Our Sunday walk started out lovely. Quiet in the park ,nobody there but us until…..
Maybe I’m a magnet for weird things. So we’re walking on our second round near the tennis courts. We round the corner and a car pulls up to the far end of the parking lot. As we were walking the 3 ducks that are left ( from the Hobbles crowd) were right there by the path so we stopped and said Hi. So this guy opens his car door and out shoots a dog and it runs straight at the poor ducks. I turn around and yell, Put your dog on a leash, this is a leash law park. The guy goes ballistic, yelling and screaming at me. That I should just leave the park, get out of here and on and on. It was really unnerving. So I say again, just put your dog on a leash. By this time the dog had run across the field somewhere. He continues to be crazy yelling. I say I’m going to call the sheriff and he goes ballistic. Go ahead, do that, here take a picture and on and on. So as we started down the path by the play structure, I call 911 and say this is not an emergency but I don’t have the sheriffs number for urgent call. So I tell her what is happening and she says she’ll send a sheriff. Well, we did one one round, walked as far away as we could from the guy who seemed to just be sitting in his car. He then walked over somewhere I presume to try and find his dog which was still off leash. Geez, I was a little freaked out because I do walk alone often and in the dark sometimes. I’m definitely bringing pepper spray tomorrow. But it was so over the top. I mean are people going crazy. It was so belligerent and weird.
Anyway, we never saw the sheriff so…
Today is a gym day, and I got my oil changed.
I did the bathroom zone already( an advantage of having only one teeny tiny bathroom) and 2 loads of laundry( it’s sheet day).
This afternoon I’m going to put a chicken to roast. It’s warm out but it shouldn’t be too hot to use the oven.
One thought on “Simple Sunday”
People who aren’t responsible pet owners really frustrate me. There is a dog near us. Owners are very nice people, but their dog has attacked multiple other animals, and he sometimes has it off leash. My son is terrified of this dog.
Sorry about your experience!
