On Dec. 26th, on our return flight to California, I helped an older man in the aisle across from me put his (heavy) bag in the overhead compartment and take it down after we landed. As we were boarding, I saw that he was struggling with it (he seemed to have arthritis of some kind in his shoulders) so I gave him a hand. Pay it forward, you know?

I've have been building a gaming PC for my brother in law for the last 4 months, buying parts here and there when I had the cash. I gave it to him yesterday, he said it was the best present anyone had ever given him. I was really pleased with the finished product, managed to get it to stream movies through his xbox as well :)

Nice going, P. Very thoughtful of you. :)

Woo hoo! That is awesome. You should patent it and mass produce it.

* blows a little dust off this topic... *

Today, as I was coming home from the gym (sweaty, tired, achy), I had become a participant in a bit of local neighborhood drama.

A young woman, probably 22 years old at most, had apparently locked her baby niece in the back seat of her car (by accidentally giving her the keys to play with! :doh: ).
I had just pulled into my garage (hadn't even closed the door yet) when she ran up my driveway in a panic (she was parked over by the house next door). She told me she'd locked a baby in the back of her car and didn't know what to do (again; she was panicked).

Now, the interior of her car was black and it was starting to get hot. Luckily, this had just happened, so the infant wasn't in there too long.
She began to seriously freak out when I told her to keep calm, and just call 9-1-1. At first she asked if she should call AAA (her insurance company) instead, but since it was getting hot & the baby girl was crying, I told her to call 9-1-1 (police) instead. She basically just needed someone to stand with her and tell her to keep her focused on doing the right thing.

Well, luckily the police got there in only a few minutes, but then the cop (a fairly young man himself) took out his baton and was going to break the window NEAREST to the baby ( :blink: !!!).
I stopped him (a bit surprised that he didn't figure this out himself) and told him that maybe he should break the window furthest from the baby (in this case, the front passenger side window). Less chance of the little girl getting hit by glass. Well he listened to me (thank goodness!), and the baby was taken out unharmed. The woman took the baby out and held her. She thanked me profusely for helping her, and I told her it was no problem. I assured her that we all make mistakes and that no harm was done to the little girl, and that's all that mattered.

She joked that her brother was going to kill her about the car; I told her that she had plenty of time to think of a good lie. ;)
