...which corner of the busy three-way intersection (without crosswalk) you want us to wait at.  And yes, it's been a different corner each of the last several years.

Muscial bus stops!  Chose the wrong one and you lose! :smileylol:

Ok, not that funny, but someone in the office must think so.

Lovely! I wish, just once, ppl working in offices would step out in the real world for awhile. It would make them think twice about changing things without notice.

Thats ok 2 mom's in DS class have older DD who moved on to high school this year. they are going to a tech school so its a few towns over and are busing it since mom's have to get younger kids to school too. So this morning the bus driver pulled over and asked the kids how to get there. Second day of school mind you and generally freshman and sophmores on the bus. They wound up in a totally different town they were suposed to be in AND they never picked up the kids in the town the school is. Luckily 14 and 15 year olds and not 5 year olds but ok how does a bus driver NOT know the where he is going. don't you have GPS or a map or at least get directions before you leave!!!

Called the bus company today to try to get specifics.  They acted like I was crazy for wanting to know which side of the heavy-traffic/no crosswalk/3-way intersection to wait on.  They said I'd have to negotiate that with the bus driver after we "just try to find each other" on the first day!
