    Default Why do people litter??

    Why do people litter??

    I take my little dog on two or three walks a day. We either go to the boat launch or to the north side of the lake so she can do her business. I pick up garbage almost every single day at the public boat launch. Pop cans, beer cans, lunch stuff, emptied ash trays etc etc. One day I went back with a plastic bag because there was broken glass all over the side of the road.

    If we walk to the north side of the lake I find pop cans in the bushes all along the road. It never fails. They must just drive along and chuck stuff out the window.

    WTF.....they cant wait to get to a garbage can.

    I never litter!!!

    And thats about what its worth.

    The ONLY time I will ever litter is when I am about to either kick a dog, or pop a little kids balloon.

    I think it goes beyond lazy to a general disrespect. I know it pisses me off immensely. I was doing some yard work one day years ago & this dude drives down my street, rolls his window down & tosses an empty cig pack on the street right in front of my house. I canít even fathom what would make somebody w/ enough sense to operate a motor vehicle do something so brazenly stupid & disrespectful. Iím glad for him & me both that all I had in hand was a weed eater Ďcause I went nuckiní futs psycho screaming & yelling for him to stop, which he did. I then tell idiot-boy who has his last smoke between his lips to go back & pick up the trash I just saw him toss. He gives me a look like he doesnít know what Iím talking about so I point to the pack still in the street & I can see the light bulb (dim as it may be) come on in his knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing head. So he picked it up & drove off. Iím sure he probably tossed it right back out though once he got out of eyesight.

    Only slightly less chapping to my ass is the neighbor who blows his leaves out into the street in front of my house so when the wind blows they come into my yard, not his.

    IF, BY SOME STRANGE CHANCE YOUíRE READING THIS, YES IT PISSES ME OFF.

    But thatís another gripe for another day.

    Man that is one of my biggest pet peeves is seeing people do it or seeing the result of it. Even the assholes that flick cigarette butts out their windows. I'll never forget back in 95 I was traveling up Route 1 from Cabo to Seattle and when I hit Northern Cali, and especially Oregon how clean it was. No litter on the side of the roads or in any of the walking trails I was on. It was just beautiful.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    my family lives in a very rural area...down a dirt road about 5 miles back in the woods. People use to love to drive back there and throw out trash. My dad started digging through it. He'd find a name and address, and drop it back off in their yard....

    Funny this should be brought up. I regularly travel on State Road 100 and they just opened a strip mall that happens to have a new McDonalds in it. Before the place opened, this area was neat as a pin, now all you see are McDonalds cups and wrappers lining the road. Pretty disgusting.
