So I saw the lad of 13(?) or so, whom I see most mornings, out with his lovely dog this morning as per usual, but today I saw 'em just as the dog was rising from pooing, slap bang in the mmiddle of the footpath, without picking it up.
Just. Not. On.
Did I say anything to him? Of course not. a) I was in a hurry to catch my train, and b) I can't be doing with finding the lad's dad waiting for me the next morning, ready to gove me a piece of his mind.
Do I grass the lad up to the relevant council department?
I want to, cos dog poo on city footpaths is freaking horrible. And particularly abundant on this particular street and it's surrounding streets.
But something is holding me back. Partly cos he's only barely old enough to take responsibility for being a dog fouling git. And partly because I feel like this is one more step to becoming even more of a tutting, tittle tattling old git than I already am.
