    Good manners and reality suggest that when we are out of our homes and familiar surroundings that we should familiarize ourselves with the new areas, its laws and habits and customs :( . We must never assume that we are at home at all times.

    At the reported age of 58, one might certainly empathize with the not so young man’s urge to purge; however, as members of civilized society we cannot indiscrimantly unleash our members any and everywhere to relieve ourselves. Though this unfortunate violator got busted, many other perps continue to spray with impunity. As one with a relatively active bladder, I can only advise that better planning and less fluid intake before heading out (when possible) can go a long way in reducing the need to urinate. Peeing in public spaces should not be an option. Not to excuse this chronic and unsanitary behaviour in our beautiful but sometime smelly “Nature Isle”, the pungent pissy odor has also offended my nostrils while walking the sidewalks of skyscraper filled New York. Maybe all munincipalities need to ensure the availability and convenience of clean public restrooms which should go a long way in addressing the problem.

    While it isn’t true that people may be suffering from illnesses that cause them to be incontinent, there are too many corners in Roseau with urine stench. I suggest that the RCC, environmental health and the government invest in more public conveniences to facilitate passing of waste.

    :?: I don’t want to pass any judgment,but men on the island of Waitukubuli are notorious for that! They remove their male anatomy anywhere in public to urinate! A great number of men on the island are uncivilized! From what i’ve observed,the island is full of vagabonds!

    Wonder if he had a problem, and if he had pre on himself and it ran off onto the road I wonder if he would still be charged.

     Before you all condemned the man for urinating in public; have any of you take the time to think he might have a medical problem which renders him unable to control his urine?

    Normally, an individual balder can only accommodate 300 ml of urine, if this man is a hyperglycemic, the  high volume of glucose in his system draws all of his body fluids into his bladder, amounting to a lot more than 300 ml (milliliter) of urine, when that happens it can cause serious medical issues, in the urinary tract.

    While you believe he took his habit with him out of Dominica; do any of you know if the man is not suffering from the disease incontinence; which is the inability for one to control their excretory functions?

    In this case consider that immoderation, or excess equals the disease known as incontinent! There are people also suffering from fecal incontinence, that is the inability to control bowel  movements which are both psysiologic, and psychologic conditions and can be contributing…

    Lets be reasonable..not everyone can hold it until they get home or get to some restroom if there is..It’s either they piss down themselves or put it down where ever..And right here in New York I’ve seen folks pissing in the trains sometimes in between the train cars..I saw an elderly man pulled his penis outta his pant and piss in a bottle,,he did not even get up from his sit..And I’m not talking about mid night when the trains got very few people,,I’m talking about the evening rush hour..So some folks just can’t keep it and they gotta put it down..It’s a whole different story if he did it in a manner of exposing himself,,at a bus stop in front of folks..not good…
    It’s an offence here in the US but I’ve seen folks do it all over the place since most of the business places do not allow folks to use their restroom if they are not buying something…guys put it down and even women I’ve seen do it in Manhattan when they’re out partying….

  12. Modern times
    November 15, 2018

    How is it taken care of in modern cities? The gov’t has to enact laws or ordinances to address this by requiring businesses that serve the public to have restrooms for their customers and public by default. That will take care of us when we have a mal-pissa so we don’t have to step between buildings to urinate. After all, these are modern times and stand-alone public toilets are an eye sore anyway. (You have done it too, so oops oops….no thumbs down please) :wink:

    • November 18, 2018

      Some big stores like Macy’s, Best buy, Home Depot their restrooms are open to the public wether you’re buying or not but many of the others you gotta be buying something to use their restrooms. Before they had keys to the restrooms now it’s buzzers you’re buzzed in from the front counter.And it’s all about the dollar over here.Then due to the high use of drugs many limit their restrooms.Folks go in there and get it on right there over dosing in the peoples place. Pissing in public is something that’s happening all over.
      Back in the days in Roseau the city council would have workers out very early in the morning hooking up hoses to the fire hydrants and they would hose down the place,they would go from street to street and whilst the hoses would have a lot of holes,they would give the place so much water there would be no such smell.Whatever happen to that they’ve got enough water down there to take care of that problem….

