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?

Speaking of doing nice things for other people
How awkward is it when people ask you for money in the street? You can't give your spare change to EVERYONE, and statistically some of them are just going to spend it on beer, and you're probably not all that solvent yourself (well, except in comparison to the guy in front of you in the cardboard box), but then you feel guilty just walking past them.

Fortunately I came upon a handy solution in the form of another problem - my large assortment of plump elderly female relatives have a tendency to give me food at every available opportunity. When I fend them off with the very reasonable excuse that if I were to eat everything they gave me I'd be spherical, I'm like as not finding an apple has mysteriously appeared in my bag later that day.

Killing two birds with one stone is very satisfying, mathematically speaking.

What about the ones
who hang around cash machines. If I'm going to a cash machine, it means I haven't got any cash. If I'm going from a cash machine, it means I've got a bunch of tens and twenties and you sure as fuck ain't getting those.
