    Is it really that hard to carry your trash to the next garbage can? Granted, I have littered.  I'm guilty of tossing stuff out my car window as I drove.  I've been known to drop my candy wrappers on the ground.I don't anymore.In fact, I usually have a sack in my pocket that I...

    My Dc Adventure-oops!

    It's Disgusting And Inconsiderate

    Littering is both disgusting and inconsiderate. It doesn’t take much for a person to locate a disposal bin and put their trash there or even hold onto their trash until they can dispose of it properly. It’s inconsiderate to me because we all share this world and not everyone...

    Lazy and Disgusting Actions

    We already have garbage dumps overflowing with crap that could be recycled as it is. How difficult is it to throw something in a trash can?

    The World Is Not Your Ash Tray!

    It always bothers me when smokers throw their cigarettes on the ground.  They think the world is theirs to trash, but it is not their ash tray!  The world belongs to all of us!

    From Inside The Belly Of The Beast

    I live in Brooklyn, New York. You can't imagine how hard it is to live in a big city and watch people destroy the earth one drop at a time. I've even come close to blows with my own mother over this. Almost every time I'm in her car with her she throws something out the window. I...

    It Enrages Me

    Littering is my top pet-peeve. It is disgusting, selfish, self-centered behavior and lazy. Take the trash home with you and dispose of it or wait to you do get to a trash bin. Litterbugs will be the first to complain about how bad an area looks without ever realizing how...

    So Annoying

    I don't know why anyone feels that it is okay to throw your trash out the window.  Is it really that inconvenient to have that bag of Mc Donald's in your car until you can find a trash can?  I don't allow anyone to throw anything out the window of my car.  If...

    If it's biodegradable,

    fine. (I would prefer people throw away larger biodegradable items in the trash still.) But I don't particularly like seeing cans and bottles littering ditches.

    There's flippin' trash cans - USE THEM.  If there isn't one then use your pocket.  If you don't have a pocket, then hold it until you FIND a trash can.

    An Altercation On Princes Street

    I was on Princes Street a couple of months ago, when I saw this bloke casually take a final sip from his cup of coffee, then casually discard his cup. That sort of thing enrages me. One minute the cup has value and the next minute it has none. The hand opens, the cup drops and...

    I HATE it. I feel like slapping every idiot.

    The worst is that they complain that the city is dirty and blame in solely on the municipality. Yes, they don't do their job properly but IT STARTS WITH PEOPLE NOT FUDGING LITTERING GOD FUDGING DAMN IT.

    No Need

    There's just no need for it where I live as there are plenty of public bins around. Dog mess is a particular problem in the town and it really annoys me, anyone who's ever had to clean dog poo out the tread of a child's, or anyones, trainer will sympathise I'm sure. I have had...
