What happened on the way to getting my umbrella
I sat at a bus stop bench. A guy came up and said, no preamble, "I'm gonna take a leak." I got up to give him more, um, room. He said no, don't move, he needed a shoulder to lean on to do it.
I made semi-inarticulate noises. And crossed the street.
And this crossed my mind: "Y'know, in some places, I'd have to pay to get that..." ;-)
