Something about me being so fat and ugly your kids probably should commit suicide. I don’t think they knew my son had … I wanted to punch them is what I wanted to do. So that’s why I laid back, tried to ignore it. Because I really wanted to hurt them, you know? You can’t do that!

Greece, N.Y. bus monitor Karen Klein • Discussing her anger with the students who relentlessly berated her in a hard-to-watch video that went viral yesterday. (Particularly with how they said her kids should kill themselves; her son had committed suicide ten years prior.) Despite her anger, she held off, choosing not to fight back despite the unbelievably mean things they were saying to her. After the video went viral, someone started a charity drive to send her on vacation which also went viral. Klein, a former bus driver, makes roughly $15,000 a year as a bus monitor; the charity drive, thus far, has raised $164,821 (and climbing), which might do more than send her on vacation — it might allow her to quit her job. Which, based on that video, might be a good idea. (via sea-bear-joan)

“If you think fat people have no self control, consider the fact that they haven’t KILLED you… Yet.”
