A very young student had just started her first day of school when she was nervous, anxious and accidentally lost control of her bladder in class because she was too afraid the teacher would say she couldn’t go to the bathroom. But what the teacher did for her afterward is incredible.
It was the first day of school and I was just starting first grade. I was in a brand new school and I didn’t know anybody so I was really scared.
About halfway through the day, I had to go to the bathroom. For some reason, even though my teacher was a really nice lady, I was afraid she was going to say I couldn’t go to the bathroom. So I sat there and held my pee for as long as my little 6-year-old bladder would allow me to, which was about 3 minutes probably. Eventually, I could not hold it in anymore and I pissed my pants. It got on the floor and went under my desk. Somehow, no one noticed that there was dripping water coming from underneath my chair, so I sat there with my wet pants for a good twenty minutes. Eventually, the girl behind me raises her hand and I hear her say:
“Mrs. Teacher I have water under my desk.”
At this point I think I’m screwed and the teacher is going to call me out for pissing my pants and everyone is going to know and I’m never going to have any friends. But luckily the teacher sais she would take care of it later and then after the school day was over she called me up to her desk and says:
“Jennifer, did you go to the bathroom in your pants?”
And at that point, I just started crying because I was so embarrassed. The teacher was really nice about it though and she told me that it’s okay and that it happens to everyone sometimes. We made an agreement from that point on that every time I got up and went to the bathroom to do my business, she would give me a skittle. So it all worked out in the end.
I’m eternally grateful to have had a teacher as understanding as she was, because while kids will be kids and I would’ve eventually outgrown the mockery, what she did for me that day made the rest of my grade school years wonderful instead of haunting my childhood.
Mrs. William, if you’re this, thank you for looking out for me.
