just finished watching this and i feel like i need to rant

After watching it made me think with a different perspective. The part where the homeless man opened the blanket i realize that now a days people take what they have for granted, to you might just be a blanket and you think oh wow just a blanket but you have to put yourselves into others shoes to see what its worth to other. To see the smile on his face when he saw the blanked was the best part of the video and to see him hug and cherish the blanket. It really made me think different it doesn't matter what kind of car you drive or how big your house is, that does not determine the person you are


Looking back i realized i should be grateful to be able to have loving parents who toke a lot of the money they made for the 25 years of being in Canada and spend it toward me and my siblings to have a happy life and to have the many things that we wanted. i asked my parent why they decided to buy me a merecedes for my 19th birthday and they said " we just wanted you to have the happy childhood we couldn't have back when we were children in vietnam.

'It doesn't matter how much you have, what have matters the most"

These are just my thoughts and opinions.

Someone else's act of kindness.

Pip the pup, 10 months old, slipped past me in the garage and took off.
Crap!

I walked the neighbourhood for an hour.

'Phone rang, neighbour had the pup. Sweet relief.

Effusive reuniting ensued, JOY!

Went to 7-11, engaged in some small talk with someone sitting outside. Asked if he was hungry since it was dinner-ish time, but he said no its alright. Bought him a cup of hot chocolate since he mentioned it was cold.

So yesterday the fire alarm went off at my condo and obviously the elevators are shutdown during fire emergency. So I had to make my way down 25 floors of stairs in my shorts at 8am in the morning... a couple floors down I caught up to an old Filipino lady that was going down the steps really slowly and carrying 2 plastic bags, so I offered to help her carry her bags down the rest of the way. I stayed with her all the way down because it looked like she was struggling, if she couldn't make it I was planning to carry her.
When we got to the 3rd floor, the speaker system announced that it was a false alarm ... then I asked the lady if she wanted to just take the elevator back up to her room, she said no it's ok, she was gonna head down to P1 to dump her garbage and points at the 2 bags I was holding .....

OMGWTFBBQ?!?!?... she decided to lug two bags of GARBAGE down 20 floors in a FIRE EMERGENCY?!?!?!?!... so I politely told her she should never to do that again incase it was a real fire, the garbage bags would slow her down and risk more problems, she smiled and said ok thanks... LOL WTF?!?!...

You cared enough and the old lady may not remember who you are, but will remember the kindness.

You are a good person........... that's all that matters.

thank you

Bought a homeless guy a hot chocolate and a poppy seed loaf outside the starbucks on Robson. was a hell of a cold night, felt like doing something good. He looked at me with disbelief when I gave him the starbucks. I should be doing more nice things more often.

not sure if right place but....

Witnessed a New diver trying to reverse park yesterday took him three times to park. First he bumped into the car, then scrapped along side it, and finally made it into the stall on the third try. So I show him how to reverse park right beside him lol. He just sits in his car, so I get out and look at car he hit and there are some deep scratches, then i take my phone out and get both license plates down before heading to class. This morning i decide to call dial a claim and wait on the line for half an hour...... Finally on the line to report everything and it turns out that the car filed a claim for a hit and run yesterday.

METRO VANCOUVER -- Surrey bus driver Surjit Singh Virk is still smiling about the random act of kindness he witnessed last Saturday on a cold and rainy day coming home on the bus.

He noticed a man wearing plastic bags on his feet instead of shoes.

Virk then watched as another man came onto the bus, heading to Guildford. The man initially took a seat beside Virk, but then he too noticed the man with no shoes and moved across the aisle to be closer to him.

“He (the second man) started to take his shoes and socks off and I wondered why? He slid his shoes over and said he should take them. He said he lived nearby. Wow, I was so inspired by it. It was soul touching. He simply got up and got off at the next stop.”

Virk, who happened to have his phone out, quickly took a photo of the unknown good Samaritan as he walked barefoot away from the bus stop. He then spoke to the man who was putting on the shoes.

“I asked him if I could take his picture and share his story with the people. It was amazing to see something like that. It was one human to another human. It was shocking to witness something like that.”

Virk, who wasn’t working at the time, said he was coming home that day from the Vaisakhi parade, where there was a collective spirit of charity.

But this was different, he said.

“This was a random act of kindness. He noticed something and thought this man’s needs were greater than his own. Then he did something to help.”

was working on the inside of my car when i started hearing this knocking noise, i thought my fuel pump was making the noise so i stopped working and kept hearing the noise, i looked out the back and saw an older lady driving with a flat tire, apparently someone slashed her tire and smashed her window, she was trying to get to a repair shop a block away from my place so i told her to pull over so i could put her spare on for her, took me 5 min to do it and she was on her way

i just got scammed for $50 this morning when i was outside going to work, i was going to the garbage can to throw something out & saw an old lady picking up garbage so i gave her my $50 bill

she thanked me & walked away, then just when i turn my head back i saw her pulling her smart phone making a call..............i was like

after i got on the bus i offer my seat to ppl that need it, i know seat offering isnt much but back then in the early 2000s no one in china did it (when i went there for a vacation) & now only like 1% of ppl do it (which is slightly better then before)

So... you scammed yourself then?

Cuz I mean, I'll come pick up garbage in front of your place if you'll give me $50 too. I have a smartphone and all, but hey, fifty bucks is fifty bucks...

Was sitting in my car when I see this Accord clip the bumper of the TT-RS. Damage to the Audi's bumper and rear wheel was minor but I still made sure the lady stayed and luckily I was able to find the owner of the Audi at the Starbucks. The owner was very grateful and I just told him that if it was my car that got hit I'd want someone to do the same. (*I know that the Audi's parking was a bit meh but still)

Saw a homeless women today. I see her there regularly. But today I saw her hunched down crying. She doesn't look like she uses drugs, so I thought she might've been hungry or something. Even though I'm currently a full-time student, I ended up giving her a decent amount for a meal and she was genuinely thankful for it. She disappeared right away so I hope that was the case.
