    Why 'so-called'? I don't follow your meaning.
    My post wasn't about being judged by others.

    Never regret a good deed, no matter how it backfires. I think it just happens all too often, and it's funny.
    On the other hand, if I had not done that good deed, maybe I'd have tripped and broke my arm instead of just a bit of a pull.

    I tend to view, the instant the decision to execute/intervene is taken, as Appropriate or Correct/ive action not a "good". I am no do-gooder.

  4. Sent an old friend $50 just yesterday and he followed that up later in the night by asking for another $50. Pretty damn sure I'm never seeing the first $50 again, but wasn't about to make it $100.

    That's the reason I don't give loans. If its a friend, you will know if he is in trouble, he will not ask. If I help with money, I never tie conditions to it, as a real friend would give it back as soon as possible -or disqualifying from the friend status.
    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

    Yeah, I gave the first $50 knowing that I won't get it back even though he said he'd pay it back on Friday and I did it without hesitating. If he tries to send it back, I'll tell him to just keep it and do something good for somebody else down the road, but based on the "I just need 50 more" only hours after I sent the first, I'm fairly certain I just have to cut them off. I should also qualify the situation that this isn't a good friend, but more of an old classmate that I haven't spoken to in years (we graduated high school in 94). I'm always willing to help people out, but have had to cut plenty of people off that want to abuse the system.

    Seems like we have to establish first what "friend" means . I'm somewhat like you. If I give something out of pity, I'm mentally convinced to never see it back, like a donation.

  9. I feel as though a good deed has been done when I show up at work..
    Not because of the fact that I am very arguably helping people (I work in the medical field).
    Just the simple fact that I went in..

    And yes, I get punished repeatedly while I am there..

I won't number the times this week where I helped someone out, and it just came right back at me, but the most recent little story just might ring a bell with the lot of you.

    Today, I'm going to get some ant-killer because I noticed this caravan of ants all the way from the curb to my door, and a nice bunch inside feasting on something I couldn't see... freaked me out. I got to the local store to get the kills-all-from-space-even spray, and I see this young kid pushing a car down the road... I'm like.. just keep walking, just keep walking...

    Then he gets in the car and his girlfriend gets in back of the car. Granted she's far more muscular than him... I chuckle to myself, and then it happens.. I decide. I stop, turn around, and go and help. I start pushing alongside her, and we make it to the gas station about 1/4 mile away, and push it up the drive and into a stall... I'm just discovering how winded I am, but I muster a "High five!", then shake the gents hand in the car and leave. Oh, everything is great. I feel good, they are safe at a gas station, and I go home to incinerate some ants after buying the nuclear option of end all ant-hood.

    About an hour later, I'm feeling some pain. Oh yeah. My left achilles is swole, and I'm like... yeah. Time for the ice.
    Thanks for reading this rant and I hope you all learned your lesson!

    Don't run out of the house to get bug-nuke without proper shoes because you may need to help push a car to a gas station, and crocks without socks just won't cut it...


    Who am I kidding? I'd do it again. It was fun.
    Now share. What stupid good deed did you do that turned on you.

    For some reason i thought this was gonna end with you banging the girl and the guy shooting you.....

    To paraphrase a 70s PSA...."A human life is a terrible thing to waste." If you have ever been down at the deepest extremity possible then a hand-up is needed. Sometimes external as in another person being that lever, or internal as a reservoir of resilience hitherto untapped.

    Handup is not handout.

    Way better than: pushing the car, getting banged by the dude and then shot by the girl.

    I always have an extra pair of shoes in my car for this reason. But I drive clunkers(intentionally), so I do not want to be without good shoes if needed.
