Everyone seemed friendly

I used to drive university bus, which is not a job I would propose for anyone who does not have a lot of patience.  As a teacher, the first thing they tell you is to never turn your back on a room full of students. As a bus driver, you consistently have your back to a bus full of students.  It’s not just twenty children, however seventy-two, or as much as eighty-several if you have a single of the newest extended buses. The worst thing about driving a university bus, is the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan on those things.  It can very tepid while in the summer, in our area. Our university buses did not have air conditioner. Both of us had a heating unit that would burn your legs if you didn’t keep it turned down. The heating seldom did anything for the youngsters in the back of the bus.  Summer however, has everyone complaining. It gets so tepid in the front of the bus that you can barely breathe. The fans just blow the heat around. Our bus owner had planned on getting a couple busses with air conditioner, just for those of us who took youngsters to university all year round.  Since I drove for special needs, I felt it was a necessity, but he kept putting off the purchase. Finally some of the parents got on the bandwagon and demanded bussing with air conditioner for their children. Unfortunately, the air conditioned bus didn’t get bought until the year I retired. I would have prefer to be able to drive a bus that had air conditioner.  Somebody else will be benefiting from my complaints.
