Huge thanks

To the person who returned my student ID: I was on my way to a school event (where I actually needed to present it) when I realized it must have fallen out of my pocket. I backtracked and was frantically texting my roommate when you walked up and held it out to me. I asked your name, but was too flustered to remember it, or to really thank you properly. I have no idea how you managed to find it on such a windy evening, but thank you!

Just a couple of dunces

You were reading the same book as me on the bus, back in March I think. You had just finished writing an English proficiency test for your permanent residency, and we talked about the book. I have regretted not asking you what your name was since, and am wondering if we will ever cross paths again.

Sorry I scared you

To the #7 bus driver on Tuesday afternoon: Sorry I jumped in to ask you if you could call transit dispatch and report a bus with serious mechanical problems. It was leaking a lot of smoking fluid all over Gottingen Street, and I kinda panicked and must have seemed intense with urgency. You seemed worried, maybe about your personal safety, and said no and drove on. I totally get it, and I wish I had been more composed, I know you already put up with all sorts of difficult situations every day on the job. Sorry!

I saw you at the most recent HomeBass. You were dressed in green neon and grooving effortlessly on the dance floor. I took your cool neon sunglasses and you slapped me for it. I think I fell in love right then and there. I hope I see your red hair at another event, you're truly something special.—Not cool enough for you

Sorry I Hurt Your Feelings

I didn't mean for anyone to see what I wrote in my makeshift Burn Book. I genuinely liked so many people in that place, it was a nice team. With you guys it was more complicated. I had good days and bad days with you. We had some laughs and interesting discussions. But sometimes there was a barrier to understanding, unfair judgments on both sides, and hurt feelings...first mine, then yours. It's too bad we couldn't bridge the gap. Half the fault is mine on that front. Maybe one day we'll mend the fence. I don't hate you and I wish you happiness. You're good people who did a shitty thing, and I can definitely relate. If I could give one piece of advice it's that your instinct should tell you who the real assholes in your environment are and to stay away from them. Don't ignore that instinct, they're the worst. Good luck! —Cady Heron
