Peeing Tom

Yesterday evening Nick was on a conference call driving home from work. After pulling into our space, he decided just to hang out in the car until the call was over. Our building's parking lot is next to a smaller house where an elderly couple and some of their grown children live, and our assigned spot is directly across from the couple's front porch. While Nick was sitting in car, he watched the husband slowly maneuver himself out the front door and onto the porch. The man's movement was especially limited not due to creaky bones or arthritic knees, but because his pants were down around his ankles. T0 Nick's great relief, the man was wearing underwear, but his relief was quickly replaced by horror as the man whipped himself out of his briefs and proceeded to pee off the front porch in broad daylight. At this point, Nick told me he buried his head in his hands so that in case the guy saw Nick sitting in the car, he wouldn't think Nick was enjoying the show. I think in this case though, that if you're relieving yourself off your front porch, that you're beyond caring if someone sees you.

When you gotta go, you gotta go. Also I remember hearing that men love going outdoors.

I think you are right, if someone urinates off the front porch, they probably don't care if someone is watching. Maybe he thought he was marking his territory !

I think it was their side door since it's adjacent to our parking lot, so he was really peeing into a garden on the side of his house as opposed to the sidewalk. Nevertheless, I was like I can't believe what I just saw and looked away as fast as I could.

There was an elderly man next door to us who I've seen pee in the yard, he was elderly and frail, so I forgave him.
The kids in the house behind us, for some reason, have to piss in the yard. And the neighbors on the other side, I've heard someone peeing off the 2nd floor deck.
Yeah, Dorchester is heaven.
