A while ago, I was waiting for who-knows-what bus at Central, and an elderly woman approached me.  "Can you help me?"

I'll bite.  "What do you need?"

"I don't see very well.  Can you tell me when the 517 gets here?"

Fair enough.  We both sat on the bench as several buses went by.  Finally, as the 517 swung in, I said, "Ma'am, this is the 517."

She got up and said, "Thank you.  I hope your bus comes soon."

As she got on the 517, I thought, isn't that a nice thing to wish someone.
