Normally, by the time my morning bus gets to my stop there are literally people hanging out the doors. Frequently, they come in packs of three and sometimes I have to wait for two or three to go past until I can hop on board.
This morning something very strange happened and all ten of us at the bus stop were all looking at each other as if to say "Is this a joke?"
A Limited bus appeared out of nowhere. It pulled up at the stop and it was empty. We were so excited when we piled on that I even thanked the driver for our late Christmas present from the MTA. At the next stop, everyone alighted except me. For the next five minutes it was just me and the driver on this huge NYC bus. The most peaceful, comfortable and stress free commute I’ve ever had.
