Intern stuck with poo

Topey dodged this On the Job: Picking up the dog's business
May 28, 2013



With a child-sized gardening hoe in hand, I swiped at the feces as the summer breeze pushed the stench up into my nostrils.

I started to gag. This was my first On The Job assignment as a Register intern, filling in for reporter Melissa Topey, who is on vacation.

She picked a great week. Within 10 minutes, I was staring to hope my first On the Job would be my last.

But I’m not a quitter. I tried to gently lift the poop, but I missed and instead stabbed at the heaping pile left by a Boxer. Flies were swarming, but I had to keep going.

What a crappy job!


I know I'm gonna get slammed for asking, but is THIS really considered news??


Not really I must agree, but that is my Nephew, and reading the whole story in yesterdays paper was quite entertaining. Knowing how Brandon is around a lot of things, I found it hysterical! Keep up the great writing, Brandoman!!!!!

I agree with "xtensionofme". I think this "On the Job" thing has pretty much run it's course, anyway.

Is it that hard to pick up dog poop?


So you're telling me I have to get the ePaper for seven days to get seven days and the answer will magically appear?
