School Busses

The bus. My arch nemesis. The yellow, long, evil things that some of us have to ride to and from school... and it's torture! When I was young, I used to look forward to riding the bus, I even used to think the ugly (always dirty) windows were made of sugar candy. But I was young and naive then.

For those of you who have never ridden a bus, you're probably wondering, "Wow! What does she have against busses?" Well, I have just about everything against busses. Number one, they smell. They smell like dirty, yucky, sweaty teens. I know with that I just about convinced half of you non-bus-kids that the bus is horrible, and I plan to convince the rest.

Number two: The sun is practically set by the time we leave the school. Now I know the days keep getting shorter, but YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDIN' ME BUS PEOPLE!

Number three. You are going to need some context for this one, so I'm going to tell you the last half of my day. 2:45, 7th period starts. The last class of the day. 7th period ends at 3:35, and school is officially done for the day. Except... if your riding the bus, because when school gets out, you have to wait 40 minutes (for you math kids that's 4:15pm) and the bus only then shows up at school. I don't get home til 5:00!

Have I convinced you yet. I've convinced myself (does that really count...). Well it's Thanksgiving tomorrow so I'm going to be thankful. Thank you bus drivers for taking me home (even if it takes forever)! Have a GREAT rest of your week!



  1. I had to ride a bus all my school years,yuck! Getting home at five is uncalled for.
