Every year we go to Kualoa Ranch with Kindergarten. This year, we ran into a little glitch...two bus drivers from hell! Every year when we go to Kualoa Ranch, we participate in two activities. Half of our group goes to the Aquaculture Fish Ponds, the other half goes to the Ranch, and then we switch at 10:30. At noon everyone eats lunch together at the Ranch.
Highlights of our bus experience this year included: walking by a couple making out in a black car parked next to our bus to board our bus (get a room type of making out and our parent volunteers and kids saw this), finding out the girl in the car was the other bus driver, my bus driver informing us that they only had orders to take us to the Ranch and then take us home at 12:30, after dispatch corrected the error, the two bus drivers spending almost the entire drive over on the *bus phone* with each other cooking up a plan, dropping us off at our first stop and then informing us that they would be back to get us at 12:30, refusing to discuss the fact that we were supposed to be transferred at 10:30, one of the bus drivers threatening to *knock me* and strand me there if I said one more word, finally agreeing to take our group to the Ranch at 11:30 to eat lunch after negotiations with the Kualoa Ranch employees, the bus drivers taking off with the guy in the black car that followed the bus out to the Ranch (obviously they had plans and our day interfered with their plans).
Even after having to deal with two unreasonable RUDE obnoxious bus drivers, and believe me the parents were not any happier with the situation, the worst part was that half of our kids did not get to catch shrimp and half of our kids (including my kids) did not get to feed the animals.
So, our group spent the morning at the Aquaculture Fish Ponds.
Here are a few photos I posted last year from our 2007 field trip to Kualoa Ranch.
I have one more photo to share.
