Where are you located?

Personally, I would have taken the dog in.

*Edit: I just reread what I wrote and it comes off condescending. This was not my intention. What I meant to write was that I would have taken responsibility for said animal as I'm in a position where I can do this. I wholeheartedly believe that sometimes animals choose you to be their partners in crime and this may have been one of these moments.

Stopped by Home Depot to exchange some blinds.

Was at the Customer Service/Returns counter and I was the only customer there.

The Home Depot employee did the exchange and everything went smoothly.

Behind me, 2 seniors were walking slowly, one with a cane (and the other was supporting the other senior with the cane).

It was obvious that walking was at least somewhat difficult for the senior with the cane.

They asked another home depot employee where to find swiffer wetjets.

The home depot employee told them to go to aisle 51.

The pair then started to walk slowly to that aisle.

I knew that specific home depot well enough to know that aisle 51 is one long-ass walk, so I politely asked the pair if I could help them go to that aisle and get what they needed.

They said yes, described what they needed, and wanted 2 of then, and off I went, with my fast-walk walk.

I came back with the $25 x 2 Swiffer wetjets.

I waited for them and walked with them to the cashier.

After looking at the swiffer wetjets, the senior with the cane said she needed a "dry" mop swiffer.

I asked them to stay near the cashier while I went back to aisle 51.

I then proceeded to go back to aisle 51 and came back with 2 different options, one being $11 and one being $18.

Bingo, they said those 2 optiosn were correct, and they decided to choose one or the other.

At this time, I told them to take their time to choose, and that I had to go, and we went our merry ways.

They were very gracious.

Took the kids swimming today, opened a locker a found a wallet. On my way to the front counter to hand it in to lost and found, figured I should take a peek inside to see if there a decent amount of cash I shouldn't trust the youngsters working the counter with.. immediately saw some American funds then a decent amount of Canadian money folded in half. Didn't count it but lifted it up a little and saw two $100 bills right away.. could've been more of them in there but didn't want the guy to catch me counting his cash lol. There was at least $300-$400 in there I suspect, maybe more.

Decided not to hand it in but checked out the license and thought I would look him up and return it in person if he didn't hurry back. Hung out in the lobby for a 10 mins or so and saw him return. Gave him his wallet back, he was definitely appreciative but must have had kids in the car because it was a quick "thanks a lot, man!" as he hurried back out to the parking lot.

so yesterday on way back home i stopped by a store to pick up some water

so walked in the store to pay for my water and i found an iphone 6 on the counter & my guess is it must be the girl that just walked out that left it there

this is china & most ppl would have just took the phone, but i ran out to see if i can still catch the girls............but i couldnt

i told the store owner to keep it for now (i trust her), the girl looked like someone that makes an average living & that she still paying off her phone (u can lease phones in china and pay every month, then the phone is yours permanently)

it would really suck balls if she lost her phone and still had to continue doing monthly payments for it



also found a iphone 4s just last week, the phone was cracked & the lcd was sort of messed up, so i gave to the CS at the mall & they me the "no one would want that" look

if they have icloud signed in, and find my iphone turned on and all that jazz, taking the phone is useless. even if you can get past the first simple lock screen, you cant do jack shit about the icloud without their icloud password. you cant even reset the phone without that password.

Reminds me of a scam where some people would leave their phones in front of an atm and later if you tried to return it, they would accuse you of stealing it and extorting money for the phones return. Using the atm camera as evidence, calling the cops, and then ask if you want to just settle. (this is in asia of course). The case would obviously not go through but the stress of the process would make some settle by paying. Pretty fucked up.

Saw another guy with his hat out asking politely for change outside Save On this evening, he had a really soft voice and there weren't many people around so I figured he wouldn't be getting much and might be going hungry. I asked him if he was hungry and was trying to get something to eat, he said yes so I told him I'd be right back with a sandwich. I grabbed one of the premade sub style sandwiches and a chocolate bar and brought them out to him, he was really thankful and told me he'd be bringing it to his girlfriend that hurt her foot and is stuck staying in their camp (wherever that is). In hindsight I should've gone and grabbed him another sandwich but I derped at the time.

my foreign friend learn a valuable lesson in china yesterday when he saw a homeless begging on the streets

so instead of giving him money, he gave him a bottle of unopened water instead & somehow the homeless guy started choking on water

so at this point someone out of no where started accusing my foreign friend for trying to get the homeless guy sick, but at this point the homeless guy was fine & turns out he just drank water too fast

my coworker told me this morning to just watch out for these things, never give a homeless man food cuz if he becomes sick then your responsible (fake or not)

Not many stories as of late in this thread, but I had a "nice" moment this morning. I don't see the garbage truck in my alley too often, but today I saw them coming around the corner. I ran into the house and grabbed a tin of PC chocolate coated cookies that I have in case of emergency (unexpected guests). When I gave it to the dude at the back of the truck, he was so appreciative. Him and his buddy were really happy about it. It made their day and their reaction to it made my day.

That's one shitty job. I remember seeing the guy get vacuum dust all over himself because one of my dumbass neighbours didn't bag it at all and just dumped it into the bin.

I remember seeing the neighbour across the alley giving the guys a bottle of his home made wine during last run before christmas.

Little things to make someone's day go a little better................. that's all it takes.

^ that's a nice gesture, but the fact a city employee dealing with waste services is actually a really good job.

Shitty smelling job maybe. No more heavy lifting with automation. Pensions, benefits a salary well above average. No education required. In reality it's a bit of a jackpot of a position if you can handle the smell.

Maybe a simple, "bump," to this thread would have been more beneficial.

Anyway, I don't think how many benefits or how much someone gets paid for whatever has much to do with it. It was something unexpected and "random". A doctor who looked after one of my kids when they were very ill got a bottle of sake from me. That bottle meant something to this guy, who probably makes a shitload of money and can afford a boatload of sake. It was a simple, "thanks" from me.

He didn't expect it and like I said, it meant a lot to him. I could tell from the smile he had on his face.

Oh, another one............ it happened to me two days ago. I went back to where I used to work before retiring. Dude who I didn't know that well came up to me and said, "You know, you're one of the good ones. There aren't many of you good guys left...... just wanted you to know that."

You know how much just hearing that meant to me? I can't remember what I said back to him, but his "nice gesture" I will treasure. He wasn't the boss or the person who signed the paycheques. Just the groundskeeper, who knew more about the place than anybody else.

BTW, dude gets paid peanuts, but he absolutely loves his job and from what I hear, everybody loves him.

Was at ikea, and blocking the underground lane a guy was loading up his van with two queen mattresses and a whole shit load of long boxes, couple cars honked at him as they squeezed by. I stopped my car blocked the lane and got out to help him. We loaded the boxes had to rearrange shit to fit(basically empty the thing) we got it fit in much to the chagrin of people trying to get by lol
He was much appreciative and we shook hands and went our way. Let me tell you those boxes were heavy as fuck and I give the guy props for getting them out to his van by himself he ruined his outfit with all his sweat poor guy.
