Strangers & Help

When was the last time or most memorable time you were helped out or helped a total stranger?

Two days ago I when to the petrol station to get fuel and also check my tyres.

I saw they were low so started pumping them up whilst the guy that came after me had stopped to buy some drinks from the station and then couldn't get his car started again.

So I helped jump start his car for him.

    I know this will probably get me shouted at for being an idiot, but i was young and stupid when this happened.
    I had just gotten off the bus and looked in my bag and i couldnt find my phone. Oh No! I'd left it on the bus. Now i was crying and kinda shouting at my bag and this guy came over ot me to see if i was ok. i told him what happened and he drove me all the way to the bus depo to get it back:D and he told me a story on the way. Its kinda like the pass it on thing.
    When he went traveling he left his addressbook in a cab, and the cab driver went all round the area looking for him.
    So now i owe some random person a favour.

    I've done the helping old ladies up the stairs, off/on the buss and across the road thing. I also give to charity's.. like the people who collect in the street for cancer research and the NSPCC(?), and give the people selling The Big Issue a few quid, etc. Somone droped their shopping walking down the street which I think was the time when people were just looking and laughing so I helped them pick it up. Helped a few people out with stuff.

    Marching out of the train station some bloke in front had a tesco bag with his work bits in and it was about to fall in (an orange was hanging half out) so I gave him the heads up and warmed him.

    It's kind of embarrassing having your stuff fall everywhere so I thought I should tell him.

    Ever notice how when you do help someone they almost look at you as if you are mad?

    I gave change from my lunch to rainbows at school :confused: but that's about it. Once on the bus I was talking about WW2 planes (we're sad :p) and this old guy started talking to us about them :) and he knew so much! I was a bit embarresed cos I don't normally talk to strangers; let alone old men, but he really knew what he was talking about.

    ooo They week before I was onthe Underground and this woman had a huge suitcase with her and was struggling to lift it up the staircase so I lifted it from the bottom for her over about 3 sets of staircases.

    I think she was pleased for the help, was surprised no one else bothered to help her.

    Then when I got ot the top of the station I went to get a trainmap and then walk out and there she was againstruggling with the final few stairs to street level and again no one helped her so I gave her bag another lift.
