I hope this topic will not be TMI or cause anyone any discomfort.
I grew up and attended high school in the US southwest in the mid-1980’s. The boys’ restrooms at the school I attended, as well as the other schools in the same district, did not have stalls surrounding the toilets. If one were unfortunate enough to have to defecate during school hours, any one else in the restroom would be able to watch you, and hear you, and smell you. (Especially those sitting on the adjoining toilets, which were only spaced a yard or so apart.)
Apparently this no longer occurs today, even in the military. So I’m wondering, how many of you had to poop with your classmates? Did you feel awkward and/or embarrased?
