Bus Driver

I saw a story from Annomama on Facebook about a bus driver. A young boy and his  brother took the bus everyday to school. The bus driver bullied the young boy as he always was reading a book. He would make fun of him until his brother caught him and told him to stop. The brother’s friends also had the young boy’s back and basically protected him. However, once the older boys moved on to middle school or junior high, the bus driver started right back on name calling and insulting the young boy. He called a bookworm, nerd, friendless and a few other choice names. The young boy tried to escape from him but he was unkind to him every single day. He would exit the bus just waiting to cry.  Finally, he thought about an appropriate response and once he arrived at one he knew what he had to say. The next day when the bus driver began bullying him, he said to the boy, “Why do you have your face in a book all the time?” The boy’s response was priceless. He said, “Because I do not want to end up like you as a bus driver.” Everyone who saw the article loved it.  There are good and bad drivers.  They carry the responsibility of our children yet they do not seem to care.  It’s just a job with pay to many of them. People should take their positions more seriously.  If you are in a responsible position, you should live up to it.  I have known many bus drivers who have been nice and others who were horribly rude even as an adult.  In any job you always have obligations. For example, I have to verify every piece of information before doing a document.  Even after verification with the attorney people change their minds.  They also take advantage and make changes long after the completion of the documents.  If they are informed that they need to pay, they claim they were not the changes they requested.  Like anything in life, there is always the good and the bad just like that initial bus driver, don’t you agree?
