…how irresponsible pet owners yell and scream at their (escaped) pets instead of taking a long, hard look at themselves?
I had a run in with a horrible, gross man this morning. His little dog was running around and for the record: I will always choose an animal over a stupid human being.
The man comes out as he hears me trying to get the dog home, and starts yelling and screaming at the dog. I’m (in my car) waiting because I was going to tell him that I saw his dog out a few days earlier, too. As he sees that I’m still there he screams, “GET AWAY FROM MY CAR. WATCH THE CAR.”
I was stunned.
I was very far away from his car and in no way was I at risk for hitting it.
He continues to scream, “WATCH THE CAR. I AM GOING TO CALL THE POLICE YOU CRAZY B*TCH. DON’T WORRY ABOUT MY DOG. WATCH THE CARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.”
Did I mention a little tiny boy (maybe 2 years old?) was following at this man’s feet and making some noise? I know this poor baby was terrified at what he was witnessing.
I pulled out my phone and took his picture. And, a picture of the dog before he was ushered to the back area.
I was dumbfounded. Speechless.
I asked him, “Why are you being such a dick?”
And also, just for the record: I didn’t get a word in edgewise to this crazy man. He just yelled his fool head off.
My heart breaks for that poor dog. Seriously.
But I know I can’t save them all. It’s hard.
