“What is the Saddest Thing You’ve Seen Another Person Do?”

Vegosha, who is from Lithuania, wrote: “Old man (80+) taking out a sandwich (like bread, butter, and a tiny piece of meat on it, like really tiny — 1/10th of the size of bread), trying to eat it with trembling hands and accidentally dropping into a mud [puddle], then breaking down and starting to cry. After talking a bit to him I found out he was living on a pension of 120 euros and that sandwich was his first and last meal for that day and, most likely, for the next day, because he had to choose, medicine + taxes, or food + taxes. To cheer [him] up, I asked him what food he liked, took him to a restaurant, ordered some food he liked, told him to wait me there after eating, while I was shopping. Used that time to buy some more food. To this day it might have been the most sincere ‘thank you’ I’ve heard all my life.”
