DH is in the process of painting some rooms in our new house as well as the stairwell. The ceiling in the stairwell is really high and he couldn't reach to the very top with the ladder he owns. He did as high as he could with the ladder he has then was going to rent a taller ladder from our local hardware store. They rent out tools, scaffolding, etc, so he assumed he could rent a ladder as well.
He got to the store this morning and went to the cashier to ask about the rentals. She said they rent out just about everything but not ladders. DH didn't want to buy one though because this is the only project he'd ever use such a tall ladder so it would be a waste of money. He was going to then ask some guys that he works with if they have one he could borrow, but he didn't have to. The customer behind him in the line up (complete stranger) offered to let DH borrow his ladder! Told him he's more than welcome to borrow it to complete his project and just return it when he's finished with it! How nice!
DH just finished painting the stairwell and just left to go return it, along with a gift card for Tim's (Canadian coffee shop).
Anyone else have any nice stories of random acts of kindness?
