Homie bus driver? (general discussion)

Half drunk, weaving erratically, flipped off the kids and parked the bus. Left them stranded.


Yeah, I could see this after only 2 weeks on the job.

A friend of mine is one of the owning partners in one of the larger bus services in this county. They provide school buses to multiple school districts. They have hundreds of buses on the road every day. They are also chronically short of drivers.

A couple weeks after I retired, I ran into him at the local Diner one morning. He knows I have a CDL and wanted me to stop by and sign up to drive a school bus.

My unhesitating answer was "Not on your life!". I don't have the temperament for that.

If today's kids are anything like we were on school buses when I was a kid, I wouldn't last through the first morning run.

I'd bet they're much worse.

I rode a school bus every school day from 1959 to 1968.

The Bus Driver was God. When He/She barked, you straightened your shit out or you got kicked off the bus and explained to Mom and Dad why they had to drive you to school. In one case I remember specifically, a miscreant was forcibly removed.

I don't remember EVER hearing about legal action as a result. More likely, the miscreant fared MUCH worse at home. I know I would have.

No way in hell I'd last past the first morning run.

Hah! We ARE taking our country back. Suck it, Liberal Commies!

My folks knew our bus driver O/O all her life. He was a great guy but built like Godzilla.

My mother's standing order to him was "treat him like one of your own." If he needs his ass smacked, smack it.

He wasn't above tossing kids off the bus in a safe location,,,,, including his own son.
