It’s No Piddling Matter

There’s a football (rugby league) competition between NSW and Queensland each year, the State of Origin, with the winner being the side who wins the most of the three games played. End of background.

This year, after the last State of Origin game, a story came out in the papers that a woman had been spotted urinating in her seat during the match. Yes, you read that correctly. A grown woman (44 y/o) drops her pants in the middle of a crowded stadium, slides partly off her seat, urinates, and then pulls her pants back up. Not once taking her eyes off the action on the field. Some days later, of course, a video of it hits YouTube.

Today, in the Brisbane Sunday papers, one of the columnists raised a curly question. Who was the worst-behaved, the woman who actually did the deed (gross as it was) or the low-life who taped it and put it on YouTube for the world’s delectation? A tricky one indeed, and one I’d value the opinion of fellow e-Hellions about.  0717-11

I went hunting for the video in question and found it.  The middle-aged woman is perched on the edge of her plastic seat urinating into it creating a puddle in the dip/concave area of the seat.  As she stands up, the seat flips back into upright position obviously draining the urine onto the floor and she pulls her pants back up and joins another female companion at the railing.  She never missed a beat watching the game.   And she very clearly mooned everyone behind her.    She’s so engrossed in watching the game that she is utterly oblivious to the videographer cackling his head off as he films her.

So, who is the worst behaved?  That’s like asking, “Which Barbarian is worse?  The one that kills you with a sword or the one that kills you with a spear?”   You are dead either way.

I’d have to say that this is somewhat a supply and demand issue.  There are always voyeurs and creeps out there who would love to exploit a situation for their personal gratification and pleasure.   They have the “demand”, i.e. the desire to view, witness and/or record the strange and bizarre.    People like the peeing woman supply them with the material they crave.   If there was no supply of crass, vulgar people behaving in socially bizarre ways, there would be no material for them to satisfy their cravings.   So, if the woman had not peed in her seat in  a public place, there would have been nothing to video, no YouTube publication, no brouhaha, no email to Ehell.    So, I guess I come down harder on the woman for initiating the sequence of events.

But sure to come up in the comments is how often men urinate in public.   In searching for an image to accompany today’s post, I happened upon *many* images of men just whipping it out to pee wherever their little bladders desired.  Note to the guys,  umm….that’s pretty gross, too.  It’s one thing to take a leak in the woods well hidden away from sight but peeing in public places is just vulgar and disgusting.

    I haven’t seen the video, so I’d say that the video-maker is only the worst if the video showed private parts. In other words – is it borderline pornographic? And even then, it’s a tie.

    Otherwise, the eHell primacy must go to the pee-er. That’s just wrong on multiple levels. Plus, as you say, it intiates the whole chain of events.

    I’ve gone in an astoundingly wide variety of places. A bathroom isn’t always available, especially when you’re on mile 4 of a 10 mile hike. I’ve also gone on the side of a road when I’m miles from the nearest bathroom. Once I had to go in a concert parking lot. (Traffic was really backed up to get out of there and the only bathrooms were inside the venue, which I could no longer access. That was pretty desperate!) Hey, when you gotta go, you gotta go. But there were bathrooms available for this woman, so it isn’t at all the same. It’s easier for men because they don’t have to drop trou entirely, but the same restrictions ought to apply. You only get to go outside of a bathroom when 1) you REALLY have to go and 2) there is no alternative. When the alternative is just inconvienent, but still there, it doesn’t count.

  • Dear! July 18, 2011, 7:21 am

    Ick! In this situation, I would say the football tinkler has a one way ticket to the pits of gross hell…..and in the situation I kind of hope that she was inebriated and this is not her normal behaviour……Saying that, I just cannot fathom how a grown woman, would just pull her pants down in public, do her business and them let it flip back on whoever it may. I think it is actually a bit sad. Has this woman hit her rock bottom after one or two too many booze? Is she that addicted to football? Is she just that nasty? We have all done some stupid things, mostly in college, but nothing like this and especially at 44!. As you can tell by my post I am just too shocked by this woman for coherant words…..

