Seat of Kindness

Last week, in a fit of pandemic boredom, I brought home a broken-down antique chair that our neighbors had thrown away. I spent a few days in my workshop fixing it up. Now it looks great, and I’d like to give it back to them. My wife thinks this would be weird. (We don’t know them.) I could leave it on their porch anonymously or find another home for it if our neighbors don’t want it. What do you think?

I love this act of creativity and kindness. I agree with Philip, put on a mask and bring the chair to their door. Introduce yourself and thank them for giving you a pandemic project. Then tell them you’d like to give them the refurbished chair, but if they don’t want it, you’ll be happy to take it away. Kindness is always welcome, especially in times like these.

  1. I would be inclined to invite you in for coffee and cookies or cake if I had any in the house. Depending on how the Delta is doing, maybe the promise of it, but at least a take away of thanks and delivery of something fresh-baked in return.

  3. I’d say keep it but that wasn’t an option!
