and I get too much pleasure out of it sometimes.
We have newer neighbors living behind us now and they happen to have a few children...bratty children that can't stay in their own yard, and of course the parents are never outside keeping an eye on them. These kids keep coming up into our yard, playing in our trees and bushes, coming up to our
fence when our dogs are outside and tormenting them. My mom planted a small tree out back too and she's trying to get it to grow, and three times now these kids knocked it completely over, roots and all. My mom even said something to them, and she's yelled at them a few times to stay away from our fence and dogs - my mom is not intimidating in the slightest though, so of course they haven't listened.
So, my dad gave me an idea. I went outside, picked up all the dog shit and spread it all over the back yard around our bushes and trees, especially the little tree they keep knocking over. And I got a lot of joy out of doing it too! I hope those little brats come playing around our yard again, and I hope one of them falls face first into a big pile of dog shit!
