Insane Kindness

I am flying out insanely early tomorrow morning to attend a weddding. I was planning on waking up at 4 AM, quickly throwing on clothes and driving to the airport, which is about 35-45 minutes away. I was asking some co-workers which route they thought would be the best for me to take to the airport. One of my co-workers was asking me what time I had to leave, where I lived, etc., etc. Then he offered to come pick me up and drive me to the airport that early! He has to travel from Queens to NJ to pick me up and then back to the airport. I vehemently protested, but he wouldn't hear of me having to park my car at the airport. I told him 100 times to call me if he can't do it - haven't heard from him yet. What an amazingly, ridiculously, insanely kind thing to do!

One time, an NCSY advisor of mine did the same thing for me. I was going to be coming back from Israel on a flight that got in at 5:00 a.m. Without even blinking, she offered to pick me up at that insane hour, because she lived near the airport, and that way my parents wouldn't have to drive through the night to pick me up. My mother thought at first that I had asked/coerced her into offering; she didn't believe me that my advisor had actually volunteered to do it! I gave her the girl's number and told her to call and confirm if she didn't believe me...and she kept calling all summer, just to make sure! But in the end, my advisor met me at the airport and not my mother. :)
