A Couple High School Basketball Coaches In Oklahoma Were Fired For Using A School Bus To Make A Beer Run
TheComeback- Two high school basketball coaches in Tishomingo, Oklahoma have been fired from Tishomingo High School after using a school bus to go buy alcohol.
The two men purchased beer during an out-of-town trip with the team, according to KFOR: “It sort of just disappointed us all,” basketball player Kyle Miller told reporters.
The team was at a basketball camp at Connors State College in nearby Warner, Oklahoma, about two and a half hours from home. While there, the beer run took place at a local convenience store.
What the coaches did was completely wrong, but they were smart enough to not bring minors along for the ride with them.
“We noticed that the school bus was gone but he had told us to stay in our dorms and so we proceeded to do that and we just didn’t find anything out until the next day,” Miller said.
If the players didn’t know where the coaches were going and the coaches didn’t bring anyone along, how exactly did Tishomingo High School officials find out? According to KXII, someone who worked at the convenience store reported the coaches to officials at Connors State.
“We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go to that camp, because we had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day,” Miller said.
Ahhh, the casual reminder that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Slightly weird that it took a bunch of grown men hijacking a school bus to cruise for some booze when they were supposed to be watching over minors for me to truly appreciate that semi-nonsensical saying, but - hey - here we are I suppose.
The fact of the matter is that sometimes you just need beer, and it's during those times when you'll do literally anything to get it. I would think that a (hypocritical) high schooler like Kyle Miller would understand that as he has surely benefited from plenty of fake ID's and unlocked liquor cabinets, but such is the selfishness of our youth. Little assholes can't just look in the mirror, picture themselves 20 years older, and equally as desperate for alcohol. Just too in their own world to realize that social anxiety that can only be cured by substance abuse isn't something that you grow out of. In fact, I could argue that the only people more in need of beer than awkward teenagers that are trying to touch each other's privates is school officials that just completed a day of making sure that the stupid children of others didn't die.
Now, they probably should have parked their predominantly scholastic mode of transportation around the corner to avoid a visual that surely looked like kids lying in wait of their questionable supervision while taking up half a liquor store parking lot, but that's not the point. The point is that feeling compelled to do what it takes to guarantee yourself a well deserved drink is a desire as natural as the one that's ultimately responsible for the bitchy, ungrateful kids that were tasked with staying out of trouble for 15 minutes. And If you ask me, these coaches didn't need some snitch ass, bitch ass of a liquor store clerk to take time away from selling eventual DUI's in Podunk County, Oklahoma to insert himself in that all-too-prevelant process.
