If you were deaf/hoh, mainstreamed, and grew up in the late 80s/early 90s….you were probably bussed.
I don’t think I ever went to my home school, I was always bussed to the school that had “special services”…which meant….riding the….
It also meant you were stuck on the bus for an hour to an hour and half one way.
I was talking about this with a friend at lunch today. This topic has came up more than once among deaf/hoh friends for many different reasons. Anyways, Gretchen and I were exchanging short bus war stories. 😉 She came up with the brilliant idea that us deafies should get together and write a book about our short bus experiences.
I do think the short bus culture deserves a book all of its own. However, for the time being I’m going to post a few stories here as I think of them. I also invite my fellow readers to submit stories to be posted here.
