Twice in two weeks

In 1977 I went to Blackpool uk on a coach trip, I missed the coach back and didn't have enough money for a room, so I found a bus shelter and slept in that. During the night I woke up as i heard someone moving near me. It was another guy who was asleep on the next bench to me, he awoke as I moved and I realised I knew him from my home town 70 miles away, he went to the same school as me in Halifax uk. Turned out that he had missed his last train home to Halifax uk I hadn't seen him for about 3 years since I left school, we talked a bit and next morning, we went home on the train. Two weeks later I went to a football match in Portsmouth, 250 Mile's from where I lived on my own by train. I missed my last connection train back to Halifax, from Bradford, so decided to walk back the 8 miles as the taxis were all booked up for hours. About 3 miles in on the way home I walked past a man who was walking slowly and looked as I passed him, it was the same guy(Trevor) who was in the bus shelter sleeping in blackpool a couple of weeks before, the guy i knew from school! We could not believe seeing each other again in the middle of the night 70 miles from where we last met in the middle of a quiet road back to Halifax. He had also missed his last bus back to Halifax. Even though we went to the same school and lived in the same small town, i never saw him again in the following 40 plus years. I tried looking him up last year and found out he had died unfortunately
