I guess they should have hidden in the bushes. Some people have no clue about running a business.

Funny that you said that RLC, there was a artical in the paper (NWHerald) the other day about a woman who was cooking dinner and looked outside in her back yard only to find a man peeing on a bush. She called the police though and the guy turned out to be a known sexual affender.

Must be popular nowadays, lol.

Never been caught (yet)

I drink too much coffee in the mornig- this time of year I may not break a real sweat all day. Gotta find a backyard bush or something somewear! I'm not going to inflict my dusty, smelly body on someone's living room or office.

As long as some one doesn't see you it is a necessary part of the business. If female customers see us then it's the worst senario.

Cordially,
Sheppard

Not exactly. Sometimes it pays to advertise.

I think she definitly overreacted and just was looking for an excuse to get rid of them. or maybe she was just upset that she didnt have a better view of a natural body function. least he didnt do it on her car tires like some dogs do. I swear i cut this one person yard and while I am off the mower to shut the gate behind me their dog whizzes on my mower tire--happens everytime
