My husband was not a really caring person when it comes to other people but lately he has been helping out others which I find very refreshing. Well we have a neighbor that moved here a few months after we moved in and my husband made friends with him. They talked often traded tools typical neighbor relationship. We have shared food with me and stuff like that as well. Well my husband noticed 2 months ago the our neighbor had a really small old tv like ones people have in they're kitchens. We had a 40 inch tube tv and upgraded last month to a bigger LCD flat screen. So my husband decided to give the nieghbor the old tv so he could watch tv on a bigger screen. A week ago my husband went to run an errand and when he came back he saw the tv we gave him sitting outside his door and he was talking to some people that were clearing they're back seat. I saw from our window the people load the tv in the car and pay our neighbor money for it. I could tell that my husband was upset about but he did not say anything. On top of that our neighbor has not came over since which is unusaul. Do you think my husband shouldn't be upset about it? I mean our neighbor gets money from SSI and an agency pay all his bills I think because he has an illness. My Dh gave the tv to him just a few weeks ago to enjoy not to sell. I just hope that it does not change my husband's mind about helping out others.

i would feel a little upset but i would get over it because he might have been really hard up for the money. maybe he was very thankful when he got the tv because he saw $ signs and it allowed him to get stuff he really NEEDED. although the tv was a nice gift he didn't need a tv, so he might have sold it to purchase something he needs. either way he benefited from the gift. it would be a different story if he threw it away in the dumpster.
