Since when does anyone have to "substantiate" use of a rep icon?
But does any of that really surprise you, though?
Bumfuck Arkansas school district...Dayton...
Of course it's going to go down like that.
Insult someones home that you know nothing about.
Don't let it bother you. One day he will learn his lesson. One day...
I've been to your hometown, Crash.
And if you think the same kind of lax, pencil-whipped "training" doesn't also happen in other rural school districts around the country, then you're even more naive than you let on.
I await that day.
When someone calls you out on a bullshit claim that you're expected to ding up any company vehicle, regardless of the size.
Assuming anything g you said was true, your employer was grossly negligent to have hired your colleague that couldn't pass the test.
It seems to me that's only one sign of their negligent hiring practices.
No you haven't.
Yeah, but they should have stopped that hiring with that stop sign...
Sure I have.
You and I even exchanged posts about the lake there.
It wasn't my employer. It was another school district in the county. The driver in question (whose son was one of my fellow assistant coaches at my school) had trained only on a mini bus because his bus route he was going to be assigned to had only one student riding the bus.
He had trained only on the small bus but when he arrived for his test, the only bus they had for the tests was a 55 foot long behemoth.
For school buses the actual driving is NOT the thing considered most important. Buses are very simple to drive.
The things considered most important are
1) Conducting proper pre trip inspections making sure every item is accounted for.
2) Proper procedures in stopping to load or unload students including proper activation of emergency lights and signals and checking for cross traffic.
3) Proper procedures for moving a bus to safety if there is a mechanical failure on the bus and conducting a safe evacuation.
4) Maintaining order on a bus (no mean feat when you try doing it with your back to three dozen students).
Oh wait. I thought you were talking about Norphlet. I honestly can't remember what brought you through my actual hometown though.
Kind of ironic that none of my immediate family lives there anymore.
We know so much about your home because you are unable to shut up about it.
I loved my home. Surely that is not unreasonable.
No one is saying you can't love your home.
Unlike Dayton on his wife!
Dayton, on filling out surveys online.
Dayton, on rep.
The clarification is appreciated. The testing agency was grossly imprepared then.
We also had to drive the bus backwards and forwards through cones without hitting them. The only error I made was called "backing up to the dock" where you had to back the bus up and get to within a few feet of a traffic cone directly behind the bus (that you couldn't see) but not touch it.
I stopped several feet too far away from it.

Incidentally, the speedometer on a school bus is not considered a priority item to repair.
I remember when I was driving a bus for Norphlet and the speedometer stopped working entirely. Wouldn't register anything. I noted it in the log and notified the transportation director. A week later it still had not been repaired and I asked him again. He said it would be fixed within three months. I asked why so long and he said he had to order a new part and that the speedometer was not a priority piece of equipment on a school bus.
I found this troublesome as some months before a police officer warned me that my approach to the school parking lot in the mornings was too fast.
Dayton, on his life decisions:
On his chances of becoming President:
Somehow, I think Dayton would get sacked from the White House as well if we ever got elected
An older one I just stumbled across.
He'd be impeached before his inauguration.
The real question is this: if Dayton somehow managed to be nominated by a major party, would the party abandon their candidate, or would they puss out like the Republicans are doing with Trump?
