Shit Happens: Berlin's Little Presents on the Floor
It was a normal day, I had an appointment to make, I was a bit rushing, partially because of my terrible time management skills, partially because my appointment with the bank was shifted to another bank without my being aware. Y'know, shit happens, no big deal, and then it happens, I take a step in a little present left behind by one of Berlin's furry residents. A big pile of shit.
I was wearing my new boots that I had just gotten, so needless to say the fury of a thousand suns was resting within me, luckily an older lady saw my predicament, and came to help. She carried damn baby wipes because of how often this happens to her apparently. I was grateful, to say the least. But I couldn't stay and chat because I had an appointment.
But this brings up a good point, why the hell haven't we been regulating this harder? There's a law, but clearly no one's following this law (and let's be real, we break laws that are small all the time cause we really don't care) so regulations need to get stricter, punishment definitely needs to get more strict. To give an example, Switzerland will fine you 100 CHF (93.77 Euro) for throwing a cigarette butt on the street in Zurich, and if you didn't know, Switzerland is a pretty clean country, remarkably so in fact.
