Merrifield Merrifield Bus Company endangers students-protects crazy actions of bus driver-gives out students' home addresses-permits driver to go to students' home for private trips Athol Massachusetts
*Consumer Suggestion: TEACH YOUR CHILDREN THAT THEY ARE STRANGERS UNLESS MOMMY AND DADDY SAY OTHERWISE
One hot summer day, the bus was like an oven inside. When the students put some of the windows down, George freaked out on them, making the students put the windows back up or he wouldn't move the bus.
My child came home ill - beat red and soaking from sweat from the unbearable heat on the bus. I was informed that another student tried to put a window down, and George slammed the bus to a stop again and screamed at the student to put the window back up.
When I complained to the bus company, they defended psycho George that there is a vent in the ceiling and that the students were fine.
Now George has gone even further with his outlandish actions.
The week after school got out, he came TO MY HOUSE looking for my minor child to take her to the beach!!! I was at work, and my younger son answered the door.
He was confident in his manner, and knew my daughter by name, and requested her presence on a bus he would get from Merrifield, and take her, along with other students, he was collecting door to door.
My daughter called the bus company to find out what the deal was. Merrifield bus company told her he had permission to get students to go to the beach with him. When my daughter asked how he got her home address, the bus company told her that the school must have given that information out.
I called the school, and found out that they would NEVER give out that information, but that the school company already has that info. The school is very disturbed by this event and is going to take further action. They also advised I should involve police.
The police investigation revealed it actually was George, and after speaking to him as well as the bus company, discovered that the BUS COMPANY gave George permission to take students to the beach.
George claims students requested that he take them to the beach.
What if they asked him to take them to Boston? Vegas?
Why would he drive them 2 hours to a beach, when he can't handle driving them 30 on his regular route?
Why would a bus-load of students want to be taken to a beach by a guy they hate?
Why would he consent to taking student to the beach, just because they asked this of him, when they aren't even allowed to open windows and get some air?
I don't believe anyone asked him to take them to the beach. I think George is a pervert looking for minor girls to molest. I think the bus company is evil for backing this creep up and allowing him to continue to drive a school bus when he obviously has emotional issues. The bus company has violated privacy laws by giving out students' home addresses.
The police are done - they say George hasn't done anything wrong.
