A postal worker in Oregon was suspended after he was caught on camera taking a bathroom break in a yard.
Portland resident Don Derfler said he was waiting for his child's babysitter at his home last week when he noticed his pith-helmeted postman snooping around behind his neighbor's trash cans, KATU television reported.
When the mailman dropped his pants, Derfler picked up his camera.
In the pics, the unidentified mailman can be seen squatting in some bushes behind a house and then pulling his pants up and hurrying away.
"We trust people like the postal service and meter readers and people of that nature," Derfler told the station. "To come on to our property and to defecate - it's just wrong."
Derfler even took pics of the mailman's special delivery and sent them to the post office.
Postal officials said they had suspended the mail carrier without pay while it reviewed the incident.
"Why an individual like this would ever make a decision to do something that is just beyond common sense and reason, I don't have an explanation for this individual," postal service spokesman Ron Anderson told KATU.www.nydailynews.comstory with video, I think
