Have you ever noticed how many litterbugs there are out there? If its not dog poop, then its cigarettes or matches flying out of the car window at 75 miles an hour on the Interstate. I am seriously thinking about proposing a rule to my HOA mandating that everyone’s garbage pail has to have a lid that is attached. When the wind blows around here, the newspapers and coupon inserts, and empty granola boxes, and empty cans of soda make a real mess of things.
So. What got me started on this wonderful subject, you ask? I was on my way to donate (recycle) some things at the thrift store this morning. In front of me are two women in an SUV smoking away with the windows of the vehicle open. I am annoyed that stinky cigarette smoke is filling my car. If that’s not enough, the light turns green, and they both flick their lit cigarettes out the window … to join a growing pile of butts lining the curb. As they turned, I noticed a business decal on the side of the van. So – to the two ladies driving that silvery blue SUV with the “Irrigation Specialists” logo on the side in Herndon, Virginia today at about 11:00 a.m. — You are the litterbug piggies of the day.
A little while later, I came across the same phenomenon. Two women smoking, the light changes, they flick the cigarettes out the window. I came to the conclusion that they probably were ditching the cigs because they had to call someone on their cellphone while they were driving and couldn’t do all three things (drive, smoke and talk on the cellphone). You two are Litterbug Piggy Runners Up of the Day.
Now. To the idiots that live around me. I have two large dogs that poop large piles on a daily basis. Sometimes, twice a day! And, I PICK IT UP. I don’t take my dogs out unless I have a couple of poop bags in my pocket. I have them stashed in my car. I keep them under the sink and in my dog-walking-cold-weather-coat. How hard is it for you IDIOTS to pick up your dog’s poop? If it smells, don’t breathe.
