A**hats who litter

Ok, I am going to go on a rant, that has been beaten to death, but I am going to say it anyway.  I have started walking in the mornings to try and maintain this illusion of health that I am.  Most mornings I drag my 11 year old with me, (he will get his own post later on) and one of the three dogs, depending on which route I choose to take.  We walk in our neighborhood, which is a larger one in our fair city of Winston Salem.

With that stage set, I have found that my nemesis on the walks is glass.  I have never seen so many glass bottles tossed out of car windows into the gutters.  Shattered glass of all colors.  Beer bottles, wine bottles.  Get a clue people.  There is more glass tossed out on my 2-3 mile trail than any other garbage combined.  Luckily I have yet to need to make a flying trip to the vet to sew up a dog paw, but jeez people get a clue.  Is your precious car too good for the beer bottle you just downed?  Give me a break.  It makes our beautiful city look like crap, and is dangerous.  Give a damn about places.  You live here too.

    Thank you! I completely agree with this. I also have great disdain for people who leave steaming piles of dog poo on the sidewalk for others to pick up.

      Yeah, thats just not responsible pet ownership. I know with our three, when we walk we go prepared to remove their litter! The old saying of leave a place better than how you found it is true!

    I totally agree with you! I hate the rubbish we pass each day. When I see someone litter it drives me insane.

    On a happier note, thank you for adding me to your blog roll. I am honored. :)
