Pay it forward...

or not, it's always your choice. I've been tossing up whether or not to write about this over the past few days, but what the heck, it's a good idea.

Last Friday evening, before my flight to Brisneyland, I lined up to grab a quick sub. I decided to pay for the sub of the guy next to me as a random act of kindness. I quickly payed up and wandered off before he knew what was happening. Every now and then I do this when I see an opportunity of getting away cleanly without an awkward conversation.

On Tuesday, when I arrived at work, my boss called me into his office and completely out of the blue and randomly he said had just approved a pay increment for me. Was this good karma coming back to me? Are the two completely unrelated? I'm guessing they are. But somewhere out there in the cosmos I'm kind of hoping that maybe there is a connection.

So, it's time for an experiment. Your turn. Go on, give it a go and I guarantee you that something good will happen... and that may be as simple as making someone's day.

I never got the chance to say it, but thanks for buying my lunch! nah... I'm just fuckin' with ya.

I like your idea though - a little random act of kindness never hurt anyone!

Fab! I did something similar once a long time ago. I didn't get any karma returns but I literlly bounced about all day. It felt so special and soooo much fun. you're right. It's time we should all do it.
