Sorry. Out of respect for having never named my previous vehicles... I abstain.

Very Understandable. I have never eaten a Krispy Kreme donut or watched all of the original Wizard of Oz and will never break those either.

Respect for those that have gone before shows character.

I have never been accused of not being a character

I just got back from the store a little while ago. I needed milk. It's really storming here, near whiteout. There was a school bus in my yard when I left and it's still there. I wish they would change the route one of these years. They go past my house, back into my neighbor's driveway to turn around and go back the way they came. Four times each day. A couple times a year they are good for missing the driveway and rutting up my yard. This time they missed it by ten yards or so. All for a couple kids that live down the road. If they continued past they could pick up more kids on the other end of the road, but that end has a drifferent bus. I don't get it.
The driver buried herself pretty good thinking the bus would go back up the four foot drop off

Send them a bill for damage to the yard. They're not supposed to go on private property.

I didn't realize that about driving onto private property. There wouldn't be a local/township allowance? I've seen busses turning around in other driveways in rural areas before. Although in this case I don't understand why they just don't continue up the road. That's what gets my goat. Actually, this whole door to door thing these days gets my goat, lol. When I wa a kid...

I think rules like that are set by states, and maybe even districts. It wouldn't hurt to call the transportation office, though, and explain the problem.
