Oxford Street saviour

Posted on Fri, Mar 27, 2015 at 4:00 AM

We were getting off a very crowded #1 bus at the Oxford Street stop heading north. We were both leaving from the middle doors, which opened to a huge icy snow mountain before the sidewalk, blocking our exit. I only saw it once you had catapulted yourself over it like a champ. The doors were going to close so I made a weak, half-assed jump onto the mountain. You offered your hand and helped me over it and explained that you really gotta go for it or you'll get stuck on the bus until the next stop. You're a gem. There should be more people in Halifax like you. Thanks for the help! —The Timid Bus Escapee
