All-Star Worcester Parents Lay Siege To School Bus, Beat Up Bus Driver, Then Write Magnificent Things On Facebook

ramblinann:

Because I have been slacking off again and not writing here I have chosen to cheat and reblog something.
As some of you know I drive a school bus and have had some very scary things happen during the last 18 years. If I had been the driver in this incident, I don’t think there is anything that could make me get back in a bus and drive again.
Turtleboysports I don’t know who you are, but you show some wonderful examples of the cesspool Worcester has become. I was born there, as was most of my family. My parents moved us out way back in the 70’s when I was a kid. In 2000 my husband, two sons, and I had to move not far from where this incident took place. In 2004 we packed up and got the hell out of Dodge. You know it’s time to leave when the sound of drive by shootings doesn’t bother you.

As for driving the bus, it gets harder and harder each year to go back. the kids will drive you crazy, but it’s the parents that scare the beJesus out of me.

If you’ve been on the internet today then you’ve probably heard about the broo-ha-ha involving some angry parents, five year old kids, and a school bus driver. The following video is so Worcester it hurts:

This is why Margee Pesikov hates us. This is why Worcester can’t have nice things.

First of all, I just wanna say that anyone who holds their iPhone vertically while taping something is a scourge on society. Please, for the love of God, HOLD YOUR PHONE HORIZONTALLY WHILE TAPING VIDEO!!! This video could’ve been a million times better if it could actually take up my whole computer screen. There was just so much fantastic Worcester chaos going on that I wanted to soak it all up.

Anyway, when I first saw this video I didn’t really know how to feel. I was leaning towards…

So Maybe It Is STRESS!

A few weeks ago I went to the doctor because I hurt all over.  (except for the area of my left shoulder to my neck which was numb.)  I never did see the doctor, I saw a nurse practitioner who told me it was all stress.  B.S. I claimed, I was not under any stress at the time.  I agreed to see an osteopathic doctor for therapy just to see if it helped.  I can’t tell you yet because I couldn’t even get an appointment until the 11th, but I am hoping it does something.

The closer I get to return to work day the worse I feel.  Seriously!

I have already started losing sleep and as much as I would love to pass the blame onto my husband who has been up during the middle of the night again, I can’t.  Even when the house is dark and quiet my brain is going a mile a minute.  I can’t sleep because I just don’t want to go back there.

Every summer I always feel a little bit of not wanting to return to work. After all it’s still warm and sunny at the end of August. There are still plenty of days left to enjoy the outdoors.  Who wants to be in bed before dark and stuck in a hot bus during the day? Certainly not me, but the reality of a full paycheck vs unemployment usually makes up for the sadness.  It’s not this time.  In fact it’s not even giving up the beautiful warm days that is bothering me.  It’s the job, the restrictions, the new rules and regulations, and the feeling of being under a microscope that is bothering me.  I feel like people with ankle bracelets have fewer restrictions than I do.  That’s a bit of a stretch, but you catch my drift.

Massachusetts has implemented the fingerprinting this year.  All teachers, school staff, school bus drivers, and everyone who works with children need to provide their fingerprints to supposedly Homeland Security.  If I believed Homeland Security knew what they were doing I would feel a little more comfortable.  If they were going to an agency whose job was to protect children, and THEY knew what they were doing, I would feel more comfortable, but everyone seems to have a different answer as to who is getting our fingerprints and who will have access to them.  We have no say in any of this.  Once we hand our prints over we have no say in who actually has access to them in the future. That just does not sit right with me.  My gut is telling me this is not a good thing.  Yet there is no way around it if I go back to driving a school bus.

I am working towards something else for the future and what was going to be today’s post, Transitions, will explain where I’m headed.  For now though it is all about volunteering and that won’t pay the bills.  If only a paying opportunity, that allowed me to work toward my goal, would fall out of the sky I would be ever so grateful.  It does seem that the job I loved so much in the past is making me sick in the present. It is sure to kill me in the future.

Nonni

Nonni; that is my favorite word.

“Nonni what happen?
“Ut oh Nonni”
“Nonni p it buher”
“Nonni peese”
“Nonni I chew”

I was lucky enough to baby sit Nolan on Tuesday and Taylah today. Just love em love em love em. Of course I think they are the two cutest little ones running around and why wouldn’t I? they are and they are my grand babies.

I never thought I could love any kids as much as my own, but when it comes to grand kids there is no doubt. I do. I could love on them, and hug them, and give kisses all day.

My other grand kids yes as of today I have more than one other.   Cameron is 8.  He is past the cuddle me age most of the time.  I do ALWAYS get a big hug and kiss from the big boy of the bunch.  Lilly was just born today.  Shhhh they haven’t officially made the Facebook announcement but since only two people who read this know me on Facebook it is ok. They won’t spill the beans. Lilly came a couple of weeks early.  Even though she is a peanut at only 4 lbs 11 oz I heard she is able to stay in the room with mom and dad instead of being sent to NICU which is so nice.  I did get to see a picture and she is a cutie of course.

Now just waiting on the arrival of another little boy on or around August 8.  Nolan is soon to be a big brother.  He runs around the house pointing to everything saying “baby, baby” but not sure how he is going to react to a little one stealing some of his limelight, but I’ll just have to love on him even more.

These kind of weeks make my life so rich.
