Oh this news came in my news feed on my Facebook from Yahoo yesterday. I feel really terrible seeing this. Those kids have no manners, and are so immature! Children nowadays have no respect for the elderly. When we get get old I wonder what is going to happen to us...?

This example of pranking the school bus monitor is the norm now, especially middle schoolers who are in transition towards authority figures. Both the driver and the monitor have to take steps toward intimidation and control immediately once assigned a busload of 44-66 kids. Usually 85% of those kids are great kids but there will be a handful that should be lined up against a wall and shot but with today's laws such behavior is verboten (and it's a waste of a good resource: those bullets are better suited for knockin' down deer). Kids are manipulative and opportunistic. Given the chance to misbehave with no immediate consequence for the few more are emboldened to act up or act out .

The 4 days I mistakenly allowed myself to endure driving a large school bus is as much sado-masochism as I care to experience for my lifetime. By day 2 I had to park the bus en route for the 3rd time for a timeout. Between 2 drama queens who sat in the back and 2 fat kids seated in the middle, one accusing the other of being called a racial slur while the instigator mouthed the N-word often.....frankly, thoughts of prison designed buses (bars on windows, barred partitions 4' behind driver's seat separating front of vehicle from the human cargo, electric cattle prods) danced around freely in my subconscious often.

My route crossed the BNSF tracks each direction. Every day several coal trains would sail by hauling energy from the Wyoming fields to GA. Power somewhere down south. By Day 3 I was fantasizing about both a newspaper headline and a 30-sec TV news short exclaiming great life loss from a train crossing--school bus accident where survivors were few, magically the driver and all the well-behaved kids.

On day 5, after giving sufficient notification to the higher-ups, I left K1-12 and went back to shuttling college kids around campus. Quieter, saner. Amazing what a few years' maturation can accomplish. Go, Bears!


Normally I only quote from people to which my response directly addresses. But this is crazy!

The only time I rode a bus was during my youth at a Catholic school for elementary and middle school students. I'm pretty sure that none of us thought too highly of our bus driver (we didn't actually have, or need monitors, but still), we would never dare to stoop so low as to something like this. It's horrible.

I find it odd that a lot of people say spanking is a poor choice of punishment. But it sure worked for me, And I'm pretty sure it worked when our parents were children as well. I'm not "emotionally or physically" scared by that punishment, as a lot of "groups" claim. To be honest, it works like a charm. I've gotten the spankings, the hand slapping, the belt; you name it, I probably deserved it too and that's what I think.

I dont think the next generation would be any different. it just seems as time flys, society stoops on the lowest level possible. People can't coexist with each other anymore, there always have to be some kind of drama going on.
