Trivial things that make you surly

Personally, I don’t toss dog poop bags into strangers’ trash bins, but this is an interesting social norm. I’ve had this discussion with several of my friends. Is it really taboo to toss a dog poop bag, or a stray plastic bottle, or anything else, into a neighbor’s curbside trash bin?  I say yes on the dog poop bags, but my 80+ yo parents have no problem with it in their neighborhood. 
I run almost every day, and I frequently pick up the stray plastic bottle or construction nail that I find on the street. If I find an open bin before I get home, you’d better believe I’m putting the stray trash in there rather than continuing to carry it. I think that’s fine, but have not put dog poop bags in because no one wants extra stink in their bin, especially when it’ll be another week before it gets picked up. 

I find regular trash annoying, but not worthy of scorn, especially if it was stray trash due to the garbage men or something.  Poop, however, that is not ok.  Ever.  Carry that shit to an actual dog poo can or take it home and throw it in your own trash.

I really only mind if the trash has already been picked up and it's warm outside (April-October).  Because then I gotta roll my bin to my backyard where your dog's shit will stink for 6 days until the next pickup.  But some folks on their early morning dog walks will do it and my bin gets picked up an hour later, I'm cool with it.

If I see you throw away your dog poop in my trash can I will follow you home to see where you live.  The next trash day, shortly after your trash is picked up, you will find a bag of my poop in your trash can

And sometimes dog poop bags don't get emptied by the collection process, which means that they stick to the bottom of the can to keep progressively stinking until the innocent owner has to make the effort to dislodge it with a stick or a hose or something. 

I got so fed up with it that I bought a giant sticker from Amazon telling people not to dump their dog's shit in my can. I wanted to make a more threatening one myself (i.e., "if I discover who is putting dog shit in my can, I will then force you to eat it at gunpoint, so fuck off" or similar), but I compromised on a civilized and professional looking one in order to keep the peace with Mrs. Doom. 

Throw away whatever else you need to in my garbage can, but I draw the line at feces.

You want to tell dog owners you're gonna hold them at gunpoint?  Holy shit, I thought my idea was mean.

That's commitment or a reason to be committed ?

Very much this.  It leads me to another thing that makes me surly, which is when the garbage men just grab the sack out of the bin and don't actually turn it upside down to empty it.  There's even a robot arm to do it for them.

I've caught my share of Karen speed walkers / loud cell phone talkers pull apart the bag of lawn clippings left at my driveway by my lawn guy so Karen could stuff her dog's crap in it or, being even lazier, just leave the poop bag on top of the lawn clippings bag.  The lack of respect, outright laziness and disdane for others drives me insane.  I call them out and tell them "uh uh UHH!!!, take your dog's crap to your house. Don't be lazy and inconsiderate."

I've got no problem confronting dipshits, so the shitty looks and back talk I get are awesome and laughable. The dizzy broads want to argue with me about how its no big deal. Oh, OK.  If it's not a big deal then tote your dog's crap back to your joint and throw it away there. 

It usually ends when I ask them if I can come over and take a shit and not flush it in their downstairs guest bathroom where their husband is forbidden to take a dump.

So what does your sticker actually say, Doom? Readers want to know. 

They were sold in packages of two - here's the spare.

Not sure if you'd consider this trivial but ADT just sent a solicitor to my door during a pandemic. The only reason I opened the door is because through the peephole it looked like my neighbor's wife but no, trying to sell me upgrades, wanting me to look at her 'materials' etc....normally I wouldn't really care but this just seems like an odd time to be sending these people out to go knocking on doors. Plus it woke up my dog.

Did this work?

It appears to have worked for the 4-6 weeks that I've had it up. 

Not very many people regularly walk their dogs through our alley, and if the culprit was the most common dog walker (I don't have any other specific reason to suspect him beyond that) I wouldn't be surprised if my sign might have stopped him from leaving bags in anyone's can - he's a nice, pleasant, non-antagonistic guy, and it wouldn't surprise me if he simply didn't realize how or why the practice might annoy someone.

another damned unexpected foreign transaction fee.  no notice on the site that i was getting charged out of hong kong.  not a .hk url, not a site that is commonly known as being foreign like aliexpress, nothing.  guess i'm going to have to use a no foreign transaction fee card for all sites that i'm not certain are US sites.

Jokes on you, I usually see how far I can lob that bag of shit onto your roof.  Bonus if it lands in your chimney.

the employment entity where i recently transferred into fucking reports everything into my tax basis:

* grouplife insurance

* travel/accidental insurance

* optional health insurance....

so fucking insulting, they even add $40/mo worth of fucking cell phone plan into it as well.  i mean, from a tax point point of view, i guess thats something that i consume and use yes.....but why not charge office air conditioning and furniture to my payslip while they're at it? 

 

or does the treasury think its feasible for an employee to request about 500x different company sim cards in lieu of salary, flip them on the street for cash, and in turn circumvent income taxes?

 

im doubly mad cuz tonight just got notification that the shitty ass cell phone plan ran out of data, and theres 1 day left in the month

Company cellphones are clearly defined by the IRS as a non taxable benefit.

I wonder if they are juicing their employee compensation numbers for some other tax benefit.

I do not give a flying fuck what you as a corporate entity think about COVID or George Floyd and I didn't ask. You do not need to email me to tell me you care about him, It, Them, etc, because not only do I not believe you but also, again, I didn't ask.

4.6 ounce tubes of toothpaste.  i can take 4 ounces on an airplane.  TSA could toss my 4.6 ounce tube of toothpaste, but not a 4 ounce tube.  

 

i know, toothpaste is more dense than water, but i don't feel like explaining to TSA that > 4 ounce tube by mass of toothpaste is < 4 ounces by volume so should be allowed.

We got a statement on Covid by each of our top 4-5 folks every week.  It was extremely repetitive and most often condescending.  The George Floyd tragedy kicked it up to 13 on a 10 point scale.

I understand we have a 'corporate culture' and that a statement might be warranted. They just seem to go way the hell beyond that to virtue signal and help out the folks who need direction in life anyhoo.  Those people are generally going to be fuck ups to begin with.

Cull the fucking herd if their behavior is so shittastic that it requires direction from someone they hardly freaking know.

Not sure if already posted....But, selling a house.  This used to be pretty easy but now we have to get everything "staged", grab the dogs, grab the kid and all his stuff and go hide out for awhile.  Which, totally fucks up kid's schedule which means it fucks up our schedule. Been going on since the end of last week but expecting it will end this weekend.  Can't wait.

I see your bet and raise you timing the purchase of your other home so that you neither pay two mortgages nor sleep in the street...

Pulled it off last year and it felt borderline miraculous.  So many little things can blow it all to hell.
