Alphax: Mr. Coffee Nerves: The school bus drivers were probably relieved to see the "bait car" workedIt 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.
payattention: 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...
Harry Freakstorm: So she went to jail. Do you think she could tell the difference being in jail from being in her classroom?
