This is a question And that's the thanks I got

On getting screwed over by people for whom you were doing a favour:

I spent several weeks helping my best friend - a complete layabout - with his A-Level computer science project so he wouldn't fail his course. In the end, he did so little work I actually ended up doing the whole thing for him in a half-term week I should really have spent revising for my own exams.

I got back to college to find that while I was hunched over a red-hot BBC Micro, he had spent the week screwing my girlfriend.

Then he didn't bother sitting the exam because "I'm going to fail anyway".

And that's the thanks I got. How have you been screwed over whilst doing someone a favour?

It was June 18th 2004, I stopped by the Budgens on the way
to the office, picked up a copy of the telegraph, some fruity polos and a bottle of wind screen washer fluid. As I came into Cheltenham I was proceeded by a black Vauxhall, the driver a blonde 20-something wasn't paying attention to what she was doing and hit the brakes too late to avoid hitting (and running over) a 50-something tramp. I didn't know any of this until after I had run over him as well. I (being the kind-hearted man I am) actually got out of the car to see how he was, he was alive! With minor injuries! Turned out the first car killed him - my car jump started his heart again, bringing him back to life!

I was prosecuted and spent 6 months in jail, the tramp claimed damages and now lives in a better house than I do.

Apologies for length
