Bus Driver's First Day
--by kat94, posted Feb 18, 2021
Everyone was getting irritated. It was dark and cold out. My irritation soon turned into anger though, mostly because I was just getting over laryngitis and needed to get indoors. Half an hour passed and the bus finally arrived. We learned the driver was brand new and had gotten lost.
The regulars on the bus, including me, knew the route by heart, so we guided the driver step-by-step to where the stops were, where to turn, and how to look out for people wanting to board. I love the kindness that was shown to that man that night.
First days can be intimidating. I hope we all eased it for him.
