When this guy was 13 years old, he was going through that awkward stage in life where everything was changing constantly. One thing that was changing was the amount of gas in his body.
His French Teacher Wasn’t Putting Up With It
His French teacher, Mrs. Fabre, regularly puts kids in detention over everything. While some were justified, like talking in class and not doing homework, the man felt Mrs. Fabre’s reasoning for putting him in detention was ridiculous.
Trying to Escape Undetected
He tried everything to avoid getting into trouble with Mrs. Fabre, from staying at the back of the class by a nearby open window to asking his parents if they could have something less likely to bring on flatulence.
Getting in Trouble Regularly
Despite his efforts, the situation escalated, and he was regularly given detention despite no obvious discipline issues.
Keeping It All Under Wraps
For a while, the man kept his detentions hidden, because both of his parents worked until after he got home anyway, and he thought his parents couldn’t do anything about it.
The Secrets Came Out on His Birthday
Everything came to a head when he was put into after-school detention on his 14th birthday.
His parents always made a fuss about his birthdays, because it was close to Christmas, and they knew that he liked a day when he could pick anything for dinner and anything to do all night long.
His Detention Was Going to Ruin Everything
This detention was scheduled to last for two hours, so there was no way he was getting home before his parents did.
His parents were unhappy when they found out that he had been losing break times, lunchtimes, and hours of his home life to Mrs. Fabre’s insanity in her efforts to get them to stop farting.
Mom Finds Out Everything
They planned to go out for dinner at an Italian restaurant, as his favorite food is lasagna.
His father failed to get the money back on the reservation or change the time, so his mother was unhappy when she found out everything about why he was in detention and how much time he had spent in it.
Mom Plans Her Revenge
The following day, after his birthday, his mother took the day off work, and they were called into the school office to sit-down with Mrs. Fabre and the principal.
A Meeting With the Principal
The man let his mother speak first, and his mother talked about how much money the family had spent getting him home from school.
He couldn’t take the 3 o’clock bus his bus pass covered, and she had to spend close to $15 a week getting them home.
Mom Wants to Be Compensated
She then added the cost of her workday that she had to take off, and the reservation they lost on the man’s birthday.
Then, his mother did something unexpected. She pulled out a stack of bus tickets, receipts, and a pay stub from work, showcasing the expenses she had to bear while sending her child to school.
She questioned whether the school or the teacher would compensate her for the cost.
Mrs. Fabre Is Faced With an Ultimatum
The total expenditure, which included bus tickets, a lost reservation, and a day’s pay, amounted to around $250.
The principal intervened and assured his mother that she did not need to worry about the expenses. Mrs. Fabre would be responsible for reimbursing her before the end of the day if she wanted to keep her job.
Forced to Pay the Fine
Mrs. Fabre, visibly angry, agreed to pay his mother from her paycheck. The school office handed over the money, which the woman used to buy extra Christmas presents for her two children.
