Hey all you kind people out there!!! Anyone care for some altruism? I was at the market this Sat. In Lancaster and a woman could not pay her whole bill. The market vendor told her that it would be okay...so he is the real giver. But when she left, I said I would cover what she could not pay. I can't decide if true altruism can ever be made public. As soon as one person knows of our kind act, we get recognition. So even though I did not want the social exchange theory to come into play, it did. The attendant at the market thanked me for paying and it sort of felt like a reward of some kind.

Good luck with your one random act. Just to let you know I am right there doing the same thing I require of you!! Hope you are enjoying the break.
