PRAYERS TO FIND A SOULMATE

Prayer 1

Prayer 2

Hey Bus-ter

Rivki D. Rosenwald Esq., CLC, SDS 

A nice looking young man stood alone on a street corner with purpose in his posture. He was dressed casually, with a few strands of tsitsit hanging out.  It was around 8:45 AM. I and a partner were walking our miles before launching into our day. What was he doing hanging out on the corner of Broadway and something? Was he worth giving the third degree to; seeing if we could help him find his life’s mate? 

Make no mistake-at the hours between 6:30am and 10:00am, early in September, anyone standing on a corner with a, clear look of purpose in their eyes, has a kid! They are there to deal with one thing only- the battle of the bus!  

Each year there is the possibility of a new corner, or a new driver, new stops added, new routes fashioned.  No one can even think of leaving for work till the exact time and place where their precious bundle will be scooped up, is squared away. Is this the permanent driver? Is this the permanent time they’ll be coming? Is this the same spot they’ll be stopping every day? Assurances must be gotten to start dealing with other aspects of life. 

The yellow brigade is out in full force. Waze needs to adjust all E.T.A’s for arriving at people’s work locations, by considering  those stop signs that pop out torturously slowly ,off  the side of any stopped school bus picking up a child.  Every parent is truly ecstatic they exist for the safety of their children, but each person dreads being the victim stuck behind one of these buses. 

Sometimes we stumble into the misfortune of lumbering behind one of these buses for blocks at a time. I’ve rarely witnessed an emotion, more easy to identify with, than the elated relief, of a car driver, when this “stop every corner bus,” suddenly puts on his turn signal.  The desire to rev up ones  engine and fly out of there is palpable!  But - if the buses turn suddenly reveals a string of busses ahead of that one, it’s clearly time to stop at the nearest Duncan Donuts and - sit and "latte" out the deluge.  

Oh, and what about those little bite size buses? Just when you think the roads are free and clear, the whole preschool population needs to be whisked off for their day. These mini cabooses may not take up as much room on the road, but when their doors are unleashed the same dreaded red octagons pop out and keep your car firmly in its place.  

My advice is to leave to work at 5:00am, or take the train. You can even try walking to work; you’ll probably get there sooner!

 These school buses own the morning streets. Ninety of them pass by my home every morning, but my daughter has perfected knowing which one is hers- from over a block away, and still out of view.  There must be engine sounds or carburetor emissions, unique to each bus, that begins to speak to their passengers. To me they are all yellow school buses. But to her, one is clearly her daily chariot, complete with fun friends, or frustrating characters, and all.  

This is all part of the school day. Kids are adjusted to and content with circling the neighborhood for 45 minutes before heading off to school! Could you imagine getting your child to sit patiently in the car that way -while you did what you had to for 45 minutes,  before reaching a destination?! Those bus drivers have them trained. I’m thinking of buying a yellow bus for trips, then -maybe the first question when  we get into the car won’t be “are we there yet"? 

So you may still be wondering what that dad was doing on the corner of Broadway and something at 8:45am, waiting for a bus, without a child in tow. It seems he was not yet at peace. He was double checking the bus route as it came back, the other way; with his child already on board. That’s how devoted and focused we get when the bus route begins in September.  

Yes as September rolls around the buses do rule the roads. You see them gathered and settled in groups at night, blatant in their color, but silent, behaved, and well out of the way.  

However, with the morning light, they are masters of the neighborhoods. They are carrying precious cargo and we know it. So plan your route accordingly, but don’t get that upset with them. Because remember, if they weren’t doing this job each day- you would be! And honestly, carpooling to afterschool activities is tough enough!
