Worst Things About The School Bus
The Top Ten
And this is the real reason why I bike ride to school. - CrownED
This was in Elementary School since 4th grade I had a special 13 year old from another classroom he was in 7th Grade he hit a teacher aide in the head with his fist closed he smashed her head like an exploding bomb he had down syndrome it was after school I was in the bus and the driver was there some students arriving on the bus I saw that what he did so than he got in trouble she told his mom. Then he hit my friend in the head he was moving his hands like an autistic person he pushed him very hard from the head felt down he said OH MY GOD And the this obese lady walks in the bus like a monster! That was the worst bullying incident that I have ever experienced in all my years of school Since 2011 it was the worst year in the whole planet! - Lordvader3500
There was this jerk who looks 14 years old even though he was in 4th grade when I was in 1st grade which was when he started to bully me. It went on until 5th grade which I guess he started driving. He made my life a literal hell. I hated the bus because of him. The guy let everyone sit in the back, even little kids and he wouldn't let me sit in the back. He let all my friends sit in the back and called me horrible names and convinced my friends to bully me. I hate him so much! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
I'm 14 years old so I can scare him off for you though I'm quite short - AlphaQ
What's worse is when the teachers put extra students who are not assigned that route on the bus, making everyone get home way later.
It’s takes me an hour to go and come from school.
My stop used to be the second toast stop in elementary/middle school. Sometimes it was the VERY LAST stop.
My primary school bus sucked on my bus there was a after school program. Which they had to get out on most there were little kids but there so annoying sometimes the counsellors don't come out. Another bus top we have is on a busy road and we had to wait for this kid every time for her mom to pick her up. Once we had to wait at least 30 minutes for her.
We had a sub one day and she pulled over because the bus was too loud. She screamed at us to shut up or we will be on the bus for eternity. The kids screamed louder and started crying. She called them dumb cry babies and that if they would shut up we could leave. Then she a few minutes later after no one quieted down cranked the radio up. Eventually the supervisor, principal, and SROs showed up. They yelled at everyone then it got worse when parents showed up and demanding their children be off the bus. The bus driver called one of the ladies drunk and she tried to enter the bus. She wad tackled to the ground by the SROs. Then she was arrested. They explained to the parents that they could not let anyone off due to security reasons. Eventually all the supervisors, principals, policemen, the driver, and even a few parents got everyone to quite down. The supervisor and principal stayed on the bus and left the parents in the dust. Most kids ended up going back to school because their ...more
We have had this sub driver a few times and she for some reason was fond of me. After she was gone at least a quarter of everyone who was on the bus would be gone the next day because they would get bus suspensions. She would ask nice then get more annoyed until she would be ranting and raving. She would say "SHUT THE HELL UP, AND SIT THE HELL DOWN"! and "I WAS NOT TALKING TO YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS OR YOU WILL BE IN THE SAME SITUATION"! She would call people tough guys, white knights, noisy, nut heads, and even asked people if they were drunk or "tweaking out". If people where really annoying her she would pull over and yell at us and when people would be yelling "AHH WE WANT TO GET HOME" she would say stuff like "WE WILL SIT HERE ALL DAY IF YOU DON'T SHUT UP AND BEHAVE". She would not let people listen to music out loud or she would turn her country up VERY loud and even sometimes would dance. She make wrong turns and pass stops ...more
Most of the bus drivers I get are sexist. Most of the friends I have on the bus are boys, but girls have to sit on the right and boys on the left. He even does that with siblings! The girls like me have better seats, too, so the boys feel angry that they don't get respect. Whenever the bus driver let's us off, if she's a woman then she says, "GIRLS! GET YOUR BUTTS OFF OF MY BUS AND BE SNAPPY! BOYS, YOU STAY 'CAUSE THE GIRLS GET MY RESPECT, BEING YOUNG LADIES! " As this girl who goes unnamed walks by, she says, "... AND YOU SHUT UP YOUNG LADY! I'VE HAD ENOUGH WITH THIS FILTHY SCREAMING OF YOURS! I'M NOT LETTING NOBODY SCREAM IN HERE! " even when SHE'S screaming too. When someone tells her that she was screaming too, she says that she won't take a nasty, liar's attitude. Also: One time there was a kind bus driver. The bus monitor lady watched the bus driver like a hawk witch. When he accidentally missed a turn, she started saying really loudly, "SEE?! WE MISSED A TURN 'CAUSE ALL YOUSE ...more
