    as you may know my mom has cancer. well she moved in with me as she needs 24 hour care. so me and my GF take care of her. well my apt didnt have air conditioning. I posted on Craigslist about this and a man dropped off an AC today. Just said he hoped it helped my mom. he hugged her and drove off. What a nice thing to do. My mom is still crying.

    It is the little things that remind you that there is goodness out there still. Congrats.

    I am very sorry to hear about your mother. She is very lucky to have you to take care of her.

    Best to you all,
    Dave

    It would be funny if he just dropped it off because it didn't work and he wanted to get rid of it! What?

    Wow.

    Not only does this make me happy because it's a goddamn nice thing to do, it also pleases me because I've never heard of anything good coming out of craigslist.

    That's totally kick ass. It's nice that things like this can happen to people who need it.

    I wish some of the people I talk too as part of my collection calls could be nicer. Damn, charge up your credit card and then yell at ME because of your problem? I swear, some people are truly idiots.

    As for kindness and compassion, I show that on a daily basis to my customers and I get in return. I'm not rude to the people I talk to, but I can be short and blunt. There is no need to berate someone over certain situations they have no control over.

    It was awesome for that man to do that, and I hope and pray your mother improves. Miracles happen and there are angels amongst us. Take care and best of luck.

    Wow. That was an awesome thing for him to do. My Mum and my sister both had cancer last year, and pulled through; they both said that a lot of it was because they had people there who cared about them so much. Kudos to you and your GF, and all my best wishes to your Mum!
