Did you think this post was about our NVR issues? With a title like that you would think major drama is involved. Never fear, this post isn't about NVR (although I am still waiting on news about our appraisal).
Nope, this is about our future neighbors. I had to swing by our new house yesterday to allow a measuring guy from Lowe's in. He measured all of our windows for our blinds! WOOHOO!
As I walked towards the house, I saw the unthinkable! One of our neighbors had ALREADY let their dog do their business right by the stoop and didn't bother to pick it up! WHAT THE SMURF?!
I know since our house is technically a condo that we don't own the outside, BUT STILL! Who would do such a thing?! Mike and I are very diligent in making sure we pick up after Daisy. I was hoping that moving to a place where people owned their homes they would respect the area more. Clearly I was wrong.
The apartment Mike and I live in now is on the first floor and is right next to a path where people walk their dogs all the time. These people are AWFUL about cleaning up after their pooches. It was so bad over the summer, that we couldn't even open up our windows to enjoy the warm weather! I will be pretty upset if the same thing happens in our new neighborhood.
I would like to see another pet waste station installed in the open area across the street from us in hopes that these people will start using it. Not sure what I have to do to get that done though. I mean really what else can you do? I guess we could install a little video camera and catch people in the act and turn them into the police, but what the heck are they going to do about it?! I fear that if we put a polite sign up, that someone might get a little sassy and purposely let their pup do their business near the sign. Am I thinking too much into this?
So obviously this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine, otherwise I wouldn't be blogging about it. What would you do?
