1. eew...
Surely he could have found SOMEPLACE where he could have used the bathroom..

With everyone & their uncle having cellphone cameras these days, anyone who is out & about should think that they are always on-camera..

How embarrassing for him and his family, even if he did do that disgusting thing:(

6. in some suburbs it might be harder to find a public bathroom than you'd think
I taught community college at an outlying suburb of LA and asked my students if there was a 7-11 or gas station nearby where I could buy a quart of oil. They said the nearest was 15 minutes away on the freeway. I believed them because there were no businesses of any kind nearby that I could see.

7. They're really crackin' down aren't they?
I imagine he found a good use for those Home Depot ads, but I think I'll be handling my mail by the edges for a while.

11. I wonder ....
How/if he washed his hands? Lotta' bad joo joo associated with fungi and bacteria contained in feces. Conjunctivitis (pink eye) comes to mind, right off the top of my head.

12. Purell is a possibility... in any case
you'll find public bathrooms on street corners in Europe because they've figured out that sometimes you just have to go.

26. And here in America, IF you can find a bathroom,
the store usually expects you to buy something if you are going to use it.

17. Around here the mail carriers wear exam/surgical gloves. No Joke.
Makes me wonder if the mail is dirtier than their feces.

18. Being somewhat disabled, I don't get out a whole lot, but...
it seemed like every winter I would still get sick somehow.

I figured it might be the mail. So once I started washing my hands after handling mail, or packages from UPS, I wasn't sick as often.

So yeah...dirty mail...I can believe that

35. Just another one of those teachers...er, I mean gov't employees
doing what they do best. Was this a gov't carrier or a contract carrier? City carrier or rural or contract? You know there are different classes of USPS letter carriers, right?

You know, kinda like the gov't teachers versus the "private school" teachers.
