So if you haven’t seen the latest bullying outrage about the Rochester, NY grandmother that had videos of her being bullied and pestered by a group of middle schoolers posted on YouTube…well here’s the story: http://www.washingtonpost.com/a-new-york-grandmother-is-bullied-by-kids-on-bus/2012/06/21/gJQA3plssV_video.html
First, the kids behavior on the bus during these incidents was outlandish, and if my kid were one of those kids, they’d be suffering for their actions.
But as I understand it, grandma was on the schoolbus as the FUCKING BUS MONITOR!!! Wasn’t it her job to keep the civility on the bus? But she just lets these kids torment her and behave in completely innapropriate ways toward her. And this wasn’t just one incident…there are three different videos of this going on, which means it probably was going on more than just those three times.
So since she suffered from the torments of these 12 year olds, some caring peole have raised almost $200,000 to send her on the vacation of her dreams: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/21/us-usa-bullying-idUSBRE85K15C20120621
Let’s reward grandma for not doing her job. If that’s what people want to do with their money more power to them…but I don’t get it. At the very least she should be relieved of her duties, since she has shown that she can’t really perform the functions of the bus monitor.
