D.I.E Pissing

Posted on Updated on

Whether you’re driving through the inner streets of Cairo or the dual carriage ways such as the ring road, you are bound to see a car parked on the road side, not because it’s broken or simply taking a rest from a long drive. What you will find is a man or in some cases men scattered about near the car, what can only be described as crudely as PISSING. The amount of time the wife and I have seen grown men pissing on the road sides, next to lamp posts, hard shoulder of a dual carriage way and even in the middle of a large connecting road. I find it utterly surprising that they have no shame in doing this. I make a point of using my car horn and letting them know that this is disgusting.

What I find even more surprising is that Cairo is known as the city of a thousand minarets, which means there are at least a thousand mosques in Cairo and this means that there are at least a thousand public toilets for people to use. I am not even mentioning all the new mosques that have opened up and the countless fast food chains that exist throughout Cairo, which all have toilets. These are grown men that have never been potty trained. I have seen professionals with suits, pissing about like animals. It’s like they get in to their car without thinking where they are going and as soon as they feel the need to go, they do, and they do it anywhere, anytime. Please stop behaving like animals and have respect for your surroundings that you live in. If anyone needs potty training, I am sure this can be arranged.

    LOL! Guess what? We live right next to empty private land, which is protected by walls. So these taxi drivers have to use this wall and the pavement which ppl walk on, as a urinating ground. Walking past it is not an option because of the stench! Let’s hope they are potty trained soon!

      But I get surprised at how Islam emphasis on being pure and clean and yet people are totally the opposite of that. That is just common sense isn’t it?

    Definitely common sense! I’d like to give them 72+ excuses but I can’t believe every one of these drivers has a weak bladder.

      I have been in Egypt for two years now and I am sorry I still cannot get over this…
