Brickbat: Pissed Off

miggslives / photo on flickrmiggslives / photo on flickrRon Tuitt has been fired from his job as a second-grade teacher at a Paterson, New Jersey, elementary school for urinating in bottles during class and forcing students to take the bottles to the restroom and flush the contents. Court documents claim Tuitt did this at least three times a week between 2006 and 2011. Peter Tirri, president of the city's teachers union, defended Tuitt and said he was being unfairly treated because of his popularity with students.

    Ron Tiutt, urine big trouble. There are few thing bladder than making students watch you make water. And that school needs to tinkle with its screening policy for hiring teachers if this guy got in.

    Please stop excreting this sort of dilute "wit."

    The school has known for years they need to fix their hiring policies but they just hadn't got a Ron Tuitt before.

    Is the school board joking with their response? Surely, they're just trying to take the piss out of the story.

  • Bee Tagger||

    Ugh, union, not school board. Why must I ruin everything?

    Sometimes man, you jsut gotta roll with it dude.

    "Roll" with it? Like you're in a wheelchair?

    You. Fuckin'. Bastard.

    Is he the drafting teacher who wanted us to "show [him] all the blueprints"?

    Because reason doesn't care that its ad providers are redirecting its viewers to sites other than reason. Try viewing on an android or iphone. Occasionally your browser gets hijacked and goes to either the google play store or the itunes app store.

    said he was being unfairly treated because of his popularity with students.

    If forcing kids to carry bottle of your piss around makes you a popular teacher in that school, what in God's name are the unpopular teachers doing?

  • UnCivilServant||

    I wondered the same thing, but I was too afraid to ask, so the defense mechanisms in my brain called the teacher delusional.

  • db||

    Yeah, this does not compute.

    Warty and Sugarfree teach there?

  • some guy||

    I can see second graders thinking a bottle of pee is an absolutely hilarious concept.

    Pissing = popular? Right
