Hey I would rather that, then the driver do something really crazy Much safer than having an irate bus driver! One time my school bus driver was pissed off and turned around and took us back to school, it didn’t make the news AND she almost drove us off a cliff turning around in a very unsafe area on also with a blind turn.

br020201 Driver's explanation? A ghetto hot mess Some kids are terrible. I wouldn't want to drive them around. “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalms 139:14 KJV “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” Psalms 37:23 KJV

If you can’t whip them don’t take them is my rule lol This is what you get when you use private companies to do the job. School bus drivers should be working for the school district where they can be vetted and fired when necessary. Bad for everyone. The kids, the bus attendant, the driver who I’m sure will never, (or, should never,) have this job again. The flip side is that the bus driver knew her limits. She didn’t angrily lash out at a child. Maybe this was the safest avenue available. Think about it.

I'd do the same with those lil bastards
