Women With Hyphenated Names

For the Patron Saint's Name of Frick.

I love how she blames her blood pressure on the children and not her FAT ASS!

Keep going ladies.  Keep hyphenating your names.  It's a nice big warning sign to the rest of us.

I automatically assume that anyone with a hyphenated name is from red-diaper-baby heritage - with the exception of old British hyphenated names, and to the extent that Brits can be trusted.

ps. Your coffee shop series is great. You're venting the rage that I feel regularly :)

I agree.

I also agree about the hyphenated names.

Apparently her $80,000 salary simply was not enough.

A school teacher suing because she's afraid of students? WTF is that? A new disability? If she's afraid of students why the hell is she a teacher? Who does she expect to teach? Can I sue because I'm afraid of computers? Because I'm afraid of cubicles or office furniture? Just look at the stupid grin on her face. Are we supposed to take her seriously? Ugh.

Why is somebody with a fear of children a teacher of children? That's just twisted.

Teacher sues because school district won't accommodate her fear of children. I want to be a nurse, but I have a fear of needles. Can I still get the job?

About as funny as when Frank Sinatra avoided the draft by claiming he had an irrational fear of crowds, just before he went off to give concerts to arenas with thousands of manic bobbysoxers at a time.

Don't forget us Spanish descended people, we all have two last names.

"Waltherr-Willard, who does not have children of her own..."

"She wants money," Winters said of Walter-Willard's motivation to sue.

IMAGINE THAT.

Just take solace in the fact that when the shit hits the streets in this country she'll be amongst the first to parish, along with all the others like here. I can't wait!!

Clearly she's nuts. She called the termination of a French language program "the beginning of a deliberate, systematic and calculated effort to squeeze her out of a job altogether" in a complaint to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Can you imagine having to work with this person? Someone who apparently believes that everything that doesn't go her way is a conspiracy? Since when is anyone entitled to a job, anyway? Most people can be fired for no reason at all, and this woman's litigious outburst and paranoid outlook is just evidence of what a good idea at-will employment really is. Sadly, the teacher's union makes it extremely difficult to fire a long term teacher no matter how incompetent they are, unless they get caught having sex with a student.

Even if her allegations of a conspiracy to deprive her of a job are true, I certainly can't fault the school district for doing anything they can to try to get rid of her.

Picture the scene: in an abandoned parking lot by the baseball field, a cabal of educational administrators and faculty meets in secret under the cover of darkness to discuss a plot so foul that even mentioning it by light of day would seem like a taunt to God himself. The superintendent adjusts his suspenders and breaks the uneasy silence. "We must use any and all means at our disposal to rid ourselves of this awful harpy, even if it means... MAKING HER TEACH 8TH GRADERS!" A chorus of gasps arises from the shadowed faces of those in attendance. In the back row, an art teacher faints from the shock and crumples to the asphalt as though dead.

I don't remember any of my grade school teachers being such a worthless turd.

Does it ever occur to these hyphenated harpies that the name they're born with is their FATHER'S name?
