An example of empathy (from “13 Going on 30”)

At one point when I was recovering from a surgery I wasn’t feeling very well, so I ended up watching a lot of movies, including 13 Going on 30. I was struck not only by the humor of this particular scene in the movie, but also the empathy. When I worked as a manager, I always appreciated it when employees could see my situation from time to time. It shows a certain maturity that is rare to find in employees.
