The idiocy and overly sensitivity of PC is not just for the young. A grown female teacher reported my son to their principal for him saying something vulgar and for bullying her a few weeks earlier. He had to leave the school until an investigation was done. He was out two days before they called him back and essentially said that no one verified her claims even though there were other teachers present at both of the reported incidents. It caused my son tremendous embarrassment to leave the school in the middle of the day and not be able to tell any of the other teachers or students why he had to leave. When he returned, he just said that he had a family emergency and had to leave for a few days. BTW, the teacher that reported my son was formerly the Team Lead for their department last year. She did such a poor job, the principal made my son the Team Lead this year. Think that had anything to do with her claims?The only good thing that came of this incident is that the female teachers honesty and integrity are now questionable from her false accusations. Anyone came CLAIM to be sexually harassed or bullied, but they need to report it as soon as it happens and there has to be some verification or proof. Instead, my son was treated as guilty until proven innocent.
That makes me so angry!!What did she allege he said? Any teacher worth their salt would never be in a position to feel "bullied" by a child. Ridiculous. If children can bully you then you have no business being in the classroom.
When I was in college I worked for a program called GEAR UP. It was a federal program aimed at easing the transition from middle school to high school; the period where the largest number of dropouts occur. It is run in the worst of the worst school districts in the country. I worked in Bridgeport, Hartford, and New Haven (CT), some of the most dangerous school in the country. I never once felt bullied by a kid, even though most were bigger then me (and I am 6' tall) and in some pretty nasty gangs. I established ground on day one and took no s**t from anyone, even when a boy got in my face in the middle of class and threatened to rape me. I calmly and in a low voice said "oh yeah? Go ahead. See what happens if you try." He was speechless after that and so was the whole class. As a teacher you need to establish authority and be steadfast in it. You aren't their friend you are an adult and an authority figure. Teachers today forget that and just want to be liked.
If you are an adult and a teacher at Kingwood, and feel bullied by a teenager? Don't ever leave your house, the world is surely too scary for you.
@allymansfield: My son is also a teacher at that school (not in Humble ISD but in the general Houston area) Apparently, the vulgarity claim originated in the teachers lunch room when someone mentioned that a female student at a school in Vidor had been caught giving oral sex to other students at school. Both the males and female teachers were talking about this during lunch. The next day, the one female teacher told another teacher that she had been offended by the conversation. When my son heard this, he went to her and apologized if it was anything he said (he doesn't remember being vulgar). Even after the apology, the female teacher reported my son for being vulgar but did not report any of the other teachers that participated in the brief discussion. Of course, when the other teachers that were in the lunch room were interviewed, none of them corroborated her claims.
When asked for details about the bullying, she stated that my son stepped between her and the door, blocking her from exiting in a separate incident. There were two other teachers in the room when this event supposedly happened and both denied my son acted in any bullying way.
The teacher that falsely reported these claims has now lost her credibility and trust among the rest of the teachers. She happens to be a good friend of the principal so nothing happened to her for reporting false claims. My son did get a letter in his file (for that school only) for
participating in a lewd discussion, but none of the other teachers that
were part of the discussion received letters.
I suspect that this entire incident was done out of spite because my son was assigned team lead for their group because the previous team leader did not do very well. The previous team lead was the female teacher who accused my son. The principal made the decision to make this change.
When my son went back to school, obviously the other teachers that had been interviewed figured out why he suddenly had to leave school in the middle of the day. He is liked by his students and they had no idea why he suddenly left and were concerned for him. When my son returned to school, he told his students that he had a family emergency and had to unexpectedly leave for a couple of days.
Well, apparently, leaked emails AND video have surfaced of a coordinated effort between the Clinton campaign, the DNC, democracy partners and the Foval group to incite violence at trump rallies across the country.
These guys have become my pet peeve. They are terrible the way they think a dam lawn care trailer is ok to block traffic. No, really, it's not. Blocking a heavily traveled Main Street is RIDIC. Dumb azzsssssss.
They do it on residential streets as well. Why don't they pull into the DRIVEWAY of the homes they sevice? Most people aren't even home during the day. I especially hate when they park in front of a STOP sign on a corner. Which means you can't even pass the trailer without going into the oncoming lane. Which means it's just dangerous. Not to mention not being able to see any pedestrians crossing, much less little kids.
@TheTruthHurts: If they are parked at the stop sign(in such a way that you cannot safely make a stop at the sign because they are to close) call the police. Chances are they won't show up but it might be a slow day.
When I was in helicopter flight school at Ft Rucker, AL we used to gun run turkeys we'd catch out in the little meadows around southern Alabama. They fly OK until you slide by about 20 feet over them and then the rotor wash sends them tumbling. The things we do when we're young and foolish. <smh>

P.S.- My home-dude fo' life.... Fo' Sho' Fo' Sho'.... Fo' Shizzle....
Sad is that he's an old man dog. 12. Super chill and doesn't bother anyone.
What a sick f'ck to trial an old wanderer like that.
All good....he's back with his owner and my hand is ok.
And at Herron...you recently got attacked on the boards and so, so wrong. Much love to you mama and keep on, keepin' on.
You are a great person for the help of those (peeps and furs). Kudos dear one!
