This is a message that Candy Tistadt, wife of Fairfax County Schools chief administrator Dean Tistadt, left on a student’s voicemail. The student, Dave Kori, had called the Tistadts’ home to ask why the schools hadn’t been closed on Thursday in light of the snow.
During Mrs. Tistadt’s minute-long, shrill tirade, she whines about her husband’s frequent “meetings for snotty-nosed little brats” and shrieks, “Get over it, kid, and go to school!”
Mrs. Tistadt, you owe the taxpayers of Fairfax County an apology. Your husband is a public servant. Your shrill scolding of a student, presumably the son of taxpayers like me who pay your husband’s salary, is completely out of line. If you don’t want your husband to spend his time on matters concerning those you consider “snotty-nosed little brats”, encourage him to pursue another line of work. Or “get over it”.
