Who leaves a 4' foot fish, still alive, gasping for air out in a communal driveway? My neighbors, that's who. They fail at life in so many ways, this is but one.

And they left that fish alone. If you are going to jab hooks in the mouth of a fish, transport him in water all the way back home, just to let him asphyxiate on dry land by himself, then you suck, but at the very least, you damn well better be there for his final moments. Also, I do not like you very much. I mean, all the other stuff is awful - the hook, the pain, the transportation.

But there is something achingly painful about leaving a fish to die alone on asphalt. It made my heart sad.

Initially, I was flummoxed - I mean, why is there a fish there?

I'm guessing he had been out there awhile, his last seconds were upon him. Or her. There was not anything I could do - I would say he died 30-45 seconds after I came home.

To be honest, I am not sure what I would have done had I found him immediately after they took him out of the chest of water. It isn't illegal. And they were not going to take him back. I might have yelled at them, I don't know.

It's sad to feel helpless.
