"Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him, and to let him know that you trust him."
~ Booker T. Washington ~
I was asked recently, by a complete stranger, to "watch her stuff please" while she went to get a coffee, and her "stuff" included her computer, which, if she is anything like me, is probably fairly vital to her office related life.
I imagine most of us have done this, or been asked by others to do this, and it fascinates me, especially since it probably almost always works out just fine. How can we be so certain about which strangers are trustworthy?
I observe myself thinking I know for sure what I may not actually know.
