    What's your latest Good Deed?

    Well, tonight, The Blonde and I were having a light dinner at the East Sac Taqueria, and while I was jabbering away about something stupid that happened at work today, she said "Hey, do you want to be a Boy Scout?" and I, of course, being in total Dumbazz Male Mode said "What?"

    The Blonde: "Don't you see her?" She pointed at the corner of 38th and J, in front of the Peet's Coffee Shop (our local competitor to Starbucks), and there's a woman with a cane, who even at a distance has to be pushing 90, hump shouldered and such, who is trying to cross the street.

    Now, its rush hour, and people can't be bothered to stop for another human being, right, and there's no light at this corner... its a little strip mall area at the beginning of the "Fabulous 40s" (translated - $1,000,000 houses on up - this is the NICE part of East Sacramento), so I jump up and dash across the street *just* as she's decided to start going across, even though there's still too much traffic.

    Me: "Ma'am... let me help you here." I hold up and wave my arms and stop the cars.

    Old Lady: "Why thank you. That's very kind. I have to take some medicine, and I like to get a soda at the store across the street."

    She offered to TIP me. I, of course, did not take the tip. I said "Your thanks is enough for me. Have a good evening!"

    So, what altruisms have you done lately? These build good karma, you know.

    A couple of weeks ago a sales rep left her laptop case complete with Mac Air in the parking lot. I hunted her down and returned it.

    I'd say that's a good start only if you also did not permanently maim someone.

    Permanently? No.

    A few good years of therapy and they'll be fine.

    Went to Disneyland a few weeks back. After a purchase, the young vendor gave me $7 too much change back. I thought she did while she counted out the change, but wasn't sure and didn't want either one of us to feel awkward, so I left without bringing it to her attention. I walked a ways considering my options. I decided no way was I going to knowingly rip off a Disneyland employee, so I recounted the money to confirm the over-payment, then walked back and returned it. She was surprised I would even do that. I told her that Disney karma isn't anything to fool with.

    I saw a really large cockroach crawl out of a guy's gym bag yesterday in the changing room. I caught it and put it back in and zipped the pocket. I figured it had to be his pet or something.

    I found a ladies purse once and returned it to her. I kept the 700 bucks said the kids at park probably stole it. I see it as a win-win.


    True story, except the part about me keeping the money, I returned it as well.

    This kid was waiting on us at 'Not your average Joe's' and it was his first day there. Later on as the crowds thinned out and our discussion had, as usual, filtered down to politics and society, kid was having some difficulty getting two tray fulls of glasses onto the counter and I gave him a hand. Bartender gave me a free drink too ..

    After a huge party my neighbors had the other day I found a bunch of their paper plates, plastic eating utensils, chicken bones and empty beer bottles on my lawn. I promptly returned them early in the morning so they wouldn't miss them.

    Oh great. My dogs were just barking up a storm so I went to investigate. There's a cute but ugly springer spaniel all lonely and scared in this wind.

    So now I have a snake AND a matted pooch that I have acquired all within less than 24 hours.

    So, if I fall asleep under your truck or sit in the alley howling, I can move in. Good to know.

    I let somebody else on the TdC last weekend use my sunblock because of all the things they had at the rest stops, sunblock wasn't one of them.

    Some gent left his car running at the gas pump while he went in to buy some ciggs. I promptly moved the car, turned it off, and locked it so no one could steal his keys. Or car for that matter.

    I was then able to help the oil companies too by filling up with premium. Yay me!