    However, the gent who posted it probably giggled all the say to the “submit” buttom and was probably sober, byt the time he did it….or not.

    I say send them both to ehell, get the lady an adult diaper and the man a bit of maturity. But, honestly, I might have told this tale of yuck to a friend as a good ole potty joke and gotton a giggle by the sheer madness of it, but not posted the vid or filmed it. That’s just wrong. No doubt that woman’s identity has been found out by those who know her, and she is a laughing stock. Despite her nasty act, no one deserves national public shame. …..Leave that for criminals who go scott free…..

  • Izzy July 18, 2011, 7:23 am

    I sure hope that was a blues supporter!
    While the video is completely inappropriate, I think if nobody recorded it then nobody would believe it! How gross

  • gramma dishes July 18, 2011, 7:31 am

    LOL! I rarely go anywhere without a camera of some kind or another, and I must confess that had I witnessed this bizarre event (and could have whipped out my camera in time) I would definitely have photographed it. Not to put it on YouTube, but I absolutely would have showed it to friends and relatives simply to prove that I wasn’t making stuff up. “See! It really did happen!”

    Now if this ‘lady’ had accidentally wet her pants that would have been an entirely different story. I would never take a picture of someone who was genuinely humiliated and embarrassed by something that had “just happened”. But this woman obviously did what she did quite deliberately and she can’t possibly be surprised that other people noticed.

  • Hollanda, UK July 18, 2011, 7:33 am

    I’ve seen women and men alike urinate in public, in plain view, and I find it disgusting. We’re not animals, we are humans, and we have public toilets for that. I know it could be argued that “it’s natural”, so why hide it? Natural it may be, but that does not make it acceptable. For one thing, walking past where someone has urinated smells disgusting. For snother thing, it is unhygienic. I know there are people who are “caught short” genuinely and have limited control of their bladder, and cannot help it – these people are not in discussion.

    So, who is more to blame, him or her? In my opinion, it is the woman, but the person who recorded the event should not go without blame either! What sort of person records such a base act? The same sort of sicko who records people having intercourse in pubilc. The same sort of person who may record another person getting beaten up in public. Where does it all end?

    IMO, we all have a responsibility to behave socially acceptably and if I saw this sort of behaviour I would certainly have distanced myself from the perpetrator immediately. Some people find it funny, but I just don’t see the amusement in it. There is nothing remotely humourous about spreading germs around in public. I take it that at this game, there would have been adequate toileting facilities? We can only hope that after being humiliated so publicly, this woman thinks twice about doing the same thing again and next time, uses a toilet like the majority of responsible, normal, right-thinking adults, even if it does mean missing a few minutes of the game. Shame on her. She needs to grow up.

  • Angel July 18, 2011, 7:48 am

    How culpable do we hold the people who view the video?

  • Margo July 18, 2011, 7:49 am

    Ew! I think they tie for equal E-Hell status. The peeing is very unpleasant and anti-social, but deliberately recirding it and putting it on you-tube? Just as bad. I think it would have been justified to record to pass to the stadium management so that they could take action if they wished.

    I once had a similar experience at an office I worked in – a client was in the waiting area, and suddenlyt just squatted down and peed in a corner of the waiting room. (and this is a carpeted area, with a plate-glass window facing onto the street, so she was visiable not only to our reception staff and to the other people waiting, but also any passers-by in the street. It was so quick there was no time to stop her (even if anyone had realised what she was about to do) . And had she bothered to ask, we had a bathroom she could have used. Utterly unbeliveable. She was furious when we told her she was not welcome to return and would have to find other representation…

  • Liz July 18, 2011, 8:16 am

    Its the state of origin, its religion! @ DEAR! I doubt that she’ll be a laughing stock, she’d more likely be laughed with -Australian humour is like that, she’ll be excused/understood because its State of Origin.

  • Hemi Halliwell July 18, 2011, 8:18 am

    That is so completely gross. They both deserve e-hell. Maybe a few pits lower for the woman.

