Is it ok to put a bag of dog poop in your neighbor’s garbage? Here’s what you had to say.
Last night, I spotted an older gentlemen walking his dog by my house. He stopped in front of my driveway, looked around for a moment, then took his bag of dog poop and placed it in my garbage (it was trash day). Fair or foul?
I asked this question on Twitter and the responses were mixed. Some of you were ok with it, having sympathy with a dog owner who has to walk around with a bag of feces. Others called the guy a dick, because garbage on the side of the road is a constitutional right.
Here’s a just sampling of what you guys had to say.
@WorldofIsaac Dick move by that guy, but It's your own fault for putting the garbage out the night before trash pickup.

@WorldofIsaac in a bag? Is in bounds! At least he's picking it up.

@WorldofIsaac absolutely; carry your dogsh*t home & deposit in your own garbage.

Not wanting to get caught brown handed, I am very discreet and gone in a flash when I do drop in someone else's bin @WorldofIsaac

@WorldofIsaac If it's in a turd bag then it's ok.If he just put turds in your trash follow him and poop in his trash

@WorldofIsaac I see no issue. Garbage cans at the curb already, no biggie.

@WorldofIsaac I do that all the time. Bagged up only. I feel kinda bad but carrying a bag of feces feels worse

@WorldofIsaac absolutely, irrefutably out of bounds. Total manlaw AND HOA violation there.

@WorldofIsaac no way. How does that affect you?

@WorldofIsaac that's a bunch of crap *rimshot*

@WorldofIsaac If it's bagged properly & your trash is at the curb, no foul on the play. Dude just doesn't want to carry poop any further.

@WorldofIsaac totally out of bounds

As for me, nah, I don’t care. I kinda feel like he was taking advantage of a young homeowner (I’ve only been there a year, most of the people in my sub are old). But whatever, I’m not going to make a big “stink” about it.
