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?

Nearly 12 years ago my Wife went into premature labour. She was carrying twins, but only one survived.

I have never experienced anything like the shock, pain and grief of losing a child, at the same time having a desparatly ill 28 week prem baby and a wife that nearly shuffled of the coil at the same time.

After being restrained from "going for a walk by the sea" and vomiting with grief I was in a sorry state. I had a headache. I asked for some Paracetamol to stop the pain "we can give drugs to non-patients" said young, stupid, vacant staff nurse. Correct, I knew, but heartless. I was in no position to argue though.

The consultant came to me half hour later, to see how I was. Obviously not great. I really wanted to die, but all I could say was "I have a headache, but no one can give me a tablet" The consultant looked over to self important nurse and said with about as much edge as I have ever heared in the health service (24 years man and boy!) Get him a tablet.

Just like to say thanks for that little bit of concern to a grieving Father. Not all nurses are angels, not all consultants are twunts.

isnt it strange
that same thing in any ordianry situation wouldnt seem so amazing.

But when your pissing into the wind, the slightest bit of help feels like someones taking 100 tons off your shoulders...

well done to the doctor!

You might want to correct the typo.
"we can give drugs to non-patients"

I presume that it is 'can't'.
