Wow – If she’s already cleaning them up to get them out of her yard, why not just bag them and be done?!?  That wouldn’t take any more time than it takes to be rude and dump them on someone else.

I wonder if theres ongoing drama between them over the trees. It does seem like bagging them or dumping them over the fence would be the same amount of work.  I’m guessing there’s more to the story and she’s being intentionally passive aggressive.

I once had a neighbour who had a big dog. Our backyards bordered on each other. He actually used to scoop up his dog’s poop with a shovel and throw it over the fence into my yard. I had two small children who played in the yard and he never even looked to see who he might be hitting.

I spoke to him and asked him to please not do that anymore. Besides making me pick up poop from a dog I didn’t own, it was a health hazard for my children. He just kept doing it.

I decided there was more than one way to handle the situation. I lined a cardboard box with a plastic garbage bag and each time I scooped poop, I added it to the box. Eventually when it was full, I soaked it down with the hose to make sure it was all really moist and smelly. I then sealed it up and addressed it to him to look like a package the postal service might have delivered. I added a tag that said ” I think this belongs to you”.

I left the package on his front door when he was at work. He never threw poop over the fence again. I would have killed to see the look on his face when he opened the package.

@julies1949:  Haha. I can see myself doing this and my poor even tempered husband just being like “do we really need to be storing a box of dog shit??”. Damn it, I’m hanging onto that bad boy till its full enough to deliver!
