It’s Gotta be Bad to Take These Measures

I found this up in Brightwood. I respect the folks who put this out there because it must be a pain to empty. But I still think it’s sad that it is necessary, otherwise folks would just litter.

On a related matter, I was sitting on my porch drinking a beer with a neighbor when a car pulled up and was idling next to my house. The woman driving the car unwrapped a cd cover, opened her door and just threw the garbage on the street. Obviously this isn’t a mortal sin but it still really bothered me. I was staring at the car in disbelief. I was debating whether to knock on her window or do nothing. In the end I simply walked over very deliberately and picked up the trash and sorta shook it before putting it in my pocket. I’m a firm believer of picking battles and I think I was able to make my point without making a scene. Still very frustrating though…
