One of Those Days

I took the taxi to work this morning as always. And to get onto the fourth ring road, we usually go on an overpass that merges into the mass of cars heading west.

And as the taxi was on the overpass, we saw a car up ahead that had stopped, sort of in the middle of the road. I was glad the taxi driver saw it and slowed down right away.

Was it an accident? Did the car break down?

It was a man, in a suit, standing next to the car, taking a piss.

He left a giant wet puddle in front of him.

Relieved, he just walked back to his car to carry on with his commute.

I don't understand why people do this. Don't they know it's dangerous to just stop along a roadway and of all things, go to the bathroom? Why didn't he go at home before he got into his car? Or couldn't he wait until he got into the office?

Sometimes, when you think you've seen it all, something crazy pops up again and reminds you, TIC -- This Is China.
