    So I just bought a new laptop the other day and today I went to a shop to buy a bag for it.

    The guy showed me the bag, I asked the price and he said 500 rupees ($7 USD). I paid him the money cause I knew for good that bag was worth 1000 rupees ($14 USD).
    I then walked into bank and came back to that computer store to buy a mouse as well. The guy told me that he didn't know the actual price and the owner had asked him to put 500 from his own pocket cause the actual price of the bag was 1000 rupees. I feld bad for him and paid him another 500 - he was bloody happy for that!

    10 minutes later I dropped my cell phone on the road and didn't know about it but a guy stalked me holding my phone and finally got me at a bakery and returned the phone to me. I bought him a drink for being this honest!

    What goes around, comes around :) Be nice to others and others will be nicer to you!

    He was the one in the situation so I'm sure he knows. Don't take away from the moral of the story. =]

    Bk071 - great to hear and I 100% agree with you! Be kind to others and people will (more or less) be kind to you.

    Thanks for the story and glad you got your cell phone back!

    I thoroughly believe in this type of thing, even when it just comes to helping people out online and not in real life!


    Congrats BK, hope that made your day and good to see you spreading cheer.

    Yes, even a single dollar/Rupee matters a lot. Look forward to see it reaching
    100 PKR mark.

    I don't want to bash you or anything but please keep your valuable comments to yourself... How does that even relate to the context of this thread?
