A bus driver has a grand total of one job: driving a bus. If you happen to be a school bus driver, you’re required to pick kids up and drop them off at school, then take them home later. It’s pretty simple and straightforward.
And then we have this driver, who went “above and beyond”.
The child in question missed his usual bus and took a different one. When he mentioned that his two moms would be upset, the driver–one Violeta Jacobo–told him that god didn’t like that and that he wouldn’t make it into heaven. So now the kid is rebelling against his mothers.
But the bus driver? She got fired for this BS, right?
Nope. She still has a job. I’m just gonna let that sink in for a little bit.
Now think about it: if the bus driver in question had mentioned Allah and the Quran, she’d be out the door. If she mentioned the Lord and the Lady and the Wiccan Rede, she wouldn’t be sitting behind the wheel of a bus. If she had mentioned the Satanic Bible and Lucifer, she sure as hell wouldn’t be allowed anywhere near children. If she had mentioned any other religion that wasn’t christian, she would be facing consequences. Not in this case.
But hey, she’s just “instilling morals and family values” or whatever. Doesn’t matter that she’s teaching a child to rebel against his parents. (The bible has a few things to say about that and they are not good.)
You can let the superintendent that you’re disappointed about this by writing to this address:
Jacqueline M. Byrd
Superintendent, Polk County School District
1915 South Floral Avenue
Bartow, FL 33831
“This letter concerns the conduct of one of your employees, Violeta Jacobo, [Insert your Words]”
Again, be professional and cordial. Professionalism will get your letter read. Swearing will send it to the round file. Right now, I’m just going to binge a few dozen kitten vids. Because if I don’t I may bang my head against a wall.
