- Pet owners that live in my complex actually picking up after their dogs. I cannot tell you how many times I have caught folks from as far as 3 buildings away taking their dogs to shit over on my "backyard" so to speak, then leave it steaming on the ground as they clip clop back to their condo. WTF?!? That is so jacked up I haven't even the faculties to give it a name, but "The Doggie Doo & Disappear" & "Shit and Run" have been jingling around in my mind for a while. It's gross. It smells disgusting. Have some class and pick up after your pet.
- And on the subject of picking up.... have some class when you throw out your trash as well! We have some nice condo units here. Some are owned and some are rented and the place is nice and quiet, so basically if you can't be bothered to get your trash actually IN THE DUMPSTER you're just an asshole. A lazy asshole. And what's even lazier? There are parents who are having their 4 to 7 year old kids do it for them, except the kids can't get it in the dumpster, so they leave it out on the ground where animals tear into it and it gets everywhere. What fresh Hell is that? On a good note, the complex has started a thing where if there's garbage left out, and there's a piece of mail showing the address it came from, those folks are getting charged $50 per infraction. Hit 'em where it hurts, I say!
- Respect Thy Neighbor. It isn't hard. It doesn't even require a lot of thought. It's built on the simple premise that, if you're going to bug your neighbor, DON'T DO IT! Want to blare your music at ear splitting levels? Don't do it. You're vibrating the walls & floors and maybe your fellow residents. Want to sit outside your apartment and honk 15,000 times at your room mate/signifigant other who is taking too long to meet you in the car? DON'T DO IT!! I become homicidal with stabby rage after 14,999 and want to smash your car with a bowling ball. It's just not worth upping your deductible. Want to clean your house nekkid? DON'T DO IT!! (This is for the ugly woman in the Condo's across from our complex drive way. Shudder!)
Not a whole lot, just a few, small things that would make the world a better place for me, and really, everyone. Can we call 2012 the year of "Don't Be A Douche Bag"?
