Only one dollar?

Come onnnn don't be cheap. Can't even buy a coffee without a fiver


Serious: I do that now and then with a five but I target night crew grocery stockers, usually in the cereal aisles since most customers don't look back there.

Just a nod to my humble beginnings.


I waited tables and bussed as a second/third job a long time ago.

Just give the bussboy/girl 20 bucks sometimes.

The response always lights up my heart.



Edited to add... I was bussing a table once with the customer still there, an older guy that was writing in a notebook. I was polite, cleaned around him and asked him if there was anything else he needed (we needed the table.)

He stopped, put his pen down and reached in his inner jacket pocket and gave me a $100 bill.

He told me that he thought I needed it more than he did, picked up his book and left.

I had just fought for three years to get off of welfare, fought the courts for my kids and was really strapped for cash.

It's not a large amount of money to me now, but at the time it was the biggest thing that had happened to me in a long while.

I cried on the way home.

I still remember his face.

So random acts of kindness are a lot bigger than people think.

I'm crying typing this.

So I always make the effort to give back, just because you will never know when you are being used to make a difference in someone's life.

Probably shouldn't have shared that, but it just came out.

You should do something really good for him but don't tell him it's a reward for the dollar thing. Or let him see you do something selfless like this for someone else.

Make him feel like your just doing it because you love him and it feels good to do good.

That way you reinforce his own goodwill nature but it isn't about receiving rewards.

Do good for goodness sake.

He obviously already does that type of thing and it would be cool to see people he loves doing it as well i'm sure.

You don't tip hookers sweety... they already got that.

You tip strippers.

Pro tip!

What kind of charity though?

It's one thing to give to a church or large organization and get noticed for it , it's quit another thing entirely to do good that no one notices.

Dbs son seems to be the second type.

As are lots of young liberals that I know.

If you give enough to charity, the IRS certainly notices when you claim it.

Nobody else needs to.

I'm what a Christian would call a heathen... lol

But I give 10% of my gross to charities... I was down once and remember the ones that helped me and the causes that I think are just.

It isn't about recognition... it's all about giving something back.

You are raising a child with a mind of his own, and i think that's absolutely brilliant.

That's great few kids have that mentality but I wouldn't mention that you know. Sounds strange yes but maybe he is doing this not for the praise or for others to know just something he is doing as a little thing he is giving back to the world and just secret know how great a kid you're raising. As a childless guy (a dozen nieces and nephews though) I know kids can grow up to be all types of people seems like you've got one of the good ones so keep your knowledge a secret hell maybe take it up yourself and do the same, a secret thing in common with your boy.

I suspect Db's son is a chip off the old block but he would never admit to it.

He's obviosly seen his parent's good works and kind hearts.

Man.

Not too often my kid can catch me unawares.



Well they say it can skip a generation....LOL seriously sounds like a good kid, I'm amazed at my daughters sometimes, dont think overall we totally screwed up with our kids as much as the preceding generation thinks we did.

What a nice thing to catch your kid doing! Some teens are out shooting people, stealing, bullying online even. Meanwhile, your kid's seeking to make the world a better place. Like actively doing something and not just wishing things were better. And just thinking of others, instead of being selfish, is so fresh and new. I hope it becomes the flavor of the month!

The first thing I thought of when I read you caught your kid doing something....was he got caught playing with himself.


I cannot tell a lie. The way the title was written made me think of that, was that your intent?

I was walking out of a restaurant with two very wealthy Italian brothers one time (and their father). Another gentleman in front of us was reaching into his pocket for his car keys, and as he pulled them out he dropped some change. He bent over and picked up the silver, but left the pennies on the ground.

The older brother kicked the pennies aside, and the younger brother punched him in the chest and threw him violently to the ground and then started kicking him. "NEVER, throw money away...no matter how little!!!", he said! His father jumped in on the ordeal and they both railed at him in Italian. They told him to take a cab home because he wouldn't be riding with them...these guys were really serious too!

The irony of this story is thick.

The restaurant was the Red Fox in Birmingham, Michigan.

Anyone know what the significance of this restaurant is???? (BTW...my sister worked there at the time too!)

The Red Fox Restaurant was where AFL/CIO union boss (and likely mob boss) Jimmy Hoffa was kidnapped. My sister worked there as a waitress
