WTF is with Litter?!

Posted 2009.07.21 15.51 in Pointless Blather, Uncategorized by Stephanie

Just driving around, it feels like there’s more and more trash in the streets, along the curbs. You stop at the red light an a highway off-ramp, and alongside the road it looks like a garbage truck rolled over and they forgot to clean up after they hauled the truck away. Fast food packaging, beverage containers, cigarette butts, etc. etc.

I just don’t understand how people think it’s acceptable to just throw their trash wherever they want. Do they believe that it magically disappears when they let go? At night the little garbage pixies emerge and creep around collecting the rubbish?

Or is it that they just don’t care – as long as it’s not in their car or on their yard – as long as it’s not their problem, they just don’t give a damn? I bet these are the same people who never use turn signals and who coast through stopsigns.

Whatever may be going through their minds (or may not be, as the case may be), it makes me think that on some level, at some phase in their being, they are completely undeveloped. Some part of them is still in its infancy, and like an infant, they crawl around pissing and shitting their trash over the landscape, oblivious to what they are doing. Someone else has to come by periodically to clean up their droppings, and we all just hope that someday these individuals will perhaps start to develop.
