Uptight Dog Walkers Refuse Service

The owners of a dog-walking service in Missouri, who are clearly wound way too tight for living on this planet, have refused to serve a long-time customer because she shared that picture on Facebook of a girl selling Girl Scout cookies in front of a marijuana dispensary.

It all started when Tricia Moyer, a mother of two and a Girl Scout troop leader, thought the idea of a thirteen-year-old with the business sense to sell delicious Thin Mints outside of a marijuana dispensary was funny. So she did what tens of thousands of other Americans did and shared a photo on Facebook.

Tricia didn’t realize that the owners of her dog-walking service — Pack Leader, Plus Inc. — are devout Christians who don’t believe there was anything funny about it at all.

“[We] were upset by the pic with the Girls Scouts selling cookies outside of a government-funded drug house because they knew a bunch of whacked-out dope fiends would buy a bunch of cookies,” said Tom Ziegler, co-owner of Pack Leader, Plus, told the Moyers in an e-mail. “We think this is appalling and not funny or cute.”

And so the Zieglers decided to end their business relationship with the Moyers.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy,” Tom Ziegler tells us. “We don’t tolerate any drug users or people who think drugs are OK. Just like we wouldn’t tolerate child molesters or rapists, we don’t tolerate drugs.”

Oh yes, because smoking a joint is just like rape and child molestation. What are you, fucking high? The irony here is that these people are more badly in need of smoking a joint than anyone I’ve ever seen. Lighten up, Francis.

    I doubt if there is enough weed on the planet to get these sphincters to relax. Waste of good weed. They would probably just get all paranoid and shit anyway.

  2. edmundog says

    Ridiculous, yes, but I give them credit for use of the term “whacked-out dope fiends.”

    I’m flashing on a Robin Williams’ line from Good Morning Vietnam.

    I’m reminded of the gorgeous line by George Carlin:

    Why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn’t want to fuck in the first place?

    There girl certainly deserves some kind of business or marketing badge. She picked the perfect location.

    @6/7: the million dog walk?

    Dog walkers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your leashes.

    Ah, yes, devout Christians, the ones who believe that finding a book in the rubble of an explosion that flattened two buildings, killed 8 people, and injured dozens, is a sign of God’s protection.

    They truly have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to reality.

    Tom Ziegler tells us. “We don’t tolerate any drug users or people who think drugs are OK.

    So they are not just against people that participate in behavior they think is wrong, they are against people that have a different opinion about behavior they disapprove. But it is even more ridiculous than that, Tricia Moyer didn’t even promote drug use, she celebrated taking business advantage of the eating habits of marijuana users.

    If they take this to its logical conclusion they will shrink their customer base to practically nil. I hope they have the courage of their convictions and vet all of their customers to make sure they are not letting any others get away with the sin of disagreeing with their ideas of moral behavior. I also hope they have the courage to shut down their business when they find that have no more customers that agree completely with everything they believe.

    I suggest using a dog-shaped cookie cutter…

    Cthulhu, more xians who don’t know their own religion. Xianity is just a billions of sockpuppet gods, created in people’s heads. No wonder they never agree on anything.

    1. Where in the bible does it say Though Shalt Not Smoke Marijuana? I missed that part.

    2. Certainly, the bible has no problem with alcohol. Drinking wine was an everyday activity back then.

    3. There might be arguments against marijuana but they don’t have anything to do with the bible or xianity.

    Unless your sockpuppet god says that people enjoying themselves on earth is a huge sin or something.

  12. raven says

    BTW, since this was Missouri, this must have been a medical marijuana dispensary.

    Cannabis has a lot of legitimate medical uses and in fact, the drug is an approved pharmaceutical, Marinol.

    The only cannabis users I know are middle class Boomer age and older people with serious chronic medical conditions that find the drug quite helpful.

    These dog walkers didn’t think it through very far. It’s a fundie xian thing.

  13. blf says

    Where in the bible does it say Though Shalt Not Smoke Marijuana?

    Same verse where it says “Thou shall keep slaves, not permit the all thoust deem heathens to live unmolested, own guns to shootest those heathens, never smoke the weed nor drinke the caffine or wine, and thou must and shall permit the priests to rape children.” In the Preachings of Yet Moar Made-Up Fantasies, which is invisible and undetectable except to the blessed.

    a thirteen-year-old with the business sense to sell delicious Thin Mints outside of a marijuana dispensary…

    In other words, she picked a random block on Colfax.

