Dr. Freud’s Salon Scatologica

September 30th, 2007 · 99 comments

Presenting, for your analysis, this anonymous contribution from a hair salon in Bettendorf, Iowa (pop. 32,394). For the scatologically inclined vandal (and for Putz’s owner) the unconscious issues at play appear to be anything but borderline. College psych majors: care to address which stage of psychosexual development is associated with passive-aggressiveness?

To the Poop Planting Bandit

related: I can’t stand this shit anymore

UPDATE: Here’s a little more backstory on the situation from our note’s submitter. (Warning: this might confuse more than it illuminates.)

the owner of a salon i work at posted this for the individual that had placed dog poop in the corridor that is shared by other businesses. they left the feces in the hallway shortly after her and her st. bernard, putz, arrived to work. putz goes everywhere with her. for the past eight months he’s grown tremendously, and his massive size at this point has freaked out other store owners. putz sleeps in the back room and he has suburb potty training skills — and his owner always picks up after him.

the landlord approached her [re: the feces in the hallway] and said he was very bothered by the possible health code concern. he later told her not to worry about it, seeing how it was totally impossible for putz to let himself out the back door, take a dump in the corridor, then turn around and open the door to let himself back in.

someone kept tearing down her note, so she added the written message at the bottom.

    That poop was fucking delicious.

    Does the bandit have tons of poop, or tons of class, I’m confused.

    We need an update, beacuse It’s the 30th now and I would love to know what the bandit did.

    ps. Who the hell names their dog Putz?

    I can't help but wonder as well if there are tons of poop or tons of fliers.  I also wonder if the handwritten portion of the note was posted by the bandit his/herself or by the dog owner.  I would love this note even more if the note was from the bandit.

    Team Bandit just for handling poop.

    Yahoo!  Another Mad Bomber sighting.  I knew they'd be going cross-country with that shit.

    GVI: That's fucking gourmet, that's what that comment is.  :D
    I love the brown for "poop", then the purple (?) for "Putz", very well composed.
    Yeah, so what's up with the 9/28 deadline?  Was that to make sure to show up on this site?
    This just sounds like one of the first pitches for "The Fugitive":  It wasn't me, it was the one-armed man pooping in the building!
    Well, I'm assuming it occurred in the building — I need more details.  Come on, I'm begging ya!
    You know, caclark4, you are on to something there.  It's a shameless marketing ploy by the owner.  I'm not sure what demographic you'd go for however, but it is Iowa, I suppose.  :)

    What if the dog owner American Hair is stone cold paranoid and in denial about her –justly, I have no doubt– well-loved doggie? What if he simply could not hold it anymore?  All the beauticians who work there are none the wiser (unless they have been gathering around the water cooler kvetching about the psycho-sexually fixated owner), and must be looking at each other in a new light of late..  Such lengths to frame the dog!

    I’m always mildy irritated by people who brag about having a big dog, as if somehow it’s so bad-ass or prestigious to have a big dog rather than a small one. Usually these peole get off on seeing their dog intimidate others. No wonder people don’t want that dog around their workplace.

    I wonder if the framing (if it actually occurred) was done using dog or human excrement? Brutal either way.

    "Boss, there's another dog crap in the storage room."
    "What? Somebody took another crap in the storage room?  Those dirty bastards!"

    "Boss, no one was in there all day but Putz…"

    As far as the poop, I'd check it for corn kernels.  That's how you could tell if it came from the two-legged or the four-legged variety of being.  Although I pity the fool who has that job.

    So the owner of the salon takes her(or his) dog to work and the employees don't like it. Boo-friggity-hoo.

    I could see this act of rebellion if the person penning the posting pertaining to the persecution of putz happened to be a presumptuous manager but this is the OWNER of the FRIGGING COMPANY!

    The person who owns the company I work for plays by her own rules. Some of my coworkers don't like it to which I respond: "Paycheck." If she wants to take four weeks off, more power to her. She pays all of us to do her work for her. That's the point of employees, right?

    If you don't like the way your manager treats you, go over his head, if you have issues with the owner…quit.

    Team Putz for me.

    If the writer of the note finds planting poop to frame a dog only "borderline nasty," I'd hate to think what he/she thinks is crossing the line.

    I initially thought the handwritten portion was from the poop planter, but I don't think he/she would use the word "reposting."  I think maybe the poop planter is tearing the signs down, and the note writer is stating that he/she has tons of copies of this sign and will keep putting up replacements until the 28th.  So now the big question is: Why the 28th?  Will the note writer have reached full vindication by that point and no longer feel the need to vent his/her anger to the world?

    Maybe PPB was watching Putz, and when s/he did her/his business in the appropriate locale, PPB swooped, scooped, and deposited it in the store.

    This would seem to reconcile the banditry with the planting, at least in the owner's mind, lol.

    If the note writer considers poop planting only "borderline nasty," I have to wonder what would be considered crossing the line.

    I think the handwritten portion is from the writer saying she has tons of copies of the note and will keep reposting them everytime one is torn down (presumably by the poop planter or her minions).  Why she will stop on the 28th is still a mystery. 

    Speaking of presumptions, I don't claim to know the gender of either person in this drama, I just got sick of typing he/she and him/her in the above narrative.

    I bet the owner was reposting them for a period of time to make sure whoever they suspected planting it was able to see the note.

