION AND SHE’S WORKING A WAITRESS JOB. IT’S PRETTY… SAD AND DISAPPOINTING, I GUESS. HER AND MY FATHER DIVORCED 6 YEARS AGO AND SHE HASN’T HAD A REAL JOB EVER. JUST BEEN STUCK IN A SMALL TOWN SHE’S NOT FROM.
THIS MAN WHO WE HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE TIPPED HER 1,000 DOLLARS FOR A TRIP TO ITALY. WALKED OUT, NOT ANOTHER WORD.
…YOU KNOW. JUST WHEN I START TO LOSE FAITH IN HUMANITY…. HM

The post drew more than 100,000 notes on Tumblr. And yes, Casual Cynic is aware of the $0.42 addition error on the receipt. In a quick update to her blog, she wrote, "We know about the 42 cents, lol… We have it covered."

The Upbeat was unable to confirm that the receipt is 100 percent legit, but we're choosing to not be casually cynical about it. Because, after all, these things do happen. Last year, we posted a story about a man whose last wish was to have his brother leave a waitress a large tip. After raising money online, the surviving brother now travels around the country, leaving big tips to people who don't expect it.

Waitress's $1,000 Tip From Stranger Funds Dream Vacation To Italy (PHOTO)

Quote:
We've all had moments at work and thought, "I need a vacation." And fortunately for one over-worked waitress, a dream vacation just became reality, courtesy of a stranger's kindness.

Per the Tumblr of "Casual Cynic," a photo of a restaurant receipt shows a $60.42 charge for the diner's meal. Below that, in the "+ tip:" column, sits a sum destined to make one waitress's dream come true: $1,000. A note points toward the tip and reads, simply, "Your ticket to Italy. Enjoy!!"

An edit by Casual Cynic acknowledges the mystery tipper may have missed adding $0.42 of the original amount to his total of $1,060.00, writing with a laugh, "LOL... We have it covered XD."

Some backstory, provided on the Tumblr, explains the waitress in question is Casual Cynic's mom, who had mentioned her Italian heritage in passing conversation with the diner. "Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she's never been." After leaving the tip, the diner simply "walked out, not another word."

Here's the full story:

Quote:
So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about... 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she's never been. She got 8 years of art education and she's working a waitress job. It's pretty... sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn't had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she's not from. This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1,000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.

The cutest 90-something year-old lady wearing a name-tag saying "Hug Collector" came into my store today to talk about getting a pay-as-you-go phone then out of nowhere she asked if I wanted a hug. This simplest act of kindness made my day

Speaking of elderly women, I ran into one in my apartment mailbox area, and I was waiting for her to open her mailbox - when she suddenly burst out laughing.

Turns out she sent a letter to herself because she wrote her name/address in the recipient as well. We both had a good chuckle, and she held the elevator door for me until I was able to get my mail.

I went in for an ultrasound today at MedRay, parked on the street because I thought I got lucky with a free spot but it was infront of a hydrant. Was about to pull a U-y to park inside the paid lot when a young woman drove up next to me and asked if I wanted her parking validation ticket.

It was seriously the nicest thing I've had encountered in a long time (kinda sad if you think about it) and I was very grateful for her kindness especially when places like these doesn't exactly shout FUN. People are here for x-rays, ultrasounds, mammography, MRIs etc etc and although it's not always for something bad..you never know who might be going there because they received not so great information. Her gesture was small but a little goes a long way.

I got out of my car and thanked her as she left. (If you're on here..or someone that knows this girl who was here today--Asian, drove a black civic..2006+ model..THANK YOU!)

Then I waited in my car for a minute or 2 as I left for the next person to pull in which happened to be a woman who was probably going in for a mammography as she parked in that area of the lot. I could be wrong but regardless, I wanted to continue the good karma onto someone else and hope she passed it on as well.
