    I agree , there is no almost about it. I feel for her,in a job she hates but I hate my job too . Kids can be like sharks that smell blood. Thanks for posting, I hadn’t the video. I had been curious about it. One of the guys at work said that those kids were receiving death threats and Disney World had given her a free vacation. p.s. I’ll come join you screaming at kids for free.

      Although I joked about it myself a bit there, now the kids are getting death threats? Apparently the “no bullying” message didn’t quite sink in.
      I’ll set up a lawn chair for you. Bring the cocktails. 🙂

    I agree that it was a cruel thing that those children did, but at the same time, WTF? This stuff happens all the time, and if YouTube and the like had been around when I was younger, half of my middle school classmates would be paying me out for a lawsuit.

    But bullying in general is just cruel–for adults or children–and I agree that something has to be done. It just seems that the money could have been used for something a bit more “worthy,” so to speak. Perhaps I’m a little out of line, but just paying people off rubs me the wrong way (unless I were to receive compensation, of course.)

      I thought the “Let’s get her a vacation” was a cute idea. She, like the rest of us (and quite possibly more than a lot of us) could use one. But when the numbers were at $50,000, $200,000, $500,000 — who said, “$500,000? That seems reasonable. I should kick in another $20…”

        Exactly. Vacation to an island? Neat. An island? Extreme.

    I’m not clear about what her responsibility as a bus monitor is. Isn’t the point to keep those kids in line? If there’s a bus monitor, isn’t there some kind of policy involving punishment/consequences she had the power to use, like you mentioned? The whole thing confuses me.

    I absolutely hate bullying. I think the better solution would be for Disney World to levy a lifetime ban on those kids and all future offspring. Like The Hunger Games but amusement park attendance-related.

      Exactly. What the kids did was HORRIBLE and I’d like to hang them all by their obnoxious little haircuts for their behavior (or maybe just their WONDERFUL parents.) But they shouldn’t hire monitors who burst into tears when a kid calls them fat. They should hire monitors that report the little brats and make their lives as miserable as they tried to make the monitor’s. Make SOME attempt to teach them a lesson; otherwise you’re just a seat warmer.

      I imagine the position is free now, though.

    Why can’t I get bullied and go to the Virgin Islands for three months? Damn.

    I think she should every last cent on making the lives of those brats completely miserable. That’s what I’d do (or at least that’s what I’m saying I’d do…I’d probably end up in the Caribbean yelling at skinny bitches to bring me more mimosas.)

      Don’t forget their parents! At least a good $400,000 should go towards making the parents miserable. They’re probably more miserable now because they’re embarrassed by what their kids did then they are over the fact they clearly have failed their children.
      Mimosas? Morning drinker. *high five*

    You are right, what about their parents??? Man, who was that said something about .. instead of making the world a little better for our kids, how about making our kids a little better for our world….
