That dude is a true American hero.

Damn, it's dusty.

Really nice.

Why was it being filmed?
 
2020-09-19 3:20:37 PM  
That's beautiful and wonderful.  I hope it isn't ruined by two utterly crap-tastic sequels.

Are you saying you don't film random people at the checkout line?

The police were VERY clear that they did not appreciate such things

Was that filmed by Senator Vreenak?

I expected John" Quiñones to pop out.  Good man.  Good on you.  It'll come back to you, somehow, someday.

That's nice and all, but #1 why is the video on? Is it because this man was on a mission to help somebody, anybody that day? It's staged...and that's not even a problem. It shows how things should/could be.

#2...Why are the diapers the first thing she's willing to not buy? What else was she buying? I mean, if she had to get rid of the diapers to afford the formula, ok.

See? It's not that hard to be kind to one another.

Looks like something staged by some wanna be influencer, who's eventually hoping to profit.  I'm going to rate it as a one star movie.  Poor camera work, unconvincing acting, and an utterly predictable feel good plot.  Would not watch again.

I know people who film CONSTANTLY looking for "Karens In The Wild".  I'm wondering if this one didn't go as planned, so they changed the narrative.

Perhaps someone was having some good laughs at the misfortune of someone else. Or maybe they wanted to make a statement about how poor people can't afford basic needs.  I'm not so cynical that the entire thing  was staged, but I hope not.

Buying the next person's stuff is what you do in that sitch, if you can. It's called "pay it forward"

I'm told it was a Tik Tok experiment to see if people would step up to help

This happened to the ex once. She had gotten about $200 in groceries, I was home with the kids. BoA decided at that time to cancel her bank card because it's suspected fraud. She called me, freaking out and as I was about to get my shoes on some lady walked by, swiped hey cc and walked out before the ex could say thank you.

This is how we need to do things. Take care of each other when we have the means and opportunity. This guy is a hero, maybe not to us who watch the video, but to the lady who is able to get what she needs for her kids.

Couple weeks ago, big ass RV turns the corner in front of me and dumps a suitcase and a guitar case. Guy keeps going. Light changes, I zip through the intersection, stop, grab the stuff, and throw it in my trunk. Somebody is stopped just ahead of me watching me do this. The rig is stopped about a half mile up the road. Two other cars have stopped by the RV but nobody is talking to the guy or getting out of vehicles. He's starting the long walk back.

I pull up, run the window down, and yell "hey, I got your ..."  Guy doesn't hear a word, keeps going, doesn't notice I've popped the trunk. I get out and yell at him again and he looks at me a bit bewildered. I pull his stuff out and he's shocked. "You're good people around here."

I don't know where he was from but it was kind of sad he was expecting the worst. I guess I've lived a few places where the worst would have happened quickly.

Anybody film it? Who cares? It's not a big deal. The guy at the checkout? Not a big deal, really. I mean, diapers, c'mon. Those aren't luxury items. How do you not help a person out?

When did being a nice human become such a rare thing?

Because most people equate nice with saying hello. And by that I mean when you are out the door on the way to your car, say hello. Basic courtesy that costs nothing and has no cost. Stopping what you are doing. Going out of your way to help someone and getting nothing back? THAT is what is rare.

Wish you'd been around 13 years ago when we lost 2 vintage Gibson mandolins and a banjo from our open trunk. Retraced our route when we realized (less than a mile) but the mandos were gone. Found the banjo in the gutter. We tell each other if we'd been 10 minutes later, we'd've found two banjos there.

I don't know when, but we are definitely in a time now where instead of helping people in need, most people are hoarding toilet paper, hand sanitizer, whatever happens to be in short supply. It has been one of the sources of great disappointment in society in recent months.

If you're ever captioning a video, think twice about your choice of phrasing:

"Yeah, take the diapers off."

He's seen enough.

Honestly, I'm not sure I like an America where one has to rely on the kindness of strangers to buy diapers.

Yes, I understand that's the America we live in, and within that sphere of existence it is certainly a great kindness to help out others who are in need, but just like all the outpouring of money into various "Please help me defeat cancer" GoFundMe pages, wouldn't you rather live in a country where that kind of thing wasn't necessary?

Sub Human: Buying the next person's stuff is what you do in that sitch, if you can. It's called "pay it forward"


Back when I was a total fat bastard and at the Taco Bell drive-thru, I would do that.

It actually started one night when someone did that for me. The window clerk then said it had been passed car to car for 7 or 8 cars now.

Annoyingly, I had to break the chain as no one was in line behind me.  So now I do it every time I go to that particular Bell.

I find that annoying. I've had it happen at Tim Hortons. I can afford my cup of coffee. Stop the random 'pay it forward' and instead donate to a food bank or help someone that needs it.  I think people keep doing that for me because I drive a rusty old pickup truck. I drive that ugly beast because its reliable and I haven't had a car payment in almost 10 years. But I don't need charity. My income is sufficient to pay less than $2 for coffee once in a while.

"Pay it forward" doesn't mean you randomly buy the next persons coffee. It means when you are helped by someone, you are not expected to reimburse that person, but you are expected to help the next person you can when you have the means to do it.

If everyone who got in a jam and was helped out became the sort of person who is willing to help someone else out of a jam this might end up being a decent place.

Paying for the next guy's coffee is silly and showboaty IMO.

That was nice.

Recently a lady was buying some stuff and simply said "is there anyone that needs gas to be paid for?" and it turned out there was one person pumping who got $20 or so in gas , she didn't care how much she just wanted to help someone out and she paid for their gas.She also wanted me to not mention anything about who did ,she wanted it to be anonymous so I had to say "somebody unknown" purchased your gas , they were very surprised and couldn't believe someone just did that out of nowhere.

This world would not be worth living without that type of dark humor.
