Has snitching gone too far?
On my way home from work today, I heard an interview on the radio with a lady stating that she had complained about a bus driver who had stopped his bus at the liquor store where he made a purchase. Although this is against OC Transpo policy, it was also explained that bus drivers are permitted to stop their bus at a store to use the washroom or buy a coffee or presumably make any other purchase. It was also explained that the bus was empty.
To me, although this was a violation of policy, I don't really see why this was even newsworthy, let alone, meriting a radio interview. After all, it is not as if the bus driver was caught drinking liquor on the bus. I frankly don't care if the bus driver picked up a bottle of wine for dinner. He didn't even inconvenience any passengers.
We should not be encouraging such minor complaints and we should not be blowing things out of proportion.
