This is simply disgusting. A teacher is suing the city after she slipped and fell on condoms and other garbage scattered across the floor in the High School of Art and Design. Educator Karen Hollander says she injured her head and nervous system after losing her balance on the offending prophylactics in the Second Avenue school's cafeteria last November.
She is blaming the Department of Education for failing to tidy up after handing out the rubbers to students. "They caused, allowed and permitted condoms to be distributed by school personnel to the students, many of which were opened during the school lunch period and thrown on the floor," says the suit. Thankfully, it sound like the condoms hadn't been used in the traditional way, though according to the Daily News, the mess did include "slippery foreign substances."
