» The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

About two years ago..
My dad passed away from a major heart attack. It was instant and no way any doctors would have been able to save him. He was only 52 but a heavey smoker. Anyway I was at work when my mum came to tell me. My boss came and gave me a hug and I went home. There was lots of traveling around that day to see family and friends and picking up my (then) boyfriend from Paddington who had jumped on the first train from Reading to come and be with me.
That evening we were all sitting on the sofa when the Doorbell rang. Thinking it was another relative or frint come to offer their condolances, I went to answer it. It was interflora saying they had some flowers for me. When I opened the card it turned out it was from the whole office and they had all signed it with best wishes. There was even a long message from my boss who had gone through the same thing when he was my age. I had no idea everyone in the office cared that much and it was the nicest thing anyones done for me.

(First QOTW, please be nice!)

Aged about 10
My sister and I had had a huge argument. Neither of us can remember what it was about but I had pissed her off enough for her to think sticking a gigantic needle in my mattress of my bunk bed was good enough retaliation (think those huge carpet needles carpet fitters tend to use) So she stuck it in my bed and there it sat....for about 3-6 months. she cant remember how long it was there but enough time passed for her to completely forget it was there.
That was until we were playing a game with our friends where you had to climb up on the top bunk, jump down on to a mattress, climb up the ladder and repeat (the game was called "keep the kettle burning" for reasons I cant even imagine) We had all been playing for a while, climbing across my mattress right at the spot that the needle sat...waiting.
It got to my sisters turn and we all heard an almighty scream. She had knelt right on the needle and there it was, sticking out of her knee cap with only a few milimeters sticking out the top. I screamed and ran for my parents and was taken to a neighbours house as I was too in shock to hear my sister scream in a way that chilled me to the very bone. My dad managed to get it out and aparently (according to doctors) she avoided knackering her knee cap by less than a centimeter. Soon after the incident the truth came out that she had planted the needle there and intented for it to stab me squarely in the buttocks.
Length? About 2 inches in, 4 mm out. But hey, at least it wasnt my arse!
