TWO weeks ago I had to clean dog poo from outside my 88-year-old neighbours’ gate.

Then a young man stopped with his dog outside our gate and his dog went to the toilet.

When I approached him to pick it up, he said his arm was in a sling. I told him he could stand on the dog lead and pick it up with his other hand. I am an old man. He swore at me. I picked up the mess. Ten minutes later he came back to remove it.
