I’m not a natural business owner, just doing it by necessity. Tried a couple of businesses in my early 20s, didn’t do so great. But learned a lot. Starting Affordable Trapping was a big learning curve. I thought i knew a lot but knew less than I thought. Along the way, discovered: a) How the IRS defines things _is_ the defacto truth.

Hopefully they talk to the driver and say, “Don’t be a douche, it’s embarrassing. One more complaint and we give you the [route nobody wants] with the broken down bus”. Having a bad bus driver just teaches kids “don’t trust adults”, so I don’t see any benefit to hanging on to him except they probably have trouble hiring anybody at those rates, so they’ll probably keep him..
