I’m feeling the generation gap the wrong way around again.
School buses are meant for playing stone-paper-scissor, not listening to music on an iPhone.
During rides in the school bus, children should jump around and shriek when they go top speed over a speed breaker. And they should, of course, get told off by the teachers. It’s not normal for them to sit grumpily and complain that the AC doesn’t work.
Rides in school buses are meant for talking about everything that happened in school – mean teachers, kind teachers, strict teachers, gross food… Not for sharing photos on Facebook and commenting on other people’s status messages.
The only thing that remains the same is that even now, there are a few students who sleep right through the journey home. That’s normal.
