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

Wake up call
About two years ago I was diagnosed with depression.I became so selfish and self centered that I didn,t care for nobody but myself.
I lost my job and nearly my marriage and was on the verge of ending it all.
I was always a moody bastard ,friends(not that I had that many) ,family and workmates would often get the wrong side of me.I had to look at myself and what I was doing.
The final straw came when I lost my job ,and my marriage I thought was over.I texted the wife to say I had enough and drove off into the night and wasn,t coming back.
Sitting in my car on that cliff edge was the most sobering experience I have ever had and eventually thought that its got this far and must get better.
On the way home I was pulled over by the police who were looking for me after my wife got worried.She even put it out on Facebook to help find me.
Anyways I told my wife what I was going through and we vowed to get through it.Through facebook my work family and friends found out what was going on and I was called in by my employers to review my employment and was told of all the support from my colleagues and friends who wished they could help.
Though not random,the acts of kindness help me get my job back,my marriage ,care about my wellbieng from people I know and only know in passing has made me a better person I am today,and when I am not feeling too bad always strive to help others when I can.
Catch you all later gonna make the wife a Valentines breakfast.

Facebook will have collected that information about you and it'll form part of your permanent record.

your employers are nice people
I got fired for being depressed. I get the impression they might have found it funny what I tried next.

They don't actually sack you
but large companies have many ways of "encouraging" you to leave "of your own volition".

You can get fired for not sucking the corporate cock though. The ability to suck down is removed when depressed.

You can if you're an unskilled, wholly disposable desk jockey who resents the achievements of others.

Cant believe how many fuckwits and trolls are on this site.
As for grammar,couldn,t my post be read?
As for bigging up Facebook so what, just stating the facts.
Stop being so shallow in your petty ways and grow up.
I said it was selfish the way I was and I came out of it a
better person.
Some people are sensitive to the shit that's flung at them, so think long and hard before typing that shit.
No doubt some dickhead will try and goad me again,go fuck yourself.

Dude, I'm sure you should have noticed that coming to QOTW for tea and sympathy
is a precarious, perilous cliff edge of expectation.

Mostly you'll just fall off.

Sympathy is generally found on Mumsnet.
Although we do offer tea.

Fair call if you were responding my post (amongst others) - I apologise
Not enough to change it tho - I'm not feeling that random or kind.
Having buried a few mates who decided to do the mortal-coil shuffle (including amongst them my best friend since school & a former lover) I tend to take a fairly dim view of the whole topping yourself malarkey.

Whoooooo. Why don't you go jump off a cliff. I wish you'd done it that first time, then I wouldn't have wasted 5 minutes reading this drivel. Go on, have another crack, jump this time. Fuckwit.
