We've been having an issue at the office lately and it is not work related. For the past 7-8 months when I pull into my parking spot in front of the shop there is water on the concrete that has appeared from nowhere. It seems to be coming from the concrete curb thingys we pull up to. Then B noticed on the camera a person come up to the curb, sit and proceed to pour water on their head, like washing the hair, this summer. Sometimes there is a white substance and we can't figure out what it is. I'm afraid it is some kind of drugs they are pouring out and then we walk over. Shiver! Last week I was out front with The Hubby while he was checking my tires and I told him that something smelled like S#?t. I looked around and there on the curb was S#?t! Pee YEW!!! The Hubby washed it off and then we started looking back at the tapes of this person, soon to be found out is a woman. She is homeless and sure enough she comes up, when we shut down for the day, evening time, sits on the curb but as she is sitting she is pulling her pants down and doing her business. The front of our business has become her bathroom where she showers and S#?t's. The white powder stuff is rock salt. Go figure that one out. She actually washes the urine down the drive with bottled water which we found her stash behind a summer vine that died and pulled up. I told The Hubby that he needed to call the police. I know she is homeless but for goodness sake our parking lot, that we walk over, is not her bathroom. It was so unsanitary for us. Saturday, The Hubby again found evidence she was there and called the police to look at the surveillance tapes and the evidence drying up. He was truly scratching his head, dumbfounded by what he saw. The next day, Sunday, about 9:30 am The Hubby shuffled into his den room to check his emails and then decided to check the cameras at the shop. Lo and behold there she was. He hollered at me that she was walking up, sitting, and doing her thing. He immediately called 911 and we watched as she finished her job, walked off and not less than 2 minutes later the police, 2 cars, drove past. That is all we could do. The Hubby got showered and dressed and then headed to the office to do some invoicing and see what happened. He said when he arrived there were the two police cars across the street watching. He went over and asked if they caught her. They said yes indeed they had and they questioned her. She is in the system, indeed homeless and so filthy dirty, especially on her face that they could not even make out if she was white, Indian or even black. So sad. She is one of the homeless mental cases around town and is my age. It breaks my heart. They told her that she could not do that anymore and that she was being video taped but were not sure it would sink in. As far as we can tell she has stopped but only time will tell if she comes back. The police said that we need to be there to press charges so they can get her into the system for a bit. She is probably supposed to be on meds and is not. That is what happens I'm sure.
