Since she made no attempt to clear up, I cleared up with the bags I carry for our dogs and 'decorated' her car (windscreen, door handles) with the contents.

When - out of guilt - I confessed to our copper neighbour, he nearly wet himself laughing. No paperwork. No confrontation. She won't do it again. How he wished he was able to mete such justice.

Yep. But using my dog's DNA rather than mine.

I bet they don't do it again.

So you have surrendered any moral high ground you may have had.

You tell us how bad speeding is, and the possible consequences, and I agree with you on that, it is not acceptable, but.....

You then describe how, when seeing a dangerously speeding motorist, you throw a big steaming bag of dog crap at him! this will make the situation much safer of course!! Had this out of control motorist gone on to plough into a bunch of schoolkids on the seafront, you would have been at best guilty of Manslaughter. this action was infinately more dangerous than the person speeding alone!

You then describe how you see someone commiting an offense, so instead of politely pointing out her error, and offering her one of your bags, you go on to commit criminal damage. What would happen if one of those little kids grabbed the car door handle after leaving the park........

I of course condemn people who leave dog crap all ove rthe place, as it is one of my pet hates, but a bigger pet hate is hypocrites!

at least my flashing my lights at a speeding motorist is not making the situation worse.

Of course you could have reported the person whose dog fouled the pavement to the local authorities, as you propose it it the proper authorities who need to take action, so they can be fined for this offence.

Talking of pet hates, I had a bind date go horribly wrong the other night, she asked me 'what's your pet hate' and I said it doesn't like having things shoved up its arse.

I have to say, I think it shows you as a hypocrite there fella!

Instead of "politely pointing out their offence" your actually aiding and abetting the speeding driver to get away with his criminal offence by warning him, so he won't get caught if you seen a bank being robbed would you warn the robber the police were on their way ? Or if you seen somebody breaking the law would you warn them if they were about to get caught ?

Perhaps he should have simply warned this lady that there may be somebody watching ready to fine her for her offence so she could have got away with it, free to do it again next time ?

You say it's not making it worse, I disagree. The guy you "saved" may will kill somebody further down that road. The lady with the dog mess is quite unlikely to do that again!

May be this thread has had its time and should just finish???

Perhaps we could move on to more fun marine type issues that we all have in common.

Or we could all just agree that Landrovers are the best 4X4XFAR
