Here’s the latest drama from my neighborhood facebook group:

Grace posted a complaint about a nearby dog barking throughout the day. Weird to post it to facebook, but her complaint was reasonable and nicely written.

In response, there was some chatter, but also someone named Jason who said it was probably his new dog, and he would try to take care of it.

A few days go by and Jason posts an update because he had put a bark collar on to his dog. Apparently the dog escaped the yard and kept hiding, but was eventually found. He wasn’t complaining, just giving an update to show that he was attempting to deal with the problem.

That’s when things started to go south. Everyone came out of the woodwork to condemn Grace for complaining about the barking dog and that because of her the dog is being traumatized by wearing the bark collar. People living almost a block away were saying “the barking doesn’t bother me, so you shouldn’t have said anything!” Jason tried to defuse the situation by saying Grace was reasonable and that his dog is always kind of stupid (his words) and escaping or hiding.

That’s where things stand right now, but I’m sure it’s not over yet. Meanwhile, I just want to be able to walk along the sidewalk without dodging huge piles of shit everywhere. Something tells me I won’t get that resolved on facebook....
