The Thread of Basic Goodness

Postby leokef on Sat Jul 17, 2010 9:28 pm

Saw this:

and noticed the number of topics just so happens to be the number of the beast. Well I can't stand for that, so here's the thread of basic goodness come to save the day.

So I guess we just talk about acts of kindness and goodness that we perform in our daily routine.

Like uh, let's see. Lately I've been trying not to leer as much at random women when I go shopping. Or I wear my sunglasses more often so it's not as noticeable.

Oh! Here's a good one. It was a couple months ago, but there I was in the grocery store and I saw this older lady trying to reach a big pack of bottled waters way back on the top shelf. So I just went over and grabbed them for her and placed them in her cart.

Plus, although this one's not as good, a little while ago a couple cyclists were hogging the road and I successfully resisted the urge to run them over, then get out of the car and desecrate their corpses. This is more of a negative good act, not a positive good act, but just the same.

When I saw this, I hoped no-one would make a topic so it'd stay that way for a while.

So there I was, picking up water at the store the other day. At first I think all the shelves are empty, but from the corner of my eye I spy maybe a dozen containers on the bottom-most shelf--all the way in the back and nearly inaccessible. I consider my plan of attack while making a circuit of the aisle. Back, I see an Indian-looking guy flat on the floor, reaching all the way in there to snag about five for himself. I joke with him, "they're making it hard for us today, eh?" and his ambiguous look perhaps betrays a lack of English skills. A plan then comes to me, and I head to the household cleaning aisle right next door. I grab a sturdy-looking sponge mop and return to the water aisle, where I stately kneel and finagle a few waters for myself. A woman remarks next to me, "Oh so that's where they are." I ask if she would like me to retrieve some for her.

She declines, but after I finish--I decide to leave the mop there for anyone who might need it.

Felt great.

When I read the title I thought we were gonna talk about basically good things. Like I'm drinking chocolate milk, and it's just good. Like all the time. There's never a time chocolate milk isn't good.

Um. Today I held the door open for the hot guy at work that always hits on me. :biggrin: That counts, right?

No! Must be altruistic and without potential personal motivations.

Holding door open for potential lover--bad!

Holding door open for stranger--acceptable.

Holding door open for ugly person with face that makes you hate him--best!

One time I pushed a guy in a wheelchair who got off at my bus stop 3 kilometers through the suburbs on a summer's day. He got off like 5 stops too early and didn't actually know where his street was. A couple of months later I saw him on the bus again and smiled at him. He didn't recognise me.

Does that qualify?

One time, I helped some old guy push a utility trailer a few blocks.
