Re: More White Female Teachers Screwing Students

A woman I dated some years back said her ex-husband had trouble keeping it in his pants because women would throw themselves at him because of his uniform. He was a NYC bus driver. A BUS DRIVER. A cop or fireman I could maybe understand women hitting on, but a bus driver??? Yeah, they're all crazy.
