What is wrong with people???
I got home this afternoon and I13 nonchalantly informed me that, not only did several trees get blown over at the junior high today because of the high winds, but that he was nearly hit by a car as he got off the bus this afternoon. Now, I was a bit puzzled at first. The bus drops him off at the end of our driveway, on this side of the road. Apparently, this person was either so impatient or so distracted that they couldn't stop for a stopped school bus, lights flashing and the doors open. This driver drove around the school bus ON THE SHOULDER barely missing the doors. Thank every God out there and all the lucky stars and everything else I can think of that I13 was still on the bus steps. He said he could have stuck out his foot and kicked the car door as it went by.
It terrifies me what could have been if he had been just a few steps further.
Fortunately, he says that his bus driver was able to get the license number of the car. I hope that driver PAYS! I'm ANGRY that some people are so careless and/or thoughtless to take the lives of other peoples children into their hands. GRRRRR.
End of rant. We will now resume regular programming.
