After a school bus driver allegedly scolds their daughter, a family angrily swarms him with defensive slurs, only to face an unbelievable fallout in court.

While Reddit’s popular “ProRevenge” community booms with the “whatnot” of revenge stories, one narrative of a dad’s paramount payback on a family for getting back at a bus driver had people raving their uproar online.

After a tumultuous work record in his previous school, the man in question—a high school assistant principal—thought working in his new school would be much better. 

However, one incident surrounding a student’s “entitled family” and their horrific altercation with the school bus driver was the least he’d expected to witness in his career.

Redditor drichm2599 first shed light on the incident by saying they weren’t 100 percent sure where it all started. But they could very well tell that it either started with the school bus driver accidentally bumping into a girl student while dropping her off, or he scolded her for saying something rude.

Either way, the girl decided not to let it go and immediately texted her mom about it. Moments later, the girl’s mother stormed out of her house and yelled at the guy. Unable to confront the two, the driver drove off, but it didn’t end there, to his horror.

The following morning, he arrived at the girl’s driveway to pick her up, but she was nowhere to be seen. Instead, her mother, brother, and sister were waiting for him.

Surprised, the driver opened the door and asked them about the girl. The three boarded the bus in what turned out to be the guy’s worst nightmare ever.

Despite solid evidence, the judge didn’t check the footage.

The girl’s family screamed at the poor driver using swear words and threatened him while the other kids were terrified. However, little did the three know the faculty’s sophisticated HD cameras with audio sensors recorded the whole incident.

The driver sped away as soon as the three got off the bus and immediately rushed to the school's office where OP’s dad worked.

The assistant principal was annoyed and retrieved the recordings of the incident from the bus. After rummaging through the footage, he reached out to the school cop and got the girl’s mother arrested. 

The principal allowed OP’s dad to take charge of the situation as he was sure the man would handle these things well.

OP’s father avenged the bus driver in a series of incredible acts of revenge. First, he switched the girl to a different bus route to never mess with the driver again.

While that breathed a sigh of relief for the driver, more was coming up for the girl’s family. OP’s dad banned the student’s mother, brother, and sister from setting foot on the school premises again. 

To top it all, he granted the driver a month’s paid time off and started retrieving personal witnesses from the students aboard the bus that day.

With the help of their lawyer, OP’s dad pressed charges on the girl’s mother and brother, who’d previously been in a six-month probationary period for a different crime. 

Guaranteed with getting the girl’s mom and brother ample jail time, the faculty then dragged the matter to court. However, they never expected the girl’s mother to get anything more than a week’s jail time. 

The principal, OP’s dad, and the school cop flocked to the courthouse in case they were to be called as witnesses.

The legal tussle made it evident that the girl’s mother wouldn’t stand a chance. Nevertheless, her lawyer still tried.

Despite solid evidence, the judge didn’t check the footage from the bus. He thought that the several other proofs outshone everything. 

At the hearing, a little twist of fate played out in the faculty’s favor and earned the poor bus driver justice when the judge declared his sentence for the girl’s mom.

The woman was sentenced to 30-day jail time, highlighting charges with threatening, trespassing on school property, and terrifying school children, 

However, the best part was yet to come, and this time, it was concerning the girl’s brother, who had a record of skipping his previous trial.

The judge issued a bench warrant for the guy’s arrest, and he was eventually made to march to the courthouse the next day where the judge announced a year’s jail time for the guy.

“If that isn’t ProRevenge, I don’t know what is,” stated OP whose post went viral with over 1K upvotes and some incredible responses from people online.

“As someone who used to ride the school bus, I appreciate your time and hard work, and I hope your route next school year is peaceful and trouble-free!” wrote user MyLaundryStinks.

Meanwhile, some took a dig at the girl’s brother for pretending that nothing happened despite having a record of convictions to his name. Among them was Redditor AlyAmr who said:

“How stupid is that brother? He broke his probation, then he skipped his trial, and then he just sat at his mother’s house as if nothing had happened.”

As the discussion heated up, people flooded OP’s post with overwhelming comments, and the exciting part —some were former school bus drivers themselves.

“As a school bus driver, I love your dad,” user TheEquestrian13 wrote while people from the same career stream agreed.

Meanwhile, some users like Lynxsoul thought it was worthwhile to dig through the details and asked a few questions:

“Girl was hit, parents cannot speak up to the man who hit her? Girl was accosted. Parents cannot accost the man who accosted her? Is there something I’m missing…”

“She was not hit. I don’t know what happened 100%, but she was definitely not hit by the bus driver,” OP responded in the thread, adding:

“Parents have every right to do so, in civil manners.”

The girl switched schools after the incident while her mom and brother had no choice but to taste the aftermath of their offense. 

“My dad has told this story to almost everyone he knows, as he finds the (almost) instant karma hilarious,” OP concluded.

Questions to Ponder:

Do you think OP needed to elaborate on what the bus driver did to the girl to make the incident more apparent? 

OP claimed he didn’t know what sparked the outrage between the schoolgirl, her family, and the school bus driver but assumed the driver either bumped into the girl or scolded her for being rude while dropping the girl off. The precise reason is still guesswork, and should the wrong weigh more on the driver’s part,  then it’s anybody’s guess how the judgment would’ve culminated. 

Is it not okay for parents to side with their children when told off by someone?

OP stated that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with parents supporting their children when someone rebukes them. However, since he portrayed the bus driver as “innocent” in his narrative, it’s still guesswork what could’ve led to the chaos. Some say parents should civilly take a stand against their children’s wrongdoers, especially if the issues are petty.
