Good deeds don’t go unseen

    I’ve been snowblowing the neighbors driveway and sidewalks all winter. I haven’t received as much as a thank you.
    But I just keep doing it. Even when I can hardly do my own.
    They just stopped over and said they appreciate me so much and gave me a gift. Awesome, never had it and I really like it.

    How do I go about telling my neighbor he owes me whiskey too? jester

    Hate to break it to you but they don’t appreciate your efforts as much as you think. That bottle is 60 bucks. I only got a 50$ gift card to cabellas which real value is probably only 30$ jester

    It’s just the right thing to do so kudos to you.

    It’s all good either way. I seen the numbered bottle with elk head at 125. The other stuff at 60. I don’t mind either way. I only ever expect a thank you.

    Well done. The gesture is always worth more than the monetary value. Beside being a good neighbor you are setting a example for the kid. applause applause

    If you ever figure out that those stoppers can fit into wine bottles and you name it Carl and make a barfing sound when pouring $2 chuck at Thanksgiving it might become a family tradition.

    Not that I would know.

    But I just keep doing it.

    Good on ya!

    I do our drive that’s common with the neighbor along with his sidewalk. Plus I do the neighbor on the other side of us that has some disability and the elderly woman on the other side of the neighbor I share the drive with. She’s alone so I do her walk and driveway. I don’t charge anything. The docs tell me to stay exercised and this winter has kept me well worked.

    It’s all about just helping others. I try to keep my good deeds up. And I try to teach the kids the same thing

    well deserved Bcat! I been doing the same for the last 10 years. Never in it for anything but helping my neighbor out so he don’t get a heart attack. I been lucky as he is an executive chef and some of the “gifts” have been quite the treat!
    someday when i retire, i have always wanted to buy a plow truck and drive around plowing peoples drives. not only would it be fun but would feel so good helping out.

    Good on you bearcat. With how much it’s snowed this winter, you’d be getting a bottle every couple weeks if you were my neighbor.

    Nice….. I get warm cookies at times, and find it more meaningful than cash. Appreciation goes a long ways. Good for you being “that” neighbor.

    Nice job BC! My neighbor brought me a bottle of Crown Royal Salted Caramel for clearing theirs only 3 times, JACKPOT!!! Close friend had his second heart attack in October, quadruple bypass February 8th, so been clearing his driveway as well as mine all winter. I have now officially logged more time behind the snow blower than the lawn mower all last summer. Doesn’t seem right to me at all.

    Well done on you sir. I do the same for several neighbors. We have a great neighborhood and everyone seems to pitch in when they can. The world needs more of people helping other people.

    You seem like a good egg BC. Respect your common sense approach to life and setting good examples with your son and others as I’ve seen in other threads too.

    Amen to that fishthumper. I typically clear a an elderly couple down the street and the neighbor’s driveways in heavier snow falls and feel at times we don’t see enough of that anymore too. The aforementioned couple gave me a nice card and $50 this year. Completely unnecessary, but nice to know it meant a lot to them and does help cover some fuel and a couple of chiro visits depending on how much snow we get. I’m on the losing end of that one this year… rotflol

    I moved next to an elderly couple about 6 years ago. Over this time I have probably snow blowed there driveway upwards of 30 times with as much as a thank you. I dont do it for them I hope someone is helping my Grandma in the same way. Also help out other neighboors who at work so they can come home to a clean drive way.

    Kind of opposite in my neighborhood. Im 48 and the neighbor is 83. He always has my driveways cleaned up before i get home from work. Cleans up my leaves in the fall and even tills my garden. I always tell him not to but he enjoys it. We always bring them stuff. Yesterday my 7 year old brought them our first two bottles of maple syrup for the year and just got a call that the 4H fruit baskets I ordered for them are coming tomorrow.
