    Default Has a random person helped you?

    Just wanted to start a thread about things a random person has done that has helped you in a big way...

    Gone out of their way to help you

    Etc

    I know there have been similar ones but I just wanted to share this.


    This afternoon I took my crazy labrador and my 2 sons for a walk down in this creek walking trail area... we usually go there for walks etc


    My dog loves to splash in the water. ..

    Its been raining alot the past few days so there is lots of water in the creek..

    It drops down so theres a vertical 1.5/2 metre drop to the warter in some parts..

    Anyway my dog was walking of the lead and decided to jump in for a swim and couldn't get back up the bank as its vertical 1.5m I was calling her trying to get her up but she couldn't make it.... (she was on a little bank so not stuck in the water) I couldn't jump down because of my 4 and 3 yo children were with me... a lady walking past with her dogs came over.... saw what was happening... jumped down and lifted my dog up the cliff and in the process got very wet and muddy... but wasn't at all phased

    But she was the sweetest lady ive ever met.. so so thankful.

    That's awesome! Don't you just wish that by some miracle she's a hubber and will see us all loving on her!?

    Aww that's awesome!

    I once had a lovely lady help me at Ikea. I was in line at the checkout in front of her with dd who was being particularly clingy that day and she could see I was struggling to try and load my items onto the checkout so she offered to do it for me. Was such a huge help.

    It's nice to see just how helpful people are willing to be when you have a baby. Mine are very small things but made my day.

    When my daughter was 6 weeks old and I was a pram newbie, I had 2 different men jump up on one day to open the door for me at my drs surgery.

    On Friday I was in Aldi and there was an elderly man, probably in his 80s with about half the amount of groceries I had. He was in front of me in the line and kept asking if I was ok with the baby (had her in a carrier) and whether I wanted to go in front of him so I could get out faster. She wasn't crying or anything, he was just being so kind! I politely declined, but such a nice gesture.

    I was the random stranger not all that long ago. Elderly couple at the shops waiting for a taxi when I arrived, looked like they had been waiting. Still waiting when I finished 40 mins later.

    I didn't have my son with me so ended up giving them and their groceries a lift home.

    I was in a kinda deserted road one day on the outskirts of Perth. I turned to go around on the road and got bogged. It was about 15 years ago and I didn't have a mobile so I sat there wondering what I was going to do. A man came by and asked what was wrong. He said he couldn't help himself and indicated that he used a wheelchair and pointed to the chair on the roof. He could drive though. He said he would be back with some friends that were cleaning a school up the road. Sure enough he came back with some friends and they pulled me out. I have never forgotten him.

    Yep my credit card didn't work when I was backpacking and was trying to get to San Fran airport. I couldn't get any cash out and the card was the only way I could buy a train ticket. I was just wondering what the hell I would do when a random guy came up to me, gave me $20 and told me to pay it forward! I definitely have, and its all down to that one guy!

    Yesterday my mum rang me to get it off her chest that someone collapsed at woolies, he cracked his head open and she held it together until ambulance arrived. She saved his life
