I yelled at Chuck Norris in my car because Big Bird said to and he's my leader!

Yesterday, I had an oral history interview in Carrollton. I got a little lost trying to find the interviewee's house in this kind of winding residential area off Josey Lane. Pausing briefly on a quiet corner, I stopped to check my map and directions.

About 50 feet in front of me on the opposite side of the street was an elderly gentleman walking slowly with a cane. Upon arriving at the wooden fence at the corner house, the man turned to faced the fence, unzipped his pants, and proceeded to pee.

Shocked by accidentally witnessing this behavior, I took my car out of park and started to drive down the street. I guess the old man hadn't seen me, because my suddenly moving car seemed to startle him. He quickly zipped up his pants, turned in my direction, smiled and waved in a way that seemed to say, "this will be our little secret."

My question is: did the old man suddenly have to pee while walking (hey, it happens) or did he intentionally walk to the corner to relieve himself on his neighbor's wood fence?

Just routinely marking his territory, NBD

That is common occurrence here- in fact I've seen much more than peeing... you haven't lived til you see someone squatting to take a dump by a tree as you walk to town. Good times.
