How often do you get something free in life, let alone something useful. This morning I arrived in my office only to be greeted by a colleague (K) bearing free shoes. And not just any shoes, but Garmont Hiking shoes. We’re talking top quality, here.
Evidently, one of her friends bought a pair last year and lost the receipt before he decided they were too narrow for his feet. Rather than see them go to waste, he gave them to K – who is indeed very good at freecycling – and lo and behold the shoes were thus bestowed upon me.
They’re the right size and everything. Yet another good reason to maintain loads of friendships: random acts of kindness!
