    Default The "Only in Florida" thread

    With so many of the goofy-ass stories posted around here taking place in Florida, maybe it's time for one thread to house them all. Maybe not - let the public decide. But here's one to ponder:

    Bus Driver Fired For Failing Drug Test, Blames Students

    from wftv.com:

    TAMPA, Fla. -- A bus driver in Tampa said her students are to blame for her positive drug test.

    Rosemary Pevy said she tested positive for marijuana because she inhales the fumes from the drug when her students ride her bus. She said she complained to the district's officials.

    Pevy has been fired, but said she won't fight the decision because it's too expensive.


    So...the students smell so strongly like marijuana when they board the bus that it actually permeates her pores and gets her, or they're actually smoking the pot while riding the bus, which of course would be up to her to keep from happening.

    By my count, I've posted nearly twenty separate instances of buffoonery, madness, spiteful intentions and general cluelessness regarding our Florida neighbors over the years, billy.

    You wanna merge 'em all?

    Personally, I honestly enjoy coming up with the headlines for the individual posts. Would you prefer I put them in this thread, or post the mundane ones here and save the truly astounding ones for separate postings?

    Your call bro, as it's your forum.

    Bus drivers don't have any authority though. You try telling a bunch of kids to stop smoking pot when you have nothing to hang over them. That's probably why she complained to the school district. Even if she tried to stop them, it probably would have ended like this:

    "Florida bus driver fired after assault on students."

    Then again, she just might like to toke up herself and is looking for an excuse. We all know bus drivers are the finest citizens around

    PS: I like them separate. I like the anticipation of going to the main page and reading the rediculous headlines and wonder if they could be true before I open it. Shockingly, the stories are usually worse than I think.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    It don't matter to me, really. It's not my forum (unless this gets kicked over to Music Only, which I'm not sure why anyone would do that!). I honestly don't know what the best way is - the thread's here now if people want to add to it, or if they don't that's their call! Never know, seenbad might decide to issue a forum-wide ban on any stories involving the citizens of Florida - he's a dick like that!

    Ooops, my apologies to seen and DIF.

    Then again, at least I did not refer to them as "dick"s.

    I've been knocking about Broward county since 1969, broken. Primarily in Plantation, Sunrise and Davie, with an odd side trip to Pompano for a couple of years.

    After Andrew in '92, this place has been on a steady nosedive, particularly Miami. Good to see that you displayed the basic common sense (that I lack, obviously ) in escaping the wasteland!

    I actually moved back to Miami and stayed for six months the year after Andrew. We arrived in Miami one year to the day after Andrew...it was amazing. I walked the zoo, or what was left of it, with a friend of mine...just shocking. We lived in Cutler Ridge, just south of Miami but after 6 months we were called back to Houston...Miami will always have a very special place in my heart, not just the family I have there and what not, but those six months were some of the most important of my life...a lot went on during that 6 months, the 6 months leading up to the move and the 6 months after...crazy crazy times...

    Default Flight from Orlando diverted after woman tries to open emergency door

    from www.orlandosentinel.com:

    DALLAS - An American Airlines flight from Orlando, Fla., to Dallas-Fort Worth was diverted to Houston on Saturday night after a passenger unsuccessfully tried to open an emergency door.

    No one was injured.

    The passenger, a woman, was detained by local authorities in Houston, said Charley Wilson, a spokesman for Fort Worth-based American.

    Flight 1585, carrying 176 passengers and six crew members, was diverted to Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport after the woman attempted to open an emergency door over one of the wings. She was subdued by the flight crew, Wilson said.

    "The crew handled everything. There was no issue with safety whatsoever," Wilson said.

    Passengers and crew members were interviewed in Houston. Six passengers got off the plane, since Houston was their destination, and the rest continued to Dallas-Fort Worth on the same plane.


    Can't wait to find out what her reasoning was - if we ever do.

    Maybe she was the aforementioned bus driver and needed a quick hit?

    Nah, she could have simply lifted a joint from one of the kids. This woman either seriously miscalculated the distance from the airborne plane to the ground in view of her exit plans (unlikely that sort of calculation was taking place inside of her skull), was so wasted she thought she could simply exit the plane like a poor movie choice ("Fuck this, I'm hitting the lobby") or, most likely, for some odd reason did not acknowledge that she was even airborne.

    Not all emotional breakdowns are terrorist actions, yet are rightly treated as such in these post 9/11 days. Unsettling a group of folk in what is basically a flying tube is pretty much frowned upon. And correctly so.
