Why do they do "IT"?


Whilst awaiting my grandson,in a very large car park which seviced numerous outlets.
In the space of some 15 minutes I was able too observe,no less than 4 persons dropping /throwing their litter/Mac#######
Containers etc. onto the ground or into the shrubs surounding the car park.
Were there any waste /litter bins I hear you mutter,
I was able too count 6, without leaving my car.

" Am I just a grumpy old man?"
If Yes !
STOP THE WORLD! I want to get off.

No your not a grumpy old man. Dropping litter really annoys me too you see people throw litter on the floor when there is a bin just a few feet away. They are just lazy

Re: Why do they do "IT"?

This is one of my pet peeves too ludite. There just is no excuse at all. I would be devastated if my son were to drop litter. I hope I've brought him up better than that.

Sorry Ludite but it doesn't surprise me. When I was younger I always got into a punch up in Preston when I went for a night out.

Hi,

I hoped that we all have, Though it beggars the question,
" Why oh, why do they do it?"

Re: Why do they do "IT"?

Just a sympton of todays world - to lazy to get out of the car and put their rubbish in the bin.

Comes from having everything done for them at home and the not in my back garden syndrome.

My kids are always told to put their rubbish in bins and if they are caught dropping it they are made to pick it up.

As it's going to be everywhere, might at least get some use out of it. Make the driver responsible.

John,

Youre right it is more a sympton of the Uk than anywhere else.

I have just come back from Chicage and the place was spotless (At least the part I was in).

The attitude in this country is someone else will sort out my mess.

Hi,
Emgee
" Not the poor driver again?"
I know I sound sad,but if we cannot keep our streets clean,what hope is there for the future,when the tax on waste comes into effect?
Its pouring down here at the moment,and just thinking of those sodden waste litter etc,
Really gets me Upset.
John.

Hi,SPPalfa,
I tend too agree with you here,
I have great fear,knowing my nature that one day,I shall end up in a situation , not to my liking ,after I have cofronted one of these litter louts,
For at some stage my common sense will fail me.
You never know ,may even make the press,
Grumpy old man, takes on the litter bugs, and is well and truely bitten.

Trouble is in this country there will be one of two outcomes, neither will result in anything good for yourself.

You will either get seriously injured or worse and the second possibility is that you will be prosecuted by the plod squad for attempting to tackle these mindless morons.
