Oh my god where is this person when I run anything 10k or over? Just need a beer person half a mile past pizza point.
When I ran my first 42k a guy in front of me (around 35k) snagged a cigarette from an onlooker. I’ll never forget that dude.
I have a race Saturday, so.....
That is exactly what sportsmanship looks like! Love MX!
I spent two weeks in Ireland, so I'm by no means an expert, but they are the salt of the earth, give the shirt of their back type of people. And this doesn't surprise me. They sure know how to take care of people!
Well I'm glad that's the lasting impression you have of us here in Ireland.
I'm afraid that wasn't me. I would have helped though, all the Dans here are helpful like that :-)
This. Is the way it should be.
I love this raw wish to help others that kids have.
One of my proudest daughter moments was recently when she (4) was watching some other brother and sister fight over the last remaining on-table tablet in McDonald's.
You could see her independently assess the situation and then without saying anything she turned the tablet around so the other could use it, defusing the situation. Such empathy, problem solving and understanding at a young age.
Also: Thank you stranger! I told my daughter we got internet treasure and now she's making pirate noises. Argh.
Sad to see kids' dependencies on screens these days. When I was a child we had to play outside during long flights.
Perfectly good twistables right there. Start drawing little man
You must be a good parent! Your daughter rocks, good for you!
this is really wholesome. congrats, stuff like this really brightens the day :)
Yes. I was very excited and pleased when I received the DVDs through mail. Felt like sharing on reddit and couldn't think of any other sub than this where people would feel the same.
Ok but like what was wrong with the brake lights? You can’t leave me hanging like that
I've met some really awesome amazing police officers in my life that knew I was having a bad day and or gave me wonderful nice advice.
Everyone don't forget to appreciate the officers in your life and in your community. They have to do scary stuff and enforce but they are here to help. <3
Respect, cop or stranger, I love people who help.
“Also, if the house is on fire don’t put it out. We have fire insurance. We don’t have flood insurance.”
So amazing that in a time of despair they were thinking of someone else.
The Kays are classy af.
"We have insurance and the deductible is cheaper than redoing the roofing and fresh paint.
Wholesome as fuck 👌
A lot of restaurants take two weeks off a year. Usually for deep cleaning or other maintenence. Almost every restaurant in my tourist town does this.
edit: Obviously in a highly populated year round place this wouldnt be the case
I've seen this posted before, and I do think it's very sweet, but why don't they just get another Chef for two weeks? It's nice that the restaurant can afford to close for that time, but what about the other workers? Is everyone cool with losing income for 2 weeks?
I know the owners; I need to check with them but I’m pretty sure that they take steps to help make sure that their staff are not negatively impacted by the closure.
Not as life changing, but my fist week as a cocktail waitress a well mannered man gave me a $4 tip for a round, except while I walked away with the bills and went to add them to my pouch, I realized that one of them in the middle was a $20. I ran back to the guy and all fresh faced and excited, told him he accidentally handed me a $20. He said he didn't think so, and thumbed through the bills in his wallet.
After a couple seconds, he screwed up his face a bit and said "huh, looks like I did." He pulled another $20 out and handed it to me, and said he hoped I'd always keep my integrity. In 20+ years since, I've never stolen from anyone, customer, coworker, or employer.
That happened to me once and they made me pay it back.
A guy I worked with at my last job had the opposite happen. He took a job that paid less to get out of the headaches he had to deal with in his previous position. He told them after a few months that he was still getting paid his previous amount and the admin blew him off. A year or so goes by and they ask him into the office. They tell him that they had been overpaying him for the last year and they was going to fix his pay. Then they proceeded to tell him he was going to pay them back the 10+thousand dollars they overpayed him. He gave them a big F off and left then and there.
Fist week at a cocktail bar sounds like it could get messy. I'm glad that well-mannered dude was there.
Def thought it was going to say he came into office with a gun. But let her live.
That’s a different sub
Didn't look at the sub and thought it was going to end with unsolicited dick pics. Kind of disappointed... who the fuck am I anymore?
People can truly be horrible. Thank you for being one of the good ones.
