Commuter Anja Böhm pays the price of a ticket for a man on the SBB intercity train – triggering an amazing chain reaction.
in short needed
- A passenger cannot identify himself on the train journey to Basel and does not have a ticket.
- Commuter Anja Bohm doesn’t hesitate and charges for them.
- Other travelers are enthusiastic and help generously with financing.
Anja Bohm provided an unforgettable, “magical” moment on the SBB InterCity train from Zurich to Basel. How to do this: No other passenger can show his/her ticket or his/her ID to the conductor. There is also a problem with communication.
“During the exchange of words, the two young men remained friendly, calm and friendly.” This is how the 38-year-old describes the situation. Nevertheless, the conductor must have indicated to the man that he must now call the police.
Bohm comes into play at this point. She offers to let the employee bear the cost of the ticket.
Would you buy a ticket for a stranger on the train?
The conductor asks the first man for his approval – “at eye level”. It was the “first magical moment” for the woman from Basel. The traveler accepts the offer and thanks Bohm.
Experience at SBB Intercity: “Wonderful, Powerful, Tremendous”
She pays the bill and can hardly believe what will happen next: “While I was paying, the person sitting next to me twitched half of the ticket price because she wanted to contribute.”
The conductor is also surprised and gives Bohm two train vouchers. Bohm gives one of the vouchers to his seat neighbor.
Other travelers didn’t let the helpfulness cool off. You say thank you. “A woman’s eyes are wet,” Bohm says.
Even on the way out, Bohm is further encouraged: he receives twenty francs from a young woman. Baum shared the story, which took place on the LinkedIn Business Network, on July 16. There too, he received a lot of praise from other users for his smooth action.
“Great experience and well done, Anja Bohm!” One commented. One user wrote, “This is the most touching and meaningful post for me in a long time.”
Bohm himself sees the experience as: “wonderful, powerful and overwhelming.” He also benefits financially from the campaign in SBB Intercity: “The strangest thing is that I got more money than the ticket price.”
