You'd be desperate to get hammered too if you had to deal with a room full of screaming brats all day.

Yup, that's how alcoholism works. Needs a Sad tag.

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...

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.

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.

I'm kinda surprised more teachers aren't drunk every day. I know I'd want to be if I had their job. Dealing with colossal assholes all day. And those are just the administrators.

Being a teacher in America today must be a foretaste of hell.

Alphax: 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.


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.

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.

You do know that insurance companies give gigantic breaks to employers that drug test? Not saying your blame is entirely misplace, though.

With student loans and all the certs, liquor is about all a teacher can afford for amusement.

Suck them down, suck it up and get your butt to work.

Harry Freakstorm: So she went to jail.  Do you think she could tell the difference being in jail from being in her classroom?


Probably quieter with nicer people.

OK students, today we're going to practice reading with the lights out and in complete silence.
