Bus Report #635

Another crowded bus this afternoon.
A wheelchair passenger got on at Potrero - a young man, early 20s, with CP or something similar.
At Mission Street his hat fell off his head and onto the floor. I was in the back of the bus but I watched as he tried to get the attention of the older woman sitting across from him.
He looked at her and then pointed at the hat, then looked at her again.
It took a few minutes for her to understand what he needed.
She asked the girl standing in front of her if she could pick up the man's hat, but the girl just shrugged and looked away.
The older woman sighed and slowly stood up and picked up the hat.
She tried handing it to the man but he couldn't grab it. He pointed to his head.
The older woman settled the cap on his head and sat back down.
