LUXEMBOURG-VILLE — Dozens of onlookers at the Park & Ride Bouillon were treated to an unexpected delight on Tuesday morning when a woman wearing high heels sprinted to catch a bus.
The spectacle began when the doors of a no. 5 bus began to close, and the 30-something, dressed in a light grey business suit, suddenly dashed toward it.
Clutching a cup of coffee from Fisher and toting a fashionable purse, the woman raised her arms in a desperate yet ultimately unsuccessful attempt to get the driver to wait.
Needless to say, witnesses were thrilled, with one man saying that the show offered him a much-needed boost.
“I was feeling a bit down, overworked and depressed to be honest,” he said. “But when I saw that woman wobble down the sidewalk at great speed, knowing the bus would depart the moment she arrived, I suddenly felt better.”
Another witness recounted her joy at seeing the lid of the woman’s cup fly off, with hot coffee splashing on her white blouse.
“Once I saw that, I knew I’d be able to get through the day with a smile,” the witness said. “All I’d need to do is think of the look on her face, and I’d feel cheerful in a second.”
“My only fear was that someone would take pity on the woman and bang on the bus door to make the driver wait, or offer a tissue so the woman could clean her blouse, but thankfully no one did.”
