This Bus Driver’s Simple Act of Kindness Made a Woman’s Day! | #WhoWeAre

And I remember one woman, in particular, a
senior who had gotten on my bus and she seemed completely lost. I could see she
was confused. I don’t know whether it was an illness, but she looked so beautiful
for a hot summer day to have a fur on. So I said, “Are you okay?” And she said, “I’m
fine. I’m fine. But I don’t know the restaurant I’m meeting my friends.” I said
“You sit in the bus, I’ll run in and I’ll check each restaurant. The very, very last
one on the left, I said, “It’s got to be this one.” So I said, “Stay here, Sweetie,
it’s really nice and cool in here.” I went in. I said, “There’s a lady in the
bus and she’s not sure of the restaurant.” And I saw a whole bunch of other seniors
there, and then they said “Well it’s Poppy Hall [sp].” So I ran back to the bus. I
said, “Sweetie, your restaurant is right here.” And I said, “No. No. Don’t move.” I
grabbed her hand and then on my right hand grabbed her right hand. I wanted to make
her feel special like it was a Limousine: it’s a bus. And she said she felt like
Cinderella. And she said, “I’ve been diagnosed with cancer and today is the
best day of my life.” Just because I helped her off the bus, and I never forgot
that woman.
