    What was your good deed for the day?

    My primarily riding buddy always points out my good deeds. Yeah they probably go unpunished, but I try to make a good faith effort to return the karma.

    Examples: Top of Crest Road in PV is a trash can, that might have been placed there by the city. Its small, but I usually see a few chewy bar wrappers or bottles left over from the previous nights drinking festivities. I figure if I pick it up, perhaps the trash can will continue to stay there, its a convenience.

    About 6 weeks ago, we rode past a 1" x 1" x 12" sitting right in the bike lane. I missed it barely, it was the same color as the asphalt. I stopped, got off the bike and moved it past the curb. Might have prevented one of you from having an accident.

    So Yesterday I saved this girl's rear. I had to ship a bare frame to the Bay Area and stopped by the PBS in Santa Monica (which was very close to a client). I was looking for a frame box (and didn't find one). I did however spot a small blue womens clutch purse on the sidewalk about 100 feet from the front door of the store. I picked it up, brought it into the store and asked to see the manager (first about the box, 2nd about the purse). I went through the purse; $100 in cash. Several gift cards including three from Victoria Secret, more gift cards.........her Church of JC Latter Day Mormon ID card.... her United Health Plan card, a photo copy of her marriage license........UCLA student ID card. Discovered a lot about this woman. No condoms or diaphragm. No phone number!!!! I got my bike box (not a frame box) and walked outside. Saw a woman and asked "Are you Brianna?" Yep. So she got her wallet/purse back. She thanked me.

    I could've used that $100.

    So what have you done lately?

    Only one cashier available at 5am so I offered to bag my own groceries (since other customers were waiting), then pushed my cart back into the store after I loaded up the car.

    Ooh...big tipper! I've been getting my morning coffee at Living Room in recent weeks, and I usually throw an extra $1 in the jar at least once a week (depends if I get a muffin for breakfast on my way in from the pool). The girl now is often pouring my coffee before I even get to the counter!

    I didn't hit anyone over the head today for being a numbskull... that counts as doing something good, doesn't it?
    Women think they're so clever because they can fake an orgasm for the sake of a relationship, but men can fake a whole relationship for the sake of an orgasm.

    I think my logging onto BikeForums and coming in here is my good deed every day. It brings all of you such joy and happiness for me to do so. Now, where is my brownie...points?

    That's not a good deed when one of us - not saying who - would actually like you to bane [said member]. Repeatedly.

    In my best Huell Howser voice: "It was amazing" we (the manager and I) couldn't find a phone number.

    I'm cleaning my desk and taking my friend to dinner tonight for doing my taxes. Do either of those count?

    I didn't login to the bikeforums yesterday. I haven't done anything nice yet today. I might take today off from being good.

    I paid Weekend Warrior to drop off cheesecake and assorted goodies to an injured and infirmed lady in Torrance. Those shut-ins need a little sunshine in their life.
