What was the last thing you did to help out someone else?

It can be anything that would make someones day better or easier (hold the door for a stranger, give up your seat, feed the homeless, etc)

Last thing I did was hand the toll booth operator a $10 & told him to use it on the cars behind me till it was gone...my portion was $2.50. It wasn't anything big but I hope it made some people smile.

I like to buy coffee for the person behind me in line at the coffee counter.

If I drank coffee that would be a nice thing to do for someone.

One day last week in Walgreens, a woman knocked down a whole bunch of stuff from the top shelf, and she was too short to get it back up there, so I put it up there for her. It was no big deal.

I always try to go out of my way to be polite in public if I can, I think it makes a big difference in everyone's day!

I swept MIL's kicthen floor. We went over for the day, and Johnathan threw some of his mac and cheese on the floor, so I cleaned that up, and just swept the rest of the floor while I was at it.

We stoped to help someone on the side of th road about a week ago. He had allready called a tow truck. While he was drivng ALL the lugnuts on his tires came off. Luckily he was able to control it and get it safely off the road. We offeren him a tea since it was so hot out and no shade.  About 2 weeks before that we had a tire blow out, and no one stopped to help, it was really scarry, and even though we have stoped to help others in the past, there is no way I want any one to have to go through what we did.

Uh... making dh dinner doesn't count, does it?

Helping make a young mom feel competent and capable... I think that was the most recent thing.

I invited my S/O's female bestie and her son to come stay with us while they get settled. She's bouncing around from place to place and can't find a job in NYC so I told him to tell her to come here where as long as she's looking there ARE jobs and rent is so much cheaper than NYC. Plus like our son, her son is special needs and the school system is better up here.

My bestie of 18 years is a guy and lives 2 blocks away from us with his family so no issues with trust here. :)

Hope she and her son can have a welcome change in life for the better. She's super excited about the move.

I do that some times...once I was in the line at the store & 2 foreign gentlemen (I live near a military post that has a lot of foreign officers), the cashier asked if they had a rewards card...no they said...I said they could use mine. They were shocked I was so helpful & said thank you over & over again.