  • Bint July 18, 2011, 8:21 am

    The woman peeing goes to Ehell. The filmer doesn’t. It was revolting and unpleasant, and many revolting, unpleasant things are filmed and shared with the world for various reasons. Look at some of what’s on YouTube. We don’t know the filmer’s motivation anyway. Maybe they filmed it to report her with evidence and it got passed around after that.

    I can’t believe someone would actually do that.

  • AMC July 18, 2011, 8:54 am

    Utterly disgusting. I feel sorry for anyone around her who not only had to witness the incident but then had to sit there and smell the foul mess. Gross! It reminds of an incident that happened to me this past year. I was still living in my old apartment building. I was on the second floor and had a neighbor who lived directly across the hall from me. While sitting at home about to head out and run errands, I heard someone knock loudly on my neighbor’s door. He seemed insistant as he knocked several times despite no answer. A minute or two later, I walked out my door to leave. The man was standing very close to the wall with his back to me. He seemed startled by me. There was definately something odd about him but I couldn’t put my finger on it, so I left. A short while later, I returned from my errands, and as I walked into the building I smelled something funny. On a hunch, I looked toward my neighbor’s door and sure enough there was a dark puddle on the carpet. I realized that at the moment I had walked out my door, this grown man who looked old enough to be my father was peeing in the hallway. I was livid! I called management and they cleaned it up, but since no one knew who this guy was he got away with it. There was no excuse for this. It was spring and there is a wooded area behind the building. If he had to go that bad, he could have gone outside. I would’ve prefered that to him peeing on the carpet outside my door and stinking up the hallway.

  • LonelyHound July 18, 2011, 8:55 am

    I agree with The Elf. In a situation where bathrooms are available but inconvenient is no excuse for this type of behavior. Like The Elf said there are situations where you have no other choice. I have been hiking on trails with no bathrooms at all. Not even at the trailhead! That is when you hide to the best of your ability and pray to pee fast. I have also been in desperate situations where, to this day, I still cringe in shame. This woman was neither desperate nor embarrassed by a bladder malfunction. She literally used a public venue to urinate! I am torn on the video poster. Though he was crass and childish for posting that video. I do wonder if some viewed as a cautionary tale. I also wonder… Did the woman even sit back down in her seat?

  • SHOEGAL July 18, 2011, 9:02 am

    I hope that woman is utterly motified that thousands upon thousands have now watched her urinating on UTube and is now being discussed in length about how disgusting and gross she is and barbecued on EHell. I hope all this has taught her a lesson to have more dignity in the future.

    Unfortunatley, though I suspect that she isn’t motified and completely justifies the behavior. Unbelievable.

  • baby July 18, 2011, 9:34 am

    Back when I was waiting tables, myself and a few co-workers would go out to the alley to have a cigarette at the end of our shifts. One of my fellow waitresses would (vulgarly) tell us that she needed to relieve herself, and would actually go into the back of the alley, pull down her pants, and squat in the corner, because she didn’t want to have to go back inside before she left. Ew.

  • LovleAnjel July 18, 2011, 9:46 am

    I found the video (send me to e-hell too!), and the most flesh you see is her lower back & buttocks. She is clearly unashamed – she doesn’t look around to see if anyone is watching, doesn’t make any attempt to pretend to be doing something else (if that sounds ridiculous, think about if one’s undergarments ride up painfully and have to be adjusted – you look around, then quickly reach in & pretend to have been looking for something in your pants pockets).

    Now, I have an extremely small bladder & unhappy digestive system, so I have to keep an eye out for restrooms wherever I go. I have had to pull over to the side of a busy highway & use the bushes because it’s still twenty miles to the next rest stop. But you find shelter (or make your own), and you watch to make sure it’s relatively quiet before dropping trou. I would rather get a tick on my bum in the bushes than be seen for even a few seconds by a stranger.

