Today I caught a fellow human being taking a crap in the street in front of my office. I own a catering/delivery company and my wife and I were loading up some bags into the back of her Ford Focus in preparation for a 30 pizza delivery [we were going to get the pizza from one of our partner restaurants]. On my 2nd trip out of the office, bags in hand, I start to get a whiff of the nastiest, port-a-potty-ish smell I've ever experienced in the area. I looked at the ground beside her car and at first I thought a piece of cardboard was possibly covering some dog turds. But I kept walking about 8 feet and then I saw this low-life waste of a person crouching in the corner taking a dump. This guy had to be at least 55-60 years old and was bent over leaning on his cane. I started yelling at him as loud as possible and incorporating every swear word that I could think of. He was trying to make excuses as to why he was there, but what excuse could you possibly make in this situation?!? Someone just caught you taking a dump on a public street. After I got done yelling and swearing, I look around me and there are about 10-12 other people looking at this guy. They guy starts mumbling and talking about he'll come back tomorrow to clean it up. I go inside and have an employee call the cops and then I go back outside and he's still there. I start yelling again and it takes every bit of restraint I have not to beat him with his own cane. The cops came but couldn't find him. Later when I got done with the delivery (and my nerves calmed down a bit) I came back and got my car and as I was driving away I saw him sitting in a park just down the street. I stopped at the police station on my way home and I'm not sure what they said to him, but they assured me that he wouldn't do that again. I've caught several of his cohorts going #1 in the street and had to yell at them but this guy was a first for me. And the worst part??? The cops told me that I would have to clean it up! Apparently the sanitation department won't come out for this type of thing even though it's on a public street. So that's what I have to look foward to tomorrow at work. I have a staff of almost 20 people - how can I ask them to come to work in this kind of environment? I can't wait to find a new office.
