I can feel for that bus driver! I was a sub for two years in a EI classroom. It was the worst 2 years of my life. I was punched, bitten and once stabbed with a pencil. School officals are two affraid to do anything now because of being sued. The bus driver should not have punched the boy but could have restrained him under law if he was trained to do so. The good part of restraining them is if they get a shot on you, you can get a cheap shot in on the way to the floor. I know teachers should not say that but when I got stuck with that pencil I had to get one back in. Nothing like a forearm to the back of the head when they are on the floor.

Very true indeed. It's ridiculous that people do these things now. I completely agree with Mercer too. They are also getting caught so much easier with the technology out there like it is (phone cameras, etc)...

Are you really one to say that considering you are jumping into sewage?
well,I actually decided to make $50 by jumping into a huge mound of decomposed poop at the sewage plant. I was too scared to do the other thing.
[quote=Mercer Boy]Today's society has really set kids up for a fall...it's a multitude of things that has really made it tough to control kids. News outlets, video games, psychologists, movies, music...and of course, parental guidance and family structure (meaning too many divorces, "accidental" kids, and immature adults).[/quote]
Merc, you made some very valid points in your rant. This point however, I take umbrage with. It's called a victim's mentality and it is something that has swept through our country like a wildfire. At some point, at some level, personal responsibility needs to come into play. You simply can't lay everything at society's doorstep, that's the easy way out.
I like simple pleasures, like butter in my ass, lollipops in my mouth. That's just me.
