So someone at work has come up with the bright idea of Random Acts of Kindness probably a nice enough idea in theory but not this way.
We all had to pick a name out of jar and we have until Friday to do a RAOK for that person.
It all seems very forced and artificial, I always try to be kind to the staff that come to my room, I always help the ones that are disorganised or panicking, even those that are rude to me.
I work on the theory that they may have problems I know nothing about, though usually I do know what their problems are.
I also keep tissues in my room and staff know they can sneak in if they need a shoulder to cry on.
Now I'm faced with being kind to someone I don't know because they don't use the facilities in my room.
We have been told we don't necessarily have to spend money and that a RAOK could just be giving the person you have been allocated, a big smile!
Oh yes, I can see me tromping over to the other side of the school and leering at some poor staff member who doesn't know me from Adam!
