Trash


Trash. Usually not this organized as I have depicted here. I am SO sick of seeing people casually toss trash out of their windows while driving. I was behind a chick the other day driving into the Target parking lot as she whips a soda can out her window. Mind you she drove right past the front entrance where there was a garbage can she could have deposited it into. A few weeks ago we were driving and saw two boys/skateboarder/hoodlums/teenagers (sorry I was profiling) walking along side of the road and one of them tosses their empty water bottle in the weeds. Once again, across the road from them was a Super America gas station and the last time I checked they too have garbage cans.

The only thing I toss out the window is things the birds can use ie; floss (they can use it for their nest because I've seen them), sunflower seeds (they eat them) etc... Oh my, I just realized I have been known to toss out a piece of gum. Crap.... I guess I litter too.

Cowguy told me today he tosses trash "In" his window but that's a whole nuther blog!

Do you EVER toss anything out your car window?

I am totally on your side. I throw my gum out too. I always wondered if that was bad or not. Now I know! Don't tell us you floss your teeth while driving?!? That is almost worse than texting while driving! ;)

Happy Friday!

I would NEVER toss something out my car window!!! I was raised with the crying Native American commercial about littering - it really made a mark on me. Why can't people use keep a garbage sack in their car? Take your recyclables home ie water bottles and pop cans. I personally just HATE water bottles.

I'm not very green (name only) by any means, but I never throw trash outta da windown.

I once saw a man in a parked car throw a styrofoam cup out of his car while I was walking by. I picked it up and impaled it on his radio antenna without saying a word. Then I flipped him the bird before walking away.

I think he got it.

I use to throw beer bottles out the car window with the goal of hitting passing road signs when I was a younger. My skill level got so high, I decided to stop.

Oh - the trash toss is a big pet peeve of mine. I don't know if it laziness or lack of respect but it certainly is annoying and I have little tolerance for the slobs that do it.

...and what is it with smokers that think their filtered cigarette butt isn't garbage ? It takes more than a decade for mother nature to break down a butt !!

I remember reading somewhere that more than a TON of cigarette butts are discarded on the ground (worldwide) every day !

first time to your blog and wanted to say hi!!!! And I am with you I only throw something out if it is something that can actually be eaten by a critter or something (food I dropped while trying to eat it in the car). I never throw trash out!!!! I hate driving along and seeing trash laying everywhere!!! I also am not real fond of all the cigs you see laying everywhere..its like the land is one big ash tray!!!

I too only throw things out that can be eaten by animals. After I throw it out I start beating myself up thinking what happens if an animal gets hit trying to get to that. If you looked in my car you would see where my trash goes, I have to clean it every week.
Have a good weekend.

Remember the American Indian with the tear rolling his cheek??


Whoa, I thought we were wayyy past that. Maybe we need to bring him back.

I just read mnmom's comment...

I'll throw fruit because you can't get much more biodegradable than that, plus something will eat it. People who little should be forced to spend an hour buried in restaurant garbage. From a dumpster that's spent a few days in the sun.

I used to throw cigarettes out but I don't smoke anymore so, I don't even do that anymore.

Oops--I'm guilty-- I can't stop flickin cig. butts out my window, other than that... I'm cool.

One day in California--I was sitting in a parking lot waiting for a friend, a red Ferrari pulls in & the guy had the nerve to open his door & dump his ashtray right on the ground... 'rich-pig'

I admit I still throw the butts out the window. I know it's wrong but dammit I can't stop! Oh the humanity!

I personally believe that littering should be punished with severe beatings.
