I am sure I mentioned I have a new part time job.  I have obtained my CDL and all the necessary endorsements to be a school bus driver.

Unfortunately they had people transfer in so they got routes and a couple of aides decided they were goi g to drive.  That means I am a sub.

Anyway a note on the board last week stated drivers had to be there 20 minutes before their route start time.  Nothing about subs.

Tuesday, September 2 I get a call.  Where
are you?  

Me: At home
Work:  Didn't you read the board?  
Me:  Yep all drivers are to report 20 minutes early before their route start time.  I'm a sub I don't have a start time.
Work: Which would explain why no subs showed up today.   (Accompanied by maniacal laughing on the other end of the line) 
Work:  Be here at 2:00

All I could think of is leave it to me to miss the first day of work!

I think I was punished the next day I had to be there at 5:30 am.  I then ended up subing for a route all week long. 

Sorry about the lack of pics.  I am posting from my phone.  I loaned my computer to the youngest daughter to apply to college and for some loans and grants.  I am thrilled that she is finally going to go back to school even though she has a full plate with the four kids. 


  1. Sounds like you will be a very busy substitute bus driver! Enjoy the weekend!

  2. They sound a little unorganized... definitely not your fault! Congrats to your daughter on applying to college! That is a big step!

  3. isnt it funny when organizations dont proofread memos and then wonder why the outcome isnt what they expected. thanks for the chuckle. hope the rest of your week went well.

  4. Oh too funny!!! You have certainly signed on for a tough job - I'm sending angels to go with you!!!

  5. Maniacal laughter? Someone was having a stressful day! Glad you got some work time in. Good for your daughter!

  6. I can't even imagine trying to coordinate all those buses, but you'd think they'd be a little more specific. At least you weren't the only one who didn't show up! Drive safe!


Thanks for dropping in to visit.
