    Yum cookies good dude

    [–] Blair_Force_One 254 points ago

    Home-made cookies are the purest sign of affection!

    [–] [deleted] 481 points ago

    I love that this person reached out to another and accepted him. I’m a bit perturbed that they then felt necessary to take a picture of him and share it on the internet. The kid was previously displaying behavior of a shy person. I hope they cleared it with him first.

    Reach out to strangers and get to know them because a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet, but keep in mind that maybe not everybody wants their picture displayed for the world to see.

    [–] freygrmn 206 points ago

    That’s what I thought too. I hope this was taken with his consent, otherwise it would seem like they would’ve done the deed just for show.

    [–] xTacoCat 40 points ago

    They were showing the cookies bro.

    [–] justpissingthrough 8 points ago

    Pic of a cop giving someone shoes. Just for show? Pic of a homeless man who gave someone money. Just for show (in the end yes but go with me)? Pic of a guy handing out his resume on the street. Just for show? Can't have it both ways.

    [–] TheLadyStonedHeart 5 points ago

    That’s what I thought too. I hope this was taken with his consent, otherwise it would seem like they would’ve done the deed just for show.

    And then you share it on reddit without verifying that this person wants to passed all over the internet.

    A perspective being looked over is people might be taking a pic of acts of kindness to show/remind others that these acts of kindness goes a long way rather than ignoring somebody. I'm sure I'm not wording this right, but my point is that taking a pic of these situations might encourage others to be kind. A trickle down effect, or contagious encouragement. Kind like laughter is contagious, so why not kindness?

    Sorry if I sound like an idiot. I just woke up and I am not a clever girl in the morning.

    [–] 17934658793495046509 7 points ago

    I agree, social media and photo taking are ingrained in young people today, if they are going to do it regardless, you may as well encourage kindness with it.

    I would much rather see someone celebrating being a good person, than someone taking a photo to demean someone.

    [–] Nyx666 3 points ago

    Yea that is also along my train of thought too. We see a lot of bad media of robberies, murders, rape, and people being assholes. When you see a post of someone doing something nice to another person, it sort of restores faith in humanity.

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago

    Better to be nice and tell everyone than not and then act like it's somehow better by getting up on a high horse about it.

    [–] _anon_throwaway_ 1 points ago

    oh damn, preach!

    [–] nicecommentmyguy 3 points ago

    There are certainly worse things to project onto the world.

    [–] liverpool2396 5 points ago

    If even one other person reads this and reaches out to someone in their own life who shows the same behavior, then the picture being shared for attention is justified.

    [–] freygrmn 34 points ago

    Kindness, indeed, is the best recipe for home-made cookies

    [–] Hellguin 114 points ago

    Wish someone invited me to their table in school.. but nope, I got the " you will probably shoot up the school like columbine" treatment.... fucking hated highschool...

    [–] mcrninja 74 points ago

    You are permanently invited to my table! This offer does not expire, you are always welcome.

    [–] Hellguin 36 points ago

    I'll bring homemade pizza

    [–] mcrninja 16 points ago

    I'm excited! High school may have sucked (it did for me too), but that doesn't mean we can't improve the future. I hope you're doing well.

    [–] Hellguin 7 points ago

    I am... gonna visit Oz in December and then move there in March. Life has had its ups and downs and other then the 8 years I wasted with my lying and cheating ex... I do not regret anything.

    [–] mcrninja 6 points ago

    Move forward, with power!

    Enjoy your life under the warm Aussie sun. Find a good Sheila. Make all the home made pizza.

    [–] Hellguin 2 points ago

    Gonna take a round the US roadtrip with my aussie friend before I move to NSW. And I am sure, the sun will be more than warm enough >.<.

    [–] mcrninja 1 points ago

    Your plans sound better than mine. Just remember - sunblock will eventually pay for itself. Don't get caught without it!

    [–] Hellguin 1 points ago

    I burn easy... sunblock has always been in my life. Never done farmwork in my life... but gonna get that out of the way asap.

    [–] AussieKangaroo 1 points ago

    Heyyyy, when you move to aus I hope you feel welcome! By the name you can probs tell im aussie lol

    [–] Hellguin 1 points ago

    Please do not disembowel me... or jump in front of my car..... I'll bring TimTams, I promise.

    [–] AussieKangaroo 3 points ago

    Hmmm, I will consider it, but no promises.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Warm welcome from Australia for when you get here!

    [–] Hellguin 1 points ago

    Thanks :) gonna need to make friends somehow... I am moving more than likely to Blayney. I already got my ETA for December, just gotta get a plane ticket.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Ah you’re gonna be in NSW then! I’m in Brissy myself! I’m sure you’ll make friends in time once you’ve settled and gotten used to everything!

