Dog owners who don’t clean up after their pets are far more annoying to Danes than tax cheats and people who have affairs.

A massive 91 percent of the 1,207 participants in a new Urban/Gallup survey said they were put off by dog doo. In comparison, only about half reacted negatively towards infidelity in their circle of friends or hearing about a new sweetheart’s former sex partners.

According to Johannes Andersen, a social scientist at Aalborg University, the survey results indicate a clear split in people’s tolerance threshold.

“We’re normally quite understanding when it comes to how other people lead their lives,” he said. “But as soon as anyone interferes with our personal choices, we react a lot more strongly.”

He said that although moonlighting was far more damaging to the economy than dog doo, moonlighting was an abstract problem that people had a harder time relating too.
