This has bothered me for some time, I will admit.
When I am out walking the dog, we are walking around the neighborhood, and we see a lot of people we know.
At the same time, I am usually carrying the leash in one hand, and a “little blue bag of success” in the other.
So when a neighbor drives by, am I supposed to:
- Wave the leash?
- Juggle the excrement bag and the leash to give me a free hand?
- Or wave the bag of poop?
It has puzzled me. The first option leads to finger cramps; the second leads to me inevitably dropping something and looking foolish. And the third? Well, it’s just gross.
Do you think I should write Miss Manners about this?
