Seagull decided to sleep in this morning?
Spud – your’e hip…us 4th graders don’t want to sit in the back, we want to drive the DANG !# bus.
I am a little confused… I understood that in the US, in the mid 1900s, black passengers HAD to sit at the back of buses, but today it’s a privilege for fourth formers?
Silly Spud, the fabric of society was disproved by Margaret Thatcher in 1987.
The fabric of society has always been a bit patchy.
This could get interesting. I hope this “adventure” continues through the week.
May that fabric rot away
Nice thing about the back of the bus is that people can’t throw things at the back of your head. Or so I’m told…
A fuss on the bus. Mornin’ Spud.
Why temp fate……
The upperclassmen WANTED to be segregated from the riffraff.
Eh, the fabrics of society tend to be overrated anyway.
Even the seagull, conspicuously absent, knows better. He doesn’t want to get beat up either, Spud.
Driving a public school bus in the Denver Colorado Metro area for the past 15 years has taught me that there are indeed stratification’s to the bus seating. If there is room to spread out, the front few rows are usually the nicer chatty kids, the middle are the kids who just want to get from point “A” to point “B” and the back third are, all too often, the “future parolees”. It became less and less a surprise when I spoke to the school administrators about a problem kid, they knew them from their first name and I didn’t need to go much further describing them. And now with multiple cameras and digital video streaming to cloud storage, proving accusations of behavior has become much easier. Police State? Maybe, but I like it.
I rode the bus in elementary school. I was the last stop in the morning. The seats fit about two and a half kids. So I always got to do the one cheek seat clinch to school.
