Private property and privacy can only go so far. For instance, while we all deserve to not have police called on us during a family emergency, sometimes it is very hard to perceive just how truthful someone is being.
Ben Patterson learned this the hard way when he was tasked with taking care of the kids. After picking them up from his wife and preparing to take them on the car ride home, little Declan gave him a nasty surprise: he projectile vomited.
Clearly not ready to handle the stench, Ben began texting his wife for help.
In case it wasn’t clear what this all had to do with property rights, we’re getting there. After not being able to handle the smell or sight of his son’s excrement, Ben began vomiting on the side of the road. This in and of itself was already a pretty terrible situation, but matters only got worse when the woman who owned the property came out to see what was going on.
Fortunately, to our knowledge, Mr. Patterson wasn’t charged with anything, including for puking on the woman’s yard.
