This morning after work, Fiance wanted a peanut butter and jam sandwich but we didn’t have bread at home. So we went to a 24 hour Shoppers Drug Mart (this is 6:30 in the morning!) and as I walking in, I saw an old lady with a cane getting out of a taxi and going into the store, the taxi sat there with it’s four way flashers on. So the lady is hurrying, getting her stuff (as fast as an old lady could go) so I got the bread, got some orange juice and yogurt and head for the cash. Paid for my stuff, go outside, talk with the driver, (yes, he is waiting for her to come back to take her back home.) so I pull out a $20 bill, and said “Please use this for her fare today” He looked at me shocked. So I told him “Hey, we’re all going to that old too and it’s nice to get a little help” So I walk back to the car smiling from ear to ear and we drive home, eat our peanut butter and jam sandwiches, and you know what?
I am HAPPY. She did not see me do this, so it’s a very good deed because I didn’t get a face-to-face thank you from her. I feel good about it.
Have you done a good deed that nobody knows about?

These are my favorite kinds of things to do. The good deeds people don’t see you do, or know you did for them until your gone. I hate when people do a good thing and stand around waiting for a “thank you” *cough*SIL*cough*. 🙂 Good for you Roxanne!

I am hoping the taxi driver is honest and tells her about it, and I am also hoping she actually accepts it!

I love this! That is some good karma coming your way lady 🙂
My first week working at a hospital, I was heading to the bathroom after lunch and I saw a woman sitting alone, crying. While I was in the bathroom, I grabbed a few paper towels and dampened them and I picked up a box of tissues. When I came out, I went up to this woman, handed her the wet towel and the tissues, and gave her a big hug.
I have no idea who that woman was, or why she was crying, but I could only imagine that at the time, she must have felt invisible. I hope whatever she was going through was made just a little bit more bearable just because someone, ANYONE, cared.
