My Coworker's Selflessness

A recent time I have experienced someone else demonstrating a random act of kindness was in my workplace. One time a customer came up to me and was asking for the manager of my department.

Paper Heart Attack

One of my favorite activities to do with students is a paper "Heart Attack". I was introduced to this idea when some friends of my daughter "heart attacked" our front door. I took this idea and now do it at school.

Shopping

Something I was taught and have carried on doing is letting people at the supermarket with baskets go before me when I have a trolley-load of things. I see it as common courtesy, but from the reactions this gesture always receives I realise it's seen as a random kindness. It always makes me feel better, anyway.

Compliments impact my day :)

When someone compliments me, I get flustered and act stupid. So when a couple people I didn't know (during different time periods) complimented my style in clothing, my glasses, me, I just stood there feeling tingly and really happy. I tried to respond thank you and act cool and all, but really, it comes out weird and embarrassing. But now...
