To the driver of the car that wouldn't move:

There is a clear distinction between a "stopped school bus" and a "parked school bus."

The stopped school bus is characterized by the fact that it will have its engine running, lights will be flashing, a stop sign will be displayed on the side of the vehicle, and there will be a presence of children and probably parents.

A parked school bus is characterized by the fact that the vehicle is not only not moving, but not even running, a total absence of passengers, and the fact that its driver has a cup of coffee and a paper in his hand.

The latter type of school bus does not require you to come to a complete stop in the middle of a fairly well-trafficked road and refuse to move past said parked school bus, until the school bus driver himself has to descend from the bus to explain the difference between "stopped" and "parked" to you.

... no, I didn't have anywhere to be this morning...
