After a female student in Wuhan took to Weibo to declare her love for a local bus driver and ask for netizens’ help in tracking him down, Wuhan Bus Group not only replied, but encouraged her, even providing a list of possible bus routes to find him on. The company only asked that she not distract the driver while he’s working.
While most people with a crush on a bus driver would probably just gaze wistfully at bus stops thinking of what could have been, this particular girl was more proactive. She sent out a cheeky plea to the bus company’s official Weibo. On June 2 she posted, “What do I do if I’ve fallen in love with a driver from your company? Can you help me find him?”
The next morning, Wuhan Bus Group did in fact send her a reply, encouraging her to follow her heart and wishing her the best of luck.
“First of all, congratulations on finding love. You may meet him at the start of the bus route, but please don’t interrupt his driving, so as to ensure the safety of all passengers on the bus.”
And it gets better. An hour later, after the conversation had gone insanely viral, she received another blessing from the group, “If the driver is single, go forth and chase after him; on the other hand, if he is married or already has his eyes set on someone, then do your best to keep your feelings hidden.”
The woman managing the Wuhan Bus Group’s Weibo account said that she was impressed by the girl’s assertiveness, and wanted to help out especially since bus drivers often are not well-regarded by society. Not to mention that their jobs are insanely stressful, considering the crazy knife-wielding thieves, and angry yelling from laowais that they have to endure.
The bus group later revealed some more critical information to aid the girl in her quest, including relationship profiles of potential bus drivers as well as their respective bus routes.
Now that‘s customer service.
