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?

The Tale of Kaol and the Crack-Heads
Warning: Not a funny story

When I was a younger Kaol, I wasn't a very nice person.
Drugs, far too much alcohol, violence, psychotic mental health issues and stealing.
In short, I was a terrible cunt.

As most people with heavy drug usage tend to do, I ended up hanging around with a lot of dealers and assorted nasty-types.
I ended up getting to know these people pretty well, and they'd do favours for me and I'd do favours for them.

I was at home one night and my phone started to ring.
The screen was displaying a number that I didn't recognise, but I answered it anyway.
Turned out that it was a dealer I knew, and he wanted me to go with him to make a sale, because "I'm a big guy".

We got to where we were meeting the "clients", I stayed in the car, with a baseball-bat, "just in case".
As I was watching through the window, I saw the three of them knock my "associate"* to the ground, and start to kick him.

I don't fully remember what happened, it was all a bit of a blur, and I was shaking and sick afterwards, but I know that I hit all three of them with the bat, and realised that one of them was going to try and stab my associate.
I later heard that I'd broken the ribs of two of them.

I'm not proud of any of this, in the least bit, but the "nice-ness" comes in that I got away from doing drugs pretty sharpish afterwards. So, I guess I owe a "thank you" to the dealer I stopped from getting stabbed, in a strange way.
If this whole situation hadn't have happened, I'd have likely ended up in a gutter somewhere, bleeding my organs out.
So thank you, scumbag-drug-dealer.

*I'm not going to say "friend" or "mate", he was a scumbag

P.S. I'm lovely now. Fact.

You couldn't let
things just carry on being nice could you?

There's always one that ruins it for everyone else.

Awh :(
Be nice to me!
There's a twisted moral in there somewhere...

I can corroborate the fact that he is lovely.

after reading these pages for a few years, and participating for a couple I have read a legion of stories, good and bad about people and their lives, ups, downs, scrapes and adventures.

It has slowly dawned on me why I feel a bit out of place sometimes.

I am the most fucking M.O.R. mundane poster in the world! nothing really happens to me compared to all the crazy mixed up shite thats happened to virtually every poster ever.


sigh, and wanders off

You're doing yourself a disservice, Mr. H.

It's not all about the answers, there're some real gems in replies.

To be fair, I did hit an old woman with a door at lunchtime.

By accident

I spend a few hours last night flicking lit cigarette ends from a balcony into Covent Garden...

I've come to the same conclusion which is why I don't have many good stories.

I have however been collecting stories from the singer in my band, who is a complete liability.

I'm just waiting for the appropriate qotw to share with you tales of indiana jones style antics, dumb waiters, and sexually abused by a dog

After careful consideration
I've decided that I absolutely NEED to hear the story about the dog.

I'm praying for a QOTW tomorrow that allows it :D

End of the story?
Did the dealer scumbag who's life you saved hook you up with some gratis treats for being a heavy when he really needed it? That would have been lovely.

Glad you cleaned up nice in the end though!

You know what bothers me?
Nothing personal, but it seems that the world loves rehabilitated, born-again, saw-the-light types such as yourself. Whereas people like me - never touched a drop of alcohol or any illegal substance, never hurt anyone, completely disease-free - are completely ignored. It's not a matter of principle, I honestly don't care who smokes what, and I'm far from a goody goody.

I can't think of one politician or actor who wasn't on some hardcore drug at some point.
