@  mlappin : (29 July 2014 - 07:08 AM) Nicest thing the wife and I done for somebody, stopped at Golden Corral for lunch after her doctors appointment, picked up the tab for a WWII vet and his wife eating across the aisle.
@  Shetland She... : (29 July 2014 - 06:09 AM) 58° and mostly sunny here in srn NH. Should get to mid 70s later.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 11:23 PM) Stack- that is DIR!
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 11:21 PM) Pay it forward. Good deal.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 11:20 PM) attaboy stack.
@  stack em up : (28 July 2014 - 10:50 PM) day, for no reason other than she had a van of screaming kids
@  stack em up : (28 July 2014 - 10:50 PM) thru her ice cream the other
@  stack em up : (28 July 2014 - 10:49 PM) I try to pay it forward as payment since. Bought the lady in front of me in the Dairy Queen drive
@  stack em up : (28 July 2014 - 10:43 PM) Got pulled out by an acquaintance on Christmas Day 2009, on my way to see my girlfriend (wife now). Offered the guy $100 for his trouble, said merry Christmas and took off before I could count out the bills.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 10:16 PM) I would have felt bad doing it for $5. Not near enough pay. Much better doing it for free as a good samaritin.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 10:15 PM) He offered me $5. I said no thanks pass on the favor. As I left I was laughing.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 10:14 PM) well said redneck. I pulled a couple of high school kids out of the ditch a few winters ago. Not first time nor last time I have done that.
@  Bgriffin856 : (28 July 2014 - 10:04 PM) Pretty much how it works up here on our hill. Neighbor helps neighbor. You never know when you may need a hand
@  urednecku : (28 July 2014 - 09:57 PM) While at first it sounds cheep, all rewards are not cash. The college kid can sleep at night knowing she did the right thing. Sooner or later it'll come back to her. I've pulled several people out of the ditch, helped somebody change a tire, etc. & never accepted any monetary reward. ( A bag of home-made cookies don't count!) I have been paid back several times when I slid in a ditch or broke down & needed help, etc.
@  mlappin : (28 July 2014 - 09:56 PM) Oh I don't know, a friend of ours did a tour in Afghanistan, got blown up, lost both his buddies that were also in the humvee, go the purple heart and a few other medals then after a year went back for another tour as he couldn't find a job in Obama's economy
@  Bonfire : (28 July 2014 - 09:13 PM) I would have bought him a meal and then told him to pick his discipline and responsibility up off of the floor and get a job.
@  Grateful11 : (28 July 2014 - 08:59 PM) I've never told anyone this but last winter we were headed somewhere for a Christmas party. We drove by a guy standing by a guardrail shivering holding a sign, it was about 25˚ out, my wife and I looked at each other and knew we had to do something. So went and bought him 2 sausage biscuits, a drink and gave him $20. The guy honestly looked like he really down on his luck, he truly looked shocked.
@  Grateful11 : (28 July 2014 - 08:53 PM) I wouldn't expect anything if I did something like that but if they offered so be it if not I wouldn't sweat it.
@  Vol : (28 July 2014 - 08:23 PM) Doing the right thing applies to both ends of this type of situation.
@  deadmoose : (28 July 2014 - 07:48 PM) He doesn't have to offer anything. Just like a tip is not required. I still think low to no tippers given good service are cheapskates.
