Just discovered this one floating around as well. I remember all sorts of stories like this from years back, although whether I have time to write them out is another question...
Damn, it was one I'd already posted. IIRC the other two were a description of two different friends who had problems with messing their pants very frequently - one of them seemed to have no idea at all that he needed to go, he'd be sitting down at the desk in school and then look very vacant for a few seconds, often with quiet wet farting noises emanating from his trousers. He'd then immediately get up and go to the cloakroom to change his pants, as he always carried a spare pair - although occasionally he'd have two accidents in one day and need to get the nurse to wash them. Normally he bagged the dirty pair and took them home. This kept up 'til he was at least 12 (when we went to different schools), and he'd often end up crying in the cloakroom as people made fun of him, becuase it wasn't his fault... the other friend had many, many accidents in a similar way, but I suspect with him it was a bit more due to a mixture of having very soft pooh and not wanting to leave the classroom - he had very messy accidents on a weekly basis even in secondary school, often on the way home from school (a couple of times we were walking back together towards my house when he had accidents, so I had to lend him pants after he'd cleaned up at home) - his Mum took a seriously laid back attitude to it though, she left a pail for messy pants by the toilet that he or his younger brothers and sisters could use without getting into trouble, and I know that even now he still has accidents from time to time mainly because he just doesn't bother to go.
Right, that's about as much time as I can spend on posting this stuff for now... anyone else want to follow up?
