Last Night: In Fairness

I just wanted to send this picture to you to show that there are some extremely kind and generous individuals who work for Dublin Bus. I witnessed this moment of kindness on Sunday afternoon on George’s Street [Dublin 2] when a driver for Dublin Bus was tying an elderly person’s shoelace who was unable to do so himself. Really great to see.
