Litterbug

Okay, so here is one of my pet peeves...littering. I can't stand it! I can't stand when I see people do it! To me, it is so rude and I just don't understand why people have to dump their garbage on the ground instead of holding on to it until they get to a garbage can. This time of year I especially start to notice all of the litter on the streets. Kids must think that because it is Halloween it gives them the right to throw their candy wrappers all over the streets and on the grass. I can not believe all of the candy wrappers I see when I am running. I have never been able to litter. Even when I was little, I always felt so guilty about it. One time I remember I threw something on the ground and I felt so bad that I went back and picked it up.
Anyway, just thought I would get on my soap box for the day!

OK, along those same lines, you know what annoys me? When full-grown adults throw cigarette butts out their windows. I saw a woman do it today and I was like JUST USE THE ASHTRAY IN YOUR CAR!!!

I'm right there with you and am not above pointing out to people that they "dropped" their trash and giving it back to them if I see them do it. This embarasses my husband sometimes, but apparently they didn't learn that lesson growing up. It's never too late to learn, right?

That is great Andrea! Good for you. Have you ever gotten a crusty look or some "choice" words back?

Also, I secretly can't wait until I see someone litter and then I can call 1-800-litter1 on them and get them busted. I wonder what happens to them. Do they get a fine? What if they deny it? There is no proof. Hmmmm....
