Everyone that isn't in this business always ask me "well...what do you do when you need to use the restroom?" Of course, if a restroom isn't close by, one needs to make do. A Big Gulp cup, bush or hidden corner of the property....what do you do?

This is a no brainer. Take a 16 or 20 oz. coffee cup, sit in the truck and you are all set.

Wife will be working with me from now on so I set up a small porta potty in a corner of the enclosed trailer. Before that an old 'sport drink' bottle was very handy.

With all the road rage, just wear a condom, fill it up and use as a water balloon for the next unweary soul who cuts you off in traffic! Just kidding. Us real men just hang it out the window, at a high rate of speed of course, and let it rip. Just make sure you are under high pressure or you will hit the equipment on the trailer. Gives a new meaning to the term "Z-Spray". Kidding again. Put on a halloween gorilla suit and go where you please. That way, no one will be offended.

Every problem is really an opportunity in disguise and this is where projecting a professional image can really pay off!

A professional has the tools and skills to make any job look easy! With one of these you'll show everyone that there is no aspect of day-to-day problems that you haven't thought of and at the same time you have taken what might have been an embarassing problem and turned it into a marketing success. Good looking door signs and one of these will get you noticed, just remember to have plenty of business cards handy!

Hey tx_angler,

Better put a seat belt on that thing!

Do you wear roller blades for when the vehicle is in motion?

in my "old" trailer (enclosed) i drilled a hole in the corrner put a small section of hose thru it and put a hole in the bucket the same size as the hose ...dont recall what i used to seal it but a bunch of things would work... then after the hose is thru the bucket and the floor, mount the bucket to the wall ....now its just like the bathrooms ....and you dont have to empty it ever...it just runs out from under the trailer..
I also would keep a gal. of tap water (milk jug) to "flush" or after a few days it will start to stink...especialy if its hot out!

(you sould see the cops looks on their faces when they realize what it is for when they look inside the trailer! priceless!)

32 oz plastic cup. Word to the wise. Don't use a paper cup. I once pulled into this batting cage that I mowed. I had to go and was too lazy to walk around to the bathroom. So I acted like I was putting something in the bed of my pick-up and let it rip right on the ground never realizing that the owner and his wife could see underneath my truck. I go up there to talk to them and the guy goes"did ya git any on your shoes"

Around here, you can't drive twenty yards without seeing a Sheetz,Exxon,GoMart,etc..When we are on the other end of town out in the sticks, anywhere out of sight works for us.Just don't piss in the wind. I was thinkin' about making the guys wear Depends this year, that would save a lot of pit stop time, you think?<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/10/10_2_2.gif' border=0></a>

Well - I've used many of the same devices - gatorade containers, coffee cups, etc. and yes, on large lots and clients that are far away from packed residential neighborhoods, I've even been known to use a quiet and secluded corner of their property but only if I know no one is home.

well during the summer months, the gas stations or woods suffice. during the fall, we actually built a hatch on top of our leaf box you climb in and have all the time to yourself. there was a joke going about it, and somebody mounted a toilet paper holder and magazine rack in there. it was pretty funny. but it works great.

All the construction around here use porta potties.
All else fails open door of the truck and let go.

I have used a gatorade bottle many of times. Occasionally if I'm certain no one is looking, I will step into a large stand of philodendrons. Plenty of privacy in there.

Ya but you don't want to be leaving that in the front seat of your truck. Pee looks a little to much like Lemon Lime Gatorade.

As far as where I drain my main vane? Theres a place in just about every yard that I have. Some are high risk pee places but I drink a lot of water. Depends on how bad I have to go. It gets to the point where I start doing a really sloppy job, because all I can think about is taking a leak.

02-22-2004, 11:53 AM
Only if I could not hold it would I pee in my truck. I would take 5 min. to go the nearset gas station and use some proper facilities.

02-22-2004, 12:20 PM
I grew up in the country so I guess peeing outside isn't a big deal for me. Hell, I'll pee off my patio if it's more convenient than walking to the bathroom. One of the benefits of being a boy I guess.

Actually, i was wondering how professional it was to drain the vein on someone elses property just last week. After holding it and holding it, i decided i didn't give a piss on how professional it was. I GOTTA GO!!! :D Just open the door and angle yourself just right, then presto! You just saved yourself a trip to the quick mart. :D

I hear ya dkeisala! We are a bit more privleged than the women folk.
You can also go in the landscape beds where you have plenty of cover from big, old bushes. Just don't pee all on one particular bush, cause we don't want it to have too high a sodium content. If we kill the thing, then we may have no more hiding place. :D

I can honestly say I've never peed at a customer's house, especially in the yard. Never used a bottle or cup inside the truck, or behind the door etc.

I've got a collection of restaurants, gas stations and public parks around town that I stop at. And since I drink a ton of water and liquids during the season, I stop frequently.

tcls83
04-11-2006, 01:12 AM
I usually go way into the woods. Or pee behind a gas station that doesn't have bathrooms. And, yes, in bathrooms if they aren't too far away (not enough public bathrooms around here).

But if I have to take a dump. Then quick a stop by my house is in the plans for the day.

One method I thought up of was "If you don't see any windows or roads (where people can see you) , it's OK to pee."

During a snow storm, when I'm out plowing during the early AM hours, I just stop the truck and take a leak in the road.

Anyone else?

one time i peed in my pants. it was awful. i had one lawn left for the day, i was alone. i knew it would take me like 15-20 min for this lawn. do i find a bathroom, then come back to the lawn? hell with it, i can hold it 20 min. well, i'm halfway done w/the cut, and a neighbor comes over talking about how the contractors who built his house used bad soil , etc etc. i'm holding it, and trying to cut the conversation short :dizzy: well, just as i'm finished mowing and driving the mower halway up the ramp, i lost my battle. peed like a horse. my pants were soaked, there was a huge puddle on my trailer, and it dripped all the way down the road as i drove off. to make matters worse, when i got home, my wifes friend with the huge utters was here. she goes, "o my god, what happened to you?" yes, it was embarresing.

As for me I go in the office bathroom. As for my guys they will lay down as if they were on break whip it out and just let it go.. I told them we do have lots of enclosed trailers on the job site to pick from and go in a gator bottle, but they say it is a waste of time...Good guys I have..:)

i have pissed about every where you can think of. my favorite place to cut a log though was the bed of dads dump truck in the summer. let me tell you get up in the black bed of a full sized dump truck, in the middle of a heat wave. nothing like 10 gallons of sweet running off you while you are doing the dead. when you get back you look like you pissed you self from all the sweet

and all this talk remindes me of the storys of my great grandfather. dad said that he didn't care were he was or who was there, if he needed to pee he did. if you where standing in front of him talking and he needed to ...well you had better back up. these are the kind of people that i wish i could have known....from a few steps back

I go in the customers bathroom. It is a natural bodily function and they are not put off if I knock on the door and ask to go. Hell, they go when they need to. One home I do not even ask, just walk in and do my business. If they are not at home, I have the keys to most of the homes and their permission to go in and use the John.
