It's the movement down and back towards the fly that you have to be careful of. I've gone in the middle of the street in a truck wheel well. Nobody even looked at me because it just looked like I was resting my arms on the bed rails. And they didn't notice the stream of fluid
hahahaha

we are part of nature and we should be allowed to be natural. but if the customer is concerned (probably most are) then i wouldnt let them see you doing it.

The biggest mistake was trying to explain, or "rationalize" it to the client.
That would have ticked me off to have someone try to make excuses for their employee pi$$ing in my yard.

I dont get mad when dogs do their business in my yard, but I would if a human was peeing on the side of my house. Would you want someone to pee on your home, especially in the bushes you may trim. Get some class, or a bucket

You should have told your customer that you wouldn't charge him for watering his shrubs for free! When ya gotta go... ya gotta go. It would probably be better not to go that close to a customer's house. Behind a shed or in the woods next time!
