Using the bathroom is a biological necessity. Thats all there is to it. So why does my school decide to close 4 out of 5 available bathrooms? Why do I have to sprint down the halls (if I'm even let out of class to go pee -.- ) to a probably already overpacked bathroom to try and do my business and then get back to class at a 'reasonable time'.
If a teacher even lets you out of the room for a biological need in most of my classes you have to give them a bathroom pass . These passes are very limited. Three per 9 weeks to be exact.
Currently however, its been a struggle for everyone because the whole school is being unjustly punished because of a very select few. For instance, bathrooms were shut down in the boys and girls bathroom because some nasty girl decided it was a good time to smoke in the bathroom. Another time bathrooms were closed because two boys decided to have sex in the bathroom.
Why are we being punished for other's wrongs? In the worst way? I don't abuse my "bathroom privileges". I go pee, I get back to class. So why do I have to hold it all day and be uncomfortable all day just to sprint up the hill to a bathroom. Every day I find myself sprinting to get home just so I can use thenrestroom because there isnt an availble restroom at school. ...Well there is just one...however seeing as Im not the only person in the school who has to use the restroom its more often then not a big long line. Then! You get punshed for 'taking too long' or for 'wandering the halls'.
I'm pretty sure I've developed a UTI now because of having to hold it all damn day. I can't waste my passes because, being a girl, I have a period and its unfortunayely heavy. I need to use the passes wisly... something I shouldnt have to do.
I and the other students in my school shouldn't be worried about the next time they can use the bathroom. We should be worried about tests and grades.
I'm pretty sure what the school is doing, IS ILLEGAL. And I've just about had it. I cannot sit through another day at school desperately trying to hold it. Especially with a UTI I have to go more frequently. And god forbid I bleed through my jeans for everyone to see AGAIN . Ive already been humiliated by that. And wetting myself is not going to be the next incident if I can help it.
