The Kindness of Strangers

When was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind, generous, or selfless for you? Tell us what happened!

A few weeks ago I went to go see Jurassic World, which isn’t bad but I don’t really understand how a 125 minute Mercedes advert go to be the biggest film ever. Before going to the film we went to Almost Famous. I’d been craving Bacon Bacon fries for days! Upon ordering, I was given my cream soda for free – result!

I’d love to say that this was out of the goodness of the barman’s heart – a small gesture to further brighten my day. Alas no. He forgot to put it through the till, and then couldn’t be bothered.

Baby’s all dressed up, with nowhere to go.
That’s the little story of the girl you know.
Relying on the kindness of strangers,
Tying cherry knots, smiling, doing party favours.
Put your red dress on, put your lipstick on,
Sing your song, song, now, the camera’s on
And you’re alive again.

Carmen by Lana Del Rey
