Just when you think you've seen everything, somehow, Lubbock tops itself.

I've held on to this picture for a few weeks because I was still shocked when it happened and struggled with how to bring it to you. But here we go.

I was sitting in my truck, finishing up a phone call at a local business (which will remain unnamed for their sake) when I spotted a couple of guys sitting in a truck not far from me. They were pounding beers like no tomorrow, and obviously, eventually, nature was going to take its course.

I hung up the phone just as this piece of crap upstanding citizen got out of his truck and walked (actually stumbled) to the back and immediately began to relieve himself.

Right in the parking lot. Right in public. In front of the world.

At first, I wasn't sure what I was seeing until I looked more carefully and saw that Necky McRedneck was in mid-stream. I was incredulous, but immediately opened the camera on my phone and snapped a picture because no one was going to believe this story without proof.

There he was, pissing the night away.

I'm posting the unedited picture below, which may be NSFW, so proceed with caution.

As he finished, blissfully unaware that his image had been captured for posterity, he clambered back into his truck (a company work truck, BTW) and cracked open another cold one with his buddy. No hand washing, no nothing. Just disgusting.

I eventually decided to just leave because I was going to have to walk past these jokers and I didn't want to smell this guy's handiwork.

So, once again: what the hell, Lubbock? This can't be representative of who we are...is it? This guy is every stereotype of what people outside of West Texas perceive us as: rednecks who drink too much and don't give a crap.

Let's show some pride, for crying out loud. Or, maybe, if you gotta go, find a bush or something.
