Gas prices and lines of cars at elementary schools don’t mix well
I am a senior citizen and I haven’t been to a school since my children graduated. I now have grandchildren and one of my children moved back home with a 10-year-old child.
On Monday he got sick at school and couldn’t ride the bus home, so Grandma went to pick him up at school just when school at Cleveland Elementary was letting children out for the day.
Let me express shock and dismay: Well over a hundred cars lined up to pick up children. Teachers out front of the school calling out numbers for non-bus riders to be picked up in front of the school; each car has a number in the window.
Is this world full of people who have the brains of an ant? We have a shortage of gas, thus the price of gas is out of sight. One would think anyone with the ability to reason would let their child ride the schoolbus that comes in front of their home.
You pay taxes for schoolbuses and gas for buses, salary for people who drive the buses, salary for people who work on the schoolbuses, and on and on.
These are the same people who line up to buy a hamburger and french fries for an already overweight child, the same people who voted for a community organizer for President of the greatest country in the world, and they line up like following a Judas goat to the slaughter, in a line, hundreds of them waiting for their children who are too good to ride a schoolbus.
Multiply that by hundreds of schools all over the state of Georgia and you will quickly understand why “all” of us are paying a high price for gas simply because parents refuse to let their child ride the schoolbus, helping to promote a shortage of gas.
Reminds me of a song, “I know I have seen everything when I see an elephant fly.” That is the only thing left for this old lady to see. I know I have just about seen everything and today is at the top of the list.
