When I was a kid in first grade my teacher had a system for when the class would get unruly. She would scream out “Everybody Freeze!” in which the entire class had to freeze in place until she said it was OK to move again. One day I went up tot he teacher to asked to be excused to go to the bathroom, on the way she said “Everybody Freeze!”. I stood there wiggling and begged her if I could talk to her and she said no. There in my tracks I pied in my pants, with it running down onto the floor. I was supremely embarrassed. In my later years I wonder how the teacher felt.