    I understand this move. Castries reaks of urine in some areas. Here in Dominica we have no public restrooms that are suitable for decent people. Our public conveniences are highly deplorable. So here the average dominican pees and sometimes poops anywhere, once people not seeing them. And sometimes even if people seeing them they dont care. How does this affect society (healthwise and social wise)?

    In the US if you are caught urinating in public you can be charged for indecent exposure and have your name registered as a sex offender in some states. Again here in the caribbean we do things differently, but we need to get out of certain habits. This is one of the freedoms many of us still enjoy non the less. However, when you travel to other countries Dominicans, please adjust to your surroundings, Dont just pull it out, or heist up ur skirt and let it flow freely because you think you have a right. Because guess what? the police have right too, they have a right to arrest you.

      Karl Orndem i suspect you talking off your head reminiscing about when you grew up in Dominica donkey years ago,but news flash, this is not the same Dominica and yes we have public facilities that are very well kept so to sasy what you said is laying unfair criticism on the cleaners who put their all in keeping these facilities tidy… i only hope one of them is your family so they can set you straight!!!!!!!

      ” Here in Dominica we have no public restrooms that are suitable for decent people. Our public conveniences are highly deplorable.

    We are custom to do it here in roseau, so are you surprised?? We have lost our good manners, we have lost respect for each other, respect for the State, the city, the youth et erderly ect. It will take time and good example to follow in order to restore that in our society!! But ….. Oh i m sorry.. This is not my Dam business. !!!! Good luck dominica

    That is a very significant rule that should be established in Dominica this age and time, if it is so at present time. As the saying goes: “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” And parking the pee-per any place should be against the rules j

        Is the P.M. that said that “nonsense” about no law, no constitution. So Why should people not follow what he says. According to his wife is God that sent him to us, after all. We will not let him forget this arrogance.

      Elizabeth, when the British left Dominica the left the ” indecent exposure law in effect.”  I remember people not only in Roseau, but in the villages too get arrest for urinating on the side of the street.

      That is a very stupid law, and one which could  be won easily by simple proving the victim has a medical condition over which they have no control.

      Right now I have a case in court, which I a fighting, its simply as not buckling-up my seat belt, the citation cost $160.00 dollars, which I believe I should not pay due to a medical condition. I take insulin at least three times per day leaving parts of my belly (injection site) painful when the seat belt rubs on the injection site it is painful, so all I have to do is go to court present the evidence to substantiate, and justify why I did not utilize my seat belt the day I caught and sited. 

      The law is not written in stone!

      • Wise-up
        November 17, 2018

        Painful injection site? Hmmmm. Sir I believe you need to get a doctor’s assessment of the “painful injection site”. No site should be that painful that should prevent you from using a seat belt omfirtably. I believe that site might be infected if it is that painful. In addition there are other sites such a your both thighs. Why not rotate the sites? That would save you from all the painful issues.

      • Francisco Etienne-Dods Telemaque
        November 17, 2018

        There are only so many sites on an individual body where one can inject themselves effectively in the processes of taking insulin. The most appropriate part of the body in the belly; the  stomach area in soft tissue.

        The tissues of the body are softer in that area, which is the recommended site for such treatment.

        If you were not an idiot who do not know what the hell you are talking about, you would not talk sot!

        How can you tell someone who has a medical  background how to treat themselves. As a diabetic I have the best cardiologists, the best kidney specialist, monitoring me every ninety days; I have an internal specialists in the treatment diabetes whom I visit every two months! I also have an eye specialists I visit every four months.

        In addition to that I paid a nurse to look after me home, until we became involved, she moved into my permanently! 

        Am not stupid Dominica okay I have the best doctors. 

      • November 18, 2018

        Telemaque you are saying that everyone should park their pee pee any place especially in the city. where the Government is trying to attract visitors, by claiming that they have a medical condition?

        And if what you said about the British Law was true, why is it that in 2008, when I tried to stand behind a rum shop, to relax while I look at the movement of the Rosea River–something which I love to do in the packs of Toronto, where there is a water running creek–the stench of pee-pee (urination) almost caused me to suffocate, holding on to my breath to get out of there as soon as I could?

        It is not healthy to inhale the stench of urination, blended with alcohol–especially when that substance has been there for a long time bitten by the sun. How many people do you think have a medical condition compared to the number of people who might contract some illness by inhaling the dirty stench of pee? It has happened to me
