The 'oh come off it' story of the month

CBC report that:
'Quebec girl told to stop reading book by school bus driver
Sarah Auger, 8, enjoyed reading to and from school, until the bus driver said it was dangerous
Kate McKenna, CBC News 
An eight-year-old girl in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que. was told she's no longer allowed to read books on the school bus because it poses a risk to the safety of other students.
Sarah Auger loves reading and used to enjoy using her 20-minute ride to and from school to read for pleasure.

But recently, her bus driver told her she had to stop.

She says she was told reading posed a risk to other students on the bus.

He suggested they might stand up to see what she was reading, or she might poke herself in the eye with the corners of the book. '
Seriously? Oh come off it.
