Jenna and I took a bus out to Kearns Friday morning. A member of my former ward had passed, and I wanted to attend the funeral.
We have taken that route several times all summer long, but we had never had the driver that took us that morning. She had a million dollar smile that was so sincere. She greeted each passenger, as he/she was a personal friend.
I’ve had pleasant drivers before. I’ve had many recognize me and assist with needs when I couldn’t find my pass or knowing exactly where to stop or even asking, “Which stop will you be getting off today”
Most drivers are quite friendly – though there are the occasional passengers who will provoke. The driver’s I have seen have dealt with the situation well, but there are some who are obviously bothered and let the human side shine perhaps more than it should.
But this particular driver looked positive like nothing bad would interfere with her day and she would continue smiling no matter what. She deserves to be acknowledged. Thank you!