Same thing! Whenever we go on field trips the girls have to sit on the right, while the boys sit on the left! I mean, I don't like sitting with girls. They always want my stuff. The boys are hilarious. I want to tell my bus driver that I'm a tomboy, so too bad! - HyenaLover
All of the bus drivers I've got since 2nd grade were mean. The one I have this year I probably the meanest I can ever have. First of all, she tells us where to sit. The first few days of school she was nice and let us sit where we wanted. She must have memorized which people were friends and separated the. Me and my friends used to all sit in the last seats, but now some of us sit in the front, some in the middle and I sit in the back. Second of all, she won't let us talk no matter what. My bus got in a crash yesterday and I needed to borrow someone's phone to call my mom and let her know I was ok but the bus driver didn't let me because there was no talking allowed. Third of all, she threatens to report everyone to the school if they do any minor thing like whispering. Forth of all, she comes at different rimes everyday, seriously. One day, my bus came at 7:45 to pick us up and the next day she came at 8:15. The day after that, she came at 7:30 so you never know when the bus is ...more
In 6th grade the kids did drugs
And this is why I NEVER sit in the back of the bus. On Monday some Stupid girl in 7th Grade purposely blew her nasty Takis breath at my face.
There is this black group in the back. I have nothing against black people. They are just as good as white people and it's not fair that they had to discriminated. But it turns out that the black people I see...well...they are wild. And the group talks about sex and stuff like that. Girls are in the group too. They throw stuff at people out the window. I ALSO RECKON THAT I GOT HIT IN THE HEAD AT LEAST 20 TIMES A YEAR BECAUSE THAT GROUP THROWS STUFF.
I don't know why this isn't higher; my bus has all the bad kids on it, and they like smoke on the bus, they pass weed around and the bus driver pretends not to notice. One time, we went to sit in a seat that they typically sit in, and they literally headbutted my friend until she fell over. And they play rap music loud enough to drown out every conversation on the bus and talk over it.
Why won't they shut up. It is pure torture.
The other things in this list are annoying but not too irritating, now THIS... This is the worst... OBNOXIOUS PEOPLE... in the morning I go on the bus that is usually crowded, its terrible, there's always a kid who screaming for no reason, there's stupid conversations, kids who smell like crap, the list goes on. Luckily I go on a different bus that's completely the opposite when I go home (oh the irony). once when I went home we combines buses and now I went home exhausted with people screaming in my ear, and barely any space to even move on the seats. sorry for long comment
The big kids were hollering in my stinking ear I wish I could swear but I can't. My cousin got a headache. I asked to never go on that bus again and still no.
Story of my life. I always just read a book on the bus or I stare at the fields, and some little kids literally scream in my ears! - DogsUnleashed
When I was in high school I used to ride the regular buses instead of the special ed buses. During the first few weeks of school, the buses left me and several other students several times during after school hours. (this was during my freshman year) After calling my mom to pick me up several times, my mom complained to the school and bus company and then I got put on the special ed bus until I got out of high school.
Yes so here is the thing. I know I am suppose to be out 5-10 minutes early but sometimes I have other things to do and/or get up late. It’s usually my fault if the bus comes early or I am not out and the bus is on time or even late. But it sucks because I get in trouble and when my parents drive me they always get the there last minute or late. It just sets me up for a bad day when I miss the bus.
Fortunately the special needs school bus in Britain (Most kids walk to school or local buses have school runs) waits for you. They have a bus driver and another adult who is on the bus to makes sure everyone behaves.
Uh-huh. yesterday I got a new bus driver and he skipped my stop and we had to go to the very last bus stop in our neighborhood.
I was forced to smell gross odors and it was so hot during the summer!
