Newsday has a story about a school bus driver who says he nearly lost his job because he refused to take off his Santa Claus cap while driving his route.
After completing his morning route on Thursday, Kenneth Mott said his supervisors called and demanded that he take off his Santa hat.
Mott said he was told that a parent of a child complained to the district about his headgear, saying that their child doesn't believe in Santa Claus and therefore was bothered by the hat. If that's true then let the little looney be driven to school by the parental unit(s) that encourage such antisocial behavior and allow the rest of the children to enjoy themselves.
"I said, 'What, are you kidding me?,'" Mott recalled. "I thought it was a big joke."
He resolved to keep his hat on that afternoon.
"Nobody is going to tell me what I can do and can't do," said Mott, who added that he doesn't pretend to be Santa Claus while driving, nor does he play Christmas carols or decorate his bus. "This is America. I'm not hurting anybody." Amen, Mr. Mott, amen!
It seems the dispute turns out to be a big misunderstanding, as is always the excuse when the secularist politically correct cretins get caught with their legal pants down. Those who tried to intimidate Mr. Mott will escape unscathed and try to ruin someone else's good time down the road.
