    I believe the technical term for those are "pile drivers".

    The point at the end about the disruption to legitimate service dogs and those who legitimately need them is spot on. I have witnessed this first hand in a few places now, even once where a faux service dog actually attacked a blind man's service dog standing at a street corner as the man was about to cross the street.

    As a dog owner, it's pretty disheartening. As a human being, I just don't get it. I love my dogs too, but they don't need (nor would I want them) to go everywhere with me.

    Don't get me started on this! :mad:

    We have another angle on this playing out in our building which is pet-friendly, but dog-free. Birds, fish, rabbits, cats are fine, but no dogs. You're told this up front when you're preparing your bd. package - the reason being they bark, poop, bite people in the elevator, etc. Sorry, no dogs. All of a sudden I start noticing people in the lobby w/ dogs :confused: Hey, what's going on - I thought we were dog-free? Well, it turns out that a sneaky new buyer agreed to abide by the coop rules, but then got in and changed her tune. Got a note from a quack shrink that she needed a companion-dog (therapy mutt?). Bldg says sorry, rules are rules - get a cat. F#cker gets her other neurotic friends to sue and after tens of thousands on legal fees the bldg caves and now we have all these dogs running around. The rule is they have to use the freight elevator. Of course these people bring the dog everywhere so they are constantly tying up the freight elevator and inconveniencing everyone trying to use the laundry, get to the garage, gym, etc (all the stuff you would legitimately use the freight for) :censored:

    From years of seeing you post and bring up NY type issues and mentioning your surroundings I have a pretty good idea where you live.

    I actually knew exactly where one poster lived based on the fit pics taken in the lobby of his building. Weird, I know.
