Well now hold on a minute, i stand up for you all. And feel bad for you all. Isn't it your responsibility to know your miles on your bus. I mean really. How can a person know how many miles you are putting on a bus. Specially if you are taking trips with it besides your regular route, all them miles are turned into the main office if im correct. And buddy no wonder they dont consider you "PROFESSIONAL". Your spelling is so poor. And you wanted a raise. And are you not suppose to take your bus to the bus garage every 6,000 miles. In the beginning of the week, i over heard that man over the garage talking. He said all the oil changes were done EXCEPT for the drivers that haven't turned in some kind of paper, So i guess that means yours is not turned in. and with your bus leaking and you are to keep a eye on it. I'm sure they can narrow down who you are!

Days, you are right. I as a bus driver, am responsible for bringing my bus to the garage. And you over heard correct. All oil changes are done except for the ones who haven't turned in their Miles Report. That has to be done by the drivers twice a year. and we as drivers are the only ones that know how many miles are put on our buses that we use on our regular routes and field trips and sports trips. All our trip forms go to the central office. The the garage has no clue how many miles we are putting on our bus. Sorry but that's the truth.

To school bus driver. Is there a rule against people being in the bus garage? And if its too noisy for you then I guess you should call HAROLD outside and discuss what you need from him. And if you think that what he does and has to keep up with and deal with is so easy then take your ass up there and apply for the position I'm sure you would be ideal for it! And its not hard to check your oil and I'm sure it would be taken care of if it got bad enough and was loosing that much oil. I was told they had paperwork of the drivers that needed oil changes and it was kept up with. Has your oil been changed lately?

P.S.- I do know how to spell. So please don't included myself with the ones that don't. And I as a bus driver feel i should have a right to be at the bus garage. I am employed by the "BOARD" of Education. And I am a bus driver.

Everything that goes out of town has a warranty on it. Or to a garage that has the equipment to fix it.. You know as well as i do. That garage is to small. If you tear something down and the part is back ordered (which it has happen in the past) that garage is tied up in til that part comes in. And all oil leaks were taken care of. Unless there are new ones. Because i drove those buses to be repaired. With the equipment that is at the garage, what can be fixed there is fixed there. from tires to water pumps, etc. Anything to do with a computer diagnostics can not be done. And on most of these buses now that has to be done. Can only do the best you can do with what you have.

BUS DRIVER, I did what you said. State law reads. There shall not be any smoking in a closed non vented area. Or with children under the age of 19 years of age. And as far as our local smoking ban. No wheres that children are or could be present. In public places. So the bus garage does not fall under that category. You have a good job. I believe if i am not mistaken. you should have 2 jobs with the Board of Education. And side trips. Why are you worried about the bus garage. And if you took your bus to be serviced when it was due. I'm sure it would be done.

I think you must have looked at the smoking ban for Tennessee and you are correct about what it says. However there was a law passed that all smoking is banned in any and all government buildings. If I am not mistaken the bus garage is a government owned building. Also I know there is a law about smoking on the busses and I know for a fact, because I saw it myself, that Mr. Turner does smoke on the busses. All mecahnics should be certified, especially Mr. Turner since he is the supervisor. Do you know if either one of them is a certified mechanic? Our county is paying out too much to get these busses taken out of county to have things fixed such as oil leaks. I am not a mechanic by any means, but I know enough to know that most oil leaks can be fixed without a computer.

If i am not mistaken. It is not government owned. It is owned by the county. That is why i put both of those laws in there. And those buses were under warranty. And if they do not have the equipment in our county bus garage to do the repairs of that size. then they do have to be sent some where they have the heavy tools and heavy equipment to do so. Our bus garage does not have the proper equipment to do the bigger size jobs.And lets not forget OSHA LAWS. For safety reasons. Our bus garage would not be allowed to do these kind of jobs.And to my understanding this equipment has been ask for in the past. And as far as certified. Mr. Turner has went to all his classes and yearly bus safety classes. If the school system will not give raises to the bus drivers. Because it does not fit into the budget. How are they going to pay a new mechanic a lot higher pay??? And if they did. OSHA would still not allow them to do it. Check all information first.

I have checked all the information, the bus garage may be owned by the county, however any building used by the school system is considered to be a government building. Also if there are more than 2 employees in a private owned workplace there is also a law that can fine the owner up to $2500.00 if anyone is caught smoking inside it. What has going to all his classes and bus safety meetings got to do with being a certified mechanic? What kind of heavy equiptment do you need to fix an oil leak? You need to recheck your information, especially the OSHA laws. I don't think you even want to get them down there, that place would be shut down.

Let's see. Every chemical is clearly marked. All safety equipment is there for use. And the bus garage is inspected once a year. And the inspector is in and out of the bus garage at least 5 or more times a year. And there has been smoking going on while he has been there. And he is state. And i would guess if they were breaking the law with smoking. He would be the first to say something. And he does not smoke. You are getting to excited over nothing. There is nothing being done at the bus garage that is not suppose to be. And one more time about that OIL LEAK. The only oil leaks that were sent to be worked on was under warranty. I believe that already was told in a reply earlier. So it would be safe to say you are just a complainer, and you are going to do so no matter what you are told. and about anything. And the school system here is owned by the county. It is not government run. It is run by our county board members. They have to meet state requirements to have a public county school.

One more thing... If it had anything to do with the government. Then ALL employees would be required to do random drug screening. But again it is just a county operated public school

Ok first all employees are subject to random drug testing. I am not trying to just bitch about everything. I care about the children's safety and how my tax money is spent. I went back and looked at the previous posts and if you will do the same you can see why I asked the questions that I asked. Sorry if they hit a nerve. Wasn't trying to upset anyone nor did I mean for anyone to take it personal. Thanks for listening.

Smoking is prohibited in most enclosed public places, the definition of which includes both public and private educational facilities. Special school districts are specifically allowed to regulate the use of tobacco products in buildings owned or leased by such entities.

I know smoking is banned in public buildings. My concern about the smoking is when my child comes home from school on the bus and says that when they got on the bus this morning that it smelled like a cigarette was burning.

Would you just leave our bus barn out of your smoking dos and donts because I like to have an occassional smoke too. None of this mechanic stuff is any ones business. I think Harold is doing a wonderful job and with all of Tommys health issues I think he does pretty good telling Harold how to fix things. He is pretty smart. Even though he is quite large, not saying that he is fat but I have seen him on that thing that you lay on with wheels under a bus before. HE DOES THE BEST THAT HE CAN DO. I dont even think he makes $20,000 per year. So you just leave this bus barn and this countys business to the bosses. This is not jennifer that drives the bus for meigs county. I live in athens but i do have friends that work there. I have visited there and thats the reason that i have seen what i seen so please just leave us all alone.

So you really have a problem with your driver, the buses are not kept in the garage. why didnt you just say that in the beginning. They are not allowed to smoke on the buses. So why didnt you also just post your driver.
