I really don't understand why parents drive their kids to the bus stop and let them sit in the idling car until the bus shows up. All those cars clog the intersection and really make traffic confusing. If you're going to drive your kid somewhere, why not just go a bit further and take him or her all the way to school? Okay, maybe in the bitter cold of winter I might understand, but when I was a kid I just bundled up and toughed it out and I'm going to make my kids do the same. America really is becoming wussified.
