The guy I've been seeing for the last 5 or 6 months is an ignorant moron!!!!!!! His Min Pin has been getting into his kitchen garbage a few times. It's a tall garbage can placed in the kitchen, not in a cabinet or out of reach of the dog. He comes home hours later to find the dog on the couch with some piece of garbage. I don't know what he did the first few times. But then he put chairs in front of the can and still, the dog got into it. I told him to put it up high out of reach or under the cabinet. Keep the dog from getting rewarded by getting food out of the garbage. Duh.... The other night, he told me that he came home that day and found garbage again strewn around and the dog eating something, so.....GET THIS! He put the dog into the tall garbage can OVER NIGHT! Can you imagine how awful that would be to a little dog? I told him, using my calmest, low voice, no swearing, tried to be as diplomatic as I could that that was abusive, that it was cruel and that the dog could not possibly make a connection between that and what it did hours before. I told him I could show him how to keep the dog from getting the garbage, but he didn't want to hear it....never wants any tips about teaching his dogs anything. He knows it all. He knows it all about everything. I don't know about cars or carpentry. He does. I don't tell him how to do that. I know about growing roses, have had prize winning roses and I have a very nice lawn, dark, dark green, virtually weed free and even. He even tells me that I'm pruning my roses wrong and over watering my lawn. He has no lawn and his one rose bush (the other one died) didn't even bloom. He is a bore, lacking responsiveness, sense of humor, compassion or empathy. So, what on earth have I been doing the past 6 months with this moron???? He was someone to play pool with and go for dinner with. Who needs it? Anyhow, after I told him what I thought, he proceed to YELL LOUDLY at me, cussing and telling me not to tell him how to raise his dogs. I said that I'm not telling him how to raise his dogs, just telling him that I thought stuffing your dog in a garage can over night is cruel and useless for teaching her anything but to fear him and feel bewildered. It's cruel! So he yelled, "If you don't like it, get out! Have a nice life!" So I did and I am. I am so relieved to have this tepid, red neck, ignorant, narcissistic moron out of my life. Hmph! Sorry for the rant. I just had to get it out. I hope I haven't ruined my keyboard. I'm striking these keys like a Beetoven concerto (allegro)!
