Mr. Ashley is over there negotiating with the poop-throwing terrorists.
I wrote my landlord an email today asking if the back neighbors seemed like the type to throw bags of crap into someone's yard and she responded that as a matter of fact, the back neighbors called her today to tell her our dog was pooping in her yard and barking so much her neighbor was complaining too.
First off--why not call the landlord the first time you find poop? If for some reason a note in the mailbox or knock on the door was beyond your abilities? This isn't the proper way to let someone know there's a problem.
Second--her fat Cocker Spaniel barks at our dogs. I always have to rush out there when she lets her dog out because I can hear it barking and I know mine will start up soon. Mine do bark in retaliation, and Murphy has barked at her before. But the point is, her dog is barking too. If her neighbor is complaining, her dog is part of the problem. Sorry there didn't used to be dogs here and now there are dogs here, the consequence of that is that when they see each other once every few days, they may attempt communication.
Okay, now Mr. Ashley is back and says that the lady seemed extremely nice and that she says she didn't throw the poop in our yard but she knows who did because it happened to her seven years ago when she first moved here, and she'll tell them to knock it off. She also can't reveal who it is so that Mr. Ashley can speak to them personally.
Hmmm...so I find a poop bomb the same day you call my landlord to say that you suspect my dog has pooped in your yard, and you are unrelated to the mysterious neighborhood poop bomb terrorist but do have the ability to send him a message from us? Yeah. Okay.
Mr. Ashley says things seem resolved, but I'll still be plotting subtle methods of revenge. Nothing soon, but one day.
