Toward the end of the last school year, our daughter asked if I’d be willing to chaperone a class trip.

This actually seemed like a pretty great opportunity to spend some quality time with our little girl, get more involved with school activities plus meet her friends! I agreed without getting further information about the trip.

I didn’t realize that we’d be traveling by school bus. I swear they found the oldest school bus in the entire region for the trip. There were no seat belts, no air conditioning plus the windows didn’t open by much. The people I was with and I bounced along in that sizzling plus stuffy bus for basically two straight hours… By the time the people I was with and I arrived at our endpoint, I was drenched in sweat plus suffering a horrible headache. When I saw that the people I was with and I were touring a science museum I was completely relieved. I realized that a museum would be equipped with excellent cooling equipment. Instead, the people I was with and I stepped inside a seriously overheated billing. There was a pretty big sign near the entrance, apologizing for the lack of air conditioning. It was saying that the cooling equipment was under repairs plus would be operational the following day. That did us no good in the slightest. The adolescents were all sizzling plus angry, but nobody was all that interested in a tutorial on magnets or a demonstration of how electricity functions. The adolescents stopped at all of the water fountains plus then continually needed to use the lavatory. The people I was with and I figured out that it was cooler to eat our lunches outside than in the food court. The people I was with and I sweated the whole time plus then were forced back on that bus with no air conditioning equipment. I honestly will never volunteer to chaperone again in my life.
