Then there is:

You look for the switch for the yellows when you are stopping to drop off your child at a friend's house. (Did that!)


Nothing great has ever been accomplished without enthusiasm!

1. When stopping at the end of a street, you look in front of your personal vehicle for the non-existent crossview mirrors to make sure your front bumper is positioned before the white stop line.

2. You find yourself looking above the windshield in your personal vehicle for an exterior light monitor, only to find a sun visor.

You're probably married to a school bus driver if your spouse blows the horn at passing cars while letting kids out.
You're probably married to a (California) school bus driver if your spouse gets out of the car with a portable stop-sign every time you kid needs to cross the street.

When driving in your car on a road that's part of your bus route, you keep reaching for the amber switch 100 feet before certain houses.

When your driving in your car and something happens on the road like a serious accident and you reach for a non existant two way radio to call have the boss call police. (I've done that before too)

How about when you give someone a ride and before you let them out, you reach out with your Right Hand to grab for the Door Handle that isn't there! I've done that one already. My best Friend asked me what I was doing and I told her, rather seriously before I realized it "How else are you going to get out"... then reality set in

How about if you rock and roll while looking left, right, and left again at intersections? I caught myself doing that yesterday driving home from the bus lot in my car.

I once called my wife and told her I was stuck in a Signal-17 and would be late getting home. She said, "a Signal-WHAT?".

(Signal-17 is our lingo for a traffic jam)

You take excessively wide turns in your car to maneuver in parking lots, slow way down for slight curves so as not to disturb the (nonexistent) passengers and flip the vehicle....
