No story here but a fun pic none the less!




Looks like the neighbor kid brought his Hotwheels school bus while everyone else has Tonka trucks!

Funny, that Osceola incident happened not long after I passed that location. I should see the mud tracks later today. They don't pay the drivers enough to stay and put up with everything. Almost all the district vehicles have signs showing they need bus drivers.

How much do they get paid and why is it such a bad job? Granted driving a truck that could carry four of the buses that is behind it(in the pic) without breaking a sweat has its hazards.

Stressful job and they pay about what convenience store workers make out where you live.

Here you get payed $68 a day for anywhere from 1.5 to 4 hrs of work.

All medical, prescriptions, eye glasses, dental, ect, are payed for.
