What is the nicest thing anyone not related has done for you?

The owner of my SO's company bout our house for us and is letting us do land contract. He is a great guy. Born in Germany aboandoned by his mom at six during WW2 He would pick up smoke butts off the ground and reroll cigs for money. His dad a solider found him wandering the streets barefoot. The man is a self made millionare and shared with us so we could have a home for our family.

 There were 6 kids and two adults living in a 3 br trailer He said we deserved better b/.c we were good people.

I got laid off from the small oil company I worked at, right at the time DH and I were planning our wedding.  They were bought out and the new company had their own accounting department, so me and another girl got laid off, along with many of the other people working there.  The petroleum engineer was also getting laid off, yet he walked in one day and handed me and the other girl each an envelope with $150 in it!  He just wanted to give us something to help us out, it was so sweet.  She and I took a little bit of it and went in together and sent his wife some flowers.

When I was pregnant with my DD my boss threw me a big baby shower and she and the other dentists in the pratice got together and got my DD 2 $500 savings bonds. She also paid 100% for my health insurance even when I had to cut my hours back to part time. She is great lady...it is really to bad that we moved so far away, I'd go back to work with her in a heart beat.

Once I was about two hours away from home and my tire blew.  A complete stranger stopped, two kids in the car, and changed my tire and put the spare on.  He was in a hurry but my spare immediately went flat.  Instead of saying Sorry, I tried, and driving off, the guy put HIS spare on my car AND followed me for a couple of miles to make sure I was okay.  I tried to give him $20 for his time and effort and he told me it wasn't necessary--that it had been worth it for him because it helped to teach his children that a little kindness went a long way in brightening someone's day.
