They sound stupider than the kids. The kids get a pass though because we understand they're not all grown up yet.

Sheesh, that's some pretty tame stuff compared to literally every job I've been in. Making fun of the customers is one of the biggest perks. Doing it on a school-issued phone was pretty dumb, though.

Why would the mics be turned off?  They are discussing school, a service paid for by taxes.  Everything they say at a school board meeting, should be public.  There shouldn't be any private discussions.

It's not that the board members said something shocking, it's just that all their comments show they don't take their job seriously. It may be a joke to them, but the parents don't seem to agree.

I swear most school board members are only on the board because they were at the bottom of their class and are now out for some weird displaced revenge.

A lot* of school board and other local government "public discussions" are done in private before or after they invite comments from the peanut gallery.

Dropping truth bombs on parents should happen more often.

Board members were heard making comments about parents who were complaining about schools not reopening fast enough following state-ordered coronavirus shutdowns.

"They want to pick on us because they want their babysitters back," Brizendine was heard saying at one point, according to SFGate.com.


I mean... she's not wrong. Though she should count herself lucky if that's all they want. Around here, where our state gave no priority for covid vaccinations to teachers, parents recently had a protest at a school board meeting to demand that their kids not just be back in school (they already are), but that they absolutely not be required to wear masks. "Don't muffle our kids!" That's the level of stupid, selfish dickishness we have here.

As TFA says, the original incident was before the start of a meeting. They were talking amongst themselves without realizing people were already joining and could hear them.

"Should we do a quick three-way?"
- Erica Ippolito, former school board member


Is she looking for work?  Because I'm always looking to hire someone who shows this kind of initiative.

I have some mic coolant I can sell them.  I keep it between the headlight fluid and the elbow grease.

Maybe the parents need to stop being whiny little snowflakes and accept the cold reality that not everyone thinks you or your stupid spawn is wonderful as you think you and your stupid spawn are.

So school board meetings are jungle style free for alls and the members cannot talk publicly without interruption before comments?

Are the private discussions Q level secret and having them made public would be releasing state secrets allowing the Russians to get our nuclear launch codes?  Or do they just want private secret discussions because they are Overmaster class and think us undechuds are here at their pleasure?

Are we reopening schools so parents can have their babysitters back and smoke marijuana in their homes while the kids are away?

Well, that and because parents are tired of putting up with their snotty little crotchfruit and having to actually parent.

This was pretty harmless chatter among adults. I don't see the problem here.

People that get offended by jokes should be sent off to comedy school (Note: Nobody comes back from comedy school)

Why do school board members have the launch codes!?  Russian and Chinese spies are everywhere!

Oh, who cares? This is the kind of back-channel chatter that goes on in every group dynamic. I'm certain people talk about me after meetings are over, and I'm glad I don't know what they say, but if I did, I'd probably agree with them.

If there's one thing I've learned in my ~30 years as an adult, it's that we all stopped maturing in about 8th grade. A play on words, or obvious innuendo will usually get a laugh. Even if we pretend to be offended at the time. I can put on my Professional Voice, and filter what comes out of my mouth whenever necessary. But when you have a group that works together frequently, those barriers come down occasionally. Just because someone said "should we have a quick threeway?" doesn't mean they were all going to cheat on their spouses. Just relax.

I'm sorry.  This is an Un-Americuh-an Non-Fark-like response.  Try again?

huhhuh huhhuh.  You said "comes out of my mouth".

A) They were stupid to begin with for discussing that original shiat over a video call.

B) This new story seems to have come from someone tattling to the media over private text messages between members, which... not cool. Seems grossly invasive. Coworkers are allowed to make lowbrow jokes. It's your fault if someone mentioning a threesome (not propositioning or seriously inquiring) sends you into a puritanical tizzy. Grow the f*ck up.

School Boards and HOA's have much in common, and "Education Foundations" are even worse than them. Narcissistic nincompoops with delusions of adequacy. School Boards are why standardized testing was necessary.
