My bus route has a lot of different drivers and they switch often. I miss one old one in specific though. He was the best.
My stop to go to work is near the end of the route, just two stops. Few people go to the stop after mine and almost none go to the final, where the driver takes a fifteen minute break before starting the loop again. My stop is two blocks before my office. I get off there because the next stop is two blocks after. Frequently, due to traffic, I end up getting to work as my bus is still going by.
The one driver I missed actually noticed where I was going. Since my office was in the middle of his four block stretch between stops, he’d stop at my office rather than two blocks before or two blocks after, when he could get away with it. He didn’t do it if there were other people wanting to get off on the actual stop. It was pretty thoughtful.
He hasn’t been on my route in a while. Not that he got in trouble, just that they switched all the drivers as they often do.
Yet another reason to dislike that.
