I think one of the greatest things about being a school bus driver is working alongside with schools. That means being on their schedule. This includes you not having to work weekends, and even better, holidays.
I was covering a shift in the afternoon one day. I had my two back seat drivers with me and we were on our way to drop our last student off at their stop.
5 minutes before I get there I hear dispatch chirp over the radio that they needed someone to cover a charter immediately. After a few minutes of silence they chirped again, repeating the message. Since I was going to be done soon, I figured since nobody was taking it, I’ll do it.
Everyone knows how expensive Daycare can be. To be honest, if I brought my two boys to Daycare, I would basically be going to work just to pay for Daycare. That doesn’t make any sense.
I am lucky enough to have a job that I can bring my kids with me to work. Yes! I don’t have to pay for Daycare! This takes away a huge burden on our budget. I also don’t have to worry about strangers watching my kids, or drive time to daycare that takes time out of my day.
