Diabetic is not "Special Needs" even though in a technical sense there are complications to the illness that might fit that description. This dude straight up left an ailing kid on the side of the road and left. (School buses don't "speed off") Buses have radios, everyone has cell phones. Why did this happen!?

There's an "unspoken sisterhood" of women who wear the same dress to a party. And boy, do they hate each other as only sisters can. Well, maybe, sometimes.

People say the silliest things just to have something to say. The media: they're like Fark.com writ large.

I for one, believe that unspoken sisterhoods should remain unspoken.

Be careful how you try to compliment people. A lot of complements are very annoying, especially when somebody is glowering at you because they think "there can be only one!"

I would have done the same thing after smoking crack and a night of cheap whores. Really, how many DUI's I need before they kick me off this bus? Rob Ford many?/snark off

Ladies, in case you were wondering and hadn't figured it out yet, "I like your shoes" means "Can I look at your legs for a moment, thank you." and "I like your glasses" is just an excuse to really get a good look at your face.

In fact "I like your _________ (article of clothing)" can be interpreted almost universally as "The parts of your body around and under (article of clothing) are attractive and I'd like to commit them to memory."

You don't think needing regular glucose monitoring and possibly insulin injections is a special need?  It's certainly not a universal need.

The veracity of this story is in question considering the source, the material and the lack of other cites to the same event in the thread.

There's an article over at Slate this morning discussing the bullshiat factor in net published news stories which focuses particularly on the Mail.

They apparently have been known to publish articles with facts completely made up.

Yes, because any compliment regarding the opposite sex equals "must... make deposit... in spank bank..." Sigh.

M0nkeyp0x: I have a feeling there is more to this story.


There probably is.  But I'm guessing the main points are correct.

1.  Kid gets sick
2.  Sister asks for front door service
3.  Driver said "no"
4.  Kids get off the bus at their normal stop...........which is probably within 2/10ths of a mile or less from their house (No one walks to a bus stop anymore)

If the kid was sick the driver should have called 911 even if he wasn't 100% certain it was serious............that is where he failed.
 
2014-05-01 09:05:59 AM  

M0nkeyp0x: I have a feeling there is more to this story.


Let's look at the picture painted: "Special needs boy has a seizure while on his school bus. News: The bus driver reacts by throwing him off the bus. Fark: And speeding away leaving the boy and his sister to seek help themselves"

And the facts of the story:
"were on their way home from McNicol Middle School last week when Andrew started having a seizure."
"His sister approached the driver and asked him to take her and Andrew directly to their West Park home, but the driver refused"
"Luckily for Andrew and Jazmen, neighbors who witnessed what happened came to their aid"

Best case scenario, for the driver, is that he normally drops them off a block or so from their house. The kid was having a seizure, and he dropped him off at his regular spot, instead of taken him directly to his house. Note that it was "neighbors" who witnessed what happened.

doglover: School buses don't "speed off"


You have clearly never witnessed or experienced a bus driven by the old bus driver I had in high school... That man was a maniac... They claimed the busses were supposed to have a governor to limit their speed, but that he had removed it... Whether that's true or not, I can tell you that I've experienced speeds and thrills in that bus that have never been matched in any other vehicle since!

"I like you shoes" from a male generally translates as "I'm gay" (and also "I like your shoes").

You're welcome.
