I Don't Pick Up My Dog's Poop

Mostly, I'm a responsible citizen. I pay my parking tickets, my taxes, and my library fines. But for some reason, I can't bring myself to pick up my dog's poop. It just doesn't seem like a very big deal to me; a few turds in the grass by the side of the road doesn't hurt anyone, now does it? If it's right smack in the middle of the sidewalk, well, yes, that's a different story, but even then... I sometimes don't have a bag with me. I know what you're saying to yourself. You're saying, "If everyone thought like you, we'd have giant mountains of dogshit on every corner!" True, but everyone doesn't think like me. Most people do
pick up their dog's shit, and for that reason, my dog's shit is of little matter. So if you've stepped on some dogshit and you live in Northwest, there's a likely chance it came from my dog. And I'm sorry... but not that sorry.--Anonymous
