Rant #58: Pigeons Like My Car
This has become a daily routine.
I wake up, eat breakfast, take a shower, get dressed, and eventually go to my car, whether to drive to work or to drive on the weekend.
And what do I find on my car?
This seems to happen each and every day. Sometimes it's a lot, sometimes it's just a sprinkle, but seemingly each and every day birds leave their nastiness on my car.
The way our street is aligned, I have to park under a tree. I think that is the problem. Birds look at trees like humans look at water closets--one is in view, and you have to go.
Anyway, the good thing today is that it is raining, and without effort on my part, it should be gone by the time I get out of work.
However, I have noticed that sometimes, I get the industrial strength kind, and it doesn't come off so easily.
Well, less outlawing the rights of pigeons to fly near my car, what can I do? Is there pigeon repellant that you can spray on cars so that birds stay away? Should I bag my car, and thus the crap will be on the bag, not on the car?
I can't park anywhere else, as our street is full of cars.
I guess I am stuck with this crap, day in and day out.
At least my dog craps on the ground, and I can easily pick it up.
Birds should learn to do the same.
