If given a choice, we'd assume most kids would choose NOT to go to the dentist.
But one 12-year-old boy in France decided he'd take some action and actually run away so he wouldn't have to go!
We feel like this kind of story normally ends with the kid getting returned home and his parents giving him a stern talking to.
But he was picked up by the police first! And that's when he made his second bad decision of the day… he lied and made up a story about being kidnapped.
