Times you've done the right thing and regretted it

I am sure all of us have done the good thing sometimes to only have it thrown back into your face.

I recently hit a truck in a parking lot, and like a good person I left a note with my number.

Not only was the guy an A-hole, but he had to find the most expensive place to get it repaired and instead of using one of the 4 other cars at his disposal that apparently sit in his driveway... he is making me get him a rental while they fix it.

So yes, I should have just drove off rather than to pay 2k to some @$$.

Don't do it unless it'll help someone you know you can trust.

Doing the right thing is always a bad idea, I've learned that recently. The universe always finds a way to screw you over, as if it's laughing at you for being a pussy. Covering somebody at work, for example, earned me a disciplinary. Trying to help a woman in the pub who'd just been kicked out from her boyfriend's flat earned me a fight with said boyfriend. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

So yeah. Just don't do it. The universe doesn't work that way.

Ouch, that is a bit nasty of the guy. The nice thing would have been to just bill you the repairs (it's hard to tell whether he got it fixed at his usual garage or not, it could have been his regular garage, it might not have been...). Claiming the rental car is just silly. I don't think that one is supposed to rent alternative transport while various alternatives are out there aswell, but then I am not a lawyer or judge.

Siddharth Gupta;4554764Sorry. I meant don't help someone unless you know them really, extremely, very well.[/quote]That sounds a bit unpolite. There is such a thing as helping an other person that is in need or doing small everyday favours or what is seen as morarily right. Ofcourse there is always a chanche of somebody abusing your kindness and good morals (ea: You have a trolley at the supermarket all stocked and a person with one pint of milk asks if he can go first, you let him go and then he or his parnter shows up with a basket full of other stuff).

Can you fill me in on this "wack the aligator" thing? Is it like "wack a mole", the classic fair contraption where you need to hit a mole (randomly appearing from holes) on the head?

I once did the right thing and didn't regret it at all. BUt I have to run now (soup is ready ad I don't want it to turn cold).

We need a whack a Donutz.

On topic, I can't remember this happening to me ever. I've never really done anything nice that could have the potential to come back and bite me, I'm a conservative kind of guy.
