Is this a little weird, or is it just me?

       Every morning, when the kids and I are walking to the parking garage, we see this one woman walking from the parking garage. We always smile and say good morning. Last winter, she slipped on the ice and we helped her pick up her stuff. We have exchanged names and had a little small talk, but I don't really know her. This morning, she stopped me and I asked me if I could stop by the bank where she works if I had time. I went over there after I dropped the kids off, and she gave me this basket of gifts for the kids. There was also a card for me with $20. I accepted it and thanked her, but I was a little thrown. Does anyone else think this is a little weird?

No it just seems like a kind gesture to reciporicate your kindness.

She's being kind, generous and friendly. It's unfortunate we think something like that is weird.

Nah. It sounds like she's nice. And appreciated you helping her. She is probably lonely.

No why would it be weird? Since when are nice, kind, friendly gestures weird? I find it sad that is even a thought.

How wonderful of her. Not weird, just uncommon in today's times.

Only on CM can manners and a thank you gesture be weird.

No I don't find that weird at all she obviously is thanking you for your hospitality there is nothing weird about showing gratitude .
