No air conditioning on bus trip to the zoo

I recently volunteered to chaperone my son’s field trip to the zoo; I thought spending the afternoon with a class of fifth graders at the zoo would be fun.

It turned out to be a big mistake, then when I showed up at the university at seven o’clock in the day, I wasn’t expecting to be boarding a university bus… Since the zoo is over an hour’s drive, I assumed the university would rent an air conditioned transport bus.

Not only are these buses more comfortable however supply better safety features as well. Since it was the second week of June, the outdoor temperature was already in the low eighties when my buddy and I took our seats. Not only did the bus lack any type of air conditioning however the windows were restricted to opening no more than an inch, however the skin of my legs stuck to the vinyl seats. The boiling conditions plus noise kids created an instant headache. The bounce of the bus made me sick to my stomach. I was extremely relieved when my buddy and I arrived at the zoo. That’s when I realized that the majority of exhibits are outdoors plus there’s entirely little shade, and my group spent a lot of time in the air conditioned gift shop plus elegantly cool reptile house. I encouraged a entirely slow exploration of the indoor aquariums plus insect exhibits, then because the kids were also hot plus sweaty, they drank a lot of water, sodas plus slushies plus required frequent trips to the washroom… At the end of a long plus entirely tiring afternoon at the zoo, my buddy and I then needed to get back on that horrible bus plus make the ride home.
