We experienced awful things with strangers in streets, we are often afraid of people we do not know, but there are times when we encounter strangers who have done things which we consider kind and helpful. Have you experienced that?

I was a travelling sales representative in a company.My work required that i travel 10 days a month by bis to locations about 150 kilometers from my home town.One day i forgot to take my wallet and boarded the bus .I realised this problem after the bus started.I was about to request the bus conductor that i was wiling to get down from the bus.Then my co passenger realised my difficulty and lent me some money.I took his address and repaid him later.But my co passenger saved me from an embarrassing situation.

what i experience with a total stranger is that while on my job interview then theres gay there talking to me while waiting for our next interview. he looks so funny then all of a sudden he told me that someone steal his wallet and he didnt have money left so he didnt know how to go home and he told me to borrow a hundred peso so he can go home after interview. oh well, what a trick, he was able to tell funny things and then his telling his in need of money as his money was stolen, then how come as he can be sad at the first time than be funny. so i just told him i dont bring much money with me and what i have is also enough for my transportation and for lunch. then i go to the toilet as an excuse and never sit near with him when i come back.

oh that was bad, maybe he is just fooling you when he said he wants to borrow money. these guys will do even the obvious thing to fool people. i hope you encounter kind people someday. thanks for sharing netcoder!

last summer, I had gone 3 days without food, and was in a bad way. I was sitting outside a walmart and out of nowhere a guy said "get yourself some food" and gave me a dollar! I couldn't believe it! I went to a nearby jack in the box and got a chicken sandwich; my first real meal in days. usually strangers treat me badly. but this guy was OK.

Alright. The best thing a person had done to me is lend me money for our house so we won't get evicted. That's really so kind of him. He's a stranger but He's a friend to our hearts like an angel that fell straight from heaven down here.
