35 Pictures That Prove The World Isn’t Such A Bad Place
My husband is like that. though he is hearing impaired, he likes doing little nice things for strangers. One time we were out on a date in Down Town, the White House park (we only JUST begun dating then and I didn’t know him well back then) we were walking down the street when this drunk middle age man was trying to cross a street with his bicycle, when he lost his balance, fell and couldn’t get up because the pedal of his bike got caught in his pants, and there were people walking down same side walk and they just past him snickering. My husband (boyfriend then) saw him, ran up to him helped him to his feet, and holding his bike with one hand and the drunk guy with the other, helped him cross the street, and get to the hotel he was staying at. We still don’t know the reason the guy was so drunk, but he didn’t look like a financially struggling man, could be something bad happened and he was in despair, I don’t know.

In the above clip, Ferrell kicks off the battle with "Drunk in Love," a seductive jam from "the Queen B: the one, the only Beyoncé."
