Really?

Last week, I was walking Una while pushing Kung Fu Panda in his stroller. As frequently happens, we came upon a black plastic bag lying in the middle of the sidewalk. There is a sandwich shop around the corner, and they use black plastic bags to package their orders. The number of them I spot floating around the neighborhood seems to indicate that people eat while walking, flinging their bags behind them.

This particular time, though, I did not notice that the bag was knotted. When I pushed the stroller over it, I heard a crunch, and the tires momentarily got stuck in something squishy before I cleared the bag.

Three teenage girls sitting on a wall nearby said, "Eww!"



One of them added, "There was a squirrel in that bag."

Really?

So you found a dead squirrel and stuffed it in a plastic sandwich bag you found fluttering down the street.

Really?

Then, instead of depositing said bag in the trash can, you left it lying in the middle of a small sidewalk.

Really??

And then, when you saw a woman with a baby carriage and a dog headed straight for that bagged squirrel, you didn't think it was a good idea to warn her.

Really???

You thought, "No, I'll just sit here and watch her push a baby stroller over a bagged, mangled squirrel corpse. Then I'll wrinkle up my nose in distaste as if she'd done it on purpose."

Really???

I mean, really???

Moral:
Don't run over anything unless you know what it is.

Hey popfiend. Would this be the appropriate time to use that word you taught me last week? haha

I take it this is a word that can't be said in polite company?

Douchenozzle.

Douche.

Nozzle.

I like it because it says so much and flows off the tongue.

But no, not in polite company.

:D

I suppose it is possible that the girls didn't put the dead squirrel into the sandwich bag, but saw someone else do it... either way, I agree with "Eeeew!"

Even so, they knew it was there and didn't say anything!

This goes beyond grose. Shakes head that people are so awful to not even say a thing.
