No Good Deed Goes Unpunished…short non-fiction


I was out the other day at the supermarket and in their snack bar. I got a soda and sat down. A man in a electric chair came up behind me, but he couldn’t reach the soda machine. So out of character for me I asked him, “Would you like some help?”

He said,”yes” so I took his cup.

“Do you want soda?”

“Yes”

“Okay would you like ice?”

“Yes,”

“And what kind of soda?”

He wanted Dr Pepper, so I set the machine up after getting the ice, filled his cup, put on a lid and gave him a straw.

He said thanks and and I turned around and dumped my soda all down the front of my shirt, the chair, the table, the floor and my handbag.

We all had a good laugh and I said, “No good deed, goes unpunished,” and everyone was off and laughing again.

I did my good deed and felt great about it.
