go WAY too fast through my neighborhood.
I was almost taken out by 2 buses...on my own street, this morning. See, every morning, I rush to get out of my house by 6:25 am. Any later, and I’m not late for work, but I end up stopping 5 bazillion times behind the school bus as they stop at EVERY house where a kid lives. Maybe this is a slight exaggeration, but they stop at least 6 times in the quarter mile from my house to the main road.
I made it out in time this morning, but I had to dodge one bus that came flying around the curve a few houses down from mine, and then I dodged another bus that cut the corner going Mach 1 to turn onto my street. And I’m supposed to put my kid on the bus in 5 years?? I think not!
And this may make me sound old...but when I rode the bus to school, it picked up in one place in our entire neighborhood of about 1000 houses. I had to walk like 4 blocks to the bus stop. And now, they drop off and pick up each kid in front of his house!!! C’mon, they can walk one block to the end of our neighborhood, can’t they???
