Obviously this will not work, I am not allowed bathroom breaks at work!

Per the ExpertLaw website, this is what OSHA says: In 2006 OSHA, the US government's health and safety enforcement agency, issued an "enforcement memorandum" clarifying the law on access to toilet facilities. It states that under the sanitation standard "the employer must not impose unreasonable restrictions on employee use of the facilities" and that "the standard requires employers to allow employees prompt access to sanitary facilities."

Per OSHA:

Restroom Breaks
Sanitation standards for restroom breaks are generally covered by OSHA, but mostly by interpretation. The OSHA standards for bathroom usage is under 29 CFR 1910.141(c)(l)(i) and states that employers are required to provide their employees with toilet facilities separated for each sex in all places of employment. This standard is interpreted by OSHA to say that “employees will not suffer adverse health effects that can result if toilets are not available when employees need them. Individuals vary significantly in the frequency…” and explains that many factors can affect the frequency including the fact that medical studies show women need to urinate more frequently than men.

Ok, so I have a porta-potty out there....but if I can't get a minute to use it what good is it? If customers are lined up 6 deep one cannot just say "potty time, gotta go" Even if I did then they would be lined up 10 deep when I came back. Certainly there is no time for taking a break. But, yes, I understand that my employer meets OSHA rules, barely. To bad somebody didn't actually write specifics like "Employers must provide each employee at least a 5 minute break for the use of facilities at least every 4 hours worked" OMG that would be clear and enforceable. The way that crap is written now is just fluff. My employer says the porta potty is there and they can use it whenever they need...Yeah right!

Special, you are getting a raw deal there. I went to the web site and read some deeper the OSHA policy. I hope this helps.
You may want to copy it and slip it under your bosses door. Btw, if you are fired for asking for your rights, you will have recourse. Don't let threats of job security intimidate you. Your boss is the one in the wrong.

In light of the standard's purpose of protecting employees from the hazards created when toilets are not available, it is clear that

the standard requires employers to allow employees prompt access to sanitary facilities.

Restrictions on access must be reasonable, and may not cause extended delays.

For example, a number of employers have instituted signal or relief worker systems for employees working on assembly lines or in other jobs where any employee's absence, even for the brief time it takes to go to the bathroom, would be disruptive.

Under these systems, an employee who needs to use the bathroom gives some sort of a signal so that another employee may provide relief while the first employee is away from the work station.

As long as there are sufficient relief workers to assure that employees need not wait an unreasonably long time to use the bathroom, OSHA believes that these systems comply with the standard.

Citation Policy

Employee complaints of restrictions on toilet facility use should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to determine whether the restrictions are reasonable.

Careful consideration must be given to the nature of the restriction, including the length of time that employees are required to delay bathroom use, and the employer's explanation for the restriction.

In addition, the investigation should examine whether restrictions are general policy or arise only in particular circumstances or with particular supervisors, whether the employer policy recognizes individual medical needs, whether employees have reported adverse health effects, and the frequency with which employees are denied permission to use the toilet facilities.

Knowledge of these factors is important not only to determine whether a citation will be issued, but also to decide how any violation will be characterized.
