This is a question The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

In amongst all the tales of bitterness and poo, we occasionally get fluffy stories that bring a small tear to our internet-jaded eyes.

In celebration of this, what is the nicest thing someone's done for you? Whether you thoroughly deserved it or it came out of the blue, tell us of heartwarming, selfless acts by others.

Failing that, what nice things have you done for other people, whether they liked it or not?

Was skiing one day ~
I love skiing. It's the activity that I love more than any other. I feel like a different person on the slopes - Athletic, stylish.. Wonderful!

So when I crashed last year and severely messed up my shoulder I was really depressed about it. We were having fantastic weather at the time, and it was the only week I could have off that season. I'd only been able to ski for 2 days out of the 7 I had planned.

Two mates of mine drove 400 kilometres to the town I was staying in, picked me up and packed my gear (I'd fucked my AC joint, couldn't use my right arm at all and was in a shitton of pain), then drove me home. The entire time they were cracking jokes, helping me with everything, even the slightly embarassing chore of getting my pants on in the morning. They never hesitated to come out and help me get back for even a second. Completely unasked, they did all that for me.

Couple of really nice guys, I'd do anything for either of them.

(There's a couple stories about nice things people have done for me, but this one really stands out. Shame neither of them read b3ta, I've never been able to get out how much that meant to me to either of them).

Oh, no need to tell them,
a manly punch on the shoulder'll say it all.

same here
2001, 2nd day of skiing in.

Right leg ended up facing backwards
*nuf said*

ended up with a plaster cast, which was interesting as they dont do those in the UK much anymore.

Also was in and out of the resort in under 2 hours, having had multiple xrays, and having the cast put on (which was a full leg cast beacuse even though it was on my lower leg, was too close to the knee joint.

Rather nippy.

Got up for first time after i'd broken it (2 and a half hours!) and threw up in their umbrella bin.

Which happened to have holes all the way down it.


Then i got back to the UK a week later to have it changed to a normal UK cast.

3 hours in the hospital, although the wait was made much easier, because i had 4 personal nurses who hadn't actually seen a proper plaster cast removed. So theres me sitting in my boxers in the hospital, with 4 nurses around me, removing the cast.

Mine was 2k5. Things have changed so much in so little time - Feels like almost a lifetime ago. I'm typing this from a desk job, something I never thought I'd have.

Like it a hell of a lot more than cheffing though :)
