School Bus Drivers of Reddit. What do you folks do between morning pickups and afternoon drop offs?[Serious]

Okay, I am not a school bus driver but my grandfather was after he retired from GTE/Southwestern Bell/AT&T. He was sort of forced to retire, but he was one of those guys who couldn't just sit at home and enjoy retirement. He worked for the school district north of where I lived. He would wake up, go get his bus, do his route, drop off and then go back to the bus depot. After he did that he would go home, have a snack and start his part time job as a Dish Network Tech. He would drive a truck around and install Satellite on peoples houses, set it up for them. He'd usually get two or three jobs done before he'd go home, eat another snack, go back to the depot and then pick up his bus, go to the school, pick up students and etc etc.

He actually died 10 years ago on August 3rd. He was installing a Satellite dish on someones house with one of his bosses there to supervise him. He had a heart attack while he was on the top of the ladder and according to the doctor he probably died before he even hit the ground. He was a good man.

Served 25 years in the US Air Force and worked in Intelligence. Spoke English, Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and some other languages from the Middle East like Pashtu ( I think is how it is spelled ). He even worked at a listening outpost in Turkey during the Cold War and was also involved in the SR-71 Blackbird program when it was still active. He was a master electrician, carpenter, plumber and an all around Jack of all Trades. He could fix a car and turn around and build a house without thinking twice. Love that man to death. Was more of an influence on my life than anyone ever has and ever will be.
