The woman in this story saves a worker from harm, but the kicker is that she just goes on with her day like it was nothing. Perhaps the only sad part is that the worker never got to thank her for it.
The submitter in this story. Two kids are throwing stuff everywhere in the supermarket. The cashier asks them to stop but the kids' parents accuse her of being a Fascist for ordering them and threaten violence on her. The submitter, a six foot tall guy who has injuries on his face from a sports match earlier, takes one of the cans the kids have thrown and tells the father that it caused his injuries and asks if he'd rather deal with him personally or talk to the police. The terrified father is forced by the submitter to apologize to both him and cashier for his kids behavior.

From Not Always Learning:
The security guard in this story started teaching himself about electrical equipment because he was tired of his houses burning down from faulty wiring. Not only does he save a tech-inept tech student from himself and fix several other students' busted projects, the last line of the story says that he knew enough to test out of all but the most advanced classes! note For those that might not get what that means, the guard already knew enough about the subject that only the more advanced classes would have provided him with additional knowledge, and so, after passing tests to prove it, he was excused from needing to take the redundant courses.
Not to mention, at first he thought the sound of the exploding lightbulb was a gun, and he immediately burst in screaming, "THE FUCK WAS THAT? AIN'T NO ONE SHOOTING UP MY SCHOOL!"
Similarly, these students stand up to a teacher who won't let them get counseling for a student's death.

Another mother. “I never thought I’d say this, but lady, I am suing your a**.”
This principal does not stand for bullying. After hearing that a student was savagely beaten by one, he calls the bully into his office, and after an extended period of time persuades the bully to apologize and promise to never bother the student again! He really looks after his school.
A minor example, but this chemistry teacher crossed his very large lab in about a second because he heard a student scream and thought they were hurt. Impressive and dedicated to his students' safety!
