Nice people

Last night, I was in my office pretty late. At about 8:00 pm, I was printing something off when I heard, "AE Jones, you still here?" My coworker, (we'll call him was still here and he came over to say hi. We chatted for a bit about our to-do lists and wondered together how we were going to finish everything by our deadlines. I had just finished eating dinner at my desk (which was actually supposed to be my lunch) and was running out to grab a bite to bring back and eat while he worked.

A few minutes later he came back and called out, "Hey, do you like hot chocolate?" "Yes, I love it!" "I got you some. Both working late nights, and I just thought hot chocolate sounded good." walks around the corner and hands me a cup of hot chocolate with a cardboard hand-protector and lid... it even had whipped cream on top. My jaw dropped.


Sincerely nice people still exist. proved that to me today. And no, I don't say that just because I got the "sweet" end of the deal. (No pun intended.) My coworker ways busy too, but he took the time to think outside of himself.

I rolled out of work around 11 pm... and held the door open for the cleaning people. Ha!


  1. Thanks for sharing this story. :) I LOVE when people do something that restores my faith that nice people exist. It's such a morale boost!

  2. This is so nice of! I love hot chocolate, too! My 11 yr. old son made me today some very delicious Lemonade. I thought it was a wonderful surprise.

  3. That's such a great story of how great people can and should be. And I loved his name :)

  4. This made my life better.
    Most especially because it reminds me what awesome people I work with.
    Hooray for hot chocolate!

  5. Nice people do exist! It's amazing how small acts of kindness have such a big impact. Makes me all happy inside:-) xoxo

  6. lives up to his name! Thanks for sharing. It really is those little things that remind us that big or small, acts of kindness are great in the eyes of the receiver.

  7. That. Is. Awesome.

    Can we change his name plate at work to reflect this amazing new name you have for him?

  8. Ahhhh, that is super sweet. Send some of those nice people down here to AZ. I think we've been lacking lately. :)

  9. IS HE SINGLE?!??! I cant decide if I want you to give him to me, or let you keep him.
