So I was just reading a blog and the 'suggested 50 acts of random kindness". All about helping other people and making life less about yourself etc.
After reading the title I thought "yep, inspiring, I shall read on!"
Then I read the acts to see which one I will do...
Break into a friends house and clean it for them.. wtf
Hand out food to the neighbours as they leave for work... I don't know where other people live, but I doubt anyone will take food off the lady running up and down the street and then actually eat it.
Hide money in a toy shop for a random child to spend.... I don't know why I have a problem with this one, I just do.
And so on...
So that got me thinking, how would you react if anyone did these types of acts for you? Any well meaning people who have really missed the mark when they have tried to help you out?
My only story is that MIL had her house painted by her inlaws while she was at work after mentioning she wanted it done but couldn't afford it. Well meaning yes.. but MIL was left with a horrible colour and a terrible DIY job done as fast as they could get it done so that it was a "surprise" when she got home . So then she really did have to find the money.. to fix it!
