Bus Report #576

The other day I had just settled in to my seat on the 38 when a woman got on and tried to slip into the seat across from me.
She had a few bags with her from various neighborhood stores. She started to sit, the bus pulled out of the stop and into traffic, and the woman started to fall towards the floor, her bags flying in the air and her arms still loaded down by the bag's weight.
It was a curious thing, because I swear it felt like it was a slow-motion, five-minute kind of fall. I leaned forward and caught her left elbow, and helped her regain her balance.
She smiled and said thanks.