So I was in 5th grade going to a middle school for a tour around hell and my bus driver in 90 degree weather had all of the windows shut and the fans were pointed to him. He wouldn't allow us to put down the windows and it was honestly hard for me to breathe. And de ja vu for the way back.
We don't have a bus at my regular school but when I go to summer school (no, I'm not an idiot), we have to take the bus and it's hot on that bus. There are 2 tiny fans and they're BOTH pointed at the driver, talk about selfish. We can put down our windows but it's still hot. Especially since I live in Chicago the weather gets fierce.
I agree. At least three of the seats on my bus have one or more (notice I said "or more", which is actually the case) nasty stains that someone sits on. My crush sits almost right across from me, and her seat has five nasty spots from a brownie that is at least five years old.
Really your not aloud to have fun on your electronics after.7 hours of schoo
The bus driver will suspend you from the bus if he sees you with your phone honestly I go on my phone anyway. I'd rather be kicked out of the bus for a stupid reason then not texting my parents for an urgent reason. - KittenCat
I feel bad for people with this rule. On my bus we can use our electronics but we have to turn off the volume or use earphones.
On my bus we can have electronics as long as we keep it down
Years ago we had a driver where most of my drivers would come between 6:45 and 7:00 she would be here at like 7:15 and we barely had anytime to do anything when we got to school. Eating breakfast for one was a challenge when on a good day you would have ten minutes. Some days where 3 to maybe 5 minutes. If the bus was late sometimes we would be late to school. There would be days where I would walk into school and the bell had already rung and had to rush to class. She was a nice lady but she was a pain in the ass when it came to stop times. She was I don’t think ever late in the afternoon. When there was subs though sometimes they would come closer to 7:25 or maybe even 7:30.
In high school I had to ride a bus with other special ed kids and they were not allowed to get off the bus alone, even if the bus was late to the school.
Today, when I got off the bus, it was already form time!
EVERY SINGLE TIME there's a sub driver...
It is only 2 months after the school year started, and 4 times the bus came one hour late. Enrichment classes were wasted because of this. The bus company cannot hire drivers and are running short on them. Thank goodness I drive in when the bus is over 25 minutes late.
So true especially in the winter when it is like -30 and you have to wait for a long time at your bus stop and you want the bus to hurry up so you can warm up
My bus is late for school EVERY DAY in the winter because of snow, even if it was one flake it's late
Nobody to talk to
I flucking hate my bus driver he is a smelly lazy bum. And I have nobody to talk to, just so you know m, his name is tom he works mid island taxi
There are no seatbelts on buses because that would mean you would have to have every single child of all ages be able to in-belt themselves should something happen. Buses have something called "compartmentalization" it has been studied extensively and is why the seats are placed where they are and are also why the backs are as tall as they are. If something were to happen to the bus, the driver is the one that needs to get those kids off. The drive can not get 72 seatbelts unbuckled in the time it could take something seriously horrible to happen to the bus. That is why there are no seatbelts on buses. Cars are completely different. They are built differently, they do not have the same structure, that is why you need seat belts in cars. - cjstar24
There are seatbelts in the Mental illness kids - Ethan-metal1
When I was in elementary school my buses had seatbelts but only the special ed kids used them
All the other busses that go to and from my school have seatbelts. Mine doesn't..
I hate that, I play the tenor sax and IT SUCKS.
Well, before we I talk about the main topic, here's my short story about the bus. In California it took two hours to come home. Everyday. And also there's stupid annoying kids ruin it. Vancouver, Washington. Well things get a little better. Not really. There's a bus that would take me home in 5 minutes but the stupid school doesn't let me. Instead they make me go on a bus that takes 20 minutes to go home. And now to the story. Every morning on the bus 95% of the time I have to sit by someone with a large instrument sitting on my lap. What a fun miserable start to my morning. After school only gets worse. My science teacher makes everyone put their backpacks in their locker. I have to grab my instrument. And the bus is the second in line all the way across the school. Oh and I have 5 minutes to get there. Recipie for dissaster?
