Who declared Opposite Day?

July 12th, 2011 · 59 comments

We’ve already seen people throwing urine in bottles out of their window…and now, shit in bags? Who does that?!

(Apparently, at least one dog owner in Bailey’s NYC apartment building.)

Someone is dropping bags of Dog Shit from their apartment into the building courtyard. To make matters worse, it does not always make it to the ground. Last nights bag was outside my window. Again. This must stop before management is involved. (Eww, gross!)

      The missing apostrophe is still in Bailey’s apartment.
      She has oodles of unused apostrophes in there, so many that the gravitational pull of their collective mass drew a shit-bag right onto her window ledge.

      It really is. Especially because it’s quite possible there’s a LOT of apartments that could be at fault, so the note-writer certainly couldn’t approach each person.

      I would REALLY hate to be walking by when one of those bags DOES make it to the ground. >_<

      You can almost imagine the slo-mo replay of the bag impacting, bursting and the resulting corona of dog droppings forming an artistic pattern on the ground.

      I bet some nonce from an art gallery would buy the thing and display it as a ‘dialogue on the throw away society’ or some other bollox. A bit like this: http://almostgenius.com/?p=394 ( NSFW)

    Interesting. There was such a bag up in the tree outside my apartment door for months, and I imagined someone threw it upwards from the ground.

    Now with different residents in the apartment above, one morning last month around 7 AM they started tossing bag after bag after bag of trash (at least 20) to the ground from the second floor landing right outside my floor-to-ceiling windows. Woke me with a start and totally alarmed my cats. One of the bags was full of soiled kitty litter which exploded on the sidewalk right where everyone has to walk to get up the stairs right outside my door- they removed the bag and left the contents. For a week. You’d have to tiptoe through and the litter and poop would stick in your shoe treads. I finally went to the dollar store to buy a broom and cleaned it up myself. Now they have had one bag of trash outside their door on their balcony right above my door for a week and two days in 100+ heat.

    I don’t want to write a PAN and I hate complaining to management like a bitch all the time. I guess it’s better than the glass beer bottles the last neighbors above used to toss down that would smash and they would ignore the broken glass everywhere like they had no idea how it got there. People are just assholes!

      At one point we had people who were letting their dogs poop in the common areas in the apartment building (indoor, carpeted areas) and just leaving it there.

      There was also a guy who liked to throw things from the 3rd floor while people on the ground were walking by. I almost got hit twice.

      So yeah, people *are* assholes*.

      BTW, it’s totally legit to complain to management about problems in the common areas, especially if it’s a safety issue like broken glass. Any half decent management would rather hear about it so they can deal with it than get a lawsuit later after someone hurts themselves.

      You are not an ass for reporting broken bottles or trash or kitty litter being thrown around and not cleaned up. That is why you pay your apartment manager is to deal with stuff like this. Report away!

      Aw, thanks! Basically not a fuck is given in general by the management. They don’t care about the great deal of broken glass outside all along my wall, I’ve been here almost a year. If I’m only annoyed every 2 months or so I feel I should consider myself lucky. I just don’t understand the complete lack of consideration. A constant stream of brats. I’m hoping someone like myself will move in upstairs to stay since I’m pretty much stuck here for the duration.

      The square of grass outside my windows is where all the pets come to do their doodie, and it’s always picked up, unlike other corners around the complex, so I should thank my lucky stars.

    When my sister was about 10, my mom asked her to change the litter in our cat’s litter box. My sister took the litter box onto the back patio of our 2nd-floor apartment building, and dumped it over the edge. She is probably due a passive aggressive note or two.

    I wonder if perhaps the bags are supposed to get stuck by the note writers window, and sometimes by accident end up on the ground instead. Maybe he’s had too many rowdy late night parties and this is the upstairs neighbor’s creative payback. In any case, what I mostly get out of this note is how glad I am yet again not to live in an apartment.

    People are flinging bags of poo out of their apartments, and this person writes a note instead of immediately contacting management?

    Pretty mellow notewriter. I’d have taken a few days off of work, set up cameras, and turned the footage over to management.

    I would then send copies to that person’s family, friends and co-workers.
    I’d probably post it on youtube, as well.

    Reminds me of my first dorm days at WSU. Dog crap was the least of your worries being tossed from the windows. Let’s see…vomit, people pissing out the window, books, alcoholic beverages (sometimes in its container, but usually not), a TV set and a couch from the top floor student lounge were items flung during my one semester there. I also lived in a ground floor apt in the Portland area, and what used to tick me off were the cigarrette butts the folks on the 2nd floor always chucked onto my back porch.

