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?

I work in IT, and have, in the past, been a contractor. There have been good times, there have been lean times. Summer 2005 was Pretty Good. A couple of mates were due to go over to the USA to (of all things) DJ at a club in San Francisco, and a bunch of other people decided to come along for the trip. Cheap flights in November, and crashing on people's floors.

I have a mate called Chris. He's a lovely bloke, but has been through some arduous times; a messy end to a relationship amongst others. I won't detail but a nice, good, solid chap on hard times.

I, on the other hand, was doing pretty well. Chris & I got pissed up one night, and I told him I'd pay his way to the States; he's a good DJ, by the way. He assumed this was Drunk Talk, as you would.

Two weeks later I phoned him up and asked him what his passport number was, and long story short I bought his flight & insurances - and never told my wife, she'd have gone nuts. I earned it, and since I paid all the bills, everyone's properly fed/clothed/watered with nothing lacking and this is my spare so it's mine to play with, that's my opinion.

He had a gerat time, and paddled in he Pacific. We destroyed the club with a brutal D&B set, when they wanted it kept to 132bpm. (Lightweights.) It was a Victory, we all had a great time, and it is unmentioned between us since; there's no weight at all behind it.

This isn't a 'big me' post, but I'm proud that I brought some light into a mate's life that was a touch too grey.
