Irresitable Force versus Immovable Object

Today our bus got stuck. Twice.

For serious. Our bus got stuck twice. The first time (about 4 minutes before the second time) Mr Robert the busdriver was able to get it out. The second time, he was not.

He tried to go forward. He couldn’t. He tried to go backwards. He couldn’t. He tried to go forward a little harder. He couldn’t. He tried to go backwards a little harder. He couldn’t. This went on until his tires were smoking and he was up to his lugnuts in mud.

My first thought was that we needed to put a 2 by 4 under the tire and let him try it again. Obviously we didn’t have a 2 by 4 so I suggested a sixth grader instead.

Tony, ever the pragmatist, suggested we not use a sixth grader and instead suggested we push the bus. I’m no physicist but I was pretty sure that 5 dudes who had mush legs from skiing all day weren’t gonna be able to push a bus full of people out the ditch filled with half the mud in North Carolina.

But we were up for trying!

NOTE: We did not, despite my excellent bus-pushing form, push the bus out of the mud.
