A Minibus Driver who says "You are welcome (唔駛唔該)"
As soon as the minibus crossed Chatham Road, one of the passengers requested to get off at the next stop, “唔該前面有落 (Please, I wish to get off at the next stop.)”. The driver responded with “唔駛唔該 (You are welcome.)”. I was so shocked that I almost fell off my seat - I have never had such a careful and courteous driver on a minibus.
When I told this story at the dinner table, my wife confirmed that she had also had a similar experience recently, on the same route. So this driver was not just a ghost, that I did not just dream this up.
