The other day I was driving along, minding my own business. I was on the on-ramp for the interstate when the pick-up truck in front of me tossed a to-go cup out the window. I was incensed. I see trash along the road all the time but this time I saw someone make a conscious decision to roll down their window and toss their garbage into the grassy median. Apparently the cup holder in their console wasn’t good and enough they couldn’t wait until their next stop to toss the cup in a trash can. They were finished and just had to get that cup out of their sight.
I couldn’t believe it. What in the world would make someone think that was okay? Even if someone has no regard for nature or refuses to buy into the idea of treating our environment with care or thinks recycling is a hoax why in the world would they still think that tossing trash out the window is an acceptable practice? It’s not like the trash is going to take over the cab of their truck. There are trash cans at every stop…the gas station, beside the door going into McDonalds, as you drive away from Sonic, inside their own house for crying out loud. The sad thing is a lot of people think the road is a trash can. Just look at the gutters next time you go somewhere.
It makes me sad and I just don’t get it.
