Good intentions, bad results

I’m doing some research for this book idea (yes, I am going to finish the proposal at the very least; go 2011!) and stumbled upon this video from Reason.tv about good intentions with bad consequences – also known as the Law of Unintended Consequences.

I’m doing some research into good deeds gone wrong. Have you ever tried to help and made things worse? Been plagued by a well-intention do-gooder who made your life a nightmare? If you have a story, I’d love to hear it!
