George Costanza was a veritable master at getting fired from his job, but even Jerry Seinfeld’s neurotic and self-absorbed pal would likely admit that this stunt was ill-advised.
Two high school basketball coaches in Oklahoma were recently fired after the pair was caught driving the school bus in an effort to purchase beer, KFOR.com reports. The Tishomingo High School team was attending a basketball camp at Connors State when the coaches apparently realized the teenaged party was missing some adult beverages.
“We noticed that the school bus was gone but he had told us to stay in our dorms and so we proceeded to do that and we just didn’t find anything out until the next day,” said Tishomingo basketball player Kyle Miller. “It sort of just disappointed us all.”
As the story goes, a clerk at the store where the coaches purchased the beer was reportedly concerned when two men driving a school bus purchased alcohol. The clerk reported the men to officials at Connors State, where alcohol is strictly prohibited on campus grounds.
The two coaches were fired immediately once Tishomingo school officials were notified, and the team was forced to leave the basketball camp a day early.
“We were pretty upset because we paid money out of pocket to go to that camp, because we had to stay for three nights and we had to end up leaving on the second day,” Miller told KFOR.com.
