Altho' I did give to the homeless animals who's families can't keep them because of the damn BP oil spill; and I did a pledge to Bernie's Place to help her out.
On the other hand, I - along with many others in my group - were gleefully giggling at the end of the day Friday because of others discomfiture. Here's the story. I have mentioned that my division is getting sold off from my big corporation. The corporate people haven't been real pleasant to deal with - somewhat " we're still in paradise" attitude, and really pretty snarky towards us poor losers who are getting sold off.
Today we found out that the WHOLE COMPANY might be sold off!! It actually would probably be great for us, as the stock price will rise and who's going to argue with more money in one's pocket. But there were also a few quiet grins and snickers at the expense of the people who ahve been snobbishly avoiding us and are who are now trying to be pathetically friendly. I did actually feel a bit guilty at feeling smug on a Mitzvah Friday - but I got over it.
So here I am, a mean girl, feeling a bit happy that someone else might be suffering too. The best deed that I can claim is that I didn't say anything to anyone who was feeling down - I did not gloat, I didn't snicker.
I owe two for next week.
