Can't We All Just Get Along?

Something I've noticed since moving back into the city is the crazy drivers and how some people expect others to pick up after them.

What l mean is, they think nothing of firing their garbage out of their car in a parking lot,driving down a highway, knowing, expecting someone to come and pick it up for them.  When, only 30 feet away, in the same parking lot, there is a garbage can waiting for their garbage.

Garbage cans are all around us, gas stations, outside of almost every store, there really is no need to throw your crap on the ground.  It looks bad, it's not good for the wildlife, and it's just not necessary.

I don't know about Men's restrooms, but in the Ladies, do you have to be so gross?  Let's all pretend that it's our home's bathroom that we are using, then there won't be a problem, right?   

Also, l simple "Please, or Thank You" goes a long way.

Okay....l'm climbing off of my soapbox.  Cheers!!

  1. Do you think it's a generational thing? We (DOB 1953) were bombarded with anti-littering messages. Kids now (Gen Y?, Z? AA?) bombard their parents with anti-smoking propaganda (quite rightly IMO, the little Hitler Jugend!). Will the yearning for a cleaner environment die with those of us who remember a weeping indigen, Three Mile Island, Love Canal.
    Let us pray not.
