    I think the saying “No good deed goes unpunished” is apt. Especially in traffic. Let a car in when he’s actually cutting you off and it turns out he’s going to stop and make a left turn, or he won’t get up to anything near the speed limit. Every time I do something nice for someone, or I watch someone around me do something nice, they end up getting screwed up.

      I understand how frustrating it can be. Letting a driver in and then having them stop may seem like you’re losing, but look at the long picture. If the traffic light ahead is red, you would have stopped anyway. The length of a trip now may be a few minutes longer, but as in your example, letting someone in because they cut you off isn’t a bad thing. It shows that you didn’t let their mistake affect you or your vehicle. However, your passengers would always appreciate your acts of kindness if it helped them reach their destinations safer as well. Thanks for your comment!

      I think it all depends on your frame of mind when you do something kind, helpful or good for someone else. Don’t be negative, even if it backfires on you. Smile and be pleased that YOU had the right frame of mind and good intentions. Let them deal with the repercussions. Perhaps they won’t care, but more than likely, at some point in the future, they’ll need help and that’s when things have a way of coming full circle and kicking them for their past actions. And if not, hey, don’t sweat it. It’s not your worry. You won’t lose an entire month of time helping someone or making a difference in someone’s life. And if you have a negative attitude expecting to always end up on the losing end when all is done, that’s what will most likely happen. Helping others, especially when you can and they have a need, is the only right thing to do! Good deeds are definitely infectious and will most certainly make someone’s day!
