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?

Nice things
I am the bloke in the x-ray department who looks after the computer systems. Most of my co-workers are fairly computer savvy, but there are a few who aren't.

Nothing wrong with that at all.

I try my best not to make them feel like dullards because they didn't spend thier youth programming games into a ZX81 (like me).

I also am a dab hand sticking needles into veins (comes from doing 20+ a day when I worked as a CT Radiographer in Bridgend).

There is one Nurse who has some difficulty with both computers and needles. The day before yesterday she asked me to cannulate a lady with fat arms and deep, toughened, scarred veins (because of repeated infections).
I got in second attempt, which is 1 more that I usually take.

Yesterday she gave me a little gift of a home made candle for "being helpful and not making her feel like she was imposing when I help her out" I was quite choked really.

Nice to be appreciated eh?
