For Stupid People Who Litter

Smart water drinkers are litterers, not “nerd, dork, geek, brainiac, know-it-all, smarty-pants, smart alek, bookworm, egghead, four-eyes, Einstein or being mistaken for the I.T. guy”. You need to update your website.

But What's For Dinner?

I took this photo of a paper plate between the sidewalk and Acklen Park Drive off West End Avenue. There was a dumpster close by, so I’m assuming that it either blew out of the dumpster or someone missed the dumpster when they tossed it. Or maybe some slob just dropped it on the ground and left it. It wasn’t used unless they ate cookies on it.

Ricki, Don’t Lose That Number

It’s cruel to drop someone’s business card on a public street. I don’t think Professor McLean intentionally threw his business card on the ground. A student probably “misplaced” it on the sidewalk. Anyway, the card was part of the trash I saw this week during a midday stroll.

Only if you’re selling a service, is it a good idea to litter your cards everywhere. But don’t expect me to call a litterer.

A Blizzard of Trash

I used to enjoy a DQ Blizzard many years ago before I learned how many calories they had and how many artificial ingredients they contained. If this was a cherry-flavored Blizzard, it had 590 calories; if it had been a strawberry cheesecake Blizzard, it contained 700 calories. That’s why someone chose to trash it on the brick wall along West End Avenue recently.

Litter or Food for Ants?

This pizza crust doesn’t bother me too much as litter. When I found it in the grass along West End Avenue, ants were picnicking on it. Generally, we should never feed wild animals, as they learn to be dependent upon humans for food. Humans are not dependable food sources.

If the pizza crust was nestled in a styrofoam container, that definitely would be litter.

The Top and Bottom of Trash

The Top of TrashThe bottom of litter

As I was out walking, I found the top of a shoebox tossed in the grass. About 25 feet away, I found the bottom of the shoebox. How lazy! It’s recycleable cardboard.
