Saw this while driving this week. We were stopped at a red light. Oftentimes, I read people's bumper stickers and chuckle but I thought these were just rude. What message is the driver sending? That he or she is a jerk? In case you can't read them, one reads "blow me" and the other reads "Horn broken. Watch for finger."
HOWEVER, when you sign on to work in an organization that frowns on it AND agree through your teaching contract that you will adhere by the rules, there is no need to try to fight it. Find another job that better suits your lifestyle. As a mom, I can sympathize with her situation but I also think if the job doesn't suit your needs, move on!!! This was certainly not the first case of this happening and it wouldn't be the last. People chose employees who represent their business. Likewise, employees should choose jobs that represent who they are.
This case really reminds me of the saying "next to football, going to court is America's favorite sport."
Then there is this Cheerios commercial with the little girl who is also featured again this year's Superbowl ad. I am glad Cheerios stuck to their guns of using the same interracial child. I didn't even notice the girl's race until I saw the commercial on TV during the Superbowl. Yes she looked interracial but the message of the commercial was what got me laughing and NOT her race. People need to move on. Kids are kids regardless of their race and this one certainly does NOT deserve the criticism. Everyone has a little bit of something different in them. Its what makes us all unique and beautiful.
Have a safe and blessed weekend! Be kind to strangers. A smile might just be what changes a bad situation into a bright one.
