Psychic school bus driver refused to drive children to school

Wow.

A psychic bus driver has been sacked after he refused to pick up children because of a ‘premonition’

A PSYCHIC bus driver has been sacked after refusing to pick up schoolchildren – because had a “premonition” that something bad would happen.

The clairvoyant driver, who has not been named, left the children standing at the side of the road in Dundee.

After he explained that a psychic premonition led to him to leave children at the roadside, the driver was promptly dismissed.

The man insisted he left the children at the roadside because he sensed “something bad would happen”.

Something bad did happen. The kids didn’t get to school on time.

The bus driver will fight his dismissal.

But when you’re employed to provide a public service, like driving a school bus, you should do your job. A feeling that something bad might happen is not a good excuse to not drive your clients to their destination, in this case, getting kids to school.

    And yet they repeatedly support his claims through omission. The call him psychic and clairvoyant without clarification. Substitute the word “invisible” and decide if you think they’d have written the story the same way.

    That driver might very well be delusional, but he did put the kids’ wellbeing above his own job security.
    Just saying…

    Well, this proves it, doesn’t it? All the children are safe, so he was right. That’s how it works, right? Right? cough cough