It is the worst
Vote for this
I know how you feel because once when I was on the bus I was sitting in the best seat and this little kid named Daniel was sitting next to me and next thing you know he wiped his boogers on the seat and ate them so when I had the chance I moved to the next best seat and try to avoid Daniel and my new seat has a swear on it which is honestly funny as heck. - QuickMan
YES little nasties be wiping their boogies all over the seat and putting their muddy shoes everywhere! And people taking off their shoes AND SOCKs! ew
When there's humidity on the window and I wondered if a weird kid somehow licked it or someone threw up on it.
The bus drivers never clean
Near my high school there is a traffic light that took OVER 5 MINUTES to turn from red light to green light but then 1 minute later it goes from green light to red light.
True every morning my bus seems to get every red light worse when your late for school because of the late bus
SO ANNOYING. I hate red lights so much. - Lunala
I can relate to this tremendously! My bus is over full with kids and a lot of the time half of the bus has to sit three to a seat. It’s really annoying when no one likes you and wants to sit with you.
Once in elementary school all the seats were full. We were not allowed to have 3 kids in a seat at once. I decided to stand, and I got in trouble.
Not being able to find a seat and having to sit with some random person. Sucks
Ugh literally no one I knew but two jerks in on of my classes was on my bus. I ended up making myself get to the bus super early at the end of the school day so that I could just find an empty seat.
Two 7 year olds in my school bus wont stop EATING!
In my bus you're allowed to use phones and computers and play music but you are not allowed to eat/drink unless its water - Lunala
What would happen if the bus made a sharp turn? The food would fly everywhere!
Once my friend's sister got to eat on the bus because she was running late. - Spirtfall
I hate traffic. It's boring and takes too long! - 40
That's RIGHT TRAFFIC SUCKS! First of all every time, every time I GO ON MY BUS, traffic happens.
I HATE TRAFFIC! Except in the car because its not that noisy.
I'm like move batch get out the way
I hate this website
Most bus drivers are overweight and single.
Ugh so many farting boys. Including my bus driver ugh.!
My bus in high school had air freshener but it doesn’t work well.
Every time I ride the bus I always make sure I brought headphones and my phone. So I can drown the horrible music, little kids, and stupid people out by lite ing to Slayer, Slipknot, Trivium, Korn, System of a Down, Whitechapel, Lamb of God, and Children of Bodom.
My bus driver memorizes who each persons friend is and separates them completely when they try to sit together quietly. I always have to sit in the last seat and my friend sits in the first seat. I hate the bus.
I'm 15 and my bus driver makes me sit with a 10 year old kid. He does this because I have trouble talking to the kids my age, mainly because their girls and I'm a guy, plus they're weird. And the 10 year old is a lil thuglet
Screw bullies even if they eat pizza too! - AlphaQ
More like being the kid no one wants to sit with AND gets made fun of and ignored when you try to talk.
Well that's the opposite of what's happening to me. I'm the popular guy in the school but unlike some, I'm actually really nice and friendly and don't mind helping you - AlphaQ
I'm not exactly the kid no one likes to sit with but everyone on my bus in my grade has their own friends they sit with so I'm stuck all alone. It really sucks. - Spiritfall
I'm basically the DUFF of the group. Designated ugly fat friend.
Or even the teachers or principal
That screeching sound!
The big buses always make that sound! - Stazemar000
I was in the back one time and some 1st grader yelled "I WANT THIS SEAT! MOVE! " I told him to shut up and he punch me so I did my natural instincts and punched him straight in the nose. He started to cry and turns out I broke his nose. I got in big trouble and the kid got off scott free. Seriously. He even yelled so loud people in other cars could hear and they looked at the bus! Anyways I was the one who got in trouble, and I saw the kid smile when I got in trouble and I had to sit in the front for 2 whole years! That kid got to sit wherever he wanted! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Some ass wouldn't let me get in the back with my friends and he actually CARRIED me up to the front seat with the annoying little kids and the bus driver just thanked that kid! That older kid was rewarded! That's why I hate people
Once me and 2 other people in my grade had to kick some 4th graders out because they were sitting way back to the 11th seat. (my bus has everyone sit by grade level) I didn't want to kick them out, but the kids were sitting way too far back. - Spirtfall
When I was in fifth grade there was some girl a grade LOWER than me and she shoved me out of the seat! - DogsUnleashed
The only good thing is you jump off the edge.
