    Angry me vs. school bus!?!?!?!

    Here is the deal.

    I was driving home for the day and it was around 4:00 and in front of me I noticed a school bus and I drive the road quite often so I have been stuck behind the bus and I had to go though each and every one of it's stops, but I decided I dint need that today so it was a 4 lane road and so I perceded to pass him on the left side. I was doing about 46 in a 40 and right as I get next to him he floors it I hear his engine just blair and he starts pulling. I start thinking "this dude is a idiot we are doing 52 in a 40 and I am racing a school bus"!!. We have gone a block like this and were are doing 15 over and he has kids on the bus !!So I dropped it to 3rd and walked him BAD. This just proves how idoitotic people can be. ( But I did think it was pretty funny that a school bus raced me). I owe it to him, he wins the idoit of the week award!

    In a year or two, my kid may be on a school bus. Please refrain from racing her!

    I'd like to keep her around for a while...

    man, out here in IL. passing a school bus when it has its stop light thing on and is at stops is a huge, huge fine. I cant believe he would have jepordized kids like that. You should have just ran by him right away instead of pacing him for a block.

    I would have gotten his plate numbers and reported it. He would have been more than likely put on probation or terminated. schools dont mess around with that crap.
