Today on my way home I was sitting on the bus and looking out the window. As we were going along I saw a woman lift her hand and throw an empty bottle of something or other onto the ground by where she was walking. I have never seen such a blatant act of littering, and I was kind of shocked and angry. I have to say it. I have no respect for people who litter intentionally. I actually think they are bad people.
And while we’re on the subject of litter, this morning I witnessed another thing that horrified me. Across the road from my house there were two men and a leaf blower. They were blowing all the fallen leaves into a pile and then putting them into a black rubbish bag. My city pays people to clean up and dispose of the best part of my favourite season.
Unless they love leaves as much as I do and they were keeping them. Which I find somewhat unlikely.