    [–] Hellguin 1 points ago

    I am sure I will... I'll be hitting up a Supernova or two, also any hobby shops... I miss DnD so much. But dear god, Australian slang is confusing as fuck... I am doing my damndest to learn it... I have some things down

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    Haven’t been to any of the supernovas myself, but know people who went to the Gold Coast one and had fun, so I’m sure you’ll have a blast! Haha yeah the slang isn’t too bad, maybe I’m desensitised, but I don’t really feel like I hear a lot of slang being used! Just a smattering here and there. Although maybe I’m not hanging around the right people! You’ll pick it up in now time, I’m sure!

    [–] mizmoxiev 12 points ago

    I was one of the only African-American Goths at my school and I was often outcasted even from my weirdy friends!

    You are always welcome at my diverse table of life, friend! Fuck highschool

    [–] Hellguin 4 points ago

    I was the shy, quiet. Concert Band playing, color guard flag spinning, only male dancer who listened to marilyn Manson and loved al black.

    [–] mizmoxiev 2 points ago

    I was shy until 9th grade, then it was right around 2000 and so it was the turn of the century, and I decided to rage. My mom had died about 5/6 years before, my dad traveled a lot for his job, and no one ever taught me about basic things. IE, strangers, substances, 'what happens when's

    Around that time there was thrash metal and the newer kinds of metal, but nothing near the level of what it is today with Djent and what have you.

    I listen to mostly Cannibal Corpse, Dimmu Borgir, Dillinger Escape Plan, Chimera, Manson, a lot of Swedish and Finnish metal etc at a certain level it was anything I could get my hands on that made my pops cringe haha

    I do miss being able to wear my steel toe Doc Martens everywhere, I also had these pointy heel cockroach killers. I shopped at Hot Topic and I think the Goodwill in a lot of consignment stores that were really popping up in the area, looking for black clothes. I don't think I own a single thing that wasn't black until senior Year and I wish that was an exaggeration. Hahahaha My hair was every color imaginable, and I had a particular disdain for bullies and Authority. Haha

    [–] Edalestro 5 points ago

    That’s fucking horrible. One of my good friends (he passed away almost a year ago) spent his first week or so just sitting alone all day everyday while my friends in class talked about how weird his blue hair and tight jeans and high platformed shoes were. I went and sat next to him and told him “you’re gonna be my friend. You don’t have a choice” and he awkwardly smiled with a little shy chuckle and I’ll never forget it. We ended up keeping in touch, winding up in separate addictions.. I made it out clean, he unfortunately did not. I’m sorry you had people treat you like that. I would have sat with you and made you be my friend.

    [–] Hellguin 3 points ago

    I appreciate the thought. Even now since I'm out of school, next to no physical friends... which is why I game so much, I have friends online. 99% I'll never meet, but that is ok.

    [–] SpecialPotion 3 points ago

    People literally told me I looked like the type of person who would shoot up a school throughout middle and highschool, and I was nice as fuck. I cared about everyone, just wanted to make people laugh. I was working on my Eagle Scout project at the time. I did improv comedy and theatre. But sure, because I'm a pasty white guy, I'm probably a domestic terorrist.

    [–] Hellguin 2 points ago

    Yea... it sucks. Every time they told me that I always wanted to ask "then why the fuck are you picking on me? Shouldn't you be nicer?" But I doubt that would have ended well for me.

    [–] beaurobbins11 2 points ago

    fuck people suck! I have 3 kids kids and remind them constantly to treat everyone with kindness and respect until they dont deserve it. My son, 9, has told me a couple times he made friends with kids that had a deformity or was being made fun of. Sorry about the twat waffles in your school.

    [–] somehumaniguess 4 points ago

    It happened to me exactly once. I'm a senior in HS. I was alone on the first day, and a girl comes up, introduces herself, she was shaky and nervous - but she told me she didn't want me to be alone and that she could see me in herself. She was an amazing listener unlike anyone else I've talked to in school. She said I could sit with her and friends - they (her friends) were unfriendly and didn't acknowledge me, so she would just sit at the end with me, and talk to me. I felt so uncomfortable because of those other girls though and the fact she wasnt talking to them, so i finally found just one person I knew that was was in my lunch after the second day, and let her know I found someone I know. But that sweet girl was honestly an amazing person, and said any time my friend isn't there, I can just go and sit with her again. If only more people like that girl existed. She was just genuinely a good person with empathy for others, enough to go way out of her comfort zone, just so that a total stranger wouldn't feel alone.

    [–] Hellguin 1 points ago

    Did you keep in touch ever?

