Last Call: Heads Will Roll Edition

A truck carrying cabbages turned over on the highway outside of Rochester New York on Tuesday morning causing both extensive traffic delays and massive cole slaw.

    And for diners in upstate New York tonight, it’s french fries only… take it or leave it.

    So, it was my first day back at school today, and let me share my transportation woes…

    I live in a rural area, and I either catch a ride with my sister (10 mins) or take the bus (40 mins).

    Well, the wonderful bureaucrats in central office have decided that they need to track every child on a bus in their district.

    Their solution? A card system where every kid who takes a bus, from Kindergarten-Grade 12, must scan a card EVERY TIME they get on or off a bus. I understand where they’re coming from, but this system fails to take into account human nature.

    I give three weeks before most kids have lost/broken their cards and/or electrical gremlins take over.

      We don’t have dedicated school buses here, so pupils and grownups share the buses, everybody showing their RFID tag to the machine (=paying) when entering. The kids are doing fine. Give them three weeks to understand how it works, and by October it’s not an issue I guess.
      Here, the occasional glitch (forgotten/invalid/uncharged card) is caught by the system like this: the driver waves come hither and hisses very audible “JUST GET ON BOARD, BUT DON’T YOU TELL ANYBODY!”.

      I can see the need to track kids (and I’m a pretty conservative guy) because you can’t account for sheer stupidity.
      In Dallas pre-K kid wandered out from class and ended up in line for a school bus. The toddler popped on the bus, rode it for the schedule and was booted off when the busdriver discovered him as the last kid.
      For effect- the bus driver dropped off a toddler by himself in a strange neighborhood.
      The kid knocked on a random door and luckily the guy there wasn’t a freakshow. The kid told him what school he attended. A call to the school sent the mom to the guy’s house to pick up the boy.

        I remember that story. What about the story the other day (near San Antonio), about the bus driver that let the three drunk women on a school bus with high schoolers? The bus driver was fired, the three drunks got citations for public intoxication, and one was arrested for a assault (for grabbing a student’s arm).

        I also can see the need to track younger kids, but I think that once said kids reach high school, they should be old enough to watch out for themselves.

        My biggest gripe is just that it’s a card system. Wouldn’t it make more sense for the driver to just have a touch screen with names, which he just taps as people get on?

    Head size cabbage
    On the road
    Cause much damage
    I would’ve thought.
    But American cars
    Riding high
    Near and far
    The damage is nigh.

        This pops up regularly on my Pandora stations. As I was never a Judas Priest fan I also went to Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

    And that light pole? Those things have always reminded me of a praying mantis.
