Shortcuts are fine. I just don't like the modern microwaves that seem to only have shortcuts.

You have no idea how POed I am to have someone leave their dog's poop on my lawn.

My condo has lots of common areas with grass and trees. The new condos across the street don't have pretty areas. The people who live in the new condos like to walk their dogs in my condo. Why can't they at least scoop up their dog messes? That's standard behaviour nowadays.

Have your management company contact theirs and have them send out a general notice.

If that doesn't work, collect all the poop, put it in a brown paper bag, place it on their front doorstep and set it on fire.

But I don't know which of the new condos these people live in. Across the street used to be a field and some woods. Now there are 15 or so new condos. I miss the field and the little woods.

Good idea to have the condo board send a letter to their condo board.

That would be boring and I don't have a dog.

I've tried. He panics and then he can squirm out of a tight harness. Besides, I'm pretty sure Shreddy would have good enough manners not to poop on someone's lawn.

Okay. My petty vent concerns this site. Why is it that when you click on one thread, it goes right to the last page and on other threads you get page one and have to click on the last page. Annoying to say the least. Why can't all the threads be the same?

Just seeing if you are paying attention...

I don't know why it does that, makes me crazy, too!
