Well, there's a reason he's the custodian and not the principal.

Really though, I understand "What do you want out of a janitor?" but this isn't differential calculus, this is common sense.

Over reaction.  It was just a school lunch burrito from yesterdays mexican food fiesta.
 
2013-04-23 10:09:55 AM
That's why he's a custodian and not the lunch lady.

Did they evacuate the entire neighborhood?

/It's the new normal.

If it is half as deadly as the taco salad I had yesterday there should be cause for concern.

"Hey, Charlie, I was up on the roof gettin a couple quick tokes off a fatty I rolled up this morning and found this.  Wonder what it i BOOM!"

So I'm guessing this custodian isn't going through the classrooms after hours and solving complicated mathematical equations.

Yeah, the guy made a bad mistake

but how do you tell and *active* pipe bomb from an inactive one?
does it tick, or have a big red LED countdown timer

or maybe you just assume all pipes with wires are active pipe bombs?

I dont know and - thankfully - I have never seen a pipebomb outside of a TV program,

I do know that everyone assumes they would be cool, calm and - above all - logical, in an emergency situation..... unfortunately I know that, in real life, even smart people do dumb things in stressful situations

AND THE BOMB THREAT WAS COMING FROM INSIDE THE SCHOOL!

/worst spooky story ever.

Maybe it was doing calisthenics?

If he'd had a gun this never would have happened.

Never bring a gun to a bomb fight.

By the way, is there some hierarchy in improvised munitions? How do various sizes of pipe bombs compare to pressure cooker bombs? I have no clue as to the relative nastiness of such things.

Why was the "other custodian" up on the roof earlier? What made this second guy, we'll call him the Bomb Whisperer, go up there in the first place? How often do the custodians go on the roof at this school?

Too many unanswered questions . . . ?

Dewinterizing a roof A/C unit?  HVAC repair?  Leaky roof?  There's tons of stuff custodians do on a roof.

Came here to say this.  I work for a cleaning company.  We're only allowed in certain areas, and then only to make sure the room is fairly clean and that trash cans are emptied.  We have security badges and are monitored.  How did either of the custodians get up there?

Maintenance workers, yes.  Custodians - no.

I'd guess it was tobacco related.

The active ones beep to attract the zombies.

The  butler custodian did it to make a hero of himself.

Do you have any idea what a pain in the ass it is to properly repair a membrane roof, subby?

It beeps and flashes when you throw it.

Ahh, I see he's following the Charlie Day school of janitorial thinking..

It's a janitor, so there's about a 50% chance of the wacky tobacky there.

Well, no six-year-old says "I'm gonna grow up, work hard in school and be a custodian". That's why he did it.

It was doing Zumba.  Either that, or it had a sputtering fuse, Wile E. Coyote - style.  That's all I can figure out.

How many kids did he bring up there with him? Too many questions.

Did it say Acme on the side?
