    Meanwhile my HS is in an uproar. A teacher was arrested for possession and sale of pot and mushrooms out of his house. If you remember, our AP was caught with pot in his car last June. He said it was someone else's. Apparently this teacher went to the concert with him, so he was likely not lying.

    The worst part of this story is that the teacher got caught because a neighbor of his died of a heart attack after taking mushrooms bought from this guy.

    We teachers are being fried in the press.

    Gheese, when it rains it pours. I'm with you on hating car salespersons. What ever happened to the AP? It sounds like he got screwed by the other teacher.

    The AP is back at work this year in his original position. He would not give up the name of his passenger at the time. Hopefully this will help him in the end. I assume he paid a fine for possession and is on probation.

    Wow, some crazy stuff, Paula. Never heard of someone dying off magical mushrooms, but then again I never really delved into the matter much.

    WRT the car business, yeah, I think being slimy is a job requirement. Have you checked into other ways to finance? 15%+ is crazy, unless you can afford to pay extra each month to reduce the final finance charges. Most CUs will have personal loans or revolving service loans with rates ~11%-13%, which at least is a little better. A little riskier... you could do a home equity loan and get great rates, but if you miss any payments you're jacked. The nice thing there though is that your monthly payment would be lower than the $300 the car dude originally quoted, and again, you could always pre-pay to get it off the books sooner. Home equity rates are very reasonable right now (~4% for a 5-year loan... would NOT suggest a 10-year).

    I'm glad he is back at work. That said, I hope he never expects a student to give up the name of anyone who helped them cheat etc.

    Thanks FW.
    Well, my bank is a credit union. I have applied for a mortgage a refi and a previous car loan and they have denied me each time. I have then gone to another bank and gotten what I needed. They lost my business.
    The poor credit rating is totally my fault, I get that, but for once I hope they have something good to say.

    The guy who died was 38. An autopsy is being performed now. The teacher better hope he had a bad heart. At least then the charge could be involuntary manslaughter.

    I am in shock. I have worked closely with this man.

    Holy Crap! Used to hear about the possibility of deadly mushrooms, but that was when we were immortal (late teens) and never gave it a second thought. Geez.

    Oh my.. sorry for all the troubles lately. Sometimes when it rains it pours.

    You know in regards to the teacher issue.. teachers and misbehaviors are in the news more and more. I can not log onto a website for news and NOT see a story where one or more have made a grave error in judgement. It reflects badly on all of us and it ticks me off. Hang in there. I read the article from your link and your right, the AP might be exonerated for this.