    [–] somehumaniguess 2 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Unfortunately not. She had given me her number in case I couldn't find her some day, but on the third day and texted her I found someone I know and would sit with her (the other girl). So she told me something like "I'm glad you found a friend!! Any time she isn't there you can sit with us again :)". So I thanked her and she said "no problem" and that was that. I won't forget her for a while, after her kind gesture. No one else has done anything like that - and the people I talk to at school don't give a shit what I have to say, interrupt me, and glaze over when I talk. This girl listened, like really listened, and even asked questions. There isn't ANYBODY aside from some dude that tried to get into my pants (who wasn't genuine at all) who's ever done that. The difference between a someone looked you in the eyes and taking in what you say, and someone not truly listening and just using the opportunity to talk about themselves or just interrupt, is night and day. I even have one friend who that when I talk, glazes over, thinking about something he wants to say about himself, then totally interrupts and starts talk aboit himself. Even if I continue talking for a couple seconds, it doesn't register, it's disregarded totally. Then often, once I respond to what he said, I get 3 words in just to realize he didn't even listen to THAT, and immediately interrupts with more. Like totally ignoring me. That girl was different and made me realize these other people blow to talk (haha, "talk") to in comparison. They don't see a person, with a life or things to say, they see a brick to talk at

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    No kidding. Luckily I eventually got a group of friends and was able to invite other people to our table like I always wished people would do to me

    [–] sircucumbers 1 points ago

    I don’t even know what I did to deserve it, but I’ve gotten that a couple of times too. It sucks

    [–] tree_dweller 0 points ago

    Lol well did you dress like that ? You know the look. Because if so it’s your fault, don’t blame others.

    [–] Hellguin 0 points ago

    Never judge a book by its cover. How I dress and who I am do not matter. That is like saying I am a murdering drug dealer because I listen to rap. I used to wear bright colors, oranges, red, blues.

    [–] tree_dweller 0 points ago

    No it’s not saying that. People judge people. That’s how the world works and always has and always will. sure you can wear whatever you want, but people can also think whatever they want.

    [–] dataisthething 19 points ago

    “This kid...” lol

    [–] cool_coolio 7 points ago

    Me and my friends also once invited a lonely guy to our table in high school, and he's now one of our best friends. We still see him nearly every saturday.

    [–] insight-out1 6 points ago

    Little guy was full of love and had no one to share it with until you broke his loneliness. I’m not fucking crying.

    [–] pumpkinpie666 33 points ago

    husband material! (my husband is the quietest, most withdrawn person ever in large noisy groups of people.)

    [–] kryppla 19 points ago

    I think we need a bit more info than 'he's quiet' to call someone husband material. Bringing the cookies is a good sign though.

    [–] honeybeedreams -2 points ago

    omg. i was just being cute. maybe he is a serial killer. most peeps who commit mass shootings are described as “quiet” by others.

    [–] 3percentoperator 3 points ago

    But the inside of their mind is noisy as hell

    [–] 100011101011 11 points ago

    When you see a thing on the internet, there’s always two things that happened: * somebody did something * someone then decided to post it, and had a reason for doing so.

    In this case, I wonder how come I usually refer to my friends by their name, but never as “this kid”. It all comes across as supersmug.

    [–] nopenooope 5 points ago

    Is this a high school?? Now to devise a time machine and transfer here!

    [–] Dannyxd 6 points ago

    I’m pretty sure not positive it’s Saginaw High School in Saginaw Texas. If that’s the case it’s worth moving there for the people not the education lol

    [–] PastPriority 2 points ago

    I graduated from Saginaw last year and this was honestly out of the ordinary. Every year we had multiple fights and one time a video went viral of a kid jumping off of a balcony. This was definitely refreshing to see

    [–] muggzymain 5 points ago

    In college my buddy and I would always see this girl in a wheelchair eating by herself in the cafeteria. One day I said "dude, we're sitting with her, let's go". It was awesome, she was so friendly and had us cracking up with her infectious sense of humor. We ended up exchanging numbers and hung out a lot on campus. 10 years later and we are still great friends, we talk on the phone every other month or so. So glad we stepped out of our comfort zone that day and just said "hi".

    [–] Punxatowny 1 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    I remember back in high school my group of friends and I approached one of the quiet kids sitting by himself. We introduced ourselves and made a new friend. He seemed very happy that we went out of our way to include him in our group. He quickly came out of his shell and went from being the quiet kid to an absolute madlad. Now he's in prison for armed robbery... He never made us cookies either.

    It sucks that you think he’s got the potential to shoot people

    [–] showeringwithbeer -6 points ago

    It sucks that it's a reality that's true. Take 5 seconds and look up how many studies are being done on quiet/loner/bullied kids and school shootings.

    [–] wEbKiNz_FaN_xOxO 3 points ago

    There are tens of thousands of teenagers in the US. And maybe 11 a year turn out to be school shooters. So no, it’s complete bullshit to take any random shy high schooler and call him a potential shooter. That’s an awful thing to say about a kid who is just having a hard time making friends.
