Would You Hire This “Idiot”?

Background Check Idiot

We all do dumb things.  If you ask my wife, she’ll tell you I do them every day. Well, thank goodness I’ve never been brought in front of a judge to answer for my idiocy like this Ohio woman who was sentenced to hold up a sign proclaiming  that she was an idiot.  The punishment couldn’t have been more fitting for her offense.  On multiple occasions she drove up on a school sidewalk around a bus that was loading special needs children.

According to WJW Fox 8, Shena Hardin, 32, of Cleveland pleaded guilty to not stopping for a school bus and reckless operation. A Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered her driver’s license suspended for 30 days and ordered her to pay $250 in court costs.

As part of the sentence, Hardin must also must wear a sign that reads, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid the school bus” for an hour a day for two days next week at the intersection where the incident occurred, according to Fox 8.

Now, if you were an employer and this woman applied for a job, that would be one entertaining employment background check.
