I was going to band today. Only problem was that I had to take my fretless Shergold, which is in a HUGE case. Anyway, I was really struggling with it when all of a sudden this elderly man came up and asked me what was in the case. I told him it was my bass and he saw that I was strugggling to lift it so without any asking he helped me with this huge case.

We got chatting on the bus and he began telling me about how he'd been an Army musician and asked me about my playing and my band. After a while it turned out we were getting off together and again this lovely gentleman carried this huge heavy case for me, and even walked me right up to my band practice room.


It restored my faith in humanity.

you should always be nice to old men because they might be billionaires in disguise and then when they die they leave you their vast fortune because their kids are spoiled bitches.

It's a shame that stories like this come along once in a month...
It all makes sense
We're capable of beauty
Through sounds that make on cringe
The dogs only hear us now

Considering some of the things I know (you can't not know some nasty things when you live where I live) I should have no faith in humanity whatsoever. But hearing things like this make me want to not give up hope.

I wish old men offered to do things for me...

Some guy threw a biscuit at me yesterday though. There I was aimlessly walking somewhere stoned and this chav throws a rich tea at me from a car. I mean throw a digestive or a ginger nut, something I won't mind eating off the floor but no, he threw the ****tiest biscuit imaginable.

And he was driving as well, he could have pulled over, offered it to me or something. He did yell "GOFF! YA DIRTY GOFF!" though so I think possibly the biscuit gesture wasn't a kind-hearted one. Then he drove off. And what was I left with?

I'll tell you, some crumbs on your neck and a ****ing rich tea biscuit with ants on it.

Ditto, and then you try to run away when the people coming towards the door aren't looking....

Some days I can see how amazing the world is... and at other times I believe it's a foul existence. You win some you lose some.

People who can't be assed to help random people aren't very good people. Small sacrifices and help out a lot.

I ended up lending some guy bus fare twice a week for about three weeks. He actually came back to me where he'd usually find me at the station and paid me back with a tip because had just got a job. I was one of the few people who helped him get around whilst getting that job or he might of been stuck.

A few months back, I found myself in the middle of England with no money, a suit case, a backpack, a tent and a backpack. Thanks to sheer good will, I hitched a ride to London and got a train back after traveling the streets and sub way and got back home to Somerset and got there thanks to the general good will of people on my way, to helped us get to the station, through the sub and we even got money to help us on our travel (my friend lent me some of hers, I was donated some, how much I will not disclose). Everyone I spoke to on my way back home, absolutely everyone helped us in one way or another, even though I was some scruff teen who hadn't showered in awhile, shaved for awhile and had a greasey ponytail with dreads being tied back.

I even snapped at someone whilst on the train whilst putting my stuff awhile as he made a rude comment to get me to hurry up putting my stuff away. He later came down and apologised, offered me some beer and asked my story.

He was just one of so many who showed kindness to me on top of loads who helped.

And people say people are self centered.

When I saw the title I thought it was going to be sarcastic. This isn't funny. But seriously that's nice I guess

He just wanted your anal virginity. Don't be naive.
However, very nice of him. Also very nice living in a place where you can allow someone to take your stuff.
If someone over here would ask you to help you carry something, the first thing that everyone will think is that he wants to steal it.

I remember some old lady with a zimmer frame was waiting at some lights infront of me and some of my college mates and her frame got stuck and she toppled over. Me and my mates helped her up and checked if she was ok.
Which was nice.
Afterwards we kinda laughed at how she toppled...And felt bad

He'd have a hard job if he'd tried to run with it- this case weighs a TON!
