A Run-In with Kindness

Today I was passing a coworker's desk on my way to somewhere else in the office, and she quietly stopped me and said, "You know, Scraps, you have a run in the back of your tights." (I was wearing black tights, this being the season for them, so it was quite noticeable.) This in and of itself would have been a nice thing to do, because I for sure never would have noticed it myself (how often do I look at the back of my legs?) and I would have walked around all day with a run in my tights and looked rather foolish. At lunchtime I could have gone out and bought myself a new pair.

However, she didn't stop there. She reached into her desk drawer and pulled out a brand-new pair of nice black tights and offered them to me on the spot. She didn't even ask me to pay her for them, although I did offer and she accepted. She said she usually tries to keep an extra pair or two around, just in case she or someone else needs them.

I thought that was really nice of her, so I wanted to share. :)

That was very considerate of her.
