A sight that left me speechless

I've seen this once before but something about it this time shocked me and left me speechless. What did I see? A huge mass of human feces just sitting mid-staircase off 7th/Market off Civic Center Station. I've seen human feces near there before but never this large, this evident, and this exposed! I see and smell urine in the area almost daily but this mass was just a shocker.

I hope it's gone by the time I use those stairs later today. If not, I don't even want to imagine the swarm of flies and whatever else that are living off the pile.

Oh man I feel for you. How can you tell the difference between human and dog feces? I sure can't.

Lovely...guess better in the station than on a car, as I know that happened yesterday on a train going to Millbrae. The poop was cleaned up by end of line system service and the car remained in service. But there have been times that car/train would be pulled from service (for good reason) in order to clean the mess before returning the car/train to service.

In the case of the station, I sure hope a patron pointed it out to the station agent or the agent took it upon themselves (if they saw it) and got it cleaned up.

Isn't that all part of Gavin's mission to encourage all the homeless people of the world to come to San Francisco? Maybe FecesMeters(tm) will address the problem ...

Haha, Rafael, that's not something I want to elaborate on here in case it's too graphic for some but let's just say I have a dog, am a huge dog lover, and frequent dog parks big and small. I should know the difference :)

I've seen this before -- in San Francisco. Someone dropped a turd on a friend's doorstep. Welcome home! One thing that gave it away as a product of man and not dog was the dirty TP. Nice...
