Seattle, WA (AHN) - A school bus driver, whose name has not been released, was fired for allegedly flipping her middle finger at President Bush's motorcade with students aboard last June. This week, according to an AP report, the woman filed a union grievance to get her job back.
The 43-year-old bus driver was bringing students home from a field trip to a local zoo when a motorcade carrying President Bush and Republican Dave Reichert overtook them.
Students extended their arms from the windows to wave at the presidential motorcade. According to reports, Bush and Reichert waved back.
But the driver to the school bus extended an less than hospitable middle finger at the passing entourage, said Reichert and Issaquah superintendent Janet Barry who learned of the event after the driver allegedly boasted about the encounter and the finger incident to colleagues.
According to Reichert spokesperson Kimberly Cadena, "The congressman hadn't seen it, but the President turned to him and said, 'That one's not a fan.'"
If you read teh rest of the article, she wasn't really terminated because of giving Bush the finger, it was doing it in front of a bus full of kids.
I agree with that, but I think it's hilarious that the president was flipped off.
