Hillmomba Is Not A Dog Toilet

What, exactly, is wrong with people?

I know I've asked that before. And I'm pretty sure blog buddy Kathy wonders, on a daily basis. Seems like people these days just go and do as they darn well please! That they're so special, the world shall bend rules for them!

Today I was sitting in T-Hoe at the gas station chicken store. I'd just come out with my 44 oz Diet Coke, and was strapping on the seatbelt, looking across the ditch-moat at Farmer H's pharmacy, CeilingReds. A truck pulling a camper drove onto the lot. It had been at the gas station chicken store, but didn't stop. Just drove through the corner lot and down the back street and over to CeilingReds.

The truck pulled along the parking-space-stoppers, lengthwise. Took up at least 10 spaces, counting the truck and camper. AND another truck followed them, pulling a homemade trailer carrying a 4-wheeler, and parked in front of CeilingReds, taking up another five or six spaces. People! Ceilingreds is a small pharmacy in Hillmomba. It only has about 25 parking spaces, max! These folks had just taken up 60 percent of CeilingReds' parking!

I do not think The Parkers were there to fill a prescription. They all clambered out of the pickup. A man, woman, two teenage girls. Each girl had a dog on a leash. They proceeded to walk those dogs along the shrubs in the gravel landscaping strip that divides Ceilingreds' lot from the street, where a line of cars always sits waiting on the stoplight. I guess The Parkers consider CeilingReds to be a dog toilet.

I know I've complained before about people letting their dogs poop out in front of the Dairy Queen, located cattycorner to the gas station chicken store.

HILLMOMBA IS NOT A DOG TOILET!

There's a state park less than 10 miles north, and another one less than 10 miles south. What, exactly, is wrong with people?

HM--I certainly hope that people pick up their dog's poop? Or is that too much to ask for?

Oh, sorry. I forgot. People like that are the exception to every rule. They are king and queen of the universe. All the laws and guidelines apply to everyone except them.

They get to do whatever they darned well please.

Sioux,
I'm not the Poop Police, so I don't know. I don't watch them that long. As far as I know, the gravel in the landscaped strip is petrified dog turds. I sure didn't see that they had any baggies in their hands as they were walking their dogs.

Pretty sure these kings and queens and princesses didn't take care of business.

fishducky,
Come to Hillmomba! We WELCOME YOU!

No, Sioux, they did not pick the poop up! People do that all the time. I always show people the location of my dog park on map and tell them they are welcome to use it as long as they pick the poop up. They all say that they would never leave the poop on the ground ..... I would say about 50% of them are liars! So rude to leave your poop for someone else to clean up.

Kathy,
I think the pet people in Sioux's neck of Not-Hillmomba are more politically correct in their poop-scoopage.
