Another person talks to me on the bus

It happened again today.  Previously, I had mentioned a girl staring at me intently on the bus had caused me to bark at her.  On reflection, I realized that she thought I was going to the train station and that I was about to miss my stop.  This time, a gentleman asked if I knew that the train station was "over there".  Yes, I said.  And he then asked if I was familiar with the city.  I answered in the affirmative.  He then asked me how long I had lived in the city.  I told him five years.  I found he lived not too far from me and got his phone number.  Maybe I will have a friend in the area who can answer me questions I have about it.

A much better ending to an encounter.
