I always have an abiding memory of my sister. We went swimming at the Crowtree and afterwards went into McColls. She was probably 6 at the time.Took my lad for a walk to the shop. He is 4 and autistic and whilst he likes being outside that's no mean feat. I promised him an ice cream and a drink when we got there. When we arrived he chose what he wanted and as I went to pay I remembered I had gotten a new phone and my card wasn't registered. I couldn't pay - this would end terribly. The lovely lady behind the counter pulled her own purse out of her pocket and paid for it. I drove back later with a bottle of wine and some chocolates but I was quite touched.
Owt could have happened to you. You got lucky imo.When I was a lad, I moved down south to work for a short while. I got off the train at Angmering and started walking to Rustington where my digs were. Two old ladies pulled over in a car and asked where I was going. I told them and they told me to put my bags in the boot and they dropped me off at the door.
I also found a purse in a taxi, Located the lass through FB (when i had it years ago) and arranged to drop it off, she was over the moon.Years ago me and @sproates33 were driving up Springwell Village bank in the Winter with snow coming down. There was a pissed up old bloke lying in the road. We got out to check if he was alright and he said he was fine and was walking home but he was going in the complete opposite direction as he apparently lived in Washington Village. So we helped him into the car and drove him home and helped him into his house to make sure he was alright.
he does that every week! he waits until people are buying beer and queues behind them.Last week I was in Lidl stocking up on beer for the weekend.
I put the bottles on the belt and put the divider thingy down, old couple behind me.
The old fella asks what beer I was buying, told him, he' said something like I'll give it a try sometime, his mrs said something about not having the money to waste on booze.
I paid for the beer, waited until they had got their stuff then gave the bloke two bottles.
He was properly over the moon while his mrs just looked shocked.
A couple of quid to see someone that happy was a very small price to pay.
