Good deeds

We’ve all heard the saying
no good deed

I am sure we are not alone in being ‘punished’ for doing the odd favour.
Here are some examples:

We took some rubbish down to the tip for an elderly friend and got a nail in our tyre, which cost £40 to replace.

I took my mother shopping (years ago) and got a parking ticket for £70 as my ‘Pay and Display’ couldn’t be seen. (It had fallen on the floor, so I argued the point and got let off).

I broke a tooth after someone insisted on my trying their home-made toffee (£86 crown).

I was volunteered to take someone home from a ladies group meeting only to discover she was 15 miles out of my way.

Hubby trained a young lad in his line of work so well that the company let him go when they had to make staff cut backs.

In the office, I offered to help someone out with their backlog only to have it included in my daily workload thereafter.

Recent posts have told of us looking after our Friend, but now we are back home, Hubby is running a temperature and gone down with a cold!

I rang our Friend today and he is sounding much better. He has an appointment to see a consultant next week to discuss his latest treatment and their conclusions.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    In remember holding the door open for a lady (?) once. It was met with a tirade of accusations about me thinking she was not capable of opening her own doors!
