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?

seen through the eyes of another
i was a bit of a relationship shambles. 3 years with someone who treated me like an inconvenient hotel-cum-butler (no pun intended- cum was last in her priorities list) i pretty much considered myself unworthy. i was dating a very pretty and very nice girl who was also totally unsuitable on the premise i thought i couldn't do better.

so one night in a pub i met this lovely lass from northern ireland. she was flirting and fluttering her big blue eyes at me... i told her i was with someone... albeit unhappily (true- it wasn't working)
anywho. we ended up together (once i'd ended it with the other girl.. took me all of 48hrs :D AND turned out she had feelins for her ex so no harm done)
we'd been seeing each other for a good few weeks, and we both needed a holiday, so we went to cornwall to see some friends of mine (PhillieJoe step up and take a bow)
for the first time, it became apparent that she wasn't just into my looks, or with me because i'm a big lug and it makes them safe, she was telling me what she saw in me that made her want to be with me
she ended up turning to me in a gloriousoly cheesy kitsch little smalltown nightclub, and just casually tossing in 'i love you'

it's the single nicest thing anyone ever said to me. i heard it before, but i never valued it because i guess soem part of me knew they didn't really understand it, or they were saying it to get a reaction... this girl is the most open, honest person i've met. she calls a spade a spade, and she'd told me how she felt.. for the first time in fuckin YEARS if i'm totally honest, i felt like someone actually saw something worthwhile in me.

now we're looking at houses. and cats :D

I really enjoyed my time as a hotel cum-butler.
