Why? Because they needed help, that's why. No other explanation was necessary then. I didn't think about the consequences of my actions. They needed help, and I short circuited rational judgement and acted on impulse. The problem was fixed quickly - they'd done most of the work before I intervened - and they were on their way again. They didn't have to say thank you. And later I was happy that they didn't, but I miss them now. I miss working with them soundlessly, efficiently. We ceased being individuals, and united as a working mechanism to drive them away from me forever.
