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?

Years ago I worked making car seats for Honda
at one of their many subsidaries. The work paid top dollar, but was back breakingly hard and boring as fuck. We were taking in a tenner an hour easy (not at all bad at the time)

Every week, because I was contracted through an agency, I had (and a load of other folks) to fill out our time sheets, the foreman would sign them, and we'd get paid. Every single week we'd hand our timesheet in, all correctly filled in, and almost without fail the foreman would remind us not to forget the extra 6 hours each we did on Sunday. Course none of us ever worked Sunday, but he put down 6 hours every week for ages. Gave us an extra 80 odd quid each week in wages. All because he thought the work was so soul destroying we deserved a little extra.

Now I don't doubt he didn't get something out of it, but he was certainly putting his balls on the line for it.

Top bloke, and fair play to him.