  15. says

    “Let’s move to the other side of the street, Henry.”
    “Why, Margaret?”
    “Henry! Don’t you see that whacked-out dope fiend?”
    “That’s Bill, dear. I golf with him on Saturdays. He goes to our church. His grandson is on our son’s soccer team.”
    “Well, Henry, nothing good can come from that. I don’t like you hanging out with that type. We’re putting an end to that, immediately. And if I ever catch you shooting up the marihuana, I’m leaving you, Henry.”
    “Yes, dear.”

    @ 20 The guy with the dog avatar and dog-centric screen-name dislikes dogs. Hmmm…go figure.

  18. anubisprime says

    Well their god certainly pulled out all the stops on their education and the subsequent benefits from it.

    And one can see these bozo’s went to the very top of the pile, as ordained by their god…
    Dog walkers will inherit the earth maybe…not holding the breath though!

    Are they aware that their charges are unlikely to go to heaven, or does that depend on which particular jeebus cult you ask?

    They are so confused!

  19. lorn says

    Seems to me that judgment of who you want to deal with goes both ways. I’ve never use a dog walking service but, as I understand it, the dog walker, as part of the job, has access to my home. Do I want to have my home open and completely unprotected in the presence of a hyper-judgmental scold with delusions of moral superiority?

    In my, albeit limited, experience moralizers tend to be snoops. Having a maliciously hyper-critical individual rifling through my personal effects is, outside the violation of space and home, simply insulting. Given that it has been repeatedly shown that people can be moral without religion I think I would find a more compatible dog walking service.

    I also, it has become something of a reflex now, fully expect that, as with any moralizers, that given time a revelation will emerge about them that will make smoking a little dope seem trivial.

    “We don’t tolerate any drug users or people who think drugs are OK. Just like we wouldn’t tolerate child molesters or rapists, we don’t tolerate drugs.”

    One of these things is not like the others, but this is the whole problem with authoritarians. They can’t figure out how to reason about morality based on harm and are incredulous that anyone can apply such a standard and reason their way through ethical questions, because they can only imagine morality as a boot stamping on a face.

    These people should be slammed for trivializing rape and child molestation by pretending that it belongs on a list with smoking pot.

    Could they really show any evidence that drugs actually are so bad and harmful, and if so, which drugs?

    I dislike cats. Is it cool to joke about feeding them poison-laced tuna? :(

    @28;

    I don’t know if it’s the same guy but the fact that he’s the co-owner and yet his photo/bio are not on the website makes me think he might be. If that’s the case he’s apparently re-married.

  23. says

    I did a little more googling on the St. Louis Metro Police. The girl scout is lucky that they didn’t just shoot her and call it justifiable use of deadly force. What a fucked-up place to live.

    whacked-out dope fiends

    Seriously? Ziegler actually used the term “whacked-out dope fiends?” Tom Ziegler, co-owner of Pack Leader, Plus, and straight from Central Casting: Early 1970s Hard-Boiled Cop Movie Division, evidently.

    C’mon . . . that part of the story . . . surely, that’s an editor with a sense of humor. Right? Right? Whacked-out dope fiends? Really?

    “Whacked-out dope fiends.” Oh, my sides!

    Still learning,

    Agreed. Somewhere there are big-business snack-food executives thinking, “Why the hell didn’t we think of that?”

    .
    As a Southern Baptist kid I was assured that the first miracle of Jesus ben Yahweh was turning water into grape juice. That would have the bible say this:

    John 2:
    1 On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3 When the grape juice was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more grape juice.”
    .
    4 “Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
    .
    5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
    .
    6 Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
    .
    8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”
    .
    They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into grape juice. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice grape juice first and then the cheaper grape juice after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
    .
    11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
    .
    These folks call themselves bible believers. Heh.

    “They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into grape juice.”

    FSM, the head Pastafarian would have turned it into a nice Bolognese or maybe an asskickin’ putanesca while the Rastafarians would be lookin’ for him to change tobacco into some righteous gange.
