Problem Solvers…ish #4 — Don’t put up with poop from your neighbors!
Neighbor Relations: A messy minefield after a scooper war…
Your neighbors’ dog is a poop factory. Your neighbors don’t care.
How do ask your neighbors to clean up after their dog without stepping in it? We mean an inter-apartment landmine of hostility, of course. The issue seems pretty cut and dried to you (or maybe not so dried…yeesh!)—not your dog, not your poop. Why should you have to put up with it the nasty sight and smell, right? Shit-fer-brains neighbors might be surprisingly confused about their civic responsibility as far as Fifi’s fecal habits go.
Seth and Lex plumb the depths of weeks of poop and neighborly patience and offer some solutions about how to deal with inescapable, irresponsible pet owners. The key thing is to avoid violence. Or wait…was an act of violence the solution? I don’t remember. But when you’ve had to clean the crap out of the treads of your high tops with a thin stick for the third time, there’s only one place to turn—The Problem Solvers…ish! They’ll help restore that sense of peace and harmony, poop-free!
