Many things stick in my craw.
It’s probably part of the ageing process.
I have learned to zip the lip over most things though because it’s seen as irritating to comment on doors not being held open, dawdling shoppers with their bums stuck out as they lean on the trolley, and drivers who hit the indicator AS they turn a corner (I mean, what’s the point? It’s called an “indicator” for a reason, it’s not just to make your car look pretty as you scare the bejeezus out of pedestrians)
However, I do feel that the effect of the behaviour can warrant comment if it’s likely to damage people.
Dog fouling comes high on my list.
In England local town councils can fine you at least £50 if you are seen to allow your dog to dump without picking it up and disposing of it properly.
This morning a dog which is, one assumes, the size of a cart horse fed on buckets of fudge, relieved itself a few doors down from my front door. Being only 50 feet from the local primary school, this deposit had already been trodden through several times.
A neighbour phoned the council who gave us a 5 day guesstimate of it being cleaned up.
Despairing of this ever happening I set to with a brush and bucket of water. (And then sent them a sarcastic email)
We know who it is. Many of us have challenged this feckless twit but he walks the dog without a lead and waits at the end of the street so can deny any knowledge of the pet’s poop.
It’s not the actual act that grinds me. It’s the inconsiderate nature. It’s the lack of caring and forethought about the implications of what he does. Dog poop can cause eye disease and blindness, gastric upsets…..
He just doesn’t care.
Hopefully Mother Karma will soon be giving him a heft kick up his inconsiderate arse.