We need to learn about these thingies which break the window. All everyone wants to do is talk about Shoe Game. My class is gonna get hit by the bus and become human pancakes. - Lunala
I have nothing against them. I mean, it’s pretty useful practice. But I have to admit; it’s a little annoying sometimes. Say there’s a fire that starts at the back of the bus. Obviously, we try to get off the bus. But how in this world are the 8th, 7th, and 6th graders supposed to get off the flaming bus when the slow kindergarteners and 1st graders take forever to get off!? As horrible as it sounds, I am not burning to death because some slow little kids can’t hurry it up. I WILL be shoving and jumping over the seats if my LIFE IS BEING THREATENED.
Teacher " you have to slide off the bus not jump out of it, please go back on the bus"
Me. " if this was a real emergency wouldn't the priority be getting away from the bus? " - Frouze
This doesn't even belong in here.
Actually, yes : My bus driver puts the radio on at the same channel all the time (92.5) and everyday I have to hear Justin Bieber songs. - MaxPap
This is irrelevant and disrespectful
I know right
We have trolleys in my neighborhood and in order to get to the high school the bus had to cross the tracks
You have to be quiet. Um hello trains are loud and you can still see. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL
My bus driver took a short cut and we took longer than what it would have if we waited
Only when it's your bus, it's retarded.
A lot of school districts, especially cash-loaded ones in the city, have started switching their buses to run on propane because it is REALLY cheap. Lucky for the people who are worried about diesel fumes, don't cause propane is relatively clean burning.
School buses are extremely polluting, diesel exhaust has been banned in some countries due to health risks
I wish diesel was illegal in the United States - Ihateschool
DIESEL FUEL IS AWESOME
I have to have my knees like a foot above my head to be able to sit there - Ethan-metal1
Once they kicked my seat so much I got a bruised back. But they got in trouble. Ever since the problem has been nonexistent. - Lunala
And they won't stop, no matter how many times you ask - Haumea
I know I know right
My buses never played music
What the hell is wrong with those people, why won't they stop it. It's pure torture!
It's their taste of music. Everyone doesn't have to listen to rock. Go away if you're one of those crazy fans - JaysTop10List
In my bus, it's either broken radio or at best, just ads about dentists and economy. Boring. - Lunala
A kid on my bus listens to music that no one likes like old Justin beiber Nicki minaj - Ihateschool
Sometimes (rarely) these guys are good. Here's my story. So one day my bus came kind of late (on a very rainy day). When it came, I got on. There was a sub. I was like "Ooh, sub! " The sub just started turning and stuff everywhere, taking us to where we weren't supposed to, and going to various stops late. Most of us figured out we could get this guy away from the school, and it worked. We were laughing our butts off until the bus came to a big street thing. If he turned left, it would go toward the school. If he turned right, it would get us away from it. But he turned left, getting us closer to the school. We tried to get him to turn back, but he found out the way to the school thanks to this other guy's GPS (he wasn't a kid, he was a bus monitor guy or something). We almost got to miss school, but good things never last forever.
Once in middle or high school I was standing outside my house and they had a sub driver who DROVE PAST MY HOUSE EVEN THOUGH HE OR SHE SAW ME STANDING THERE
One time I had a sub and he made a little girl cry because he missed her stop and kicked her off and sad she had to walk home he went the completely wrong route and made fun of one kid, sub bus drivers are the devils son
Once a sub missed my stop. Me and my brother were screaming at him, and he yelled at us because he couldn't hear us. Over the racket on that bus. Thank god I only have to go on that bus after school (Grandmas) and when I turn twelve we get off
Especially when it's raining outside
The windows become misalligned so easily and buses break down so often.My buses emergency exit has a metal grill so you can never know if the window is safe or not. Also, my friends seat slid out while the bus was moving so she had to push it back in and her footwent in the isle so she got in trouble for not sitting safely.
