He he. Thanks for that. Yeah, I know Mozilla are not perfect, but a non-political, non-profit organisation like Mozilla has more chance of doing right than a giant for-profit tech giant.

I removed my glasses and the right-side lens dropped out of the frame. Where the screw went, I have no idea. I brought the glasses to a small business I had never used, and the next day, I picked the fixed frames up. "How much do I owe you?" I asked the man, who shrugged and smiled, and replied, "I only put a screw in there. You don't owe me a thing." I reached out, shook his hand with appreciation and told him, "Thank you." Some days just seem to have kindness baked right in. #smallstories
