Solamente en San Antonio

My city is very clean and the people here are very laid back, as a rule.
My friend Elaine is very funny, yet she's always had sort of a grand sense of dignity and very nice manners.
So, one recent Saturday afternoon, she and my other friend Susan were driving south on San Pedro Avenue, a main thoroughfare that runs into the downtown area.
At a red light just about a mile from the center of downtown, Elaine looked over to see a man in his 40's getting out of a nice white pickup truck with his pants down around his knees.
In shock, she yelled out her window, "Hey!"
The man looked straight into her eyes, then turned around and took a shit right on the sidewalk.
That's all there is to the story, I just had to write about it to get the image out of my head.

Only in San Anton... heh.

Shit on the sidewalk? In broad daylight? Man. Thanks for the image...

That's exactly what I asked Elaine: "In broad daylight?"
I can see peeing in public, anyone who's ever been drunk during Fiesta has peed in one alley or parking garage or another, but shitting on a sidewalk?
It wasn't even diarreah, it was just plain old shit.
And the guy wasn't even a bum- he was driving a clean, late model white pick-up.

Thanks..from your head to mine..

and I thought Cali had most of the nutjobs..was I wrong!

Karen Zipdrive said...

Most of California's true nuts come there from other states, like Ohio.
The natives left a long time ago.
Me included.

Did he squat? Have a roll of t.p. with him? Pull his pants up before getting back into the truck?

I have so many questions .....

Karen Zipdrive said...

He half squatted and stared at my friend while he turned sideways with his ass side facing her and shat.
No toilet paper.
The light turned before he had pinched his final loaf.
They drove off mid-crap, and rather hastily, I might add.

How laid back is that? He wanted to share his digestive success with her. Just like the child who takes pride in the poopy he has made...

How Freudian.

Karen Zipdrive said...

How creepy, you mean.

Did she call in the license plate number to the cops or take a photo for evidence. Wouldn't that count as littering (among other things)? That's pretty gross.
