When i worked on carnival grounds one of my mates set up a large bottle on the A frame of his trailor with a hose running into his trailer where he stands and sells his plants, when he needs to go he pops behind the curtain, first day i saw him standing in the corner with his donger down the hose in full view of about 8 elderly ladies:o the curtain had blown back in the middle of his business, funny he never noticed as he was facing to the corner of the van and continued until he was finished........:laugh:

At work its pot luck where i go for 45 secs of business i am not driving to any resturant, never been caught but a friend got caught doing a big poo in some ones garden.....claimed he was spreading manure...:laugh: prob charged them to :laugh:

This thread is hillarious! But hey, that's life. McD's always has clean restrooms unless you are in the ghetto or something. Bob Evans always has clean restrooms too. These are the only places for #2 unless it is a REAL emergency! Usually I go to a gas station to whiz, but I have gone in the woods/behind a garage if I absoloutely KNOW I won't get caught. That would be bad for business I think!
BTW Sangroper, I have never heard the term Donger before, that's funny. I love you Aussies' slang, you need to post a list. hahaha

#1 -- Woods, or behind a gas station (since public restrooms seem to be rare in my area). A lot of my jobs are in rural areas, too.

#2 -- Home or at a relative's house closest to where I am working.


When I am plowing snow during the early A.M. Hours, (very little traffic during that time) I do stop my truck in the road and just pee in the road. If someone's coming, I cut it short and pull over and wait until the person drives by, and finish my leak. It's the only downside to drinking tons of coffee during those long days.

I'd say the filling station or lunch stop normally, but when it gets COLD the need to pee for the first few days of that cold spell seem to come every hour or 2! Around here there's really no "woods" to speak of so you have to improvise and scout locations on the property you are on. It's amazing just how FEW places there is in a residential setting, even the further spaced out neghiborhoods, that are hidden from anyones view. Never fails, as soon as you *think* you have a place you look around and you can see a window from a neghiboring house, or it's in plain view from the road... Lets just say I have places i many yards scouted out! Needed them this last week too!

When "dropping the Cosby kids off at the pool".... there's no place like home.
I don't start the day till the paperworks' done; then go light on lunch.

When it's time to "adjust the sprinkler head"; stop in a quiet corner of the yard, take the trimmer spool off and flip a few yards of line out across the yard. Take a knee and move the trimmer line around with one hand and drop " 'ol one eye" out the bottom of the shorts.

I got a sneak attack one day and had to make mud. There was a deep ditch behind the house.... Right at the point of no return, 4 guys with trimmers stepped into the ditch about 40 yards away and started cutting. It was the county road crew that keeps the ditches and canals maintained.

Back before we had enclosed trailers, we would stand on the side of the truck, hang it in between the cab and the box, and pretend we're reaching for a tool in the back when someone drives by. They never knew we already had grabbed our tool.

One of my two twin daughters saw a plastic Diet Pepsi bottle lying alongside the road the other day with a 'mystery fluid' in it.
It obviously was NOT Diet Pepsi, due to the light yellow sheen of its contents. ;)
I had noticed it too as we drove by, but I didn't say anything...:
All of a sudden she goes "Oooooo..YUK!!..what was THAT ?!?"
Without missing a single beat, I answer (in mock disgust): "A piss bomb" :cry::cry::cry:

They're both 'tweens' now...so I figured it was probably about time to break this el-sicko modern American male phenomema to 'em.

As many OTHER parents of 'tweens out there can certainly understand though, this type of thing is just one more little tiny step forward...to the 'end of the innocence'.... of all things we once knew, as our children's childhood.

I know of at least 3 local lawn friends who were caught 'taking a leak' in back yards. All 3 were charged BY COPS for ""INDECENT EXPOSURE"" .:confused: WTF? Just guessing........ there are probably ten times more incidents that I don't even know about.

All 3 cases were "changed" :confused: to a lesser "charge". DUH!!! Seems that a small percentage of "cops" try to do their best to get Americans in as much trouble as they can.........lying always helps too.

Now I ask where this Country is going. :confused::confused:

Here's the unfortunate thing .......... if you tap on the State legal site, the first thing that pops up is "indecent exposure". Sh&t -- you'd think these guys were sex offenders! Cuz that's what comes up first (unless one reads the "fine print").:hammerhead: This whole thing ain't right and is most likely unconstitutional.

Worth all the hassle, just to have the story.

I had an employee who needed to go pretty bad. We were working in a nice neighborhood, no place to wizz in private. He said he could hold it. He is putting on of the Tbar mowers away into the trailer when it stops he bumps into the bar and just couldn't hold it in....once it starts coming out, he freaks and pulls his shorts down, just finishes wizzing off the side of the trailer.... I would have been mad, but I was LMAO, it was an open trailer, in the street. Luckily no one was watching. We were only a few miles from home, so I dropped him off for a change of clothes, then made him hose off the trailer. :laugh::laugh:

In the late 80's, I was driving a ChemScape tanker truck -- going from one outlying town to another (in rural areas). Then I 'felt the urge' and needed to go. So I pulled off the blacktop road & drove about 1/4 mile north on a gravel road. Parked the tanker, and walked down into a steep ditch to 'do my job'.

Seems a farmer saw me. (must have been over 1/4 mile away or more). He called the office saying he saw me taking a dump a half mile away.

Branch manager asked him how he could see me that far away. Farmer said, he was using binoculars. When I got back to the shop, the branch manager asked me if I was there. I said yes. He never scolded me cuz he was also a former farmer. While this never happened again, both me & my branch manager wondered why this farmer was 'spying on me' instead of working.

Especially since I was not on his property. True story.

I keep a large cup or a Gatorade type bottle handy. I get in my truck, sit down, pull it out and relieve myself into it. Generally I will empty it inconspicuously. The only time I crapped, I was cutting up a tree for a friend. I must have had some bad clams the night before because there was no time for finding a McDonalds or gas station. Fortunately there was a small wooded lot behind the houses where i was cutting. I grabbed an old rag from my tool box and ran like hell into the woods to the nearest large tree. I dropped trow and had an a** splosion.

When I was in high school, I ran cross country. Running frequently generates a big crap. The first time I got the "urge" I tried to supress it, to no avail. I managed to get to a corn field and let it go. Using leaves from a corn stalk aint fun..... from there on out I went prepared!

This is one great thing about working on a golf course instead of doing residential landscaping - it's much easier to piss discreetly than if I was in somebody's backyard!

I always keep an empty half-gallon jug of Rosenberger's iced tea in my car for just this purpose. In the Philly area pretty much every convenience store has half-gallon jugs of cheap dairy iced tea; other areas only seem to have overpriced little bottles of Snapple and Nestea and stuff like that.

Piss anywhere i can find that im not really seen.. trick is , is to act like your working on something.. fixing your weed trimmer, or checking the tire pressure.. I hunker down next to the wheel of my mower.. and act like im checking on something.. ( but im really pissing next to the tire)

Now, for pooing... I hit a firehall. they clean the toilets every day.. and usually no piss on the seat.

In the late 80s I worked at chem lawn we carried buckets to put trash in clean our screens or in case of a leak.Some of the guys would pee in door hanger bags and put them in the bucket.Later in the day if they would see a competitor's truck they would toss them in the open window!I never did this because if somebody did it to me I would be mad I did see it happen several times.To this day I roll my window up on the street side.

One of the longest running threads with the most posts ever, was on this same topic many years ago. It was called someething like "Banos in the Bushes".
It was a lot of fun reading the posts on that topic.
