Killer Whale in a puddle

I was walking towards St. Mary and for the second time I see a bus stuck in the slope leading up to the fields in the back of the Child Development Center. I'm sure this is another driver (hopefully not the same one), and I'm sure there are many more occurences of this nature.

You would think that SHU would do something with this slope or al least inform the incoming teams playing in SHU fields. Maybe this is for pyschological effect- a way to taunt the other team sort of like a "ha-we've got you trapped"- "You've been captured, now surrender." To psyche them out!

It is a weird sight, like a killer whale from Sea World stuck in a puddle at an oasis in the Sahara's.

Twice in the past three weeks our van has been trapped at St. Mary's, where my daughter is taking a dance class. The SHU police officer on the scene said this is the third time in a month.

We could theoretically have driven over the grass to get the van out, but the ground is pretty muddy and I'd rather not get the van stuck there, too.

I had a similar experience in B Lot the other day. I was trying to find a parking space (I think it was on a Sunday as I returned from work) and as I'm coming around the bend to go down to C Lot, there's a gigantic bus. It's just sitting there, blocking the whole lot off. The busdriver began to back up, which terrified me since I couldn't back up now that there were four other cars behind me, and eventually the bus pulled a 38-point turn and made it around that tight bend.

Now what would possess people to create a parking lot where you can't park buses? Our campus is very anti-bus, if you look at it in that regard. Too many tight bends, sharp inclines, and two-lane curves.
