A few days ago I left my umbrella on the 95 bus. Blue, cheap little POS. Nothing to go into fits over, but the next day it was raining so it sorta sucked. I get on the bus, and casually ask my driver if she’d seen it. She’s my regular driver so we chat pretty much every morning.
“Oh yes I turned it in!”
I told her it was ok, not to worry about it and that I could grab another one somewhere. I thanked her for turning it in and remembering.
I hop on the bus this morning, and it turns out she’d went back to HQ and got the umbrella, hoping she’d see me to give it back.
It was very thoughtful, and pretty much made my whole morning. Thank you very much, 95 morning bus driver.
It’s the little things, folks.
