    Honestly, every single time I have to use a port a potty, I feel like I need to totally disinfect myself when I get back to the truck. Especially when its hot out and things are ripening in that chemical toilet. Especially now with this corona virus fear going on.

    many of us (i know i have) witnessed temp workers on the loading docks (during peak times of the year), using the restrooms to wash thier feet.

    i have seen this more than one time.

    then yes, we have (either had or still have) truckers, supposedly professionals, defecating in the parking lots, or dumping trash, and "bags" of human waste.

    i was very lucky thru my years, to obtain permission to park at a customer over night, for the next day delivery or pick up.

    as such, i RESPECTED that permission, and highly appreciated it.

    however, not everyone obtains permission or appreciates it, thinking they deserve it cuz they are there to serve the customer.

    "in service to the customer" does not mean they have to extend hospitality to all they do business with, due to past transgressions they suffered by a chosen few that feel "they deserve it".

    there are 2 aren't there?

    the dad did one, where he goes after Marlon Brando and the son in the redux version?

    then if i recall, Martin suffered a heart attack(??) while doing that movie, and a son of his DID take his part? till he came back..???

    i'd have to look that up.

    I think they put a urinal in pota-potty more for the ladies. So the guys don't piss all over the seat.

    It's hard to fight "stupid". :)

    I think the Redux was an edited version. They added scenes that were left out and extended the movie. I believe it was all original. I think. I meant how much they looked alike at that age. Crazy
