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?

young, dumb and - well- extremely lucky
When I was 16 my friends and I were getting ready to go out to a club one Friday night. We were gathered at Sarah's house as everyone knows young girls like to get ready in packs. Young girls like to do everything in packs. There were 5 of us, my best friends whom I had known for over half my life.

Sarah lived about 15 minutes further away from Sydney than me so, as we would be catching the train up that night, we would pass my station on the way to the city- sound pointless now but essential later.

The trains where I live are crap, the 11pm train we were getting up would be the last train for the night, but all the station staff go home around 9pm, so the stations are deserted.

Ok, I have been delaying a bit here coz I don't really want to admit to being this stupid but- Sarah's bf's flatmate was a pharmacist - or so he said, I was naive enough to believe him then. We had no cash and so were going out straight that night- a prospect that we didn't find so appealing.

The flatmate told us that if we took anti-depressants we would halucinate and dumbly we agreed to give it a try.

I didn't realise but he gave Sarah and the other girls only 1 pill. He gave me 5. Zoloft (sp?). I'm no longer sure what milligram but was later told it was a potentially fatal dose. He wanted to see what would happen. This man is not the person I want to thank for doing me a good deed.

So we get on the train and all is good.

Suddenly it is not. Not good. Not at all. I feel nauseas, my stomach hurts SO MUCH and my head is spinning.

I fall to the ground. I throw up. Alot. I crawl feebly away from the smell. I am very confused and very far from well. I lose control of my muscles, lying on the floor of the train like a rag-doll.

My friends help me up and tell me we are pulling into my train station. This penetrates weekly and I am relieved that someone is going to help me get home.

The train pulls in, the doors open. My slack body is heaved off the train to fall on the platform. still vomiting and completely unable to move even my head the last thing I hear from my friends is

"You understand, don't you? It's just too good a night to miss."

They are not the people I want to thank or doing me a good deed.

The person I wan to thank is Kurt. I hadn't seen him for over 5 years at this point but when he turned up 5 minutes later, having missed the train, he recognised me.

He got my story out of me, helped me hurl anything left out of me, washed my face and wrists in cool water, dragged me around for over an hour trying to get me to walk. He held me up and dialed the phone number (he paid for the call too) at a public phone and held me until my parents came to collect me. At my own wish he even lied ot my parents and told them I had food poisoning.

Dumbest thing I've ever done (and that REALLY is saying something) and he saved me. I don't know what would have happened to me if I'd spent the winter night lying on the station in ruined fishnets, a pvc miniskirt and a mesh top in a puddle of spew.

So this is the person I want to thank. I've told him many times since in real life, but now the internet knows.

Thanks Kurt.

well I had some pretty extreme self esteem problems, they were my closest friends for another 18 months, then they stopped talking to me.

Pathetic I know and I'd never let anyone treat me like that anymore.

Sarah and Lucie (my 2 BFF's) were also in on it.

As to what my friends said? They went to the club, where mr kitty was out of his face on acid and told him.

He spent 5 days going crazy before I could get out of bed to call him.

He spent that whole night knowing that he couldn't get home, couldn't call (and wake my parents and notify them that he was off his face and knew what had happened) and had ABSOLUTELY no way to know if I had even gotten home.

I've been thinking about posting this all week, only built up the courage today.

BTW, my friends (no longer) still swear that it was one of the best nights ever and it sucks that I had to miss it.

And I
was about to type the same thing too.

Shower of bastards, I hope that happens to them one day too, then they'll realise just how shittily they treated you.

You've got to wonder about the sanity and outlook of the twunt-buckets who act like that. Despicable.

What an...
Utter shower of bastards, useless fucknuggets.

They sound like they deserve to be stuck in that situation!

I am totally gobsmacked that a group of girls would leave you like that.
That out of the whole group there was not one girl who stayed with you.

The fact that they just left you there was evil and not just wrong.

*shakes head in disbelief*

The guy would give you five sertraline tablets like that, no wonder you felt so ill. I'm amazed that you weren't hospitalized.

As for your so-called friends, people like that deserve utter contempt.
(, Thu 9 Oct 2008, 9:19, closed)
pleasee tell me
who your so called friends were, so I can hunt them down, rape, skin and torture them to death.

With 'friends' like those, who needs arch-nemeses...?
(, Thu 9 Oct 2008, 10:18, closed)
That's terrible
Really, they're not friends if they've done that. Selfish bunch of fuckers.

I'm glad you've realized that too with this story, you could do much better than them.

There's nothing I can say about those scum that hasn't already been mentioned in the replies above...
But I'd just like to say well done you for plucking up the courage to post the story.

what a pack of bitches!
they all need raping with fiery traffic cones.
as for the sociopath who gave you those tablets "to see what would happen", i sincerely hope that either you had him arrested or that he took the rest of the pills himself and died horribly.
i know that's harsh, but there can be no excuse for treating another human being like that.
(, Thu 9 Oct 2008, 13:26, closed)
You were as lucky to have a friend like that...
...as you were unlucky to have nasty cunts like that, be that horrible to you.

Glad it all worked out alright for you, and I scho everyone elses venom towards your 'mates'.

*clicky* and *hugs*
