4-Year-Old Girl Boards A Bus at 3AM With One Thought In Mind – And It Wasn’t Running Away

Just the thought of a 4-year-old walking around in the middle[1] of the night ANYWHERE, let alone Philadelphia, makes me shudder. Thank goodness there are still good people in the world who made sure Annabelle was safe during her little adventure. I can assure you her parents will watch her like a hawk after this.

From The Blaze[3]:

In the wee hours of the morning, Philadelphia bus drivers pick up all sorts of characters.

But around 3 a.m. Friday, driver Harlan Jenifer surely got the shock of his shift.

A man flagged down Jenifer, telling him he found a little girl — decked out in a purple coat and snow boots — all by herself. Surveillance video shows the girl, named Annabelle, boarding the bus.

“Got to be kidding me! At this time, at 3 o’clock (in) the morning,” Jenifer told WPVI-TV[4]. “She’s a small little thing. It kind of just shocked me.”

While Jenifer called police, bus passengers comforted Annabelle, the station said.

And her reason for venturing out so late alone?

“‘All I want is a slushie,’” Jenifer recalled. “That’s all she said!”

Annabelle was back with her parents within an hour; WPVI reported that they’ve since figured out a new door-locking system.

But later on Friday, it seemed Annabelle’s slushie craving remained unfulfilled.

“Mom, can you take me to Wawa and get me a slushie?” she asked her mother, Jaclyn Mager, while she talked to WPVI.

“I will take you to Wawa and get you a slushie,” Mager replied, the station noted. “But listen, promise me next time you’ll wait for me, okay?”

“Yeah,” Annabelle answered — sealing it with a big hug, WPVI added.

I can assure you my mother would not have been quite that loving if I had been found on a bus at 3 in the morning. In fact, I’m pretty sure that as soon as the cameras left, she would have spanked me. Of course, at 4 I knew better than to leave the house without parental permission. A little discipline goes a long way, ladies and gents.
