That's just the thing. my 4 man crew is running 4-6 yards per hour so we are never at a yard for more than 10-15 minutes. With 4 guys I'm not driving them to the gas station to piss every hour bc not all of them are going to go at the same time. Like I said we are drinking tons of water to stay hydrated. I have to pee once sometimes twice per hour. I'd easily lose over an hour just on pee breaks myself.

Maybe nobody quite understood. when we do pee it's in someones backyard on the very side of the house all the way down to the fence (peeing in the corner of the fence where absolutely no one would ever see our weiners. We always make sure there are no windows where someone might glance out and see us doing the deed. This guy just got curious and went out to check and went all the way around his house literally completely around the house to find him. Now had he been in the middle of the backyard peeing in his flowerbed and his wife looked out and could see him yah.

I guess i'm just a southern boy used to peeing off my back porch instead of the toilet.

Just use a big bottle in the truck and watch for people. You just got to watch out for those little old ladies that like to walk out to give you a check.

i looked at my original post. it did make it sound like i was making excuses to the customer. I meant that i kept apologizing over and over and said it would never happen again. The part where I was making my excuses was to all of you on here. i never said any of that to the customer. def smarter than that when a customer is pissed off about something. I always make sure they know i agree with them they are completely right and will not happen again. I guess i just think of it as if someone was at my house say working on my hot tub and had to pee i wouldn't give two shits if they went down on the side of the house and peed on the fence.

I understand that when you gotta go, you gotta go. But keep in mind that if you get caught by the wrong person, you could wind up as a registered sex offender.

Same here. Might install hose with a funnel on the end and have it drain under trailer. Not sure on this yet, but thinking on it.

I think the hose draining on the street is a bad idea. A jug and empty at the end of the day.

Well, I used to do that in my earlier years but once or twice I ran into trouble as well,
and I mean a lot of folks don't realize it but that stuff stinks!

More than anything that's what stops me, even days or a week later the smell could offend someone.
What if relatives are out to visit, and ohhh what's that smell, omg it really smells over HERE, what's that?
Whether number one or two, but can you imagine Aunt Olga finding that brownie?

Why not, why stop at number one, why not go all the way, number two's the one that truly can't wait anyhow if you ask me.

And it's all right with some folks but not at all with others so I keep an empty big mouth gatorade bottle in my truck and since tinted windows are illegal here I pretend to do paperwork, number two's a bit trickier but I'll unhook the trailer because it's easier to drive and if there's no time I'd still rather go in my pants than in some customer's back yard (that having been said I haven't had any accidents yet).

All in all I think it's been 7 or so years since the last time I went in someone's back yard,
today the thought still crosses my mind at times but I just won't do it.
