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?
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.
