‘Trivial but Annoying’ (2015)


SSee the source imageome people let their cars fill up with trash–especially fast food wrappers, along with remnants of mush-burgers and about a third of the milk shake left in the oversized cup. Eventually they either have to get rid of the trash or get a new car.

So they dump their garbage into other people’s garbage cans.

Trivial But Annoying

I’ve never caught them doing it. You go out in the morning to bring in your garbage can, and it’s already full of stuff from somebody’s car.

And now, with everything but whatever’s absolutely Essential shut down, somehow the freakin’ leaf blowers are still going a mile a minute. I’m sorry to say St. Francis’ Church, across the street, is the biggest offender; but they have plenty of company.

We don’t have to live like this, and I don’t know why we want to.

  1. I’ve never had someone put trash in my trashcan, but I come across fast food bags on the streets and parking lots with contents spilled out and wonder: What the heck is wrong with these people? Are they haters of civilization? Fort Smith has an ongoing campaign where you get your name on a sign that indicates you are responsible for picking up the trash in that area – it works very well.
