Now about this shit really working, here is a perfect example. You all know about "Panda" getting killed on the bike right? Even though I didn't know him, I still performed the memorial service to help ease the pain of some friends. A week or so later, I volunteered my time to host the benefit to raise money for the boys he left behind. See, doing good things right? So while there, a friend from facebook and hell, maybe even myspace that I had never met in person walks up and introduces herself. We had photo comments and such but never really much conversation. Since we really never met, what did we have to talk about right? She turned out to be really very nice in person. As luck would have it, I got pulled away and our time was cut short. The Microphone called! Now this fine lady is helping another friend who lives here in Az. He is going through a world of shit and I mean a WORLD OF SHIT! To make a long story short on this part, the state put this poor bastard on the rack and stretched him until he nearly broke! In this glorious process, he has damn near lost everything. The fine lady that I mentioned earlier invited him to stay with her and gave him a roof over his head.... that's good shit to do for someone! MORE GOOD DEEDS HAPPENING NOW!
So less than 48 hours after meeting this lovely lady I get a message. Her ex is jammed up and is really getting it good from the system. Like so many, he is beat down and near busted from the world we are all living in right now. He has a bike, a good bike and he needs to get rid of it. One friend suggested to another that they reach out to me. "Jack Shit is asshole deep in this shit" he said, if anyone can help you get this done quick, it's him! I got the message and took a look at a pic taken by cell phone online. It was hard to tell how it really looked, hell, it was at least intact! I reached out to the ex and made arrangements to check it out. When we got there, we got to talking about all the shit going on in every one's lives. I explained that we too had been beaten down hard over the last few years and suggested he just keep knuckling up and pushing forward. Here is the bike that he had to sell
See where I am going with this all? When you do nice, good things and do right by people, maybe the universe does kick it back every now and again? Had I not helped my friends in their desperate time of loss, I would never have been at the benefit, had I not been at the benefit I would not have met this friend in person, had she not met me in person, I would not have come up in the minds of my friends when they thought about the bike, had I not been a good friend to the friend living with her I would not have been suggested, had I not been a good person the guy with the bike would have thought me a scum bag and not made a deal with me, had he not made a deal with me I still would have told him about how to do better for himself but I may not have felt as good as I did about it! lol...
I always say just do the right thing and do it for just that very reason, because it is the right thing! It is just that simple! I will say though that it does feel really good to have something good happen back for you. I really began to forget about what it felt like when that happened. Don't get me wrong, I have exceptional friends that would do anything to help us anytime we asked, the thing is, we virtually never ask. What makes this so great is that this happened and I never asked for it to...... and THAT SHIT ROCKS! So, ya wanna see her ass? I thought so, here you go, hope you enjoy it.
