To be fair, I have never seen anyone on this board hate the average American, only the government and foreign policy.

But this is an amazing story. Great to see.

I love stories like this!

My son lost a wallet, while in Northern California on a ski trip. A guy that lived in Los Angeles, who was there skiiing too, found it. My son was visiting there from Phoenix, AZ.

The man who found the wallet called me, because my son had my address and phone number in his wallet. I was living in Louisiana at the time, but my son had the state abbreviation of LA. The guy though he could return it to me, in Los Angeles. I thought that was pretty awesome of him to call me!

I gave him a phone number for my son, and when he got a hold of him, he mailed the wallet, with all contents intact to my son, at his own expense. My son had a lot of cash in his wallet, because he was on vacation.

The world still has some good people on it!

about 5 years ago, i'm pulling out of the rest stop on top of raton pass. a woman is in front of me. her purse is on the roof of her car. she gains speed, i floor it in order to catch up. as i pull up next to her i'm watching the purse slowly slide backwards. she's in the passing lane, i'm on her right. head out the drivers side window, waving my arm and pointing at her purse.
she looks in my direction, her eyes pop open, she gets this scared look on her face.
then i realize, i'm a long haired, bearded, relatively burly man.
she floors it down the interstate, purse slides off,bounces a few times and ends up in the ditch. i pull over, walk back and pick it up. wasn't a chance my old r.v. was gunna' catch her, so i stuck it in the mail to the address on the i.d from trinidad. wrote a nice note,
hey, remember the guy who scared the crap out of you on raton pass?
well here's your purse, you left it on the roof of your car.
two weeks later, i get a thank you note in the mail with 200 bucks in it.
there was 1200 in the purse, with a hospital bill for a bunch of cancer work for a 12 year old girl.
that was the clincher for sending back the purse, that and the woman was driving an old beat up toyota.
sometimes i've wonder what i might have done if she was driving a mercedes.

Sounds like you are using a Jewish Copyrighted technique there my friend, make your self out to appear to be the victim when no such allegations have been made.

Just last week I scared a woman by jumping out of my truck at the lights and running up to her car (it's cold here and I've let my hair and beard go a bit, so I look pretty feral).

She left her handbag on top of the tarp of her ute, so I grabbed it and gave it back to her.

She ended up ringing my work to say thanks, and yesterday she came in and left a bottle of black label Beam for me. Apparently, she had tens of thousands of dollars worth of stuff in it.

Also yesterday, I saw a man and a young boy bogged on the side of the road. I have a 4x4 and chains in the toolbox, so I pulled up and pulled him out. He insisted I take $10 to buy a beer or two on the way home.

Both of these people were amazed how nobody else seemed to care, and seemed very grateful that I did. Although I don't drink, I have made around $60 this week by simply helping people that needed it. It also makes you feel really good doing it.

We need more stories like this to encourage people.
