Clown Car

In today's age, just because you think you might be doing a good thing, doesn't mean you won't lose your job for it.

Via NY Daily News:

An Oklahoma middle school math teacher was fired Wednesday after she made a snack run with 11 students in her car — including two in the trunk.

Heather Cagle's fuzzy math and poor judgment led to her dismissal by the Catoosa School Board after she was suspended with pay Oct. 23, two days after her ill-advised snack run, the Tulsa World reported.

It took five minutes for the students, members of the school's yearbook, to cram into the teacher's Honda Accord, a road trip fail caught on school surveillance video. Two 12-year-old girls made the journey locked in the car's trunk while seven more created a human pyramid in the back seat, the school said.

Going on a snack run for some kids? Sure, ok, harmless enough. Cramming 11 in the car and two in the trunk? Hmmm.

I'm not sure that firing her was the right outcome, because I'm pretty sure she'd never do anything like that again, but still, she didn't leave the school board much of an option.
