Is the Caller [All] There?

Today is the last day of school for our students. It is 10:25am, and the elementary schools close at 11:30. A parent called, worried because her son missed his bus on the way to his elementary school, and will another one come for him.

Let me repeat - Today is the last day of school for our students. It is 10:25am, and the elementary schools close at 11:30am.

WHY BOTHER?

A man came into the office the other day, asking for an application. He's a retired bus driver and wants to apply for a bus aide position because he wants to work with children.

I got ahead of myself...

At first, he told me that he's a retired bus driver and he wants to work with kids. He didn't tell me in what capacity until he was a good ten minutes into his rambling nonstop about this relative who died of a brain tumor, and that relative whose family is fighting over her ashes, he got attached to the kids he used to drive, he worked for the bus company for 30 years, that relative whose family is fighting over her ashes can you believe it, ashes, he worries about the kids and what happens to them when they're out of school, and that relative is married to this person and they're a great couple; they'd do anything for you...
