Free money is always nice, but Uncle Sam rarely makes that kind of mistake
Here's a victory of sorts I'd like to share. While I was in London on a school choir trip (go figure) a homeless guy spit on one of my female friends. I don't know what provoked it, but whatever. She was all freaked out, but I went over to the guy, who looked like he was about to hit me. I handed him 5 pounds (like 7.50 then), and said "Try to be nicer next time." and walked away. I don't even know where that came from, it just happened and was over before I realized it. She was practically yelling at me later, trying to understand why I would hand a guy money after he did that to her. Sometimes you just need to do something good, even if the other person doesn't deserve it. That is, by the way, probably the coolest thing I've ever done (not to toot my own horn).
