Heee... no school for today. It is Greenery Day (Midori no Hi, 緑の日) in Japan. A unique public holiday in Japan. As its name suggests, it is a day to commune with nature, to be thankful for blessings, and to foster an abundant spirit. So, on TV shows today, non-stop programmes about nature. Even the weather today is splendidly nice. Like an early summer.
Don't you just like the scent of green?
A Short Episode on Bus
Ok, too lazy to do a long post today. Going off soon to do my groceries shopping. ^_^ Wanted to write about an incident on a bus few weeks ago, here it is.
Among the days I went to take my driving test, there was one morning I took a bus with only "big money" in my wallet. I only had one 5000yen and one 10000yen with me, which I only realised when reached the bus station. I didn't have time to get small change, and went on the bus. For the ticket, I need to pay 220yen.
I went to the front, asked the driver to exchange 5 1000yen for me.
"Ah~ sorry miss, I don't have that much now." He looked at my 5000yen.
"But, I have no small change at all now." I told him.
"How much small change do you have now?" He then asked me.
"Not even a 10yen." Really don't know what should I do at the moment.
After he took time to think for a short while, "Will you be taking bus again later on?"
"Yes." I replied.
"Well miss, please pay to that bus then." Now that was an unexpected solution from him.
"I can? Is it really ok?"
"Yes." He didn't even give me a second reminding for that.
"Thank you so much." I thanked him once more before I get down the bus.
After exam, I took my bus back to the train station.
Before getting off, "I need to pay double. I haven't paid my previous fare with another bus." I told the bus driver.
And so, I dropped 440yen into the paying machine.
"Arigatou gozaimashita!" He said, I nodded and get down.
Ah~ it was a good feeling to clear my debt. Kekeke...
