This is a wonderful thread, so affirming.
The technician when I went for my 13 week ultrasound made a point of telling us how well we interacted with our kids, and what a lovely family we are (having some major issues with DS4 currently, so it was lovely to hear).
In the city around Christmas time we came across a young boy who was lost, absolutely distraught. I got my kids to talk to him, because he was obviously freaking out about adults, and my DH went and found a cop. The mum turned up after about five minutes. We were walking away, and the two roughest girls imaginable (piercings, tatts, makeup sooooo thick) walked up to us and said how nice we were for taking the time to wait with him when everyone else was too busy or too worried about getting in trouble. Just goes to show you really can't tell!
We've had teens in Macca's and places like that give the kids their happy meal toys. And when my son dropped his ice cream recently the girl (maybe 16yo) behind the counter noticed. I was lined up to buy another one, and she came out with a fresh one, gratis, and said she'd be right over to clean up the mess.

OMG Rachell what an amazing story I have tears ********* down my face I am glad that you are still in contact with her.
The one time that comes to mind for me is I had gone for a walk down to the shops with DS in pram half way home it started raining & was getting heavier lucky I had the rain cover for DS but I was drenched I had stopped under some trees to catch my breath and a young p plater stopped his car & offered me his umbrella, I declined at first saying I was nearly home but he wouldnt take no for an answer & said I needed it more then him
