Toilet paper restrictions

MAHANOY CITY – Vandalism in Mahanoy Area High School boys’ bathrooms has resulted in toilet paper being issued by request as needed, a policy that one parent believes is embarrassing for students.

Karen Yedsena, Mahanoy City, spoke during the public portion of Thursday’s school board meeting, asking about the policy.

“I’m asking about the high school and why the boys are not allowed to have toilet paper except if they go to the nurse or the office to get it,” Yedsena said.

The boys’ bathrooms in the high school do not have toilet paper due to vandalism. Any boy needing the bathroom tissue must ask for it and sign it out.

High school Principal Thomas Smith said it was a solution to a major problem.

“We’ve had serious destruction to our bathrooms for the past two years,” Smith said. “We have a case pending with the police where a bathroom down by our gymnasium was absolutely destroyed. I’m sure Mr. (Robert) Pastucha (district facilities director) could tell you the times that our toilets have been jammed with toilet paper and other papers. And after we took the toilet tissue out of there, people were throwing books. It was our way to try to curb the destruction in the bathrooms.”

Smith explained the procedure in getting the toilet tissue.

“Our policy is that if you need toilet paper, you would come to the office. We’re not refusing anyone toilet paper,” Smith said. “You would sign out and then sign back in. I randomly go in to check if anything is going on. Since we’ve done that, we’ve cut down on the destruction.”

Yedsena said there are students who have been embarrassed to go to the office for toilet paper and instead would go to the nurse saying they’re not feeling well and go home instead. Thomas said he was unaware of any such problem from the monthly reports from the nurse.

“I think it’s been pretty much accepted,” Superintendent Joie Green said.

“Well, it’s not,” Yedsena said.

Yedsena also asked about the restrictions that students can only go to the bathroom during the first five minutes of a class.

“We’re cutting down on people walking through the hallways for no reason,” Green said. “What we’re trying to do, is that they’re going to the bathroom at the beginning and end of class.”

Yedsena asked if the toilet paper policy could be changed, to which Smith said it could.

    Awww, the poor widdow vandals are embarrassed to ask for toilet paper. Ok then, we’ll return the t-p and install surveillance cameras in the stalls. That should do the trick.

    when i was a boy in public schools, we would have taken care of the vandals behavior ourselves as soon as their behavior had a negative impact on the rights of rest of us.

    looks like we are raising a bunch of future “politicians” in our public schools always looking for some one else to “fix things” and then complain because you don’t like the results.

    the only problem with this country is that it is full of pussy’s and fags.

    Boobie — Not posting the dateline is a pet peeve of mine too. Most times I can guess if it sounds vaguely familiar, but most times, nah.

    As for the young fellas and their T-P problems. The left (i.e. young) seems to be okay with Big Bro watching everything, so surveillance it is. Let’s put the janitor in charge of monitoring the camera and hope he’s not a freak.

    This reminds me of an old joke…

    Ralph and Fred are hunting in the woods.

    Fred yells, “Hey! I’ve got to take a wicked crap; I’ll be right back. I don’t have any TP in my backpack! Have you got any?”

    Ralph says, “Nope. But if you don’t want to use leaves, just use a dollar.”

    Fred comes back out of the woods with his hands covered in poop.

    Ralph says, “WTF? What happened?”

    Fred replies, “I only had three quarters and a dime.”

    :evil:

    Because screwing the actual perpetrators would be unfair, since it only targets those responsible, they chose instead to screw everyone.

    That’s fair, right? Everyone’s on the same level of misery.

    Welcome to Libville, folks! If you like our toilet paper policy, you’ll luuuuuv our new health care system!

    I just have three questions about this story:

    How stupid exactly is this Karen Yedsena, that she doesn’t grok the simple connection between vandalism using toilet paper, and the restriction of toilet paper?

    Why is her son such a giant blubbering vagina that he’s ‘embarrassed’ to ask for toilet paper?

    If asking for toilet paper is such a problem for this whiney little d-bag, then why doesn’t he bring a roll from home and store it in his locker/desk/backpack?

    Any boy who has to shit regularly in a school bathroom should see a doctor. Nasty places. And they can’t say they are being penalized by the actions of a few vandals, since the situation prior to the TP lockdown was worse; They didn’t have TP, because it was in the toilets, and they didn’t have toilets because the toilets were clogged with TP. Here’s a solution: Frequent flyers learn to bring their own snacks, capiche?

    Frankly I’d just bring my own. And finally have decent, double-layer TP at school instead of the industrial stuff.

    TN Tuxedo, could you please explain how they would “target those responsible” in this situation?

    How would they go about identifying the perpetrators and singling them out? Guards in the bathrooms?

    As a kid, I never once had the unpleasant opportunity to take a shit at school, and for two good reasons.

    Back then, for some reason there were no doors on the stalls in boy’s room. (yeah, ONLY the boys were bad, right?) So there goes the privacy factor and in comes the BootCamp Head Simulation.

    And, any boy who DID drop his shorts and park his ass on the pot, got laughed at by any and all other guys who happened to be in there as well.

    Obviously the only solution is to microstamp all toilet paper in the county with the buyers SS number and only allow rolls with no more than eight sheets of paper on them into the school at any given time.

    Also, your name must be checked against a National Diarrhea Registry and a three day waiting period before you can take a laxative home with you after purchase.

    All your sh1t are belong to us!

    Ahhhh…. Mahanoy City. About 18 miles from me and about 10 miles from Mt. Carmel( remember the suspended 5 year old terrorist with a Hello Kitty Bubble Gun ?).
    It’s obvious that the Libtards are targeting the land of “Bitter Clingers” and wish to impose their liberal bullshit upon us. Too bad for them. There is already a group of concerened parents and citizens ready to run these fuckers out of town, as they have before. BTW- Mahanoy City is right next to Shenandoah… don’t remember? That’s where an illegal alien thought he was gonna “take a shot at the title” and ended-up being killed by a kid(s). The MSM went ape shit and labeled everyone that lives in Shenandoah a RAY-CYST.
    FYI- The liberal left propaganda machine is on location making a movie about Shenandoah right now… that is whenever they aren’t afraid to crawl out from the shadows for fear of being beaten.
    Here in the Coal Region, they dish-out their own justice and outsiders ARE NOT WELCOME.
    The war is on…. don’t think otherwise.
