Even after asking for it to be cleared up ready , sometimes on the day there’s still a few heaps about .

It’s one of the few jobs that I never ask my lads to do, i look around for the customers shit shovel, and get cracking.

Personally,It’s often at the pricing stage that I manage to stand in a hidden heap, and once back on the road to the next quote,the penny drops after that horrendous smell wafts up from the pedals.

Dog owners are desensitized to feces.

I’ve got two labs and just let them shit in the house now, it bothers me so little.

Personally I think cat shit is even worse. It stinks worse somehow and it's smaller so easier to miss and inadvertently step on.

Don't get me going on cat shit, at least the dogs only do it in their own garden and not the neighbours freshly prepared veggie patch!!

Oh Jesus, thanks for reminding me!
When we moved house about five years ago one of the big reasons for me was to get away from our neighbour's 5 or 6 cats that were constantly shitting in our garden. It was like their personal litter tray, bloody disgusting. They also have the habit of burying it in soft ground, waiting for you to find it as you're planting or picking your veggies. Something that dogs don't do.

I complained to the neighbour but to no avail. I went as far as speaking to Citizens Advice about it; they told me that there was nothing within the law that can be done about the issue. Outrageous.

Don't get me started on ******** cats.
