We had an “occurrence” at work yesterday. Something so unbelievable random and disgusting that I can’t believe I didn’t post about it I’m going to post about it!
Seems a co-worker of mine had pulled up next to the building & was getting ready to exit her car when she observed a gentleman man walking ahead of where she was parked suddenly stop, drop his drawers, squat, and do his “bidness” right there on the sidewalk.
Oh. Yes. He. Did.
And even scarier? There were other people about who didn’t even notice! Some were on their cell phones & apparently others were just chatting with whoever they were walking with and somehow missed the person publicly defecating on the sidewalk. How do you not see something like this?!?!
My poor co-worker’s lunch was ruined (can you imagine!!!), and just when she thought she was going to have to walk past him on her way into the building, the offending party pulled up his pants and calmly walked on.
LIKE. NOTHING. EVER. HAPPENED.
There are not enough words for how very, very wrong this is.
I think I’m scarred for life and I didn’t even see it.
I just had to walk past the <shudder> wet spot later in the day. After someone from the maintenance crew cleaned it up, thankfully. Poor guy went from trouble shooting a complex mechanical issue to public-poo-clean-up in a matter of 5 minutes. Not a highlight of his day, I’ll bet.
Boggles the mind, does it not? I’ve heard about things like this happening, but I always assumed they occured in the seedy parts of town, under bridges, or in the middle of the woods while camping. Not in downtown Boise, practically outside my window!
So this is how I ushered in December. Contemplating which virtual stranger walking in front of me might suddenly cop a squat and take the sidewalk to a new level of un-sanitary.
Merry Christmas ya’ll!! (from Mr. Hanky…the Christmas poo)
