Cold Walk

A friend of mine told me a story over the weekend. She was an ice skating teacher while in college, and she had no car. On one particularly cold and miserably wet day, she was slugging through icy slush to the campus rink, feeling her feet grow numb. A few minutes after she arrived, one of her students arrived holding two cups of coffee. The student gave her one cup saying, "I drove by you walking to the rink, and you looked so cold, so I bought you some coffee."

My friend thankfully accepted the warm drink, even though she doesn't generally drink coffee..... but in her head she was wondering, "Why didn't she just stop and offer me a ride instead?"
