I'm in. I've noticed women who put $5.00 worth of gas in their car, and I dash over and run my card through and tell her to fill er up! God, it makes them so happy!
That's happened a couple of times and it makes my day. Especially if she has kids in the car.

Good evening ATS,
In less than 3 days the holiday season will officially be kicking off!
Even though Xmas decorations and all that seasonal fun stuff has been on the shelves of most stores since late September, I always considered December 1st to be the beginning of the Holiday season.
With the Holidays approaching, I wanted to issue you all a challenge.
For most, it comes naturally.
Others,... well they need to work at it.
My challenge is...
To do something good everyday till January.
I don't mean go stand on the street corner and hand out $20's to strangers (you could though)
But to just be nice to someone. Put a smile on that persons face.
In today's busy society, we often forget, the little things go a long way.
Your act of kindness could be the deciding factor in someone's day.
They could be having the worst day imaginable right from the get go - we've all had those,
but your kindness could make that a total 180.
Hold open the door for someone and give them a smile,
Offer to lend a hand. Anything, that you would appreciate if someone did it for you, do that for someone else.
My personal favourite is while in the drive through line at the coffee shop, to give the teller a couple $20's and tell them to pay for the next amount of orders that the cash can cover and to just tell them to pay it forward.
When you get a free morning coffee and donut, you know your going to have a great day.
It's the little things that can make the big differences in someone's day.
