The bus driver

  • 30th Aug, 2005 at 11:55 PM

I got on the bus last night, the 129 in fact, going northbound up Parc. I was holding a bunch of shopping bags, because I had gone to Canadian Tire. It was a quest to get a tea kettle that wouldn't blow the fuses in my flat, which I successfully acquired.

If anyone wants a free electric kettle, feel free to ask.

Anyway, I got on this bus, and I saw the bus driver. He was grinning and smiling, like he was on top of the world. He had a little dish of "gratuit bonbons" and a yellow balloon with a smiling face was tied to the handrail.

He had a little cassette player belting out cheerful toons, and he had obviously decorated the bus with balloons before his shift started. I sat down, looked about me, and couldn't help grinning.

Too bad all the other passengers looked too tired to notice.

This is, like, a regular thing he does? God I think I kinda love him a little bit!

Its been years since I took the 129 regularly, but there was a bus driver on that route that used to do that sort of thing all the time. I'm glad he's still there, or better yet, someone else has decided to follow in his footsteps!

Did he have crazy white hair?
Because if he did I've been serenaded by him more than once.

If you see him again, you should ask him!
