What Would You Do?

When Janice entered the lunch room–it looked more like a large closet–Emma knew what would be her co-worker’s first topic of conversation.

And, she was right.  As Janice pulled her foil wrapped sandwich out of the paper bag, she said, “That’s a trip about Mrs. O’Donnell.”

“I know,” Kristie said.

“What goes around, comes around,” Emma said, coldly.  “You can’t be that nasty to people and expect good things to happen.”

“But, still, no one deserves a potentially fatal illness,” Kristie said.

Just as Emma was about to respond, Sue Alexander, Mrs. O’Donnell’s assistant, came walking into the room, flinging her long, red hair behind her shoulder.  “I’m signing people up for the bone marrow drive.”

Emma, Kristie, and Janice stared blankly at Sue. 


What would you do? 

Imagine you have an abusive boss or a co-worker who is facing a terrible illness.  Could you find it in your heart to help this person?  (Leave a comment and/or participate in the poll).
