Sympathy hurls are no joke. I got a gag reflex in my ear. I hear that "eech" sound and I am right with you.

I thought it was a Mass school illness, but it was actually a mass school illness.

While it's not exactly sympathy vomiting, it's that if someone vomits, it smells so bad that it makes other kids vomit, especially if their stomachs are weakened by something like that too sweet concentrate. What is not a factor is "hygiene" of kids sharing chips from the same bag.

Yup, I'm a manly man who spends time in the woods, fixes things myself, works on machines, etc but because I'm a sympathetic vomiter I've had to call the wife home from work a few times to clean up when the kids missed the toilet/trashcan/bathroom.

I have to turn that movie off when it gets to that scene.

I have something simlar. Whenever I hear, smell or see some one poop, I have to poop.

If someone's puking I reflexively plug my ears before I plug my nose.

The trick is to not touch it. Seriously. Not even with gloves on or anything, because that slippery, slick - betcha turning green just thinking about it - feeling will get you. Doesn't matter if it's dogsh*t, dead baby bird on the car, headless squirrel present from cat..the nose will fatigue and block the smell fairly quick.

That is sympathy vomiting. It goes way back. If someone throws up his dinner, it might be bad food, and it's sensible to vomit yours. Especially if you shared the same food. It smells bad, and that's the trigger.

My specialty in elementary school was making other kids puke at lunch by talking about puke while they were eating.

If I could set one off, I could usually get at least half a dozen.

I was room mom in a first grade classroom when we reenacted the scene from Stand By Me. One poor kid with a tummy bug lost it right on the reading corner rug after lunch. One by one, one at a time, the puke went round the room. It was a chain reaction of puke. It took out eight kids, plus the original puker. The classroom was covered in post-lunch puke. Taco Tuesday. All. Over. The. Room. The smell...

And there was a sub that day. A very young sub. Right out of college. Now this was the class of my youngest (and I taught pre-k for years) so I have experience with multiple child vomit situations, and can more or less handle the triage and damage control. This poor summer child, though, did not. It was a school rule that a sick kid in the lower grades needed an adult escort to the nurse, so I spent a good hour walking puking kids to the office. The sub, tears in her eyes, offered to switch it up with me, but I couldn't be in the classroom without a staff member, so that was a no. It was only after nine piles of taco vomit on the floor of this not-large classroom, covered in that sawdust magic puke cleaner stuff, that the principal had enough mercy on this poor sub to pull what was left of the kids out of the room and send them to the gym.

Yeah, that sub never came back. I imagine she went into retail soon after.

Thanks for the support. I had a hard time deciding which one to post. but we got it.


In a related story that will say plenty about me... In middle school we were playing some kind of bastardized lacrosse game in hot weather. I was stupid enough to run my butt off and actually try. I went inside after gym, to my lunch period, rapidly ate my food in true early-teen fashion, and then ran to a trash can to hork it all back up.
I was pissed I wasted my lunch.
Then I bought another lunch and ate that one too. kept it down.

"Health officials say the students also practiced poor hygiene by sharing the food and liquid, the latter of which they drank from their hands, lunch trays and other ill-advised conduits."

Lol...wut?

Reminds me... in high school during a mile run test, one kid decided that he was going to try and sprint the entire thing. I was at a little more than half a lap when he passed me in what was his second lap. A few seconds later I had the pleasure of watching him puke as I jogged past.

omg I'm so glad I'm not the only one.I always look away, and try not to even listen, and get made fun of for it, but I don't care, it's gross. some find gross humor funny, but I'm not one of them.

I'm imagining drinking the syrup from catcher's mitts, an old shoe, a Del Taco taco shell, and squeezing it from another kid's hair.

Kids are so frigg'ng soft these days, why don't they just put them in wheelchairs and padding so they don't hurt themselves.  Don't give them food either, make the parents come in during lunch.  Get rid of the cafeteria just in case the snowflakes hurt themselves.

Public schools in the US are now too poor to afford cups. Thanks, Betsy DeVos.

We sopped the drink with our socks because we couldn't afford shoes.

I was not a fan of this erotica until the twist ending.
