do something nice for someone

Late last week, just before the extended long weekend (for some), when people are anxious to get out of the office, three colleagues of mine went out of their way to help me with a problem at work. Things went missing, stuff didn't happen when it was supposed to, and the trio did what they could to fix the issue. Beyond doing a favor for me, though, they have helped themselves. Perhaps a superior will have noticed their efforts, but even if not, I will (a) be the first one up to the plate should any of them need a hand and (b) sing their praises any chance I get. They are building themselves a reputation for being thoughtful people who are good to work with – an invaluable reputation in an industry as small as ours.
