Okay I know this is no laughing matter... But some of what she was saying certainly made me chuckle. Also The 5th grader who called 9-1-1 sounds just like my ten year Old.

If I lived in that school district I would be demanding to know which store she bought the alcohol from, what brand it was, etc.

Why would you be demanding to know those details. Especially, "etc." Why would you want to know "etc."?

This is what happens when you contract out school bus service to the lowest bidder, who in turn hire minimum wage bus drivers.

First, she is driving drunk with a bunch of innocent children. Second, she is driving a bus drunk which is very dangerous for innocent drivers. Thankfully, she did not get in an accident. In this case, I think she should lose her driver's license for life. She is a menace to society.

Why? What purpose would that serve?

She...was...gassed! I can't believe her behavior went unnoticed when she checked in at the bus station that day. Coworkers, other bus drivers, her supervisor... wth, none of them were the wiser about her thirst for the grape and/or grain? It took a ten-year-old child to turn her in?!

Be very afraid if you have kids riding the bus. Adults who enjoy drinking will cover for other adults who enjoy drinking. They'll pretend they don't see it. "Not my problem". "Somebody should do something about her".
That dangerously frightening day didn't happen all of a sudden and out of the blue. Adults knew. And they knew for a long time, but did nothing to stop it.

That's society today. Our school administrators will terminate a child who bites a pop tart into the shape of a pistol, but turn their heads to drunken bus drivers.

I remember this not too long ago on "What would you do?" I would have stopped him and I hope most people would too.

Yes, I sure do miss those good old days when drunk driving wasn't dismissed as not very serious.

Oh.
Wait.

That's precisely the opposite long-term arc of social attitudes towards drunk driving.

PS - In your 'good old days', students would get sent home for such offenses as wearing their hair too long (boys) or wearing pants (girls). Yeah, that wasn't trivial at all...

Smart kid for calling the bus driver in.

In defense of the adults who didn't turn her in, she may have done her drinking in the parking lot before she checked in. The effects may not have been obvious until she was on the road.

Oh, pah-lease! Yeah, and she would have been completely sober by the time she drove the bus back to the school lot and turned in her keys?

People in whom you trust to safely transport your kids to school knew about her. If that doesn't tick you off, nothing will.

We all know who the drunks are where we work. If the staggering doesn't alert us, the smell will. This is a travesty that could have cost those children their lives. Stop burying your head in the sand, Sarahsez.
