Monday was a bad day for my husband. He is a bus driver and the first text I get in the morning that I get from my husband wasn't the kind of text I normally wanted to get. He texted me "I was in a small accident but I'm okay" My first thought was please don't be our car anything but the car. I texted back asking if it was our car or his bus. He answered back quickly by this time I got our daughter on the bus. He had an accident with his bus and hit another bus from the other county. Both him and the other driver of the bus was find. Their bus where both dented up a little. Thankfully no kids where on the bus yet. So my husband spend the next 4 hours filling the police report, driving the bus back out to the depot, fueling it up, cleaning it out even though it was clean already from Friday. Then he had to find a spear bus that was blocked so he had to find the driver to the bus that was blocking the bus he need for the rest of this week and time that he needs it till his bus is fixed up. He really wanted a soda but the soda he wanted the machine wouldn't take his money. Finally he made it home to me. He order a pizza to try to make the day better. Rested and then went back to work.

I'm sorry to hear about the minor accident. I'm glad everyone is fine and no kids were on board.

Me too! It's such a pain when something happens on the bus and the kids are one. The bus has to drive all the kids to the school and then the parents have to sign them out from there after the police reports everything. It's a very long process and parents get upset with it but that is how they do it.

@ShyBear88 Glad the kids weren't there! It would be a hassle but accidents do happen.

Good to hear the accident was a minor and not a major collusion and no one was hurt. Once something like that happens it seems the rest of the day does not go so well either.

@Marcyaz I agree. Sometimes we experience things that it doesn't make the universe unite in one day.

@Shavkat like I said it happen before he reached his first elementary stop in the morning and the sa,e for the other buss. It really is a pain when an accident happens and kids are the bus. Last year too many bus got stuck in the snow on the way to school because the busses just couldn't handle it and slid off the road.

I'm glad the accident was minor and no injuries to either driver. I hope the bus can be fixed quick and that the rest of his week goes better.

Sorry to hear that, good thing it was only a minor accident and nobody got hurt, your husband is a very hardworking guy who takes his job seriously, you are very lucky.

Yes, he does take his job serisouly. He is a good driver. It was the other bus that was in the wrong but they called it just straight up accident due to weather. So neither of them got into trouble. But I don't know how the other county deals with accidents. I was just glad that nobody was hurt it was just a few detentes and a broken mirror. He is working hard to become a teacher one day.

I am sure he was stressed up this day. A glimpse of you will boost him up for the day. It is also sweet that he texted you right away in times like this. He is also trying to have the strength from you.

He wasn't stressed about anything, just a bad day one thing after another. Yes seeing me for a tiny bit helped as well as two of our three little ones.

I can kinda relate to what your husband went through. My car was hit from behind Monday morning on the way to work. And a cop out of all people was the driver of the car that crashed on mine...

Oh no! My had and was freaked he would lose his job. But it's wasn't anyone's fault so for him he doesn't need to do anything since it was an accident on the other drives part. The driver drives for the other county so I don't know what they do.
