Pee as the Wind Blows

Story Sent in by Don:

Audrey and I were on a hike. We had been dating for a little over a month. She had insisted on bringing her little brother, Abe, along. He was 15 and was... socially awkward to say the least. He was loud and obnoxious and made the entire hike a disruptive affair. I had driven us all there together and as much as I didn't want to spend the day with Abe in tow, I put up with him as best I could for Audrey's sake.

It was a weekend so there were several other people out on the trail. At one point Abe said he had to go to the bathroom and so I assumed he'd just go into the trees to do his business. Instead he waited until we passed a couple and Abe whipped out his junk and tried to pee all over them.

They shouted and ran off (thank goodness - it might have come to blows in other circumstances) and I yelled at Abe. "What's wrong with you, you stupid jerk?"

Abe then screamed at me and Audrey held him close. She shouted at me, "What's your problem? He didn't hurt anybody!"

I couldn't believe it. This guy had just exposed himself and tried to pee all over two strangers and yet somehow I was the bad guy. I was so angry at Audrey and Abe both that I stormed away and left them there. Let them find their own way home with those winning personalities.

  1. Everyone sucks in this scenario except the bystanders.
    Did you like that cat book Jared? I was one of the folks that purchased from your Amazon bday wishlist. I'll buy for myself too on a good recommendation.

    1. I don't understand either these people (hey let me abandon you because your brother seems semi-deranged) or the cat book reference.

      Was I supposed to buy Jared something? He seems quite nice and I do like the blog, but is it traditional for the 24th? Was it International Web Master Day? Jared's Birthday? Please advise.

    2. Hi lina! Thanks so much. There didn't seem to be a way to thank people through Amazon so I've been sort of waiting for people to identify themselves. Save the Cat is a great resource and I'm very grateful for you thinking of me. Are you a writer?

    4. Jared, just when I clicked the submit button I realized I didn't provide any information on who bought the book. Haha Glad you enjoyed the book, it wasn't a hard decision to gift with what you provide here.
      I've been told I'm a good writer but haven't nutured the talent.

  2. He obviously has some sort of mental issue. And the kid trying to pee on people isn't normal either.

    Seriously, who the fuck abandons a date and her kid brother in the wilderness? You're a real trophy OP. And by trophy, I mean someone should shoot you and mount you on their wall.

  3. You sound like a prince OP. Who doesn't want to roll the dice on being abandoned after someone else's bad behavior. Clearly she missed out.

  4. Team OP. I wouldn't let the free pee people back in my car, especially if the boy was mad at me. I'd expect an angry poop party in my back seat on the way home.

    1. I agree with you!! I would've been as grossed out as OP was, only I'm a woman.

  5. I'd have abandoned this loose shower faucet as well. Guess I'm just not as into water sports as most.

  6. I'm fully with OP. A 15 year old pissing on passersby is not acceptable. And i remain polite here. There's a possibility that the lad had some sort of learning difficulty. I'm thinking autism spectrum disorder. If it's the case, it would have been a matter of the most basic courtesy on Audrey's part to let him know BEFOREHAND and explain how to deal if anything happens. Anyway, if the lad in question is 15 year old and can talk, this behaviour is still unacceptable even if he was autistic and still needs to be challenged.

    Finally, still assuming there was something wrong with Abe which can explain his behaviour, Audrey is pretty daft if she cannot see why would Don flip.

    1. I have Asperger's and have worked with children and young adults who are low and high on the Autism spectrum and this type of behavior is unlikely.I've known kids with ADHD acting out but being that the brother is 15,it sounds like his problems have not been addressed and instead ignored.He will learn the hard way when he's arrested for indecent exposure and lewdness.The world is not going to see him as a sensitive kid but a disturbed adult.Op was right to be mad but I don't believe in calling kids names or leaving his date and her brother stranded.

    2. I agree Mel. OP's reaction to the date's brother was an overreaction. And leaving them stranded even worse.

    3. The kid could just be a jerk. The world isn't doing those who are genuinely autistic any favours by excusing all asshole behaviour with "maybe s/he's on the spectrum", just as fussy eaters aren't doing genuine coeliacs any favours by claiming allergies at restaurants.

      And I would have left them. They don't sound like they were way off in the middle of nowhere and could likely walk to a transit stop.

  7. Team OP here. I don't care if the kid is on the spectrum or not. It doesn't excuse what he did.

  8. Team OP. Spectrum or no, difficulties or no, there are certain behaviors that are not acceptable in social company, and anyone who is in a double numbered age group should know that. Fifteen is in the double numbered age group
