    It's not really funny... it's messed up that they are allowed to sell more seats than they have available.

    The 'real story' here for me is the company's high frequency of public relations disasters, not so much this single incident..

    I don't know what it is about train tracks that turns people's brains off, but at least 6 times a year, someone misses this turn coming out of Mulgrave and winds up on the tracks. There are no fewer than 5 signs warning people of the turn, tracks, and road ending. I'm dreading the day someone huts a train.

    United: We committed the biggest PR fuckup of any major company this year.

    Fire this sexistbitch immediately and put her ass on trial for abusing taxpayer dollars to influence sexism in children and discrimination based on sex.

    I assumed this was satire :lol: Googled and it appears to be real (from 2015) but the school issued a statement saying it was out of context, the practice was discontinued etc and the teacher apologized. No word if she was ever fired but I didn't dig any further

    I have friends who live on Bainbridge Island (it's a ferry ride from downtown Seattle) who told me about this when it happened (article is from 2015). It was all treated as a big joke at the time - the "Bainbridge Island Review" is essentially the equivalent of any (really) small town news rag that includes reports on who was eating at what restaurant on Friday night.
