My good deeds today were office-related ones. In the staff kitchen, when the coast was clear, I took a moment to wash and dry the coffee spoons (that are made available to staff as an environmentally friendly alternative to the dreaded stir stick).
Then later, when I noticed that not one of the five staplers available in the photocopy room actually had any staples in them, I restocked four of them. (One of them did have staples inside, I discovered, it was just refusing to share them.)
And in my ongoing research on how to best deal with found items, I came across this letter in my local paper. Another great idea! (I should really try to get a government grant for this important work.)
“Recently I attended a show downtown and parked on King St. I was in a hurry and didn’t notice my gloves fall from my lap when I got out of the car. By the time I realized they were missing, I didn’t have time to go back for them.
“After the show when I returned to my car, I found some kind soul had evidently picked up my gloves from where they had fallen, and tucked them between my car’s radio antenna and windshield pillar. They aren’t valuable but they are special to me, and I am thankful for this kindness. You can be assured I will pay it forward at every opportunity.”
P.S. Heard this song on the radio this morning from Canada’s Natasha Waterman. Enjoy!
