A Dog-Waste removal firm had a customer who was behind on payments. The owner got so incredibly angry about it that she decided to take matters into her own hands and give the poop back. She emptied bag upon bag of dog feces back into this woman’s yard.
Melinda Hofmann, owner of The Bomb Squad dog waste pick-up service, tried to collect a $150 payment from Deborah Dillow on Monday night.
When Dillow didn’t answer the door, Hofmann went to her truck to write another notice – but she quickly changed her mind.
“I started to go back and write another note, but I just decided to give her poop back,” Hofmann said Wednesday.
So then, from the back end of her truck, Hofmann started slinging feces – 30 gallons of it, according to police – onto Dillow’s front yard.
Hofmann admitted she wasn’t exactly thinking rationally at the time, but that didn’t stop her.
“Actually, once I started doing it, I kind of lost all rational thought together and I just got into this mode of emptying bags,” she said. “And as I was flinging the poo all over her yard – it felt really good, and I just kept doing it.”
Sounds like a pretty unprofessional way of getting your client back if you ask me. Hofman has been making a living of picking up poop for over 10 years. Good job, lady. AND the client, Dillow, who was behind on payments is suffering from cancer and had just spent $700 on medication. You can’t always jump to conclusions about people when you don’t know their story. This poor woman who was behind on $150 (not that much) deserved a yard full of crap? I don’t think so.
