Your Friday Awesome: How to Thank Your Bus Driver
Okay, sure. I've taken public transportation in a number of cities and not everyone loves their job. In fact, some bus drivers hate their job and by association you, but can you really blame them when they get to deal with not so nice, or fresh smelling people all day long?
My new bus line is like the Cadillac/penthouse/business class of bus lines. A handful of stops on a limited rush hour route, frequented by regulars who can (almost) always get a seat. The two drivers who do the morning route are super friendly, timely and one guy makes sure that we know what time it is, what the weather is like and that he wants us to have a good and productive day when we get downtown.
Remember when you learned about bus drivers on Sesame Street? Its kind of like that:
It would be awesome to do something like this for them, but I don't think the guy that takes great pride in letting us know just how early he gets us to our stop would be too excited about it. Maybe I'll just give him cookies.
