OOHHH Looord Just adverted A catastrophe

Oh man heart still beating fast,

How I park my bus the last 15 feet goes inside 2 very tight fences , left side which has emergency door sits right against fence with neighbors,I just started bus to pull out & while exiting waiting for air to build up must have hit air switch for door on way out, come walking back & door is only about 3 in from being closed so i hit it and push as hard as i can & was able to barely squeeze thru door before it closed.

I figure if I hadn't made it then I would have had to knock down fence to get to Edoor or break windows to get in,Plus with at least 50gal of fuel left in tank this thing probably would have idled for at least a month.

Of course - and the fact that you have a bus, figured out parking, can maneuver it, and dealt with a tough situation puts you WAY ahead of me! So the video doesn't apply. But the hatch comment and response reminded me of it and I thought someone might be amused.

And apologies to the blondes out there: I recognize that that brains extend fully as much to blondes as any other group. And that the legendary 'blonde' behavior spans all genders and hair colors (and to grey and balding as well - I don't want to talk about it).
