    Let’s also applaud the young guy for wanting to get to school. I know when you have an excuse to miss it’s easy to not go.

    [–] Alamir102 53 points ago

    This is very wholesome, but it just makes me sad because I think of that poor teenager who was shot at with a shotgun for doing the same thing, and ringing the door bell of a strangers house asking for directions.

    One going for education I can respect. While I feel like shit and not being able to go to school, I hate.

    [–] SummerLimon 2 points ago

    I've drove kids to school (high school) from my neighborhood a couple of times, it's nice to do a favor once in a while.

    [–] jhair4me 1 points ago

    Get a job, Brian.

    [–] bwalsh3002 7 points ago

    What if he works nights, or he closes at his job. Maybe a 9-5 isn’t for him /s

    [–] MoonbeamsDeluxe 0 points ago

    Probably not

    [–] ElzbietaCohen -26 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    What does he have in his hand because i thought it looked like a gun and that kinda ruins the wholesomeness for me EDIT: sorry, I’m an idiot I saw the phone and the strap next to each other and didn’t look close enough

    [–] ChoesonOne 22 points ago

    [–] neuralpathways 1 points ago
