You’re Not Safe at the Airport, Either

Image result for images of dog pooping on airport concourse

If you look closely at the space between this woman’s feet, you’ll see what her dog left for their fellow passengers on the floor of the concourse at the airport in Denver.

Our esteemed colleague at chessgames.com, “WannaBe,” has posted the now-famous video of the incident (https://www.denverpost.com/2018/06/29/youtube-dog-pooped-at-denver-international-airport/).  No, she did not clean it up: in fact, she resented the mere mention of the problem. Nor did anyone do as my wife suggested, and rub the woman’s nose in it.

Suddenly the whole taboo against defecating in a public place has gone the way of many other of our social taboos. Liberalism at work.

Kill the culture, and the culture will kill you back.

    Such a classy lady *not*. I have flown recently and also saw two little dogs, one of them barked at me. Thankfully they did not leave behind a surprise.

      I’ve also flown recently and have seen a dog on board, which surprised me.

        What if your emotional support animal is a Komodo dragon?

        That’s really bad. If a dog fouls the cabin of an airplane, beyond the unpleasantness and health risks associated, there are even more significant issues with regard to the plane itself. Excrement is very bad for airplane structures and can cause problems which require structural repairs.

          How in the world did they ever learn that??

            Airplanes have galleys and rest rooms. The structures beneath these are very prone to corrosion. Every year or so, larger airplanes go in for an extensive maintenance “check” and they remove the seats, carpets and some of the floorboards. They aluminum supports under the lavs and galleys frequently shows sign of corrosion and has to be replaced, while supports in other areas are pristine.

            I would imagine that one dog could cause some long term damage to a plane and if something of this nature happened over and over again that could increase maintenance costs overall. Let me put it like this, if I owned an airplane, dogs would have to remain in a kennel with a solid floor, and if someone’s dog got out and fouled the floor, they’d be getting a larg bill in the mail. Excreta, liquid or solid, is very corrosive.

    I’m shocked by places I see dogs, such as grocery stores. I understand seeing eye dogs, but then it became dogs for all sorts of “services”, including emotional support dogs. I have nothing against dogs, in fact they are high on my list of favorite animals, but dogs will defecate indoors, if they are not able to go outside, and they can’t tell you about in in words.

    We are rapidly stepping in the direction of the new Dark Age.

    There has to be rules against dogs defecating at an airport. If there isn’t there needs to be. How many diseases are spread via feces? Lots.

      The taboo against public pooing is dissolving fast. Does Satan feel it’s too late for anyone to stop him now, so he can show his hand?

        That is really disgusting. When the Israelites were established as a nation, sanitary disposal of one’s feces was part of the law God gave them. Civilization itself is unraveling.

    Unfortunately, it is the zeitgeist we are stuck with. Stop the world, I want to get off.
