My cat hurled up a hair ball on my comforter. Which means I had to wash my comforter. Which means I needed the large washer in the laundry room. Alas, the company that services our laundry room has been less than available, so instead of two large machines, we are down to one.
Of course, when I went down to the laundry room I saw someone at the one working large machine. I didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t tell if she was putting laundry in or taking out- so I asked her… she was about to start…
She pointed out an empty machine, but I told her the whole cat hair ball comforter story…
She said- “Oh- I just have clothes- I can use the smaller machine” and she proceeded to take out her clothes so I could use the big washer.
I am grateful for what I can only say was an act of kindness…an act of generosity done with no expectation of getting anything in return…
I’d like to think I would do the same thing for someone in that situation.
