I’ll be the first to admit I can be annoying. The other day it was on display as I did this… (and yes, I have a dash cam, I love it!)
There are probably multiple reasons I did this, but for sure one is because I can’t stand when people are lazy especially when it results in litter. Don’t even get me started on cigarettes tossed out of car windows. <insert VERY annoyed emoji>
Today’s American society is so volatile. I have toned down how I react to bad drivers (like this one or this story where a guy pointed a gun at me), but in an instance like the one above in the McDonald’s drive-through, a cooler head might have been a better idea for me. I could’ve just picked up the litter and tossed it into a can myself. So I’m thankful this encounter didn’t end badly, and maybe the silver lining is that this guy won’t litter again. I know that’s probably just wishful thinking but I rather be wishful than what I am most of the time– cynical about others laziness.
Be a good sport and keep your area clean, please! If everyone was lazy like this guy, our beautiful world will just turn into a smelly trash heap.
