It seems everyday we are treated to actions by some people which defy belief. Sadly, most of these actions are done by stupid criminals. Whether it’s getting caught in an air conditioning vent when you are trying to rob a convenience store or getting your drug laden SUV stuck on a ramp as you try to cross a Mexican-American border fence, there are a lot of stories of dumb things people do in the act of committing a crime.
But apparently criminals are not the only people doing really stupid things. Just imagine you are the parent of a child in kindergarten. You send your child to school expecting him or her to be in good hands, and normally that’s the case. But then again, can you ever really be sure? Maybe not.
A teacher in Norway was recently fired after she brought a vial of her own blood to class, poured it onto a plate and let the children touch it with their bare fingers. Horrified? Wait, it gets better. When one of the kids asked the teacher how they should remove the blood from their fingers, she put her fingers to her mouth… and the children did the same. THEY LICKED THE TEACHERS BLOOD OFF THEIR FINGERS.
Was there ever a time in history where this would have been considered acceptable behavior? In the 21st century when the thought of even a health care worker touching someone else’s blood is unnerving, we have an educator allowing five year-olds to touch and taste her blood. What if you were the parent of one of these kids? Chances are you would still be screaming.
Of course, the authorities are awaiting test results on her blood for AIDS and Hepatitis.
So at this point you ask, how could a teacher be that stupid? And if she is that stupid, what the hell was she doing teaching these kids?
Makes you stop and think doesn’t it?
