Yeah.  The guy just looks angry, and while you understand his reasons, you know that angry people tend to take their issues out on innocent bystanders.  It might be prudent to avoid that.
You duck into an alley, smoothly avoiding the man altogether.  You set off, enjoying the scent of the spring flowers that grow in a nearby garden.  You gaze at the beautiful pinks, yellows, blues, and oranges.  Maybe you should have planted a garden this year.  Sure, you’ve never had much of a green thumb, but the view would be nice.
You’re so caught up in admiring the beauty that you don’t notice anything in your path until you feel the telltale squish beneath your shoe.
The smell hits you next.
You look down and shudder.  The neighbor’s dog has been relieving itself outside the confines of their yard again.  You feel annoyance rise within you, but you quickly see that it could have been worse.  He could have crapped on your front stoop like he did last Tuesday.
