Funny Monday: OMG Revisited

Reader Frank brought this old post to my attention recently, and because it made him and his lovely wife LOL, I thought I'd make a fool of myself again by posting it. It was originally posted in March 2009, when I taught a pull-out class of juvenile delinquents, ages 11-14.


There's no easy way to say this.

farted (out loud, accidentally) in class on Tuesday.

And the worst part? I was standing right next to a kid that I am constantly reprimanding for farting in class.

There was a split second of hope that no one heard it, but that didn't last long. The look on "that" student's face was PRICELESS. I think I made his day, or year. (It was almost worth the embarrassment.)

An hour later, I hear Shawn say to another student, "Dude--Mrs.4444 let one rip in math class today."

Man, I hope their memories for this event are as short as they are for basic math facts.

P.S. In reading this, I find it funny that I felt the need to add the word "accidentally" up there, as if that wouldn't be assumed by adults reading my blog. I was going to edit it out, but then I realized that it illustrates the company I keep at school, for whom breaking wind in class is rarely an "accident."

Have a Happy Monday!


  1. Seriously, I fear this happening to me in class!

  2. This is too funny! I'm so sorry that it happened, but I think in a weird way, it sort of endeared you to them! Thanks for the chuckles this morning!

  3. Heeehehehee!!! What can I say, it happens to the best of us.

    Funny repeat, made this old gal LOL. :o)

    God bless and have a fabulous week!!!

  4. Oh, I'd be so mortified! But way to laugh it off!

  5. Funny - glad you reposted it, I don't remember the post. We are all human and extra gas can occur. Good to know you are very relaxed in the classroom.
    Nice new banner pic - I should change mine but I need to figure out what would look good.

  6. I did it - I changed my banner/header. Well it's a work in progress.

  7. Love this and laughed so hard....I've never done that before.....heehee! oops was that you!

  8. Now that's funny Barb!!! You always have the best stories and laughter is the best medicine....even if it's AT us and not with us :)

  9. So funny! This happened to me once in middle school, it was mortifying.


Your 2 cents...