      Really? I lived in the dorms at WSU and never had any issues beyond a girl leaving dishes in the kitchen for a really long time (someone else ended up washing to to avoid stinking it up). Never saw vomit anywhere.

      Granted, I was living in the science dorms for one semester and an age-restricted dorm (though I was technically too young) the next, so I guess it may just come down to where you live. Nerds and antisocial older students… yeah.

      Reminds me of my college days too. I did not live in a dorm. I lived at home with my dad. However I had some friends who had their own apartment. I felt sorry for their apartment neighbors. They had wild parties there pretty much every weekend with tons fo people. One night we had people puking off the balcony to the ground below and another person puking off another communal breezeway balcony down three stories to the ground below. The next morning some neighbor kid was playing with the puke in the bushes and no surprise when the parent filed a complaint. I am kinda shocked they never got kicked out.
      They had a three complaints and you are out policy and I think they got 3 but they were moving about the time they got the 3rd anyway, so they didn’t get kicked out. Good times LOL!

      Not sure when you were there, Caitlin, but I was there Fall of 1987 staying in Gannon Hall. At that time, WSU was nothing but a party commune. Too young? Never an issue. Especially since my roomie was 27. Funny thing is, I was only 18, and HE got carded all the time. There was always puke in the hallways, stairwells, bathrooms and even the water fountains on the weekends. I wasn’t a real partier, so it wasn’t really a good place for me. I ended up going to community college for my A.A. then transferred to WWU.

    Maybe not a dude who throws poop bags… In my last (very large) apt complex, the dumpster was allllll the way in the back of the complex. I didn’t want to throw bags of shit in my own personal inside trashcan and stink up the house. I put them by the back door porch instead, to wait until I had to walk the garbage back to the dumpster. I was horrified to realize that some of the bags had blown off on a windy day into a neighbor’s space below. Just saying, may not be a “justified” pa note… although I get how gross that would be for the neighbor.

      The airborne poop event has happened before. Fairly often, from the sound of it. Unless you live in tornado alley, you probably don’t have frequent wind storms powerful enough to blow off bags of poop around on that frequent a basis. So, yeah, maybe, if it were just that once. Not when it is a pattern.

      i have a hoarder neighbor across the hall from me – she was leaving bags of (what i assumed was) dog poop on her door knob for hours at a time & the whole building would smell like that stench for hours. i complained to management – and now she hates me, i’m the “rude” one.
      anyhow – it NEVER occurred to me that it might be the hoarder’s poop, not her dog’s, until i read your comment!! ugh – somehow i find that idea of it being human poop a few levels higher on the scale of repulsive.

    As others have noted, that is, frankly, an incredibly measured response. I’m certain mine wouldn’t be so polite.

    One has to assume they’ve at least entertained fantasies of a trebuchet installed by their window, triggered to return the offending parcel to sender.

    The note writer really should go to the management. When I was visiting at my grandma’s old apartment complex (in a bad part of town), a kid shot me with an airsoft gun. This wouldn’t be quite as big an issue if it wasn’t on a high setting from mere feet away and if I wasn’t a young kid dealing with severe chronic pain. It hurt me far worse than it would’ve hurt a “normal” person and my grandma (who has pain too and is very aggressive when it comes to me) was about to bite someone’s head off if they didn’t deal with this properly.

    Anyways, we went to the management and they went to the police and the police recommended eviction. The managers were actually glad of that because the kids’ families had been horrible renters but hadn’t done anything to justify eviction before then.

    Point is, if you have a manager who cares about the quality of their building, they might be thrilled you’re complaining.

    We had an angry neighbor dump the contents of her dog’s litter box on our driveway. (yes, there ARE such things.) Apparently she did it twice, the first time while we were out of town, but someone unknown cleaned it up. It took a while to figure out who it was and why it was done, and was totally unexpected from her. Turned out to be over an HOA notice and fine. My husband’s on the board (never show up to an HOA meeting unless you WANT to be a board member), but since we were out of town, he had nothing to do with the decision to send it, and would have fought against it if he had known. Stupid way to get your problem resolved!

    Ah, people are wonderful (totally sarcastic remark).
    I used to live on a house (street level, no neighbours, a one-family house) and people would toss dog poop bags at my backyard. And leftover sandwiches, cans, someone even left a smal broken chair once. I was outraged, really. It was my backyard and I used to keep it really clean, I had my plants, my laundry room was there… not that it looked abandoned or nothing.

    I just don’t get it. If you take the time and effort to pick up your dog’s poop and put it in a bag, why wouldn’t you walk twenty more steps until you got to the public garbage can? Why you had to throw it at someone’s house? I would’ve loved to be there when the bag was thrown. As it didn’t break, I would’ve picked it up and throw it back right into the offender’s face hoping it would explode then.