  • Wink-n-Smile July 18, 2011, 9:52 am

    Taking the video as proof – “See, officer, it really happened, and you can make out her face in this shot right here. She should be arrested for public indecency,” or “Hey, Joe, you’ll never believe what your Aunt Marge did. Time for Happy Acres!” – is one thing. That’s not bad, because you’re planning to do the right thing with it, and make the world a better place.

    If you happened to be filming, and the woman was right there, and started doing her thing, after you already started filming, and you were too shocked to stop or change views, that’s another thing. She intruded on you, and you were too shocked to stop it.

    Posting it, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter.

    This is like the future mother-in-law email to the future daughter-in-law. If she desperately needed to vent to her friends about the horrible email she got, she should have printed it out and showed them, face to face, without giving them a copy, or else let them read over her shoulder, while she accessed it on her computer. This proves that she’s not making things up when she complains about FMIL, and that the woman really is as bad as she said. In fact, the only one to whom she really should have shown it was her fiance. He needed to know. No one else did.

    Once she emailed it, she joined FMIL in eHell. This is the same thing. Once that vid-taker posted the vid, he joined the peeing woman in eHell.

  • Xtina July 18, 2011, 10:10 am

    Definitely the peeing woman gets a seat closer to the fire in eHell. What she did is simply disgusting and there is no excuse for what was obviously no manners and pure laziness to leave her seat and go to the bathroom. I feel really sorry for the people around her who not only were treated to a view they probably didn’t want, but who possibly got splattered and/or had to step in or smell the mess.

    The man who recorded her and posted it on YouTube also deserves a seat in eHell, too, but I place less blame on him for reacting like any immature person probably would have, and in a way, he may have done the world a service by hopefully embarrassing the peeing woman by making her indiscretion public (hopefully she was so embarrassed that she would never dream of doing such a thing again). I hope she learned a lesson, and may ALL of us take this as a reminder that in this day and age of small, powerful recording devices, we need to be on our very best behavior everywhere!

  • purple frog July 18, 2011, 10:11 am

    I just want to see what happens in court on the 28th. No doubt her humiliation will be completed by having her name made public.

  • Xtina July 18, 2011, 10:12 am

    whoops–check that, the recording man wasn’t making the woman’s actions public–she had already done that herself! I mean that he made it MORE public; maybe that’s a better way to word it. haha!

  • Rattus July 18, 2011, 10:17 am

    The urinating woman is, of course, utterly revolting. But while I do find those chroniclers of bad behaviour to be generally revolting themselves, part of me hopes that the continued YouTubing of this sort of activity will cause the public at large of stop and consider whether they are heading for world-wide finger pointing before they choose to bow in abeisance to their id.

  • AS July 18, 2011, 10:20 am

    The leaking-woman definitely belongs to e-hell.

    Like many other posters, I am torn about my opinion of the photographer too. If her private parts were not caputered, I think the video serves as a reminder for others who’d want to act so gross in public. It might not be the most mature behaviour on part of the photographer, but a cynical part of me wants to say that at least people like her who watched the video would know that there are people in the stadium who are watching them urinate. BTW, the photographer might have taken the video to show the authorities (I might have done that, especially if the experience of watching the game that I paid for was spoilt by someone’s pee near my feet or seat).

  • Typo Tat July 18, 2011, 10:29 am

    I don’t think the filmer is in the wrong at all. Nasty people like this woman deserve every bit of punishment that comes their way! Maybe next time that nasty woman will think twice before pulling crazy shit.

  • Louise July 18, 2011, 10:30 am

    What is the title of the YouTube video, and has the poster replied to any comments on it? I think that will tell us a lot about his or her motivations for putting it on YouTube. If it somehow accidentally wound up on there — which I doubt — then that’s one thing; but if it’s posted in a “ZOMG!!” way, that’s really bad.

    I don’t understand why you’d pee in full view of people, I don’t understand why you’d film it and I don’t understand why you’d watch it.

