I don’t know how it was for anyone else as a child, but riding the school bus for me often sucked. Mostly because the bus I rode was full of kids of varying ages. Being a first grader, I wasn’t aware of the unwritten rule of “small kids sit in the front and the big kids sit in the back.” So I sat where I wanted. And was picked on because of it by the older kids. Daily. Mostly for my ears. They called me Martin Lawrence. (It was the ’90s. And my ears stuck out. If you’re familiar with Martin Lawrence in the ’90s you would know why.) But we asked readers what their traumatic stories were from riding the school bus.
