No I didn’t assume that at all. I was just trying to introduce a view you might not have considered.
Maybe she thinks her dog shares the crap through the neighbourhood and yours concentrated on one areas unfairly ;-)
Okay, thanks for your thoughts - clearly the sweet innocent Khmer lady is in the right and the barang invader is in the wrong. Got it.

Don’t be so sensitive.
You asked for comments, I gave some. I didn’t say you were wrong. I tried to suggest a potential reason why she may be pissed.
I didn’t in any way imply her aggression was justified.
What did you want? Want everyone to cry ‘life isn’t fair’ with you?

What about picking up your dog shit ? Totally weird I know, but wouldn't that confuse your neighbors from hell ? 8)

Honestly I was saving us both some time by getting you to the "don't be sensitive" comment sooner rather than later. Plenty of posters here want to play "opposite view" - can't be fagged playing that game.

Kinda covered that in the OP but I can play out the scenario if it pleases you. I carry a plastic bag, use it as a glove and pick up the dog shit. Tie off the bag, and then add the bag to the mountains of rubbish that are right there on the road. At the same time I could pick up her dog's crap as well, just to truly confuse her.

Seriously though, reminds me of an event a couple of years ago. The compound neighbour had a wedding which left the compound with about a half a foot of food scraps and rubbish (I posted about this previously) that the rats moved in on, so in a WWJD moment I cleaned the compound (8 houses, from memory) and hosed it out. As I was finishing up the neighbours opened their doors wide and swept out the foot of rubbish that had been left inside their house, glared at me, and slammed their doors shut again. Now obviously me cleaning up was in some way insulting and wrong, but FFS. This was the property the landlord stole the a/c units from, happy to be gone from there.

Anyhoo, how's YOUR day?

Next time I’ll just give a pithy smartass comment rather than apply any thought to what I took to be a serious request for comment.

Yeah mate, she’s a bitch. You should drop your trousers and take a dump beside her gate too.

I acknowledged and responded to your thoughtful response to my request for comment, you repeated why you thought I might be wrong and - be honest - you were ready to double-down. Tell me I'm wrong.

Sorry do i understand right that you send your team members to walk your dog?
Is it polite to ask why?
Why you don't walk your dog by yourself and same time you can defend your and dogs actions?

No problem with asking why - we're a social enterprise and very much a family environment. We ALL walk the dog, and interestingly the lady in question never utters a sound when my wife or I are walking the dog, she only picks on the young women in the team. When we say team, we include ourselves. The other team members playfully argue over who gets to walk the dog, it's one of the fun parts of the job for them.

Thank you for the reply.
I have couple more questions but maybe best i don't ask since would piss you off most sure and i am not looking more enemies on this forum.

To answer your original question, maybe would be best not to take your dog in front of the auntie's failing business anymore. Wait a little, the business fails and then your dog can poopoo in the failed business as a statement.
Also maybe would be good if you are a bit more relaxed about basic things in life. Most sure you would live some more years older. Stress and other stuff is not healthy.
Just an idea without knowing your conditions better. If you would like to share more info, would be happy to learn more and even support your social enterprise.
