GET CARDED

" That's one kindness card you've handed me now. I'll give it back to you sometime. "

She said gratefully.

Kindness what?

Apparently I've been oblivious all this while. She explained that every time someone does a favour, they have extended a 'kindness card' which the other party is expected to return.

So is this a favourable practice to observe?

On one hand, I feel it is shallow and insincere to help out someone with the assumption that they are now obligated to you. Whatever happened to acting purely out of the goodness of your heart?

On another hand, I feel this is completely justifiable so you don't get trampled on by all the devious manipulative rascals running rampant in the world. 

Hmm hmm hmm.

What do you think?
