A Refreshing Gesture

Last Friday morning as my train pulled into downtown, the engineer/driver turned on the intercom and wished everyone a happy weekend. He went on to mention that it has been his great pleasure to take us to work all week and that our regular engineer will be back on Monday.

The entire train car erupted in spontaneous applause. It was so unexpected (especially in Philadelphia’s rail system) that we could not help but smile while leaving the train.

What a great reminder … the simplest gesture can brighten someone’s day.
