A crossing guard for a British school said he quit after officials threatened to suspend him. Sixty-five year old Bob Slade said he quit his job as a crossing guard (at Manadon Vale Primary School in Plymouth, England) when the Plymouth, England, city council threatened to suspend him for four weeks for giving out high-fives to the crossing children.
