Before we get to the big issues this morning, let’s pause for a moment and marvel at this breakfast:
Oh yeaaaah. That’s a triple stack Grilled Banana Sandwich. A triple stack because I was at the end of my loaf of bread and two pieces were just too tiny for breakfast.
So, so good. I really do think GBS are my favorite breakfast of all time. But, onto more pressing matters…
A Very ‘Urgent’ Debate
The Husband and I have been debating a certain smelly topic for years, and I’m like YOU to be the tiebreaker.
This debate relates to dog poop. Yes, dog poop.
Our little dogs create a lot of poop. In fact, you could set your watch by Maggie’s poops (8 AM, 5 PM, 9 PM). And since we don’t have a yard, we walk our dogs down public streets, which means that we pick up their poops with plastic bags.
Anyway – I have this thing about carrying around poop bags. I hate it. I don’t mind picking it up, but I want the bag out of my hand as quickly as possible.
Enter: other people’s trash cans.
Here’s the debate: If you’re walking your dog on a public street and come across a neighbor’s trash can that has been set out on the curb for trash day, is it OK to put your dog’s poop inside another person’s trash can? ALSO – does your answer change depending on whether the trash has already been picked up? (I only do it if the trash hasn’t been picked up yet.)
The Husband says it is NEVER acceptable to put doggie poop in someone else’s trash, and I say, “Who cares?! It’s a trash can and the poop is in a sealed plastic bag.”
Please settle this marital debate! What should we do with our doggie do-do?
ha, great topic! I’d say it’s ok to put it in someone else’s trash can if the trash is coming later that morning. Otherwise no…wouldn’t it make the trash can smell?? Of course I say that, but seriously, I probably wouldn’t put it in anyone’s trash can ever…I’d be too afraid of someone getting upset with me.
