    No because it's been here for two years and we are talking about memories.

    Let's See:
    Pre-School/Elementary School: The bathroom was right inside the classroom, so you could basically go whenever you needed to. In Kindergarten, there was a "bathroom time" right after Recess that most of the class took advantage of, but you could still go whenever you needed to otherwise.
    If'in you peed yourself, you would have to go to the Nurse's office to change. They kept a dresser full of spare clothing there, if I remember correctly.

    Middle School (5-6)- You would have to ask the teacher, then sign out and take the pass. Not too much of an issue.

    Junior High (7-8)- Can't really remember, to be honest. I think it was similar to in Grades 5 and 6.

    High School (9-12)- They're generally not fans of bathroom breaks. Passage time between classes was 5 minutes and they generally expected you to do it during passage time. Those bathrooms were kinda foul anyway. Jerks would make bowel movements and not flush. The best bathrooms to go to were in the Science part of the school (South Tower, Level 4). The teachers up there were the most lenient and would let you go when you needed to. Of course, on Gym days, you could use the john in the locker room as well. Most others would not let you go at all.

    This was from 1998-2002. Today, it's probably ultra-draconian. I heard that you all but can't be out of your assigned classroom during periods now. If some adult comes upon you in the hall during class time, there will probably be trouble. The sad truth is that these unfair rules are mainly (to the schools) for security purposes. In other words, expect them to get even stricter.

    By the way, some of these tactics mentioned earlier are probably illegal, like the spraying of Lysol on the girl as a punishment for peeing herself.

    One time, I was working with a 6th grade student, and it was after lunch. He had to pee really badly, but his teacher wouldn't let him go until he finished his worksheet. He was shaking and trembling in his seat. I asked if he could go, she kept saying, "Not until he finishes his worksheet." He rushed through it, he took it up to her to grade, she told him to do it over because it wasn't 100% correct, since his handwriting wasn't very legible, and I don't blame him. He had to go to the bathroom, and a trembling body'd do that to you. After the third time, she felt it was decent enough looking for him, and finally let him go. I was flabbergasted beyond belief. I don't understand why these teachers don't like to let students out, even though it's okay for them to go out.


    Not quite true. In the high school I worked at, the only bathroom in the new section of the building were the backstage bathrooms and I didn't have a key, so I had to find someone who did or use a student bathroom. When teachers are in the room alone, they usually opt not to go because they can't leave. We usually remind each other to go during lunch. So many doctors have told me teachers have the most incidences of bladder problems as a result. I just can't do it, I gotta go.

    I actually only have asked about 3 times throughout my entire school experience. All 3 times were because I was about ready to throw up, so the teachers let me go.

    When I was little I always used to ask my parents permission to go to the bathroom. I would literally track them down in the house and ask if it would be okay with them if I used the bathroom. They always thought it was so nice that I asked, but kind of funny at the same time.

    I knew this kid that was in 4th grade with me and god I hated him he had a problem so he couldn't be denied to go but one day the teacher ask if he need to and he said no and then next thing you know he pees on himself and the teacher was pissed even though i hated her I couldn't blame her. that boy was such a bully and an asshole to me back then....I saw him in my P.E. class last year he didn't recognize me or bother which was good because if he did I sure would have punched him in his damn face.

    Not allowing them to pee when its an absoloute emergency is indeed child abuse.

    Here's the reverse of that. For my first education field experience, I was sent to Summit Middle School in Summit, NJ. My cooperating teacher was also an ice hockey coach (I guess). I swear the guy drank at least 20oz of water a period (maybe more). Then, he'd go use the staff toilet (which just so happened to be right down the hall from his classroom) in between periods. It was like this all day.

    As for the students in his classes (all 7th grade Social Studies classes, by the way), all they had to do was ask and take the squishy yellow ball that was the bathroom pass with them (one at a time, of course).

    I don't know about at School but at home I lived with my mom, my aunt, my sister, and my grandma and always used to have to wait to use the bathroom even though we had two bathrooms. It continues to this day even though my grandma has passed on and my sister has moved out. If I only have to pee and it's not cold as balls outside, I've been known to pee in the bushes behind my house if I can't wait.

    We were not allowed to use the restroom during recess. This led to an unfortunate accident for me when, after doing the potty dance for most of one period, I had to let go. It was in winter and the snow totally gave me away. Real fun.....

    I had to wear the spare pants that my teacher kept for these occasions.

    Plaid bell-bottoms. Even in 1983 it looked really bad. Lucky for me my dad brought me up something to change into.


    That is kind of stupid.

    I remember I peed in my pants in the 2nd grade...i think the teacher didnt let me go and when she saw that i wet myself at the end of the day, she acted all sympathetic towards me...heh...also, in high school, they used to lock almost every bathroom in the school. I had to pee so bad and i ran from the locked bathroom on the 1st floor to the locked bathroom on the 3rd to the 5th floor locker bathroom...It was frustrating just to look for a -censored- bathroom. Sometimes they would open the bathrooms once in a while...the primary reason was that kids used to cut classes and hang in the bathrooms and the security guards would catch them....ugh.


    My first boyfriend wet his pants when I was little in elementary school.

    No but at my one school the bathrooms were absolutely disgusting and sometimes I had to hold it just because of that.

    I've noticed that outside of female issues; girls are expected to hold it more than boys. A boy can just pee in the bushes, but a girl needs toilet paper which may not be available. It also is considered not lady like for a girl to pee outside. There is also the issue with sitting on the toilets. A boy can just go at the urinal, but the girl has to sit down. Some parents may worry about them getting something. I have met many girls that avoid public restrooms and I'm sure some of that comes from the way they were raised. In middle school I knew two girls that never used the restroom at school. When we had a break they wouldn't use them at all, the whole day. I'm sure their mothers from a young age trained them not to use public restrooms.

    I saw this twice last year in stores. The first was at Home Depot. I heard the little girl yell out that she had to go potty at the checkout. Rather than take her they preceded to the exit. The little girl started to cry and yell that she had to go potty. The older brother told her "we're going home" as the door closed I could hear her screaming from outside. Poor little girl!

    The other was a Wal-Mart. The little girl asked her brother "Can you please take me to the bathroom" The mom replied "you're going to have to wait until we get home" The little girl replied "I don't know if I can" The mom replied "you better, we're almost done" The little girl was running around the front of the store while the mom check out. She was right in front of the restrooms, but never went inside.

    I saw simular stuff when I was a kid in public, but don't remember the details. Bascially the store had a restroom, but the mom wouldn't take them.

    No, never have, Never will (At the moment at least)

    Though that's normally because I have to go really bad and don't want to use the bathroom in my pants.
