Reading one of the threads on animals reminded me of something:
I was in Best Buy yesterday, and I saw one of those idiots who brings their pet into the store. It was a little Boston Terrier, and he had it in the shopping cart with its leash and collar on. The dog, being a dog, decided to jump out of the cart, and the leash got caught. The poor dog wound up hanging by its leash over the side of the cart while its fuckhead owner freaked out. I'm a dog person, but I'm not one of those people who likes to pretend they're "just like us." This, however, really bothered me, and for some reason it stuck with me. The dog looked to be OK, aside from being completely terrified, but that doesn't change the fact that it wound up hanging because its owner just had to drag him into a store.
