I was trundling along the footpath with my granny trolley, on my way to the shop.
Coming towards me, and desperately trying to hurry, was an elderly woman, heading for the bus stop that I had just passed and glancing behind her to see how close the bus was.
There's no way she would have made it to the stop to catch that bus, but the driver saw her trying and when she glanced back yet again, he signalled her to stop.
She did and he pulled the bus to the kerb, well before the scheduled stop and right beside the woman so that she could get on board.
That just made my day.
Things like that make me really happy.
I'm sure I smiled the whole afternoon.
Many bus drivers would have continued to the stop and waited there, so the elderly woman would have still needed to hurry, so as not to keep him waiting too long.
A few, who must have iceblocks where their hearts should be, would have just driven past her and kept going.
I'm pleased to have seen this, now I know we have at least one decent bus driver here in Adelaide.
