I had the weirdest experience today. When Ron and I took our daily walk, we stopped to talk to a neighbor, we'll call her Karen, who was already talking to a fellow walker, we'll call him Oscar (well, actually those are their names.) She was explaining that she was tired of dogs pooping on her lawn - which in our neighborhood consists of stones, not grass. So to make a point, she pushed all the poop onto the sidewalk. I was the only one of the four who thought this was crazy. She seems to think (and the guys agreed) that this would make the point to the dog walkers that they need to pick up after their dogs. I disagreed.
1 - This simply inconveniences the people who walk (without dogs.)
2 - Anyone inconsiderate enough not to pick up after their dogs will not change their ways because of this.
2 - After all the people walk through it, what does the sidewalk look like?
3 - This is an over-55 community. There are people who courageously walk with canes and walkers.
4 - If somebody slips on her sidewalk, they could probably sue. (Somebody tripped on a crack in my sidewalk years ago and they sued.)
I could go on and on. I only got through point number one because nobody would listen to me, so I'm appealing to my blogger friends. What do you think? I'm wondering if Ron and Oscar just agreed with her because she's young (for this neighborhood) and cute. Or am I wrong?