You are the oldest student on the bus. Then you have a handful of elementary school students that talk and yell and scream that slow down the bus driver. In my experience, the bus driver had to stop many times to prompt the passengers and assign seats to avoid conflict. It usually takes more than 30 minutes to get home because the annoying brats ruin it for you, even if you were the best behaving person. - GreedyPigeon
My bus crashed a few weeks right next to the board of education building for my city. When it crashed, all the kids on the bus freaked out and tried to get out but the bus driver and bus assistant won't let us out. We had to wait in the bus in the same spot until the person from the board of education (which was right next to us) said if we can continue or if we had to go to the hospital. I mean, why do we have emergency exits if we are not allowed to get out of them.
I was on a bus that once and my teacher told me the bus were using to get to our field trip crashed into a accident once.
When kids got in trouble the bus driver makes them sit up front
My cousin made me switched and hurt me and I scream but the bus monitor moved me instead of her. I was like so mad she was the one who could've move!
It was not that bad
Whenever it was raining, or when it wasn't sunny or just cloudy, my bus was always late. I hated that - 906389
True once it was blowing snow with freezing cold wind and my face was freezing couldn't even look to see where it comes because it was so cold
True on the 1st day about 2 weeks ago I had to wait for a late bus and it was raining hard
You forgot snowing... She only comes early on good days but really late or never come
A while ago, someone told me I was sitting in the "buttcrack seat". They said some kid pulled his pants down and rubbed his butt all over the seat. I don't know if it was true.. But we have different buses anyways now, though. - Spirtfall
One time my seat had cuss words all over it, plus graffiti.
I had to sit on a seat where someone once couldn't hold his and literally lost it and took a ginormous crap in the seat I had to sit in. There's still stains on the seat cause my school is too cheap to throw away that seat cover - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Bus seats suck there dirty as hell
Bus drivers that come at the last minute are annoying. I would rather have a driver who sits in line for thirty minutes then a driver who drops you off every day at the last minute. That way your late at least once a month, no time to see teachers before school, no time to eat breakfast before school, visit with friends before school. Not like I am in a hurry to get to school but it pisses me off when a some drivers come last minute. School starts at 8:00. But we have to stop by two other schools. I think that school started at 7:50. Anyways we had to stop by one school. Then got to mine I would have maybe five minutes before the bell rang. There where countless days where I would walk into school and the bell already rang and I had to rush to class. I was late multiple times as well. I liked her but she came at 7:15 when most other drivers came somewhere between 7:00 and 6:45. It was annoying as hell. The route was short so I guess she just did not want to wait in line or something. ...more
My bus comes at 6:42, and I have to get up at about 5:30 in the morning. I keep falling asleep in class because of this!
My bus is scheduled to come at 7:10, but its always late so it comes at 7:20...
On my bus there is this kid. I was on my phone, and he starts saying to me,"TAKE A VIDEO OF ME! " And I'm like no. So, he then takes my phone right out of my hands, and starts taking videos. I say,"GIVE ME MY PHONE BACK! " He did. Once he got off, he told his mother that I TOOK THE VIDEOS. NOT HIM! The next day, it was a normal day until after lunch. I was walking to my class, and when I got in, the announcement thing says,"can I please have Ava to the office? " (Ava is my name by the way) I then walk down and the principle says,"So. We need to talk about something that happened on the bus yesterday." And then I was terrified. The principle says,"Paul said you were taking videos on the bus! " And I said,"no! Paul took my phone and started taking videos! I can show you them! " And I show him the videos and he was like,"No. You could have taken those.i am going to be giving you assigned seats for the rest of the year! " I had to sit in the front of the bus. I now HATE my principle, and ...more
I HATE WHEN HAPPENS
I'm In Arizona. The air conditioning barely works. Now add 110 degree heat in an enclosed space. 70 degrees? You're lucky.
Especially when the kids were being so loud the bus driver pulls the bus over to yell at everyone including the innocent kids
It looks more like a character from a baby cartoon. I don't know why.
Actually it is a prison bus cause SCHOOL IS PRISON!
This happened to me today I wrote a comment about it in the bullying section it is the longest one so read it I ALWAYS ACCIDENTLY SIT NEXT TO YOU KNOW THAT KID ON THE BUS!
