I suppose the bus driver didn't see me because she kept on going. I waved and yelled, but it didn't do any good - for her, but another driver, going the other direction. He pulled around, let me board and wouldn't let me pay. He then proceeded directly to my door (he knew where I lived because he sometimes drove that other route), before resuming his schedule. He might have gotten a tad behind, although I am sure he was able to make it up. He also did one of the kindest things I can imagine, and it made my day!
