A bus driver gave a sweet surprise to his thirsty passengers—and a thrill to some local young beverage entrepreneurs.
On a hot summer day last week, Boston bus driver John Lohan asked his riders if they’d mind making a short stop at a roadside lemonade stand – his treat.
So the 19-year veteran driver for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority pulled over on his West Roxbury neighborhood route and hopped off—then on—then off again, to bring each of his passengers a cold glass of lemonade.
The refreshing gesture took all of 90 seconds – about the time Lohan says he typically spends at a red light.
“The biggest thing I thought was that the children have a story they can tell for the rest of their lives. And then afterwards, I thought, ‘Well, so do the passengers,’” Lohan told WBZ-TV.
Lohan gave the kids $10 – a hefty tip for 7 glasses of 50-cent lemonade.
He says it’s still the cheapest round he’s ever sprung for.
