Beano Just Wasn’t Enough


I had a student at the middle school level who had an unfortunate digestive problem that caused eye watering, literally incapacitating, room emptying flatulence. He could empty a table in the lunch room, cause a call to Service Master and increase the sales of  mentholated tissues and Febreeze on a local level. Middle school students are not good at ignoring flatulence and his production was so evil that students would literally get sick from the malodorous emanations. Scott eventually agreed that any time he had to pass gas he was to get it out into the hall. It was quite a sight to see students and teachers who upon seeing Scott in the hall would reverse their path and find another way. When Scott was in art class, which was by the drinking fountain and the bottom of the stair well the water bill went down, people in the office two floors above became teary eyed, and I am sure that after only one treatment the nearby wooden stairwell probably held the only pieces of termite free wood in the lower level of the building.

I  fervently hope that Scott has gotten help or found a well paying job somewhere making catfish bait.

About safrisri

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
