I'll tell you why good deeds never go unpunished. It's because the world is a wicked place. I'm not referring to religion or whatever, but just the messed up stuff we do to each other for whatever reason. My point is- <br />
<br />
It takes a person of great character and strong conviction to do a truly genuine deed for another. Those who don't or who are wicked are jealous of this inner peace we like to share. Since there are so many more bad ppl than good ppl, they run the show overall. So in the end they get us back for making them feel bad about themselves. <br />

Just one man's philosophical theory.

It boils down to not thinking through the potential results of your actions. But as you mentioned in your case, sometimes you have to be willing to take the hit to save the bunker. People that blindly do what they think is a good deed without considering all the consequences are bound to suffer some kickback. I think this is where the ex<x>pression "choose your battles" comes in to play.<br />

In hindsight, ask yourself.... if you had known that preventing that child from being beat up would result in the same kids trying to rob you, would you have still done the good deed? Altruism is its own reward, expecting recognition or Karmic good fortune in return is not altruistic.
