Culture on the Cheap
Beware of Dog
One thing I throughly detest is the practice of erecting copious amounts of “Beware of Dog” and “No Parking” signage on residential property. Not only are they an eyesore, but there usually is not a canine on said premises and if someone is a big enough asshole to park in front of your driveway a twelve by eighteen inch piece of plastic is not going to deter him. The previous having been established, I rolled my eyes in disgust when I walked by this house yesterday.
Knowing a good train wreck when I see one, I went in for a closer look.
Not only does the flag on the mailbox have handy user instructions on it, but a guard dog is purported to live on the premises.
The word on the street is, he (or she) sucks.
I dunno, he looks awfully cute to me. Isn’t it kind of cruel to keep a dog tethered to the fence like this? Of course the big question is who does one call to report this: the A.S.P.C.A. or F.A.O. Schwartz?
