This is a question Random Acts of Kindness

Crackhouseceilidhband asks: Has anyone ever been nice to you, out of the blue, for no reason? Have you ever helped an old lady across the road, even if she didn't want to? Make me believe that the world is a better place than the media and experience suggest

This morning I visited a small cornershop on the way to taking my 3 year old son to nursery
My son wanted me to buy a bunch of bananas to share with his nursery friends. The shopkeeper thought that his sharing instinct was great and gave us 70p off our bananas and zeroed his profit.

It's not a big thing but it touched me a little. It's not all about money, life is about people, little moments in time, small kindnesses.

Also hooray for small shops where they have the autonomy to do stuff like this.

You mean to say
these fucking veg merchants are making 70p on every bunch of bananas?

I'd have petrol bombed the greedy bastard.

Thursday last week I went into the wee shop across the road...
For a pint of milk. And a tiny little girl of around 3 or so was behind the counter sitting. She told me I needed to put it back and get a big carton of milk as I'm big and the one I had was small.

The right thing to do would have been to go and get a big one instead and thank her for pointing it out... sadly I didn't the shopkeeper served me before I had time to think. I just paid and left with a smile on my face.. only to realise later I'd probably made her feel daft by not doing it.
