When The Fare Is Fair

, , , | Working | June 29, 2016

(I didn’t hear all of this exchange, but I heard enough to know it belongs here. I’m getting on a bus when a passenger in front of me starts putting coins in the fare box. I should note that fare boxes on buses in my city don’t give change. The driver stops him after he’s put in $1.50.)

Driver: “Okay, stop there. You put in $4 last time, so I’ll just apply the $1.25 you overpaid as a credit toward your fare today.”

(Thank you, bus driver, for reassuring me that some drivers really do know and care about their passengers.)
