You don’t crap where you eat. Everyone knows that. It’s the oldest rule in the book. No one ever said anything about literally crapping where you live and jog every day though.
Maybe that’s what inspired the female runner who has already been dubbed the “the mad pooper” in the US. According to The Washington Post, Colorado Springs resident Cathy Budde was enjoying a quiet afternoon with her kids at home when the pooper struck.
Budde’s children were the first to spot her and quickly ran inside to alert their mother. “They are like, ‘There’s a lady taking a poop!’ So I come outside, and I’m like … ‘are you serious?’ ” she told KKTV.
Budde eventually confronted the mystery woman over her actions, asking, “Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?”
“Yeah, sorry,” she replied, clearly embarrassed. You might have thought that would be the end of it. That the woman involved would be so embarrassed by what happened that she would never step foot in the neighbourhood again. But you would be wrong.
In the weeks since that first confrontation, Budde has continued to find poo, alongside several dirty used napkins just outside her house. It’s happened countless times now but Budde is closing in on the identity of the mystery pooper, having taken a picture of the woman at the centre of this shitty behaviour.
Described as a brunette woman, in a gray tank top and shorts, Budde has put up fliers asking for help from neighbours and has even contacted the police, while her kids have taken to calling the mystery woman “The mad pooper.”
The strangest twist in the whole tale arguably comes with the knowledge that the area is littered with public restrooms, including one across from Budde’s house, which leads her to only one conclusion.
“This is intentional,” she told KKTV. “I put a sign on the wall that’s like ‘please, I’m begging you, please stop,’” Budde said. “She ran by it like 15 times yesterday, and she still pooped.”
The plot thickens. Though this isn’t the first poo-related story of woe to come out of the US. Last year, loaded reported on the US news reporter who was busted defecating on the front lawn of a house while out on a broadcast.
He lost his job over the incident but the repurcussions could be far worse for the “Mad Pooper”.
