A good deed often goes unnoticed

Per a recent discussion with a curious hamster... I have decided to mention good deeds gone noticed.
The other day, Mr. Necessities (aka Schatzi) picked up a bunch of papers off of the street. Some of these papers had very personal information on them and when he tried to contact the owners via the contact information on them to no avail (the documents were dated a few years back), he shredded them. Now, sure there may be problems with the fact that he shredded the paper, but imagine if a rapscallion had picked them up and was using them for ill will... plus, he could have just put them in the trash... so I think the fact that he went to the extra effort deserves a word of praise.

Note to people, destroy papers with your private information on them... you never know where they will end up.

The owner would have known if the papers went into the wrong hands, but will never know how fortunate they were that they did not.

Good policy. I shred absolutely everything with my name and address on it, even though anyone who wanted to find out my name and address could go and look it up on the electoral register at the local library. Make those fraudsters work for it, that's what I say...

I'd say that's two good deeds. Tidying litter from the street counts as the first one, and then taking the time to do the right thing with the papers is the second. I suggest double praise is in order.
*applauds* and then *applauds again*

I'll be looking to put up a good deed post this week too.

Sometimes the owner doesn't find out. It depends on what deeds are executed. I think I need to invest in a shredder.

What a good idea to post a good deed of the week, every week!
