“Dear PoPville,

Dog owners seem to consider it perfectly normal to dump their dog’s poop bags in other people’s trash can. I hate to break this to them but dog poop bags explode when you put stuff on top of them (like trash bags for instance or trash in general). Not to mention the fact that many people do not even bother to close the bag in which they have just picked up the warm present left by their dogs. In the end, more often than not, the owner of the trash can will end up with poop spread all over his can. Have you noticed how tall the cans are? Do you realize how pleasant an experience it is to crawl into one to brush the shit out? Oh, and the smell of over-cooked dog poop at the end of the day when you open the can is too lovely to describe.

I appreciate the fact that people scoop the poop, but could you please consider dumping them in public open air trash cans?”
