    paying forward

    on the bus yesterday, 3 French students didn't have quite enough cash for their tickets to Bath and the driver was getting a bit fed up with them , when a guy got up and paid their fares . they were very grateful of course , if a bit mystified, but as he explained, someone did it for him once , and he'd promised to pay it forward. i've always believed in this, nice to see it in practice !

    Have done it many times in the past, it's good to see it's still being done

    This happened to me last December on the way back from a rally. There was a guy at the front of the queue in the petrol station and he was on the phone to his credit card company. From the conversation overheard I worked out that they had lowered his credit limit on his card without warning him and his card had been declined, he was begging them to just let him pay for the fuel as the petrol station did not have a policy of letting non payers leave without payment.

    I offered to pay and he eventually agreed asking for my details so he could send me a cheque in the post. I paid for the fuel and then asked him to pay it forward. He asked what I wanted him to do and I said that he should just help someone else when they really need it. He said he would help someone to at least the same value, I said the financial value is irrelevant, just solve their problem.
