Are you a litterbug?
People like this really upset me - you know the type, don't you? The kind of fellow citizen who likes to behave as if they were alone in the world.
The kind of person who considers only themself. The kind that really irritates me - the litterbug!
I have always been an advocate of not littering and it never ceases to amaze me that people will throw their dirty napkins and candy wrappers out the window of their car instead of saving them to put in a trash can.
Is holding off until you get to your next destination to unload your personal garbage dump too much to ask?
I guarantee that there will be a trash can waiting to accommodate you.
In a world where there are so many environmental problems in which the average person can rarely make a difference, why make it worse by landscaping our highways with litter?
Personally, I look at littering as selfish behavior. Only a person with no regard for the feelings and betterment of others would throw trash on the streets. This isn't just their world ... it's OUR world.
On most days the inside of my car looks like a tornado blew through it, but the empty coffee cups and month-old newspapers in the back seat don't bother me a bit.
I'd much rather have my car be a victim to my laziness than the world my children will someday grow up in.
Think twice before you litter. Your decision not to can make a difference.
