Litterbug!

What do you guys do when you see a litterbug? Today I was standing at the bus stop, and I watched a woman unwrap a package of mints, and drop all the wrapper trash on the ground. Then she cleaned out her purse, tossing receipts into the wind. I wanted to point out there was a trash can about 10 feet from where she was sitting, but I didn't. I let her litter and then I didn't pick up the trash, either.

What would my readers do?

I always WANT to say something but I'm too chicken. I just mutter various grumps under my breath. Cigarette butts are the other thing that really annoys me. Why do people think that disposing of their butts down the storm drains is an ok thing to do?

What is with people, eh?

I totally would have pointed out the garbage. But then, I have a big mouth. I'm pretty famous for my death-rays also. They're potent. One look, and she would have been on her knees, picking up her trash. Take that!

In this instance, I would like to be more like Jamie, but I think I'm more like Paisley. I tried the death-ray stare on her but to no avail. And cigarette butts annoy me too! They could start fires!

I'm with Paisley and Genevieve. I'm a chicken and wouldn't have said anything. I may have picked up the litter though, in way to make sure the woman saw me, if possible. Sort my passive aggressive nature.

oh, she would have totally seen me if I had done that! (which is an excellent idea, btw) she dropped the wrappers right at her feet.
