  1. The wheels on the bus says:

    Hope we don’t have to call the regiment out. If that fails we can use the bus drivers with all the cancellations

      But yet you find time to share your personal vendeta of how you feel about bus drivers, same attitude why Trump was’nt invited to attend Mcaines funeral.
