Today, I fucked up... by not stepping in dog shit
This happened a few weeks back and I’m still embarrassed by it.
Now I must set the picture of where I live. A quiet rural area where many of the residents are the kind to own a Range Rover, tweed clothing and a dog. This area also has nice scenic walks near a canal.
Every day i take the same route to work, it’s a short 30 min walk along said canal and I pass by these jolly folk walking their dogs every morning.
Sadly these people let their dogs create a mess and some don’t clean it up. So on my way to work I was reading Reddit and paying no attention to the path. At a quick glance I noticed some dog shit I was about to step on. Without being aware of my surroundings I quickly moved to the right. Only to fall in the canal!!!
One dog walker saw me and came to the rescue. Pretty embarrassing as it was my neighbour. I had to go home and ended up late for work. Lucky my boss saw the funny side.
I’m much more careful where I walk now. Probably would have been easier to step in the shit.
