“If your child gets on the honor roll. Works hard, studies, does well on the test, makes the honor roll. I know that to get to school he or she had to get on a school bus. But when they make the honor roll, congratulate them, don’t say thanks to the bus driver.”
Note: The reason why this is so dick-ish is that I would believe most of us were taught that we sure as hell do thank anyone who does their job to your benefit you whether you pay them, someone else pays them or no one pays them. Especially the driver who gets your kid safely to school day in/day out for years.
