Having the very very nice, very old, very english as a second language Japanese neighbor come out and talk to me immediately after yelling "MIKA DON'T EAT THE CAT POOP, DAMMIT!" was...good... I suppose. Especially since he was still being nice after she did the hackles up, growling, loud "big dog voice" bark at him repeatedly.
Now there is a relationship in place for when she decides to bark at him from the window when he's out in his garden this spring.
Though in a way it might have been more satisfying to yell "ROKUSABARO MICHIBA DON'T EAT THE CAT POOP, DAMMIT!" and would probably have the same effect on the neighbor and the dog.
