Ok, so I decided that one of my coworkers at wm needed some help this season (4 kids, always broke because of having 4 kids, living in brother's basement, medical problems with a couple of the kids, 4 kids... you get my drift)

Anyway, I thought to myself, self, we need to do our good deed for the Thanksgiving season (as apposed to the back to school and Christmas season) and I went to management and asked that, if I bought some things (Thanksgiving dinner stuff), if it could be left in their office and given to said person before they went home on Sunday (a day I do not work). This would also keep that person from spending money she either didn't have or needed for other things. My asst manager said certainly and then preceded to come up to the deli and *talk* about this with myself and another person. Granted, all she wanted to do was to see if there were others that wanted to help out but... I am so not comfortable with that scenario.

Now, I don't know about you, but the whole purpose of a good deed is that sometimes, or even most of the time, NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT IT. Maybe I'm crazy, but that's just the way I feel about it. Sometimes it's ok that the person knows about the gift, no matter what it is, and sometimes it just should be anonymous.

This was one of those times.

Fortunately, the other person sort of agrees with me (about the whole anonymous part) and although, yes, she's giving me some money to go along with the money the asst manager gave me, (and some wonderful hints on different goodies to buy), well, it's the principle of the thing.

So, Saturday (at some point) I'm going shopping and buying all sorts of goodies for their Thanksgiving dinner, and I'm just going to have to hope that nobody blows the gaff.

Good deeds...

Next up, the Angel tree opposite the deli.
