Return in kind

Sometimes, little gestures of thoughtfulness from your colleagues and friends or even strangers, leaves a deep impression on you. Even the smallest act of kindness reminds you of the goodness that exists in this world and your faith in humanity is restored. Your day begins to look good and you feel a spring in your step and a smile taking possession of your lips.

One such story touched my heart today. My friend who sits a little further way from me was telling me of her colleague who moves out of their shared work area to attend to her mobile calls. This ensures that my friend is not disturbed as her colleague needs to settles issues with training vendors, which necessitates shouting, screaming, abusing and not so kind references to their ancestors.

Now the kind colleague walks out of her work area and shouts, screams, abuses and makes not so kind references to the vendors ancestors...in my work area! So thoughtful no?

We are planning on reciprocating the nice gesture by taking her mobile, and flushing it down the toilet. Friday looks rosy already!

Have a great weekend folks!

Highly annoying behaviour that is. Don't you all have a meeting room or something that people can use? I mean where u can take this colleague and give one smack next time s/he do it?

Was scared when I started to read the post. Has Silverine turned into a good soul? Where are the horns we love. And was I happy to see them right there on top of your head.:P

I have no one to shout at. I'm right down in the bottom of the pyramid of screaming. Its a sad case. Something needs to be done about it.
