When nature calls, a man’s just gotta’ answer!
According to this story in the Detroit Free Press, school board president Otis Mathis took a short pause for the cause during a recent school board meeting. No, really.
DPS police were investigating allegations by schools Superintendent Teresa Gueyser that during a meeting at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, Mathis touched himself for 20 minutes, then unzipped his pants.
Gueyser, in a memorandum to the board, said she ended the meeting.
“I told him that there was no reason for us to continue the meeting with that behavior,” she said.
Look, I was as bored in school as anyone. But not THAT bored. Our hero claims he has medical issues that “may have” contributed to “the incident.”
I simply cannot imagine any professional situation – school related or otherwise – where someone could believe that this was appropriate behavior to engage in.
Then again, we are talking about a man here.
