Seriously guys? Buses? Why on earth isn't it "busses"? I've believed that was the correct spelling way for years! This makes no sense.

Will you please change the plural spelling of that word? Thanks!

Well, in general English doesn't make a lot of sense.

However, this one is pretty reasonable. Usually you just add an 's' if the word ends in something other than an 's', and 'es' otherwise:

cats
dogs
dresses
circuses

There are exceptions, of course (deer), but you are fairly safe going with those guidelines.

Just drive a car..

My drivers license got revoked after the "Incident" back in '99.

But thanks! Of course its Buses, now that I think about it, I just always pictured it in my mind as Busses....
