I'm wearing hip waders to the beach from now on

I am trippin' right now as a little kid - maybe 3-years-old - pees on the beach about 10 feet from us. As other beachgoers watch and no doubt make mental note to not walk barefoot over that particular patch of wet sand, his parents laugh. No, his parents aren't wolves.


  • Hilarious! But then again not at at all. For real, that's some bit your tongue OFF ish.

  • This could go both ways. I mean on the one hand, fish have to go to the bathroom somewhere and just why do you think sea water is salty? And on the other hand, I think this is an example of why dysentery hasn't been eradicated and mumps is on the rise again.

    I fall on the side of protecting public health--TAKE THE KID TO THE RESTROOM!!! He's obviuosly potty trained enough to hit the toilet water.

  • This really does not surprise me.
    I work in retail, in a fortune 500 company and we have people who do this in the fitting room. And frequently, I might add. Not just children, but adults. On the chairs, in the floor. We have cleaned the carpet in our women's fitting room 4 times in the last month and a half. I love your blog and think it should be a column on the uncivilized behavior of a "civilized" world.
