    Okay so walking out of the store in 80+degree weather there is a vehicle(suv) with a dog in the back windows up and doors locked....the dog was salivating and panting.....another lady walked by me and stared at me as if it were my dog and I went to my car (which is a MINI) This dog was a big dog....
    anywho she walked up to the vehicle was taking a picture of the plate and the dog and I asked her if she was going to call it in....
    she promptly got on the phone and called ot in to the local authorities mind you the dog had been in there for more than 30 minutes b/c she said that's how long she had been in the store and the vehicle was there when she got there.....So after she called it in i drove over to where she was parked...I asked her
    " are they sending out the police or animal control?"
    The vehicle wasn't even parked in the shade, windows all the way up. not running.
    She said the local police and then animal control.....I said okay and she said to me something I have never heard or done
    "I am going to Twitter shame this person right now!"

    Okay so I am of the younger generation I am 35, I am not computer illiterate, but I have never twitted, tweeted or ever plan on twirting, tweeting or twitting. But twitter shame?

    nanner nanner boo boo.....

    :shock: Could someone please explain to me how this works

    My only guess was that she was going run and tell mom. this lady was older than I was and i thought to myself, i'm glad she called the authorities but I'd be really mad if that were me she were "shaming" b/c isn't every body get to see this twitting thing?

    Owner should be happy if all she gets is Twitter shamed, and not a busted back window in the SUV.

    That is probably what I would have done.

    I second that one..... I wish I would have been there. I would have went into the store After calling the police and announced it over the loud speaker..... Then she/he really would have been shamed.

    LOL ,

    Those social networking sites are too funny. Have people lost the common sense to handle a problem without Twitter or Facebook?
    Is that what it has come too? Using the internet to shame and embarrass someone or a total stranger.
    We pay a tax for 911 service it is there for a reason.....Last time I heard Twitter isn't a 911 affiliate.
