A little while ago i was taking my daughter to hospital in the city, we got on the bus and the bus driver asked where we were going. When i said the
hearing clinic for my daughter, he let us on for nothing. What a gent. He just said, "do someone else a favour sometime".
I smiled because i am a huge fan of the Pay It Forward mentality, do someone a favour and expect nothing back, or at least they pass on the good will
So today me and my dad was on a train and this young girl about 18 was looking for the guard to buy a ticket, but her card was declined. She was
visibly upset as she had the money, but the guard said sometimes the card chips play up with the machine, She had no other money and the options given
to her was to get off the train or get a £25 fine at the end. So i asked the guard if i could pay her fare. Wasn't a lot, about £6, but she didn't
have it and it was going to cost her greatly and seriously mess her day up.
The girl was so appreciative, she said that there were so few people these days that care enough to even want to help. As i said to the girl, if you
can't help out someone without expecting anything in return, it's a sad world. Plus, i have two young daughters and i like to think that if they were
stuck like that, someone would want to help them.
She looked a bit bemused that i didn't want anything for it, i just said maybe she could do someone else a favour sometime.
So yeah....try it sometime if you haven't already, feels good too.
