understanding

My landlord, who is usually super critical and tries to blame problems on me when I call, was immediately helpful today when I called him with a suspicion of bed bugs. I didn't sleep at all last night and was dreading having to talk to him, so I was immensely grateful that he was so understanding about it.

kindness

I signed up for a spin class, but realized after getting to the gym and starting to change that I'd forgotten socks - and you can't really spin without socks, too sweaty. It was too late to cancel the class, and we're only allowed 5 absences. The front desk girl signed me in anyway so I wouldn't get docked!

patience

My friend helped me work through a particularly tough policy argument for a legal paper I'm writing. Her patience in explaining some of the finer details is admirable and something to work towards myself!
