Salty puddle

Having peed inside houses in Salt Lake for twenty-one years, I haven't found a place other than the complex at the Karunamoyee bus-stand where one can pee inside Salt Lake outside homes. The total disregard by the civic authorities for basic human necessities such as urinating, is appalling. Of course, now all the fancy loos in all the fancy restaurants, shopping malls and departmental stores go a long way in covering up for the civic authorities' inadequacy but still one is aware that the commoner will not be allowed in such posh places. Therefore the commoner is forced to relieve (himself) in public or suffer physical agony (herself).

Excellent point.

I like the phrase: 'inside Salt Lake outside homes' :P

@ouroboros: not if I am related to them or if they happen to be family friends whose residences I graced as a peeing child.

as an ageing man I am always looking for discreet places to accept the necessity of doing what comes naturally - but sometimes with little warning. I stood in some bushes with my friends once after we had been to the pub. We remembered how in the old days we could have had twelve pints before coming out here - now we meet so often after just one.
