You'd be desperate to get hammered too if you had to deal with a room full of screaming brats all day.
 
2014-04-16 07:08:16 AM  
Ahhh, good old Lee County. If you were familiar with the local population this poor lady has to deal with on a daily basis you would understand why she needs a quart of vodak to prepare for work every day.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: The school bus drivers were probably relieved to see the "bait car" worked


It may not be true, but when I was young and riding the school bus, word was that the police would point their radar guns up when a school bus came by, and the bus drives knew it.

Nancy Vaughn, listed as a reading teacher on the school's website, had blood alcohol content readings of 0.26 and 0.27, more than three times the legal limit, at 9:11 a.m., about two hours after deputies pulled her over in Ester

I guess that's better than being pulled over in utero. Nevermind

Not surprising at all. There were teachers who were drunk all the time when I went to school. my 7th grade teacher brought a thermos of bloody marys every day for lunch. My high school vice-principal used to walk around in the winter with a coffee mug that did not steam in the cold weather and yet looked just like coffee with cream. (no it was not iced, that was not a fad until I was an adult). Yet, they were all good at their jobs and the VP even won awards for his work and time at his job.

If the idiotic powers that be would spend more time looking at the job performance and less time worrying about conformity, I suspect we would have more people working. I am not talking about the crossing guard passed out at the curb, but I have known far too many people who drink/smoke/whatever and were great at their job yet lost them due solely to the fact that they got caught in a random test or spotted taking a swig. So, the company loses one of their best employees, not over performance, but over some concept that being 'drug/alcohol free' makes the company look good to... well, I am still wondering who they are trying to impress...

They are called functioning alcoholics. The problem is while they think they are functioning, they are a huge liability. They skate by and say "I made it to work and was here all day" but are they performing at their best... or even trying? Trying to nurse a hangover or withdrawal is a full time job in and of itself. Soon, it will be too much and they take a little hair of the dog to help make it through.

Does this mean anyone with a drug problem is worthless? No, but a controlled withdrawal and detox with constant follow up is required. And why should the company/school system/employer be on the hook for that? She was already given a second chance in October 2013, and blew it.

And that is a hard 57.

Cops rarely pull over pizza delivery guys either. Since you drive for a living they are particularly lenient with certain infractions, including speeding, illegal u-turns and more illegal actions I won't repeat. At least it was true in my case as a white guy.

I suspect bus drivers get a similar leniency.

Hmm.  CSB.

I drove a school bus in Alvin, Texas for the 2012-13 school year.  Let me tell you, the cops would been ecstatic to pull over and ticket a bus driver.  It would show just how diligent they were in protecting the snowflakes.

As for speeding, our buses were governed at 60 mph, and just didn't have the holeshot to get up to any ticket-able speed.  They were also equipped with real-time GPS, so that the district could dial your bus up on the big board, and check your speed and position anytime they wanted.

God forbid if they tested you, and found .01 BAC.  They would throw you under the jail, and you would be a social pariah.

Not much in the way of GPS yet in the 1980s, when I rode a bus to school for about 10 years.

I pull over pizza delivery drivers all the time. They are some of the worst drivers ever.  It's almost as if they think their "30 minute or it's free guarantee" prevents them from following traffic laws.  Usually it's for excessive speed.  I don't stop non-delivery drivers for things like failure to signal a turn unless it's a safety issue (cutting somebody off, slamming on the brakes to make the turn, etc), so I don't stop delivery drivers for that either.  But still, those guys drive like idiots a lot.

If I worked in the day time, I'd have no problem stopping a bus driver for driving unsafe.  They do, afterall, have a bunch of kids on the bus with them.

Vaughn will be placed on administrative assignment pending an internal investigation, Lee County School District spokeswoman Amity Chandler said.
"That means she'll be placed outside of a school," Chandler said.


That sounds like they're going to have her there outside the school.  Maybe right by the door.  As a warning.  "This is what you will look like if you drink all the time."
 
2014-04-16 02:01:09 PM  
Double-FARK: While still on probation related to a May 2013 DUI to which she pleaded no contest in October 2013. Vaughn received one year county probation and a one-year license revocation as part of her plea agreement, though she was allowed to drive to and from work.

Perhaps she needs some real jail time to help her realize that she is an alcoholic.  And if she gets to keep her job, at least make her ride the school bus to work.
