Wait, there’s no Poop Fairy in Wellesley?
You think we moved here for the schools, parks, or bustling business areas? If there’s no poop fairy, why do our real estate taxes keep going up? We’re here for the amenities!
So far Town Hall has stepped around our questions about the status of the Poop Fairy. We’d be relieved to learn that such an important service might be back after the pandemic, but no word so far.
We demand answers, and so do neighbors in the Edmunds Road area of Wellesley, where a serial dropper of used dog poop bags has been messing up the place.
This isn’t an issue we’re unfamiliar with in our corner of town, where a full blue bag recently hung from a tree branch around the corner from our house. We thought maybe green and red bags were coming too for a sort of Christmas-y look, but no, it was a one-off.
The unsightly display inspired one neighbor to pen a poem shared on a local social media page that began:
People aren’t picking up as they should!
Things were handled differently on Edmunds Road, where a neighbor dodged any doggerel and got real (see below).
We encourage whoever is guilty of these heinous acts of inconsideration to please doo-doo the right thing.
