Party Poopers

About two weeks ago, a very nice dog-owning couple renting at the Santiago Street Lofts moved out–with them went our mysterious problem of unpicked-up dog poop.

It was frustrating to see the blatant disregard for other dog owners and folks that walk around the community or sit in the community courtyard, only to be greeted by a steamy pile of mush, accompanied by a swarm of angry flies.

What irked me more was that even after multiple signs were posted in the common area by “yours truly”, the problem persisted; in fact, it got worse!

These renters, as nice as they were, were “bad renters” in my eyes. I say “bad” because they proved the generalization that says that renters just don’t give a crap.

When it comes down to it, the blame ultimately lies with the individual(s) who makes the decision to rent their place out in communities such as ours.

If you don’t want to take part in our kick-ass community, then please, rent your place out to someone who does.

Amen Ben. Yes, renters are welcome here, but only if you take pride in your home and community. Unfortunately, we have had our share of "bad" renters.

I think homeowners that rent to "bad renters" should be fined and a nice pile-a-poop sent to their mailbox.
