I don't allow my child to ride the bus, that's probably a bit ridiculous but I am just not comfortable with it.
I can remember at least five of my bus drivers being fired.
One of our bus drivers was stopping by the local burger joint after school and letting the kids get off the bus and order food. (my mom did NOT believe us about that until they got fired, apparently it was a bit TOO unbelievable
One of our bus drivers smoked a lot of pot. That is where I learned "what pot smells like"
One of our bus drivers liked to speed, a LOT he also let all the kids sit on the back of the seats.
Another let the kids smoke on the bus "as long as they threw away their butts"
The last one just had too many tickets, he didn't let everyone sit on the backs of the seats.
My sisters and I were always getting picked on. The boys used to boing my curls
Or we would get in fights because someone was picking on one of our little sisters. It was a mess.
If I had multiple kids in school I would probably let them ride but I am just not comfortable with it just being her.
Our bus driver when we first started riding was awesome and my mom really liked her but then she moved and started on a different route and we had a string of people who should NOT have been driving a bus. We finally got another mom and things were nice and calm again.
