'New Personal Bus Cleaner'
Posted by u/pullin2:
I was a school bus driver in the '70s. During height of court ordered busing, so I ferried poor kids to the rich side of town, then rich kids the other way. Lots of entitled brats but one stands out. Super entitled kid, constantly defying rules. Eventually I caught him (with too many witnesses) attempting to set a bus seat on fire with his lighter. School officials were called.
Hearing with officials and rich dad - and he's banned from all buses rest of semester. Dad offers to pay for the damage and quietly accepts the punishment. Then comes the surprise.
Next morning when I arrive at 6:00 am to clean my bus (regular task every morning), rich kid and dad are standing there. Dad introduces me to my "new personal bus cleaner" for the rest of the year. He brings kid every morning and forces him to wash and clean the floors on my bus before taking him on to his school. By end of year, entitled kid is actually working hard, and being friendly. We're getting along pretty well, and I help him out sometimes so he can get on to school. Kid turns out okay when all is over.
Good move by his dad.Life lesson learned?
Young Man Learns The Truth About 'Women's Work'
Posted by u/meinmanhattan:
On the first day of a two-week vacation, I saw my spoiled 10-year-old cousin tell his mother, his older female cousin, his aunt, and his grandmother that he wasn't going to clear his place or rinse his dishes because "that's women's work."
For the rest of that two week vacation, nobody had to lift a finger to clear a plate, rinse a dish, or wash a pot because it was his job. At times there were over a dozen of us there.Life lesson learned?
A Christmas Miracle
Posted by u/tiredoldb*tch:
I used to work at a women's shelter. Christmas time rolls around, and a man and his sourpuss teenaged son comes to the door. He says his son would like to donate some items to the kids staying at the shelter. Great!
The man and his son start hauling in some expensive items. There was an Xbox, a bunch of games, a flat screen, iPod, cool head set, etc. Turns out the kid ran his mouth, and the dad made him give everything to the kids. Christmas was pretty cool for our gang that year.Life lesson learned?
Spoiled Brat Learns Lesson At Soccer Camp
Posted by u/Meffrey_Dewlocks:
Used to work at a non-overnight summer camp and after-school program and week-long soccer camp. The town isn’t huge, so needless to say, over a few years, I got to know several kids from different programs.
One 10-year-old boy I knew from after-school care was a total [jerk]. Bully, snob, didn’t think he had to listen, tattletale (personal pet peeve), just awful. He came to my soccer camp and proceeded to make fun of an eight-year-old girl because she had old cleats when he had the newest Nikes and a brand-new cool design ball.
Unfortunately for him, I also knew this eight-year-old girl and knew that the reason her cleats looked old and worn down is that she was a BEAST, just all around amazing athlete who loved soccer and played hours every day.
I paired him with her for a simple drill where one person started with ball and you just tried to get past the other person and kick the ball at a stationary cone about 10 yards away to simulate passing/scoring accurately while under pressure. He was, of course, angry, saying she was too young and a girl. I said if he hit the cone three times, he could pick his partner. He again pointed out her shoes to me as if that were going to change my mind before giving in and playing.
She proceeded to humiliate him over the next few minutes. Not once letting him dribble past her in five attempts. He was LIVID! Bending down, messing with laces as if the shoes really mattered, then saying he needed to use his ball. Nothing worked. He was so angry, I thought he was going to be violent, but then it was her turn to be on offense.
He talked some kind of smack (I forget what) and refused to let her use his ball. She didn’t say a word, got a new ball. I blew the whistle, and she did a step-over fake which made him move to the side. She stood back up straight, kicked it between his legs, and hit the cone. She barely even moved. He was so angry. Second round, he charged her screaming. She kept her cool, wound back like she was gonna drill it at his dumb face, he ducked and squealed as she dribbled around him with his hands still covering his head, and hit the cone.
I didn’t make her embarrass him for the remaining three attempts and called a water break. The kid was just dumbfounded. He honestly thought his shoes were going to make him better without any effort. He was better behaved the rest of the week, but honestly, I think she just broke his spirit. He just seemed out of it. Hope he’s doing all right.Life lesson learned?
