Either way, it's all gone now!
the Schools do it.. the busses usually get parked ina fenced, gated area so they dont worry about intruders.. so the drivers dont close the doors all the way when they go home at night.. or more often the door is left all the way open when they park at lunch in a shopping center parking lot..or their bus is at home between runs..
a driver in my neightborhood drives for a summer route.. and takes her bus home between runs.. leaves it sit in front of the house door wide open (she says to keep it cool because only one of the air conditioners work).. we get pop up midday storms all the time and rain goes right in that door....
so those floors get wet from the day the bus is brand new..