  • Mike Johnson July 18, 2011, 10:40 am

    I actually disagree with Dear, I feel that people like this deserve public humiliation. How else will they ever learn to not do it? The next time it will be at a childrens venue where she does it and it is obvious that regular social upbringing hasn’t changed her behavior so maybe public humiliation will.

  • Riri July 18, 2011, 11:06 am

    I absolve the videographer of all guilt. Most places have laws against public urination, no? So the video is added evidence to ensure that proper actions are taken against the very disgusting law-breaker. In fact, in incidents like this, I would encourage witnesses to document the process of the crime! Maybe it wasn’t the videographer’s intention to document the crime and they only sought to gain attention by capturing the event, but videos like this are still helpful evidence to law enforcement. Like gamma dishes said, this was not an accident, and there were plenty of facilities for her to do her business. Only the woman deserves Ehell; the videographer is just a helpful (although a little bit nosy) bystander.

  • Daniela July 18, 2011, 11:33 am

    The part that grosses me out the most is that this is a seat that someone else will eventually be sitting in. I know that in the outdoors lots of gross stuff probably happened to the seats already (not like you can control where the birds go) but just the though of maybe getting this seat the next time around squicks me out.

  • Ista July 18, 2011, 11:51 am

    I condemn the woman doing the deed…perhaps the videographer was somewhat rude, but when you make a choice to do something like this in a public area with hundreds or thousands of people, you just signed up for hundreds or thousands to see your horrid behavior. Now, if it had been an up-skirt video, or she had obviously had an accident and was mortally embarrassed, I’d cast the camera-man to the pits. But she did the deed on purpose, in full view of everyone.

    Heck, forget rude, this is just gross! I hope the stadium caretakers disinfect the chairs.

  • kristin July 18, 2011, 11:57 am

    This is just completely unbelievable. I can’t even imagine who would do such a thing, in front of so many people. No doubt there were children at this game, too. It’s completely disgusting.

    I wish whoever the impromptu videographer to this performance was, or someone sitting nearby, would have called her out on this behavior. Even a “Oh my goodness, is that woman peeing?!” loud enough for her to hear. I feel like that would’ve been a more productive type of public shaming, since the witnesses would have been the ones around them – and they were victim to having to see, smell, and possibly step in the urine puddle anyway.

    I really just can’t fathom this at all. Then again, I can’t even “go” in a public restroom if I hear people talking around me, lol. Going in public at a crowded sports event is unthinkable!

  • --Lia July 18, 2011, 12:18 pm

    Public urination tends to be a crime. It is unsanitary and can spread disease. At the very least, it creates a horrible mess for someone to clean up. Videotaping someone committing a crime is not usually a crime itself. I give the worst of the blame to the original offender.

  • david July 18, 2011, 12:35 pm

    Both the woman and the videographer were rude and disgusting, but the woman who urinated was much worse on the scale of offense.

    Next time you are in a public stadium take a look around you at how big it is. That big area is cleaned by people, usually making about minimum wage. Imagine an 8 to 10 hour shift of dealing with nothing but the crap left behind by spectators and how much fun cleaning up after this woman had to have been for everyone involved. Blech.

  • gellchom July 18, 2011, 12:48 pm

    You know, when someone does something this far over the line, it starts to seem to me more like mental illness than simple rudeness or selfishness. Of course it’s gross, it’s not okay, it’s bad, it’s still wrong. But I find myself actually less, not more, inclined to get on my moral/etiquette high horse when behavior is SO bad that it makes me wonder if this person has any capability of impulse control. By way of analogy, it’s never okay to spout a stream of racist invective, to cut in line, or to talk out loud during a play or concert. But my judgment about the offender is affected if I know that the person doing it has severe Tourette’s Syndrome, Downs, or Alzheimer’s. And the solutions are certainly different for illness than for selfishness. I didn’t look at the video, so I can’t tell whether there are any clues about this woman. But the woman in Margo’s story sure seems to have had something really wrong with her.

    Something about this all seems a little fishy to me, anyway. How did the videographer just happen to be filming a fan instead of the action? It could happen. But then, it can also be a set-up by one or both of them. That happens, too. Some people want attention so badly that even this kind will do.

