  •  But I just punched my coworker in the face* and (8+ / 0-)

    I admit it was a mistake, so why should I be fired? technically, it is assault.  But technically alot of things are assualt.  If we demand a person to be fired at every little mistake the none of us would be working--admit it, we all make mistakes.

    *I did not actually punch anyone, but your argument works just as well for punching a coworker in the face.

    •  well, let's take it to the extreme here (6+ / 0-)

      I will do it because taking something to the absurd is one of my few talents:

      "I just shot my supervisor 17 times.  I admit it was a mistake, so why should I be fired? technically, it is assault.  But technically a lot of things are assault.  If we demand a person to be fired at every little mistake the none of us would be working--admit it, we all make mistakes."

        calling it a mistake or little is taking it to the extreme in the other way imo.

        this child was MOCKED by a teacher in front of other students. This is an "ok" to students that this student can be targetted and that it's funny. Especially if he is not fired.

        Now all the students will feel free to target him with "jokes" like dumping his books etc.

        Those of you who can't seem to understand how this would have felt to the kid (his year is likely ruined socially) must have had a relatively easy time in school socially or were not scarred by it. Some people are in fact scarred for life by school bullying.

        the teacher led the way. Teacher is suppose to protect this disabled (ie vulnerable) student. What a collosal betrayal.

        •  you do realize that what I posted was snark (0+ / 0-)

          and was cut and pasted from another poster's comments with edits by myself?

          •  I didn' t question that possibility (0+ / 0-)

            until after I posted sorry. I wish there was a way we cold deleate comments (generally).

            I read the whole thing twice it was hard to follow. I realized later the conversation went on hours ago. I'll do a better job at checking times so I dont jump into an old conversation...it's too hard to follow sometimes.

            •  no problem; at times my snark is a bit esoteric (0+ / 0-)

              and given problems I have at times with comprehension it is hard to follow me at those times.  To follow it, you had to have followed the whole thread and realized it was all snark, with my piggybacking on a previous bit of snark.

              My bad for not being clearer
