This bus driver by the name of, Mr Sng, made my night yesterday.
It was around 9.45PM when I boarded the bus 75 from NgeeAnn Polytechnic’s bus-stop. I was exhausted due to my training and couldn’t wait to hop onto the bus to take a nap. However as I tapped my ezlink card, I couldn’t help but noticed a box just beside the driver with a note that wrote,”Please help yourself to some candy and have a ‘Sweet’ journey ahead!”
I smiled and proceeded to take a seat without taking the sweets. 30 mins ride home felt short as I observed how the commuters boarded the bus, but I was shocked as I saw all 26 passengers that boarded the bus walked on without even taking a glimpse at the box of sweets.
When the bus was arriving my stop, I grabbed my bag and went up to him, started a quick conversation while the bus stopped. I could tell by his face that he was disheartened that people simply walked by. Before I left the bus, I took a quick snap as he smiled, grabbed a sweet and left the bus.
I realised that everyone was staring at me but I felt good. At least, I know that I’ve made someone’s night.
Just a story that I wanna share out! Have a great day ahead everyone!