  • Jillybean July 18, 2011, 12:53 pm

    I haven’t seen the video. Was there no one around her? How does one do that without a single person shouting out, “What the hell are you doing?!”

  • Hal July 18, 2011, 1:04 pm

    Similar thing. My wife and I lived in an apartment on the 24th floor of a building on Russian Hill in San Francisco for several years. We had very large WWII binoculars in the corner window view which included the GG Bridge, the bay and around to downtown SF. Often our guests would scan the literally hundreds of apartment windows at night looking for the obvious. When they found it they laughed and insisted all look. Then they often as not criticized the people for not pulling the draperies and for being provocative or obscene. I finally said that I thought two people enjoying one another’s company trumped a Peeping Tom. True, we spent more evenings alone after that but I am still glad I said it and still think I am right. I realize the peeing lady was way wrong but I think taking her picture was worse. Who wants to see that? Talk about it, sure. But see it in a video or photograph? No.

  • LaurenP July 18, 2011, 1:13 pm

    I suddenly feel the urge to start packing waterproof cushions to put on my seat… eww.

    Didn’t her parents teach her one of the fundamental rules of life: “go beforehand”? Then go at half-time or end of match?

  • --Lia July 18, 2011, 1:28 pm

    Oh, and about men discreetly taking a leak in the woods being not as vulgar and disgusting as doing it in public? Not necessarily. It depends on groundwater, run-off, rain, the local ecosystem, who’s cleaning, etc. There’s a reason modern cities have modern sewer systems. This is one of those things where people think there no harm in one person breaking a law. Animals urinate in the woods, they argue. But there are not as many animals as people, and the animals tend not to be as large as people. If enough people go off to urinate privately in the woods, a huge public sanitation problem follows. I try to look at this as an etiquette problem, and while I see that there’s an etiquette element to it, I keep coming up with this being one for local law enforcement. The woman didn’t just disgust a lot of people, she broke laws and destroyed property. Maybe the way to get through to her would be to find out which team she was rooting for and get the players to say something decrying what she did.

  • LovleAnjel July 18, 2011, 1:29 pm

    Louise, you want to see for yourself ? 😉 The video was taken down at some point, but people are re-posting it…it’ll float around YouTube Limbo for awhile, but I doubt you’ll be able to find it in the same place or with the same comments from day to day.

  • Serenity S. July 18, 2011, 1:58 pm

    I agree it is disgusting and rude to pee in public for both women and men. I also am worried that there could have been children at the game that she exposed herself to. I think that she should be prosecuted for indecent exposure. I do think that it was in poor taste for the person who video-taped her to post the video, but I am not sure it was rude. The woman didn’t seem to have a problem exposing herself in front of hundreds of other fans, and most people know there are cameras installed at public places for security purposes.

  • Insomniac July 18, 2011, 2:07 pm

    Definitely, the nasty pee-er is banished to e-hell.

    In this day and age, you’d have to have been living under a rock for the past 10 years not to realize that everything you do in public has the potential to be video-ed or photographed for posterity. That means being on your best behavior no matter who might be looking, because EVERYONE is potentially looking.

    Honestly, is there anything that sports fans consider too off-the-wall to do nowadays?

  • Edhla July 18, 2011, 2:43 pm

    I have seen the offending video. To answer some questions:

    Everyone except the videographer ignores her shocking behaviour. She very clearly knew what she was doing and (gag) when the seat flips up, I can’t see how that wouldn’t have splashed onto the people behind. She ambles up to her friend, who has likewise not taken her eyes off the game. This woman was calm, quiet and otherwise did not appear to be mentally ill or sick. She did, however, have a good seat, and I imagine she was simply too lazy to walk a gazillion miles to the toilets and then have to wait in line (and therefore perhaps miss part of the game. The horror!)

    My own feeling is how the law defines it- anything done in public, on purpose, by a sane person, is fair game. If you pee on a seat, those around you have the right to photograph/film it. I think it’s only a pity her face isn’t shown, for extra shame value. Such a person is truly revolting!

