BJ'S BLOG 04/24/14 "The Bus Driver and the Bikini Barista"

 
All aboard the Group Therapy bus! Keep your hands and heads inside the vehicle at all times, please, and always remember who your Rock-A-Holic Buddy is!
 
We received a message from Mike on Facebook, and he shared a pretty shocking story about a school bus driver who stopped at a bikini barista stand while she was driving kids around!
 
The bus driver – who is female – left the doors open and the bus engine running, with kids onboard, while she got coffee. It gets worse, if you can believe that: she got back on the bus with her cup of coffee and a lit cigarette!
 
Mike’s co-worker got pictures (he sent one to us) and they say this wasn’t the first time they’ve seen this particular driver make her coffee stop.
 
Let me be clear on a big point: anyone who leaves any kind of vehicle running while they do something else is an IDIOT. That is just plain dumb behavior, and it’s a thousand times worse if your vehicle is full of kids whose safety is your responsibility.
 
One more time, with emphasis, just in case there’s any question about my position here:
YOUR VEHICLE HAS CHILDREN IN IT, AND IT’S YOUR JOB TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING YOU DO SHOULD BE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO THAT ONE SIMPLE RESPONSIBILITY. DON’T BE AN IDIOT.
 
I have no problem with bikini baristas, but I can certainly understand why most parents wouldn’t want their kids being exposed to that particular kind of business.
 
When all is said and done, there is no acceptable excuse for this, but I have to admit that I’m sort of doubly surprised that the bus driver was a woman. Is it unfair for me to say that I expect a female to be smarter than this? Maybe I misunderstood all the lessons I’ve been learning from Oprah, but I just feel like women usually have enough common sense to know better.
 
(For the record, we sent the photo of this “coffee break” up to our management folks, just to be sure that we’re performing all due diligence.)
 
How would you feel if this was your kid’s bus driver? Let’s hear your thoughts, people!

Bus Driver Gone Wild
Bikini Barista's aren't the issue, Isn't it illegal to leave anyone under the age of 16 alone in any vehicle with the engine running? Those weren't her kids to make that choice.... AND....Did she bring a coffee back for everyone? What's good for the goose......

RE: Bus Driver Gone Wild
I think the issue wasn't the Bikini Baristas, it was that 1. She left them alone while the bus was running, 2. She came back smoking a cigarette, and 3. She took them off the route. She needs to get reprimanded! - Vicky B
