This week another occurance happened that surprised me as well. As I posted before, I lost my job last week. To sidetrack a little, I am a member of a roller coaster enthusiast group called Negative G. I had known from a chat conversation with the man who runs the site that he worked for a company in Illinois which also has a location here in Hagerstown Md. I emailed him the other day asking him questions about the company because I was planning on applying there. This man, without ever having met me in person, nor having a sexual interest in any way (Straight, Married, Children, etc) Gave his supervisor my name and contacted human resources with the company to try to help me out. I also put him down as a reference on my application. After a phone conversation today, I was scheduled an interview this coming Friday. Even though I don't know what the outcome of this interview will be, I'm just amazed that someone who I have only talked with online has done all this to try and help me find a job.
I'm not saying that I wouldn't do the same for someone else. I like to think I'm a goodhearted cub and I like to help people when I can. It's just nice when people go out of their way to help you when they don't even know you. As a Christian I thank God for these things.
