Petty revenge is the best. And it doesn’t get much more petty than building a 250-foot long wall made of poop on your property line because of a dispute with your neighbor.
Which is exactly what happened when two neighbors in Southeast Michigan got into it arguing over their property line.
Wayne Lambarth says his farmer neighbor built the poop wall next to his property in Lodi Township and now the tenants who live in the house he owns on the property are having to deal with the smell of manure all day, every day.
“Normally they spread it on the field but they decided to make a fence out of it,” Lambarth told Fox 2 Detroit.
“It’s like you can’t leave the window open. The whole upstairs will smell like it,” said Coyne Gatto, one of the tenants.
“It’s just a sh-t pile over there,” said Jaidyn Schwarzel, another tenant in the home.
Lambarth’s grandfather reportedly developed the property 100 years ago, but last year there was a disagreement about how the land had since been divided.
The neighbor who built the poop wall told Fox 2 Detroit, , “It’s not a poop wall. It’s a compost fence.”
When he was informed that his neighbors did not like the poop wall, the neighbor “responded something inaudible about not liking the price of milk before he got back to work on his farm.”
Local officials have also weighed in and declared that there is nothing they can do about the poop wall because the neighbor technically built it on his property and isn’t breaking any laws.
So, at least for now, Lambarth and his tenants are just going to put up with their neighbor’s sh-t. Literally.
