On a lighter topic, this came up in a local morning show in Detroit.

I repeat, if you don't like bathroom humor, this is your last chance...
There's a local story where a guy from DTE Energy was caught by a
homeowner peeing in her garden... right on her strawberry plants.
Nice. So the show took calls from people on similar circumstances and
the question was placed on those people who work outside all day, maybe
driving from site to site, how do they handle the bathroom situation.
Some of the "hightlights":
One guy cleaned windows, and one of his customers gave him the code to
her house and allowed him to use the bathroom, even though he said he
didn't like having to use a customer's bathroom. He did a #2, and when
he was leaving, the woman's daughter came home, they passed in the
hallway, she entered the bathroom, and about 1.5 seconds later exited
Some of the not so great stories: Builders who did #2 the holes for
sump pumps. Another guy who installed carpet said that a common
practice for them was to find a remote road (dirt road), do a #2 in old
carpet padding, roll it up and tie it, and put it on the bumper of
their truck and "forget" it when they drive off!
Finally, a guy called up and said he had 2 chimney sweeps over for
about 3 hours. One of the guys asked if he could use the bathroom, and
he said yes. The guy was in there for 15 minutes and left. Home
owners wife goes into bathroom and starts emptying laundry hamper.
Chimney sweep apparently soiled himself, wrapped his underwear in
newspaper, and threw it in the hamper!!! WTF?!?!
