To the Person Who Left a Poopy Diaper in the Home Depot Parking Lot

Hah!  You thought you were going to ruin my day.  But, guess what?  My day was already ruined before we drove to Home Depot for our monthly argument about what-color -paint-we-should-paint-the-walls-this-week.  And you know what else?  Brown was not one of our options, any way.  And it was only 104 degrees in the parking lot, so we hadn’t reached the predicted temperature of 135 degrees yet, so your little package had not attained its maximum stink level yet when I almost stepped on it.

Hey, I’ve been there before.  You’re trying to live your life, and your baby keeps interfering.  That walk from the parking lot to a garbage can is just 15 yards too long.  You’re running late, and you’ve got to tile your kitchen before Hoarding, Buried Alive airs because your husband already has the DVR set for Dog, the Bounty Hunter.  Something’s gotta give, and it looks like Proper Disposal of a Poopy Diaper is the winner.

That’s unfair, I know.  You probably had a really good reason for leaving that diaper in the 13th parking space from the front door, row 6.  You’re probably a police officer who found a crying baby sitting in her car seat in the middle of the parking lot, and you knew right away when you picked her up that she needed her diaper changed, and you changed the diaper, and then got a call on your radio that you needed to respond to a 422 or something RIGHT AWAY, and you had no choice, but to abandon that diaper right there and then.

At least you took the baby.

So, don’t you worry about me.  I’m fine.  It takes a lot more than a randomly placed poopy diaper to derail me.  I’m good.  Not bitter at all.  Not sitting here obsessing about the type of people who leave poopy diapers in parking lots and other random public areas.  Not sitting here trying to type something interesting and all I can think about is a poopy diaper.  Not judgmental.  Not trying to figure out what kind of image I can include with this post that won’t gross out my readers.

I’m fine.

Rather than leave you with the disturbing image that I had burned into my brain today, here is a photo of my dog, Wonderbutt, asking, “What’s wrong with you people?”

  1. I’m sorry. That was thoughtless of me.

  2. You’ve said it all and with grace, to which I need only add amen!

    Some people!

  4. I’m glad you didn’t step in it, and I hope you have a less shitty day tomorrow.

  5. people really do not consider others….very naughty!

    A picture of WB makes any day good

  6. Don’t need a photo, I can picture the used diaper someone left in the middle of the sidewalk in my residential area. That cop must sure get around… Wondercop?

  7. thoughtless morons (no judgment here)! oh, and i can picture it precisely because it happened to me AT THE BEACH. for the love.

  8. In the first little place my husband and I lived in, the people who lived there before us flushed a diaper down the toilet. It got stuck in the pipes, and when you flushed the toilet, stinking grey water gurgled up from the drains and flooded the bathroom. Also, the backyard. Nasty, stinking water gurgled up in the backyard. The plumber discovered the diaper and my husband and I were treated to a lecture from both him and he property manager about the proper disposal of diapers. They did not notice our lack of baby.

    So, yeah. A diaper can ruin your day.

  9. That picture of Wonderbutt needs to be turned into a meme.
    I have never encountered a random diaper but I know that if I ever do I’ll both be bothered and laugh because I’ll remember this post.

  10. Well someone at some point is going to pick up that nasty diaper. We should all send positive thoughts to that poor soul.

  11. I’m often concerned when WB is worried about our behavior…

  12. Amazing!! What weird things happen where you live.

  13. Gross! Good thing Wonderbutt has trained you to be almost completely unphased by poop, farts, and other such loveliness.

  14. We’re sorry you experienced that. However, we were rolling on the floor from laughter after we read this.

    Bella and DiDi

  15. Some ppl are pigs!!!!! LOL……

  16. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after browsing through a few of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
