Capecodonline.com – An incident of human defecation on July 8 at the town transfer station’s “Swap Shop” has closed it for now, until volunteers can be found to man the shop, according to town officials.
The building was cleaned on July 10, said Health Agent Hillary Lemos and Department of Public Works Director Mark Vincent.
The swap shop, which is typically unmanned, is for Wellfleet residents only to exchange reusable household items. The shop hours are 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily during the summer.
There are no public restrooms at the transfer station but someone can use the employee restroom if needed, Lemos said Wednesday.
Town staff declined to say specifically what the incident was except to refer to it as “vandalism,” but Board of Selectmen member John Morrissey said Thursday it was his understanding that the incident was human defecation.
I don’t understand the problem here. This is a swap shop, isn’t the whole point that if you have some shit you don’t need anymore, you leave it there? Isn’t poop the epitome of stuff you no longer have any use for? This seems like an honest mistake to me, kinda like when George Costanzas boss asked if he had sex with the cleaning lady on his desk and his response was “Was that wrong? Should I not have done that?”.
The obvious solution here is for them to put up some signs specifying exactly what you can’t swap there. I have a recommendation…
Feel free to take some stuff, but please refrain from taking a shit. – THANK YOUFacebook: The Real Cape
