Random thoughts and “thread” mainly for those who wet themselves in class and were unable to conceal the fact from either or both parents.
After a particular “flood” some possible out comes might include
1) the School phones home to advise what you have “done” almost straight away
2) Some arrangements made (spare clothes?) and you remain at school until normal time to go home.
3) possiblty you remain in your wet clothes until, normal time to go home.
My musings are over the wide range of possible ways of decribing the episode or fessing up to what you have done.
In my own case, I was left to walk out of school in my very recently wet shorts (I had wee’d in them during last lesson of the afternnon) to meet my mother. I had concealed all evidence of it by putting on my rain coat and doing it up fully. Neverthhteless, I just blurted out “My trousers are all wet!!!”
I have wondered what school might have said had I done it earlier in the school day and they phoned:
“Mrs XXXXX? I’m afraid your son has had an “accident”. Could you come and collect him and bring a change of clothes please? ” or similar.
In my blurting out, why was I not more specific in saying “I’ve wet myself” or “I have wet my pants”
All of the various ways of referring to a wet pants eposode actually excite me to a greater or lesser extent and I wondered if other in this group were similar.
If my teacher had reported to my perents the event, they could alernatively have said:
“M has wet himself
“M has gone the the toilet in his pants”
“M has made a puddle on the foor”
“M has wet in the classroom
“M has made a puddle”
“M left it too late”
In anouncing my hapless plight I might have said:
“I’ve wee’d myself”
“I’ve wet myself”
“I’ve wet my pants”
“I’ve wet my trousers”
“I’ve done wee wee”
“I wet myself in class”
“I couldn’t wait and I went to the toilet in my pants”
“I made a big puddle on the floor”
I just wondered if anyone had recollections of ways that they themswslves refeffred to their “disgrace” or how other referred to the epoisode or episodes if you were habitual or recurrent pants-wetters.
