Lothian Buses driver praised for stopping to tie OAP’s shoelaces

Post by Irn Bru on Thu Apr 06, 2017 9:02 pm

A bus driver pulled over and jumped out of his vehicle to tie the shoelaces of an elderly man he spotted walking by the side of the road. A heartwarming image, taken by an amazed passenger, shows the kind-hearted driver taking care of the OAP in the middle of an Edinburgh street. The man had been walking along the pavement, clutching onto a walking stick with his shoelace untied. Fearing he could fall and trip, the driver, known only as Jackie, was photographed bending down and tightening up the laces as a bus load of passengers watched on. Communter, Leah-ashley Brown then posted the photograph onto the company’s official Facebook page who reshared the post writing: “Well done Jackie.” Alongside the photograph, Leah wrote: “Kudos to the driver on bus 416 service number 3 for getting off to tie this elderly gentlemans shoe lace.”

What a wonderful generous act for the driver to take. It only takes a few minutes to stop and care for someone from falling over and hurting themself. These are values we should all hold in one way or another and it costs nothing to do it.

Well done driver, you deserve special recognition for doing that and I hope you get it.

Think that is a wonderful story. Ok, if every bus driver did it, it would be a bit chaotice but bugger the chaos, let's have a more decent world and with people like that around, that's what we would have.
