Here is an interesting story about doing something nice for another person (the Golden Rule way!) and it backfiring.
A 50 year old gentleman (no, really) in Florida was leaving a gas station and decided to do what any person with a little upbringing would do by holding the door open for the man entering.
Police said the 38-year-old man did not thank the other man, who responded by uttering a sarcastic “thank you.”
The two men got into an argument before the 38-year-old went to his car to get a golf club, which he allegedly used to strike the victim several times in the stomach and legs.
Yeah, so morale of this story. If you try to be a nice guy to someone and the person is totally unreceptive to said generosity, make sure to be the first to smoke the guy in the guy with a five-iron. If you wait, you could get clubbed.
