It Happened on the Way to School …

or the strangest thing that has ever happened to me on the bus

Ya’ll won’t believe this, my strange bus story happened back when I was in high school. Our jazz band had gone to a competition at a college in a nearby town.  Our group went to a restaurant for lunch. It had been raining all day. The restaurants parking lot was gravel sort of but mostly mud. Due to the band competition the place was packed. Due to the rain everyone was using only one entrance/exit because one of the exits had become a muddy mess. Our driver became impatient and decided to go around everyone and use the flooded exit. In the process our bus became stuck.  We climbed out the back while our band director and driver were trying to figure out what to do. In the mean time a city trash truck came by and offered assistance. The trash truck driver backed up to our bus. A couple of guys jumped out of the truck, attached a chain to the back of the truck and the front of the bus. A few minutes later the bus was free from the murky pit.  I think the bus driver was cussing about that weeks later when we went to another competition.
