Thumbs up Karma? Dunno.... - June 8, 2011, 03:45 PM

So last week on the way home from Summit, I pass a lady changing her tire on Rt 17 just before I66. I'm beat, hot, hungry. I think "she's got it". Then I think "what if it was my mom?". I look at my cell and it's a dead spot; no signal. Well, WTF, I turn around (trailer and all) and head back, make another U turn and pull up behind her mini van. Come to find out the spare is jammed up under the car and won't come out. She has no cell service there either and her kids are going ape shit. It takes me 20 minutes to unbolt the holder and mount for the spare and another 20 to swap the tires and air up the spare (flat as well). She thanks me over and over and tries to give me $20. I simply told her to make a donation of any amount to the Leukemia Lymphoma Foundation (because my kid had cancer a while back).
This past Thursday, my kid wrecks her bicycle on the way home from the pool and gets all mangled up in the spokes. An electrician working in a new house under construction sees it all. He runs over, cuts the spokes so she can get her foot out of them and then brings her bike home after putting her in her friends moms car (who showed up randomly). He unloads the bike and says "sorry, I had to cut 'em". I'm freaked out of course, and next thing I know he is driving away. All in a days work for him!
My wife got him a $50 gift card and I'm leaving my house now to try and find him. My faith in humanity has been restored.

It's the "pay it forward" thing....I fully believe in it!

Good on you, good on him, and good on your wife

Sorry about your kid, she sounds about as graceful on a bike as I was. She'll grow out of it

They should've just called out the SWAT team to help the old lady on her way to jail for littering a whole POS van on the side of the road.

But seriously... a big

Nice work, my man.

I'm gonna play devil's advocate (no relation to Brad) and throw this out there: Who governs Karma/Pay it forward? Who makes sure it works and runs the way it's supposed to? I'm not trying to start a raging debate, and this can be completely rhetorical for all I care. I'm just curious to know what people think about this subject because often people jump at the idea of believing in nameless, faceless justice but cringe at the notion that there sits a judge somewhere that just might have a case file or two on them.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

no one in particular has to govern it. if i do a random good deed i don't expect it to necessarily directly reciprocate. the way i see it though, is if i treat people right, they will be more inclined to do the same. and hopefully eventually it'll become a cultural thing. just like how different ways of acting/eating/talking/etc are different in different parts of the world. or how we have evolved as a society to have different morals and ideas of acceptable behavior then in the past. you don't even have to go that far back to see our culture/morals evolve. think about viewpoints towards racism/segregation (with the exception of fitz), and gay rights.

I guess I'm a believer now.
As far as the grace thing? One word: flip- flops. Well, that is 2 words but I can bet she'll never wear them on a bike again!

Thanks for the thumbs up, folks. I hope this inspires someone else to take 2 seconds out of their life to help someone else. I got all welled up writing the first post. I'm glad he was there, it's a block of homes under construction so no owners yet.
