Good Samaritan bus driver gives the shoes off of his feet, to a barefoot homeless man.
In a world full of stresses, this really is a feel good story!

Kris, a city transit bus driver, saw a homeless man walking barefoot one day, the next day, it was cold and Kris saw the homeless man again walking on the sidewalk barefoot.
Kris pulled his bus over, got out, and gave the homeless man the shoes off of his own feet, then walked back to the bus on sock feet, got into the drivers seat and continued his route.

Never did Kris think another thing about his act of kindness, but one of his passengers told people about it and Kris’s act of kindness was soon on a local station and spread like wild fire.

Truly a wonderful story

If he could donate his suit and shaving cream and tonnes of axe to hide his aroma eau naturel, then homeless man can allly for a job.

Heck he could even give him a ride if he pulls the windows down and opens all doors.

Really? this is the only response... This was such a selfless act on Kris's part.

Has society gotten so worn down by all the world stresses, that we can no longer see the good in people?

Very kind...and I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT.

However, I wish he didn't use this kind act for a photo-op....that's all.

Actually, his boss was called by the reporters and arranged the time for an interview with Kris. The interview wasn't the bus drivers' doing. He really is a nice guy.

Hey when's the last time you chubby cheeked angels helped someone back on their feet and not just gave them your hand-me-downs? When's the last time you bought a bagel and a coffee from starbucks (and included the cheese and marmalade - and the knife buster) and which of you do thos selfless act regularly to embetter the life and enrich the faith of humanity for a down and out?

How many of those in his town, his bus? his family? No? Then

When I first heard this story I thought it might have been my little brother because he drives for Winnipeg Transit, then I realized it's not his route, and he probably wouldn't give up his shoes.

But it's still pretty amazing, especially when you consider alot of the crap the bus drivers deal with here.
Wouldn't it be great to heal the world, with only a song?

"Chubby cheeked angels" Ha! That was not a "feeble gesture" on the part of the bus driver - I'm thinking he doesn't make too much money and it was a wonderful thing to do! You have no idea what good deeds people here on this thread do - perhaps just don't need to tell you about it. Hope you are doing YOUR best to make life easier for those less fortunate.
