One kindly bus driver has got Facebook buzzing with a selfless act of kindness.
Mashable report that William Harris, a driver for Bus Éireann in Cork, Ireland, went above and beyond yesterday to help an older passenger who was struggling to get off his bus and now his story is being shared like crazy on Facebook.
Hi! I want to commend one of your bus drivers who was driving the 205 service from CIT to Kent Station at 15:40. As an elderly lady was getting off the bus she almost tripped. Once she was off, the driver noticed that her lace was undone and he stalled the bus to tell her. When she said that she knew, he realised that she wasn’t steady enough on her feet to bend down and tie it herself, so he got off the bus and tied it for her. He was so kind to her and went out of his way to look after a customer. I haven’t seen someone do something so kind in as long as I can remember and the lady was so appreciative she blew a kiss as the bus was pulling away. Your driver made my day.
His family soon spotted the post.
People were quick to praise Harris.
Apparently though he isn’t the only kindly bus driver in Ireland.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
