Wow, this made me sad, but happy at the same time:

I have a lot of respect for Pixar right now

That's sad but an awesome act of generousity at the same time!

It's touching too know that large corporations still have a heart.

Sad indeed. But if I were that employee, I would have left the DVD with her to keep.

That's very sad. Good think Pixar created the movie and not Disney.

Wow, I seriously tip my hats to that...

Think about it. Thats a MAJOR company and to have the CEO type authority to get a dvd copy of a just released movie into the hands of a sick little girl shows some very serious compassion. It was really nice reading this, as it reminds me that there may be some decency in the business world after all.


It helps a lot too that she's a witty little f*cker
