A happy ending to a terrible ordeal.
The school bus monitor who was bullied by middle-school meanies is getting the last laugh, after online well-wishers donated more than $400,000 to send her on a dream vacation.
The 23-year school vet is considering a Disney cruise for the whole family.
Karen Klein, a 68-year-old widow, had some words yesterday for the parents of the middle-school meanies whose gibes reduced her to tears.
“I’m sorry that your sons acted the way they did,” she said on NBC’s “Today” show. “I’m sure they don’t act that way at home, but you never know what they’re going to do when they’re out of the house. They should’ve been taught to respect their elders no matter who it is.”
By now, you have heard the story of bus monitor Karen Klein and how she was horribly bullied by a busload of kids on a trip in Greece, NY.
Reddit user Max Sidorov of Toronto started a fundraiser for Klein after he heard of her salary of $15,506.
The site has pulled in more than $300,000!!!! And it keeps climbing. News of Klein’s experience has gone viral.
According to CBSNews, “Police said Karen Klein does not want her young tormenters to face criminal charges, partly because of the storm of criticism leveled at the boys from the Rochester suburb of Greece after the video went viral.”
And according to CNN, the children heard in the video are receiving death threats from others.
Death threats? Stop it people, they’re stupid middle-schoolers. They should feel guilty and embarrassed and should be shunned and berated by their families, friends, and school mates, yes. They should be punished by the school system, definitely. But threatening kids with death is going too far.