  • Edhla July 18, 2011, 2:49 pm

    Oh, I forgot: no, it doesn’t show her private parts. Not pornographic or pornographic at all in my opinion.

  • --E July 18, 2011, 2:56 pm

    I give the woman a one-way ticket to Ehell, but nothing to the videographer. He (or she–do we know the gender of this person?) didn’t sneak up on someone who assumed she had privacy.

    If you misbehave in public, you take the risk of it being recorded. This woman had no problem with the dozens–possibly hundreds–of people in her immediate vicinity witnessing her actions (and naked bum). What are a few million more strangers on the internet?

    If the video is by a fellow spectator who happened to have a camera with them at the venue, then I don’t consider it terribly rude. But if it were a security-camera tape, released to the public by a stadium employee, I would consider it very rude. Hmmm.

  • LovleAnjel July 18, 2011, 3:02 pm

    The video starts when she’s already pants-down on the seat. It’s a cameraphone video, so the videographer just whipped out their phone when they saw what was going on. The woman’s seat is front-row, the only thing in front of her is the low concrete wall at the edge of the balcony she’s on. The seats around them were fairly empty, so it’s possible she was discrete about pulling her pants down and most of the other attendees thought she was simply sitting.

  • AS July 18, 2011, 3:06 pm

    @Hal – it is one thing to peep through a binoculars into other people’s houses, and another thing to take a picture of / look at someone who is urinating in public. The people your guests saw were in their own apartments , and probably forgot to pull the drapes (maybe because they are on higher floors and don’t expect peeping Toms looking with a binoculars) wherheas this woman was in a crowded stadium. That makes a lot of difference.

    Re Edhla’s comment: How the law defines it- anything done in public, on purpose, by a sane person, is fair game. If you pee on a seat, those around you have the right to photograph/film it.I think it’s only a pity her face isn’t shown, for extra shame value. Such a person is truly revolting!

    Agreed. Unfortunately, just because something is legal to be done, doesn’t mean it should be done.

    Goodness! The woman and the video just seem to illustrate that there’s no such thing as decency anymore. (Can I please go back to the home world now?!)

    If she had not done it, the video would not have been made. Yuck on her. Yuck.

    The videographer’s only real victim was the woman whose actions were broadcast on the internet. Unless it was posted with a highly misleading description, viewers knew exactly what they would be watching and apparently wanted to see something so disgusting. And clearly the woman didn’t care much who saw her urinating as she did so in a very public way, so I can’t feel very sorry for her, either. However, the people around the woman and those who cleaned up the stadium afterwards had no choice but to be inflicted with this display of grossness. While the videographer was creepy to record it, she was much more wrong to do it in the first place.

    I’m a mad blues supporter and I love SOO (State Of Origin). This really upsets me. I’ve been to so many games, and watched so many on TV, and I never fathomed something like this could occur. If you love something so much, why put it in jeopardy? I hope she gets banned from all future games. If everyone did crazy sh!t like that, the game would be cancelled, and thousands of people would be upset. Why do so many people think only of themselves? I bet if she is/gets married she’ll be one selfish bridezilla who only cares about herself.

    Hahaha, part of me is curious, but the other part doesn’t want to see people peeing! 😀

    This reminds me of the email situation a few days ago. However, unlike the nasty mother-in-law, this woman had NO expectation of privacy. She was already in full view of several people…is that any less humiliating than being in view of thousands?

    The original video was removed by youtube. However, there are a few other “copies” of it on Youtube. State of Origin wee will bring up the video. The woman had no shame. To urinate in public, in front (although they could only see her behind) of so many spectators in a stadium, really shows how little self-respect she has and how little respect she has for other people. It was crass and disgusting. The guy filming was laughing & carrying on and I wonder why he didn’t yell out to her to stop? Thanks to the video though, police were able to track down the seat number and the offender and she’s been charged and will be attending court (to get a fine).
