This morning on my way to work. I was behind a city bus. I watched the countenance of a student who just missed the bus change sharply. This was obviously a big deal to her. I quickly decided to pull over at the next road and offer the student a ride. She took my offer.
It turns out she had missed the bus for a second day in a row, and was going to be late for her class again. I believe she would’ve been late even if she had caught the bus. Anyways, by taking her right to the building at UW she needed to be at, she was on time. The change in mood as she left the car was huge.
