We’ve all had those days where we want to get drunk at work. I get it. Things are stressful, you’re staying late and the call of the bottle is louder than ever.
For Arizona math teacher Kathleen Jardine, it was apparently best to start, not end, her day with a bottle of wine, half a bottle of vodka and an unidentified bottle of orange drink. The woman must be a walking alcohol bottle, because damn that is a lot of liquor to start the day. Of course, her slurring and yelling alerted her students that something was off, and police confirmed their suspicions when it turned out her BAC was over .20. That’s a hell of a thirsty Thursday, Mrs. Jardine.
Adding to the complicated mess that was her Wednesday and Thursday was the fact that she had to take a taxi to school because her car was impounded for DUI the night before. Ouch. I think the local sheriff summed the entire mess up best though:
“Learning math can be hard enough, I can’t imagine trying to learn it from a drunk teacher,” said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu in a statement.
Next time, just wait for the weekend before getting too drunk to teach math. It can’t be that hard to deal with high school kids.
