Okay, now I'm really ticked!! That stupid bus driver has aggravated me for the last time. Those of you that have been at my house know how long our driveway is. For those that haven't, it's about 1/4 mile long. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk down there, depending on how fast I can get the kid moving, etc. etc. There is a creek that crosses the driveway almost to the road, maybe 50-75 feet from the road. The creek is, of course, lined with trees, plus the land on the north side is owned by the government, and they only mow it once or twice a year at most, so the grass is pretty high. That stupid bus driver does not even bother to slow down if we are not practically standing in the road where he can see us. Today, Cris and I were on the road side of the creek in the driveway when we heard the bus coming. If that stupid jerk would just slow down and turn his head a bit, he would have seen us. This has happened at least 4 times so far this year. On top of this the bus was 10 minutes early at least. He is supposed to come through around 6:45 - 6:50. It was 6:45 when we got back to the house, after he zoomed right past us. And I just realized today was picture day, and I don't know when the make up day is. So I most likely won't have pictures to send with Christmas cards this year. What ever happened to the bus drivers that would stop and honk their horns? Or at least slow down and see if you are coming?? I could understand if we were all the way at the house, but last winter we were once, and he did stop. I just don't get what this guy's problem is, he is such a jerk! ETA: My son missed the whole day because our vehicle is broke down. Luckily he is only in preschool, so his attendance doesn't count.
