Random Acts Of Kindness



ACT ONE Send flowers to someone anonymously In the phone book just pick out a name This simple gesture will bring on a smile They'll never catch on to your game ACT TWO Leave a short note praising someone It could be one of your friends Watch as they find your very kind words They'll look puzzled then smile in the end ACT THREE You spy a parking meter where time's run out Some coins from your pocket you place When the owner returns expecting a ticket You will love the smile on their face ACT FOUR You're in a restaurant enjoying a meal Your waitress hasn't been too sweet Whatever the reason it just doesn't matter A big tip, her frown you'll defeat The loads of joy you get from these things Are simply just good for the soul Random acts of kindness my friends Should always be your goal! © Jack Ellison 2013

    wow, some of these are really good ideas, particularly the one about the waitress. Maybe it would cause her to think twice about being such a witch. That's one I would never have thought of!!

    Act one: Send the flowers and start a fight between hubby and wife... No... She's not stepping out on you... Act 2: They'll get paranoid that someone's watching them. Act3: They'll think the meter's broken and park there without feeding it... expecting same result. Act 4: The waitress will think you are mocking her bad performance... and get even... Gee Jack! Dragon now thinks you're like him... A problem maker... He likes your style! LOL... I'll take the flowers.Hubby says he won't get jealous.

    Just teasing... But send the flowers to an older unmarried woman for the best results... and the most appreciation.

    I really, really LOVE this incredible write my friend! This is such an amazing poem Jack I can hardly express how tremendous it really is! It fascinated me to no end and made me want to do all of those thing you have listed there! I've done the last two acts of kindness before, given a large, unwarranted tip to a grumpy waitress, and help out with the parking meter! I've never helped cheer someone random up with flowers, that would be weird, but wonderful at the same time! Great Work!!
