The Guy in the Bus
One sunny day in August me and my friends went to a local music festival, I left the festival early because I had an appointment later in the day. My friends walked me to the bus stop and waited with me untill the bus arrived, we waved good bye and I sat in the spaces near the back. A couple of stops into the journey I noticed a guy sitting at the front of the bus, you could see that he was mentally disabled and was pretending a tiger toy was real and giving it a voice.
There were people sat behind him who he was trying to talk to but after some minuets they walked away and sat at the back near me. I could hear them complaining about the guy at the front, they were being really nasty.
I sat and thought to myself for a few stops, I waited to see if anyone else would talk to him. I didnt want the people to laugh or make fun of me for talking to him but I didn't like leaving him on his own.
After a while I got up and walked the the front of the bus. I sat next to him and introduced myself, we had an amazing conversation and even found out that he goes to the church my youth group is at - he got off the bus before me and I felt on a high the rest of the way home.
I'm glad I made the choice I did, it made both of us feel good.
