My young teenager just went to the shop to buy some eggs for me; unfortunately she tripped over and dropped them just outside the shop and phoned me to ask what to do, I thought she was in the shop and said to go and speak to the shop staff. While she was pondering what to do a man who was going into the shop saw her predicament and went in and bought a new box of eggs and several bags of sweets for her. She tried to refuse them but he insisted, she's brought them home. It seems wrong to eat them somehow, not sure what to do with them instead. WWYD?

Why does it seem wrong to eat them? Do you feel that the man had ulterior motives behind his RAOK?

Why does it seem wrong to eat them? What on earth will you do with them otherwise? confused

Be glad! and grateful! Why is it wrong to eat them? The man didn't need to do it, he wasn't forced, he was obviously happy to do so. Accept with good grace.

When I was pre-teen, I fell and broke a jam jar outside the local shop. Nice passing lady bought me new jam and some crisps. It's always stuck with me as a kind act by a stranger. I don't see the problem tbh.

Remember to pass forward the kind gesture.

We've donated them to the food bank. It just felt wrong to eat them because it's not like we haven't had enough sweets, my daughter decided that we'd do that.
No, I don't think that he had an ulterior motive.
