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

The gift is in the giving
Years ago, in a cookery lesson in school, I made an apple pie. In a fit of righteous philanthropy I decided I was going to give the pie to my elderly neighbour (she was frail, half blind and had Parkinson's disease and lived alone - she was obviously in need of an entire apple pie).

She was delighted, or at least she pretended she was, but the next day she presented me with a box of chocolates to thank me. I was incredibly annoyed by this as my selfless gesture wasn't supposed to be rewarded and she was totally destroying my chance to bask in unadulterated altruism. I decided the only way to improve the situation was to bake another pie, and then when she'd paid me back for that I'd bake another, and another, and another, in some kind of fucked up cake arms race.

Fortunately she died a short time later. I don't think it was pie related.

Pie or it didn't happen.

* Also ninja edit, isn't apple pie a term meaning minge?

If this doesn't win then there is something rotten in the state of denmark.

I didn't know apple pies cured parkinsons. I'll bake one for Marty McFly right now!

I understand
death is also very effective at stopping the involutary movements associated with Parkinsons.
