revenge is a dish best served cold

the window in my bedroom is very big, and affords me a pleasant view of "the preserve" (which is advertisement-speak for "the swamp"). each morning i wake up looking at a wall of green that i find very invigorating. this particular vista also lends me the ability to watch all my neighbors, in varying states of dress (or undress), take their dogs out to poop. almost without fail i observe them every morning as they studiously ignore their canines' depositing, then look both ways to make sure no one saw what just happened, and idle away leaving the pile behind. needless to say i find it irritating that my backyard is the complex's poop-patch.

so perhaps this explains why, with such perverse glee, i watched this morning as three different people walked into the same banana spider web whilst walking their dogs. they sauntered along, smug in the knowledge that yet again they would get away with leaving a pile of turds behind, only to flee with limbs flailing in terror.

permit me a cruel chuckle: ha ha!

You should take pictures of them as they're walking away from the pile, then submit them to the office!

It's too bad your neighbors are serving their dishes warm.

That tactic may also be of benefit, given their practices...

I think you should scoop up the offending pile, put it in a lunch bag, deposit it on their porch, light it on fire and ring the doorbell (don't forget to go hide).

When they stamp out the fire...
