Bus destroys Volvo - witnesses highly amused

Grade 6 kids at my kids' school went on an excursion yesterday in a bus. Kids loaded in street in front of school and bus reversed for some distance for some reason. Hits parked empty Volvo. Bus driver is only one on bus who doesn't know what's happened. Kids rush to back window as bus keeps reversing. Bus driver fails to appreciate what kids are yelling about (aren't they always excited on excursions?). Bus stops reversing when unable to proceed after pushing Volvo into tree. Volvo now substantially damaged front and rear. Volvo owners now come out of their house to discuss matter with bus driver. Kids highly impressed with male owner saying lots of things to bus driver at top of his voice with f**king and f**kwit* and c**t and a**ehole and other terms of appreciation of bus driver's skills very prominent. Kids even more impressed when female owner behaves in same fashion at greater volume. Kids voted it best excursion ever, even before it had left the school.

Don't forget that Volvo is owned by Ford.

That Volvo was probably someones pride and joy, could have been any car, put yourself in the shoes of the owner, how do you think you would feel, no doubt about them being pissed I know I would be.
