Only on HF are people complaining about a poor defenseless nice lady who got treated horribly getting money from caring people.The lady was the former bus driver who got relegated to bus aide due to failing vision/hearing, she is continuing to work because she enjoyed it.At 68 and still wanting to work, she has a better work ethic then 95% of the lounge.

Well in order to be cool like all the people here pissed about her getting money, I must add this...

"LOL U MAD BRO ?"

First, that's been in every newspaper article. It's not inside information to people in Rochester - it's been heavily reported on from the first day.

Second, it's not a local story, she was on Anderson Cooper, Today Show, etc..the following day. It's most certainly a national story.

It seems a lot of you are confusing emotion with reason. A lot of people are reasoning that the amount of money is ridiculous, etc... You people keep saying we're mad, or bitter or whatever, but you are all making arguments based totally on your emotional response to this thing. It makes us feel good, it makes them feel happy to give! You can't argue against feelings - we love rainbows!!!!

My point is, most of you are saying GIVE, GIVE, GIVE it's super nice, but these miscreants deserve to live horrible lives (I think your quote was "I hope bad things happen to them...."), but you know very little about either side.

Maybe these boys are being molested, maybe their parents beat them, or they're never home to make them dinner. A couple of you from Rochester may in fact know more about this, but who knows.

Maybe this old lady isn't all that nice, or wasn't when she was a kid, or maybe she was an awful parent - all most anyone knows is that she got made fun of for 10 minutes, and since she's partially deaf in both ears probably heard just enough to make her cry.

Watch an episode of Lock-Up sometimes, you'll be out of money in a couple days after seeing all the abuse they take and the donations you're going to be making shortly thereafter. I'm not talking the normal this is what we signed up for nastiness, but the really bad what they hell am I doing here stuff. I bet they cry sometimes too.

This kind of bullying happens all the time. It should be socially unacceptable but it still happens.

That said, it's a nice gesture for to step up and try to create a vacation donation for her, although the majority of people contributing are slactivists.

As I said in my previous posts, she didn't deserve to be treated like that.

Well that's a great way to solve the main issue here.

It's not, but people posting their addresses, names, and family members names online and sending them death threats is pretty extreme and goes against the gesture of the donation page to begin with.

People often get emotional about things that have happened to them and what they relate to. Everyone has been bullied at some point in their lives, some can choose to grow up and let it go, or others can get on the internet and threaten 12 year olds.

So, you've never taken the ball from another kid on the playground? Or called someone names? I call ********.

Edgy hip routine? Have you not read my previous posts? Or are you only reading what you want to?

Let me break it down, this lady was treated wrongly, she handled the situation wrong by not informing the bus driver. The kids were wrong to verbally insult and threaten her. They should be punished by their parents and the school. Their names and addresses should not have been made public. The way they have been treated by the same public that sympathizes with the old lady for being bullied screams of hypocrisy. If the Issue is bullying, make a concerted effort to stop bullying for everyone, by running the kids and their families names through the mud only makes the situation worse.

I have no problem with the money. It makes people feel good and will help the lady, but it doesn't, and it never will stop people from treating others wrongly.

This stuff happens to people everyday. That's society for you. It's disgusting. I'm not the one that gets bullied, but I see this stuff pretty much everyday at school.

we are in a generation now where people of all ages demand respect. i guarantee that lady was a mean old bitty, so why should the kids give her any respect? i dont care how old you are or what you think you are entitled to, if you treat me like dirt i will treat you the same.

LOL. Yeah, I'm sure she was threatening to stab those poor kids and mocked the suicides of their family members.

You really think someone has to be a "mean old bitty" or just something nasty in general to be harassed and treated like crap by a group of snotty kids?

Just looking at the woman, besides being old, she's overweight and looks like she doesn't exactly buy her clothes at Nordstrom. In my day, that would be enough for some d-bag of a kid to make fun of her, although not to her face. That seems to be a new development in this day and age.

The only "guarantee" worth making was that they harassed the **** out of her. It's on tape, and she didn't fight back. Where your pulling this from, I don't know.
