The Venting Booth The Venting Booth

I find this offensive...anyone else?

Posted by   + Show Post

 I live in a small town. The school district has decided to place pictures of animals on their busses so that the smaller kids that cannot read numbers know which bus is theirs For example bus 123-Cat or Bus 321-Dog...

This morning I was at a redlight and I see a short bus (the bus used to transport the handicap and special needs children) and the picture of the animal is a fucking TURTLE! Now I don't know if this was intentional but I found that to be extremely offensive towards special needs...

(I worked for the state training special needs adults and evaluating behaviors so this is offensive to me and I think it should be removed, it's rude.)

Why?  It's just a turtle for Pete's sake!  WHY is it offensive?

I think you're reading too much into it.

Why can't they just teach children how to read numbers?
It's a bus number it's not that hard.

Actually because of what the turtle represents I think it is beautiful!

Turtles are beautiful, graceful animals. Yes they may be slow on the ground but oh how fast they are in water. I would find nothing offensive about it.

Lol how ridiculous. Its a turtle. I am sure there wasn't any harm meant. I wouldn't even second guess it if it wasn't for this post. The things people get worked up over.....

If a turtle on a school bus is your biggest issue of the day, I'd venture to say you've got it good.
