I wonder if those who left their rubbish behind do the same thing in their homes.
I'm a neat person. I try not to spill things, and generally to minimise mess. I put garbage in garbage bins. I'm responsible with my waste, and I think most people are, but there are enough litterbugs to successfully deface the landscape, to disgrace the surface of our planet and to compel me to write this blog post of complaint against them.
What's so hard about carrying your rubbish to the nearest bin and putting it in? Is it really too much of a strain to carry an empty can or cup ten metres to the provided receptacle? And car tossers? Don't get me started. I've seen all sorts of crap thrown from car windows. I used to live on a main road and wake up every morning to a new collection of fast food wrappers, cigarette packets and empty bottles on my front lawn.
I could go on forever about this, in fact, I did just that in my first ever book (unfortunately and unbelievably unpublished) What's Your Problem? Anyway, let me finish by saying, that if you are a lazy slob at home, that's your choice, but if your laziness extends into the public sphere, you should reconsider your sloth and carelessness for the greater good. Do the right thing! See instruction on the right.
Do you have any examples of the laziness of litterbugs to share on Square Pegs?
