Taking The Evil Side
VeryJosie did a very nice thing for someone the other day. Go ahead and read it. Do not worry it does not involve road head for Wolfie.
I read the story and I was very proud of Josie for standing up and giving the bus driver a dollar. Helping the kids out. It seems like they are nice, well mannered children who deserve a helping hand.
I have to say though, did the bus driver really do anything wrong? It is his job to collect the fare and give people who pay said fare a ride. He is not a charity organization. He has no moral obligation to give anyone a ride for free.
I am willing to concede that the world would be a much better place with more people like Josie. If the bus driver was nicer and gave the kid a pass I think that would be awesome. It however would not be doing his job.
I highly doubt the kid would be in any real danger by missing his bus. It might be another story if it was 12 o'clock at night. I assume it was not since Josie goes to bed by seven. The kid would have been inconvenienced. He would have had to get his cell phone out or find a pay phone or possibly go back to his school. He would have had to call his parents and possibly they would become more diligent at keeping the card topped off if they had to run down to Boston and pick the kid up.
In summary I think it is nice what Josie did. It shows what a stand up person she is. I do not however think the bus driver did anything but his job. Peace.
