Port-o-potties are a necessary — if not particularly lovely — part of our lives.
We see (and use) them at construction sites. There are a few at Wakeman Fields. Every year for the fireworks, dozens are trucked in to Compo Beach.
But we seldom see a portable toilet just sitting, all by its lonesome, by the side of a regular road.
Yet that’s where this guy has been, for weeks — perhaps months.
A curious (nosy?) Westporter has seen it for a long time now. It’s on Nyala Farms Road — the little cut-through that connects Greens Farms Road with the Sherwood Island Connector, just north of the Bridgewater office complex.
That may give one clue to why it (the port-o-potty, not the hedge fund) is there.
“It’s on the stretch where limos sit — often with engines idling — in hot and cold weather,” says the alert “06880” reader who stopped by the john the other day.
To take a picture, mind you.
Not to use the facility.
