Poor kid, btw. Forever known as the kid that got suspended over having the poots.
you can`t tell John Locke what he can`t do!!
(this was a while ago btw. You cant smoke on buses any more in this country)
That`s what the report said. I would have insisted that my son be allowed back on the bus. Farting is not something you can always control, and to kick someone off the bus for it is inexcusable.
Then again, the report did say that these kids go to a last chance school....
It`s pretty freaking insulting when you get kicked off a bus for putting other students in danger for your fart. XD
No, bit really, that`s probably one of the stupidest things I`ve ever heard. There are kids who`ve PUKED on buses and they don`t get kicked off.
Without using fish, you mean?
I question the maturity of the authoritySeriously, it`s like slapping each other for no reason
I, personally, question the existence of a brain in any staff of that school. Not one of them thought that this was no reason for a suspension?
Hell, last I checked, farting doesn`t crash a bus. Farting doesn`t involve calling 911 at any point in time that I know of...
This school bus driver needs to lighten up, So do the school principals.
"Here, get this prescription filled", says the Doc.
"But that`s a nasal spray and ear drops!", she says.
"Yes", says the Doc. "First we`ll sort out your nose and hearing, then we`ll deal with the flatulence..."
If this kid was passing gas on purpose and won`t admit it, he`s an attention seeker. Isn`t practically every teenager?
If this kid was laughing the loudest at the "other" person he claims passed gas, then yeah, he deserves the punishment.
Bus drivers have to have a resonable volume from their passengers. If a bus driver has to continually babysit people who can`t conduct themselves reasonably, then it`s up to the bus driver to stop what they`re doing and remind the passengers.
But to be suspended? Um....I don`t know. I think of my old school bus driver. She`d strike the fear in you if you got out of line far more than anything the school administration could. LOL Trust me. I pushed her once. Never did it again.
I`m almost positive the kid leaned over and forced it out to make it as loud as possible and then made a big show of it.
I do like the that bus driver wrote on the report that the fart made it hard to breath. Must have been pretty heinous.
Also, I`m getting sick of these news reports and their half-assed puns. "His dad thinks the punishment STINKS, durrhurrhurr!"
And I assume this was a slow day...
On a side note, those are some of the fanciest school buses I`ve ever seen.
come on give him a chance, his dad died as Jeremy Bentham, and then came back to life on an island....i think he can fart all he wants
Now, if I were ever punished in school for it, I can assure you that that school would be hearing from my lawyer, as discrimination and punishment towards someone with an uncontrollable medical ailment is highly illegal.
To punish someone for the natural functions of their body is ridiculous, and because some think that those functions are funny, is not reason for punishment.
Although, I guess this reaction stems from the same reason people don`t like to hear that they are going to die. Reality is not some Disneyfied world where everything is perfect and good. Reality has many things about it that we don`t really like, and it doesn`t give a damn about our opinion.
Oh BWAHAHAHA! Oh local news, you slay me with your obvious puns. Wait, no you don`t.
On a related note, I don`t want to live in a country where I can`t fart on a bus and make it uncomfortable for everyone else.
