If it's true then this is actually super cool of the guy.
@DividedAlliance, it was cooler before bragging on social media about it. This makes it more or less the equivalent of posting a picture of yourself giving a homeless person money.
@DongBobbler, idk, I think if you do something nice you deserve to be proud of yourself.
@DividedAlliance, fair enough. Can we agree that claiming humbleness automatically invalidates humbleness?
@DongBobbler, at the same time we never get positive news, I'm actually cool with it
@DongBobbler, To be fair, he's also bragging on the kid's determination and commitment to his education, which nobody else seemed to care about.
@DongBobbler, i didnt take it as bragging so much as "look at how important education is to this kid, i gotta help him" The guy wasnt exactly saying "look at how nice i am for helping this kid"
@PunnyBaker, so just don't post it. Maybe I'm biased and cynical because I understand how PR (do nice thing, tell people about nice thing) works, but I just don't buy that this is anything more than a typical me me me post.
@DongBobbler, totally agree, like the vine showing the guy giving a homeless guy a pair of shoes. I guarantee if he didn't have his phone to document it that homeless man never would have gotten those shoes. Tons of videos like that, more for glory than for kindness.
@DongBobbler, Check the tags at the end of the post.
@DongBobbler, I think the difference between what you're talking about and what happened in this picture. Is how this happened more randomly. Most people who go off to brag about doing something nice plan on doing it. Helping homless videos for example. While this is more random. I can set out to help the homeless because they're there. I can't just wake up one day and say "Today I'm going to find a random couple with car troubles and help them!". Stuff like that is more spontaneous and wasn't planned as a "look at me I'm so good!" but instead is just showing people at our best. You learn alot about people when something comes out of the blue.
@Jdrawer, the tags are about as valid as if I were to claim that the entire story is a lie. This dude found a picture on Facebook since school just started, took it, and made this whole story up for attention. You can start a hashtag with positive connotation, but if this is what you need to make it trend then it's based on a gimmick. I'm not trying to pick on you or anyone else, I'm just skeptical of literally everything.
@DongBobbler, things like this need to be posted. A) it's a positive image for youth that struggle to go to school on a daily basis B) it shows to continue your goals no matter what. As a title I school teacher, I want to hug the guy who posted this and shake the hand of the kid. This is a positive example for both families AND students in a similar situation.
@DongBobbler, I think it's also a good example to others, we don't get to see these as often as we did in the past
@DongBobbler, Virtue is only virtue as long as it isn't conscious of itself as virtue. Then it's doing the right thing for selfish reasons, which is just an ego trip and maybe hoping people will like you more. A truly virtuous person is virtuous because that's just who he is, so it's genuine and he doesn't expect something for it. Then people will like you because you're not just bullsнitting.
Why didnt he ask his dad to give him a...oh...never mind
@your virginity, mmmmmmmmmmmmm
@your virginity, oh you
@your virginity, Daddy gotta work!
Faith in humanity restored a lil
He's gotta gun!!! Shoot him!
Oh wait nvm, looks like a cell
*takes bullets back*
Waiter, there's Facebook in my funnypics.
Teach them to knock on random doors...disturb the peace of others...and get into stranger's cars...that's good parenting..word.
Tbh, if I was that kid and some random fella offered me a car ride, I'd fvcking run
He probably took him to the wrong school
The joke is he has a gun in his hand I believe.
What a hero
I just found a new dad!
Gotta get to school so I can ditch.
Not sure how this is funny, but I love the story.
Inb4, the reason no one gave him a ride to school was because he was expelled for making "Suspicious Threats."
