A slightly comical dilemma, I suppose, but it's something no-one ever talks about (for understandable reasons). Has anyone ever got caught short mid-lesson and needed to rush to the toilet? It's happened to me several times recently, but funnily enough only the first time in years of teaching. It got me wondering if this is 'allowed'? No one saw me rush out and leave my class for a grand total of less than 60 seconds, but I'm expecting issues when I eventually do (oh my goodness, what am I saying?!?!) At the minute I'm lucky enough to be right next to a toilet, but some schools' staff toilets are miles away from the classrooms. What happens when you really need to go but can't? Please share your stories and thoughts! P.S. I'm also giggling inside at typing about toilets!
