From "Hank" on previous posts, "I drive a school bus and drop there every day"-by Hank Kerchef. So from your past posts we can tell you are a bus driver from Share River Hills. Good for you “Hank”, sounds like you have really done well for yourself, keep up the good work! It seems you have a problem with everyone looking at your past posts. Kind of angry aren’t you? Maybe the real problem is looking at you in the mirror. Instead of crying about FEMA and crying about other people why don’t get off the computer and your @ss and do something for YOURSELF. Seem like you spend a lot of time sitting on your brain. Kind of scary that a person with this kind of anger issues is driving a bus isn’t it?