    I wonder why the owner assumes the ppb failed so miserably.  The ppb apparently executed their purpose.  Which then leads me to believe that the purpose went unnoticed by customers [the owner found it right away and disposed of it] therefore explains the "you should be embarrassed for trying so hard…" since the ppb had to go through the effort of retrieving poop, finding the perfect location to frame the dog [all while handling the poop] and then placing it in the desired location.

    The "further seconded" portion leads me to believe the dog may have more class than the ppb since he doesn't leave his shit in public places.

    It's possible that this salon is in a mall of some sort and the owner is vexing her neighbors. It could even be a merchant court of some sort where everybody has external entrances. There's an accountant around the corner from my office who leaves her dog out and he craps all over the side yard.

    I'm really into the nannynannybooboo of saying: "[you don't have a dog] nearly as cool or big." Like that's why their tryna set her up.

    And then seeing the back story, its even better – its the nannynannybooboo of: You're scared of my dog at work and there's nothing you can do about it….and what's more is I don't even care! I think he's cool. So there.

    She may have been wronged but I get the feeling she's a little insecure about her choices – you know, all that challenging the (not a) bandit to grow some balls – she could have just been sensitive enough to notice it was freaking people out and stop bringing the dog.

    Wording can be telling, yes?

    On the other hand – planting poop is pretty pathetic.

    doesn't "Putz" refer to the male anatomy in Yiddish?  How is that an appropriate name for dog…unless it's a "he" and it's HUGE, maybe….

    The backstory does clear some things up, although sometimes speculating is just as much fun!

    If the landlord believes that it's not Putz's ploppers populating the parquet, hopefully he'll send a "cut-it-out" message to the other tenants.

    I think that the poop person has a clear case of poop exhibitionism. He/she is very proud of the poop and wants to share it with the world. Or more aptly, their own limited world that encompasses the salon & its environs.

    Maybe the dog owner should take the time to introduce her putz to the other shop owners.  Big dogs can be intimidating to people who don't have one.  If they get to know the dog, the poop bandit  my stop the "borderline nastiness".

    "suburb potty training skills"?
    Does Putz use the toilet?
    Maybe he's one of the dogs in the awful "dogs playing poker" picture.

    I have a big scar on my upper arm where a "big dog" tried to break it off. The dog is now dead. I have big dogs…but I DO NOT take them into public spaces where others may be intimidated by them! I hate when I see dogs at our local Farmer's Market, since they bother folks, especially sniffing crotches! Ugh!

    "has suburb potty training skills"

    I'm wondering if the word was supposed to be 'superb' or if the dog really is trained for downtown poopage

    that landlord is awesome for recognizing the sabotage, and the really big, really cool dog wouldn't bother me personally, but I could see how someone might be freaked out, especially if they don't like dogs or are allergic

    too bad they couldn't get a cup of tea and sort it out

    Re:  Hallway during business hours

    Do not expect the hallway to improve during business hours under the present rent agreement.  It's been going on for eight months now and is not about to change before September 28th.  Do you wonder why you never see Putz in the halls?  I guess it is better to let a situation fester inside than to come up with a policy to improve conditions.

    So let's plant poop and forget about the business climate.  Forget about the stench and a good working environment – get those tons of signs posted.
    P.S.  And don't forget to grow some balls and give the St. Bernard a BIG HUG today and everyday!

    GW, your dialog made me chuckle with recognition, having had to humor (too)  many bosses, each with their particular issues, through these nutty years.

    You can like 'em, you can sometimes love 'em, but they are always crazy.

    My benevolent but exacting current boss deadpans "'ribbit," when he burps, for a small, just-try-to-keep-a straight-face-when-he-does-it example.

    The disappearing comment sitchu is weird, They used to show up so jiffy pop.

    Well– price to pay for all the new cool features to the site, maybe.

    I'll wait a spell to see if my last post shows up before trying it again. Maybe to be conservative, a person would copy and paste a cherished comment –back it up to somewhere, wordpad or somethin', just in case the poop perp prowls.

    First up.  Dogs freak me out because I have a phobia for slugs, snails and all things slimy ie dog drool.

    So… on the one hand, I can understand how workers nearby are worried by the presence of a huge creature whose entire raison d’etre is to encase them and everything else in its immediate vicinity in a caccoon of it’s own drool – for that is what dogs are.  They also smell grim, even when regularly washed and brushed.

    That said, trying to frame a dog by doing a big pooh in the hall, surely reaches another dimension of sad.

    On the other hand, who has separation anguish, the lady or the dog?

    Anyone who can’t bear to be apart from their pet while they work has got to be almost as damaged and strange, in their own way, as the person who poohed in the hall and pretended it was the dog. 

    Team Terry.

    It was Putz who pooed in the hall all along.

    what are “suburb potty training skills”? I live in an urban area and didn’t realize the snobs up in the suburbs had different training methods.

    Geez, why do they think they are better than me?

      Putz is not only big, he’s also COOL.

      Let’s keep that in mind, please. It’s not just about size. It’s about suavemente. The dog is cool. I think that’s being overlooked here.

      Framing Putz from dog-envy = bad.

      Because Putz = cool.

      I’ve got nothing against doggies, big or small, cool or . . . nerdish? . . . but they scare all hell out of some people and ought to be left at home. I don’t even know Putz, but I have the slightest inclination to kick him until he’s dead, just to allow this group of Iowans to focus on the flipping caucus, for God’s sake. What a lot of energy to spend on a pile of poop.

      Oh, well. That’s a bit like the caucus sometimes, I s’pose.
