Her mom baked her an apology cake for not believing in her, and it's the funniest thing ever
When teenager Rachel Gelmis took a voluntary drug test offered at her school, she was absolutely sure that her results would be clean.
However, they came back positive—and not for the one prescribed drug she was actually taking. She tested positive for marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, benzodiazepine, and barbiturates.
Gelmis told her mom Karen that the results were wrong, but her mom didn’t believe her. Thankfully, the school found out that they had misread the test and called back to set things straight, but by that time, the damage had been done.
How did her mom make up for it? With this cake:
“Sorry we thought you did meth… & coke & pot & heroin :(“
That time my mom genuinely believed I was doing every drug at once bc my idiot school misread my drug test pic.twitter.com/VNJQJqXzXY

“I got called to the office and basically cornered by four members of the administration,” Gelmis told The Huffington Post. “I was completely terrified because I had no idea what was going on. They told [Mom] before I could talk to her. She was really freaked out, and she cried when she took me home.”
Gelmis told her grief-stricken parents that the test results were inaccurate, but by that time, her mom was already considering checking her daughter into rehab.
PS in the time it took for them to realize they fucked up, she had an emotional breakdown and started researching different rehab facilities

Fortunately for the teen, her school detected their error—she was clean, after all—and called up her parents to let them know before the situation could escalate.
“A few hours later, the school called my mom and told her they misread the test,” Gelmis told Select All. “They said lines were supposed to show up a certain way to indicate which drugs are in your system and they just read it the wrong way.”
