Last week I received a call from my Mother that said, "I'm okay, but a school bus just backed up onto my car while I was delivering mail....and I was in it!" Can you imagine!! I lost my Father last year and my 69 year old Mother still works full time for several reasons for the Spring Lake Post Office delivering mail in her own right hand drive vehicle. The accident put my Mother out of work, and of course, at a complete loss as to how to proceed at her age. The bus had children in it that have known "Ms. Joy" for years from her delivering their mail. The Harnett County School Superintendent never called to check on her or express his dismay at the situation. When I called him he was arrogant and dismissive and said "these kind of things happen"....what!!! He said it wasn't his job but if my Mother had sustained injuries (the windshield caved in on her so I guess the emotional trauma wasn't important enough) or something worse then he would've called....what!!! He said he had too many people under him for him to take the time to make those kind of calls himself. If the car my Mother was driving had not been a right hand drive my beloved Mother may have died in that accident. If a child was walking behind the bus there would have been an immense tragedy as well. Now my Mother is waiting for the attorneys and insurance companies to make their decisions but she is having to use her earned leave time to wait for them to decide!
