BUS STORY # 326 (John's Bus Story # 1)

I’m indebted to my daughter for this Facebook-posted bus story from New York City, and to its author, John Scott Tynes, for permission to post.

Sitting at the bus stop at 7:30 in the morning. Car screeches to a halt right in front of me.

Passenger door swings open, woman leans out.

“How much for your hat?” she barks. “I collect stars!”

I’m wearing a light brown wool cap with a dark brown Converse-esque star on one side, which I bought used for five bucks at Buffalo Exchange a year ago on a very cold night on my way home from work.

“Nah, I kinda like it,” I reply.

She scowls and slams the door. The driver peels out.

Minutes later, the bus arrives.

I felt the same way when I first read my daughter's email. Still makes me smile.
