observations on human behaviour

I was working on street cleaning (collecting junk that people leave in public areas)The team isn't called a street cleaning team or a refuge team no, it is the Chapeltown Pride team, many of the areas have their own 'pride' team and it's nice to see that people are proud of their area.

There is, however, one problem with this territorial display as observed today. At almost every halt my tow co-workers felt the irresistible urge to mark out their territory in that most ancient of ways. Any tom cats will be left in no doubt about who is the alpha male around there!

I do that all the time. I'll be at the mall, grocery store, a restaurant and I'll get the overwhelming desire to mark out the area as MINE. I cop a squat, do the deed, and I'm outta there. At least then people know THE BREAD AISLE IS MINE ALLLLL MIIINE!
