19 people share stories of when they tried to help someone and it backfired.

Usually, there's a payoff for going out of your way to help someone. You wrack up some good karma, get a burst of endorphins from seeing someone happy, and experience the smug satisfaction of knowing what a good person you are. But unfortunately, the universe is a chaotic and lawless place. And not all good deeds result in a positive outcome. Sometimes, being a good person can backfire in disastrous ways that makes you want to say "f*ck it! I'm done helping others" and fully commit yourself to a life of pure selfishness and greed. Is this where billionaires come from?

Someone on Reddit asked people: "What was your 'F*** it, done helping others" moment? These 19 people share stories of when they tried to do a good deed and it horrendously backfired:

1.) From archangelmlg:

I posted a futon on marketplace and the first person that hit me up gave me a sob story about needing something for their kid to sleep on.

I was only asking $20 for it but they asked if they could get it for free. My wife and I agreed to give it away, so I took it to our meeting spot at Home Depot.
