Bus Driver

I heard it through the grapevine

Imagine that you are responsible for hiring a bus driver for one of your school district's elementary schools. You have interviewed several people and are quite sure that you have found the perfect candidate. You call him back for a second interview and introduce him to the other people in the transportation department. When he leaves, one of your co-workers approaches you and says, "Are you going to hire that guy?" When you say you probably will, the co-worker says, "He used to live in my neighborhood. He was a really big drinker back then."
