Do a good deed.

Recommended Posts

Funny, I try to do a good deeds, just the simple things, let someone out at a junction, let someone in front of you at the checkout with less stuff. I let women walk in front of me or hold a door. Stuff that takes nothing to do but can have a positive impact on someone's day. 

I did a good deed a bit more than the above the other day and I was amazed at how shocked the person was that I'd stop to help them and I just wondered is it just me or do others do it. 

Years gone buy it was the norm, people would do things to help others, why has this stopped?

You’re just a sexist pig. Why do you just let women walk infront of you or hold a door for them. Do you feel pitty on them and think they need it? Or is it a perverted thing 

No, it's called manners mate.

I always try and do people good deeds day to day,if somebody needs help i don't mind in the slightest helping them out,what goes around comes around pal.

I agree people who are negative and selfish are always the ones moaning about life. Totally agree with what goes around.

Helped a granny who collapsed due to her face mask... next day pointed out to an old bloke he’d just dropped £70 in the shop queue... didn’t cost me anything, didn’t get anything in return - except knowing I’d done the right thing.

Hats off, so many would have walked past her or pocketed the cash.

I give homeless people food and drink quite often. If im getting a coffee for example, il just grab a croissant and give it to someone. 

Central London has a massive homeless-ness problem, the salaries walking past every day, it costs very little to make someone’s day a little better.

Giving someone food or a coffee is a nice thing to do, seems to be more and more people homeless.

Sometimes I well up mate! Breaks my fuckin heart!

We've all seen the youtube video setups where a homeless person is given something, then they give it away again without a thought. 

Its normally the people who have nothing that give. 

 

I remember a bloke worked for me on a work placement once and he come it one day with two lottery tickets for a big roll over, he said that ones for you Phil. Broke my heart, bloke had enough for a packet of fags a day. I used to throw any extra hours at him for a bit cash in hand, he was with me over the xmas and that year the lads got about £400 each in tips, he was so happy. Lovely bloke.

I always try to do a good deed for someone everyday it costs nothing and gives you a lift,as well as the person you do the good deed for.

I remember years ago giving a homeless person £20,a women saw me doing it and looked at me with disgust.I sat down with the guy for an hour or so,and learned about his life and how he ended up on the street.

After sitting with him,I then went and bought him a load of food that would last him a few days.I then went on my way shopping.on the way back I passed the guy again,and I was touched by what I saw.he had been joined by a couple of other homeless people and had shared the food I gave to him with them.

What a beautiful thing to do!

Anyway.fast forward a few months later I was walking through the town again and was surprised to bump into the homeless guy again.

He thanked me for what I'd done for him and said that by the kindness and love I'd shown towards him he had managed to clean himself up,get a job and a place to live.

I have to say it brought a teat to my eye.

I never saw him again after that.

You never know the effects that one kind act can have on a person, yourself and the whole world.

All the good you do comes back to you,maybe not in the form you give it,but it will come back to you in some form.

You have to give with a loving heart though,with no thought of return.

Im guessing you are in your 30's or above? 

Its the younger generations I've noticed are selfish twats when it comes to helping others. Not all younger people but the good manners seem to be degrading with each generation
