Celebrating an anniversary is not always a wonderfully good thing; especially when said yearly event is neither fun nor anticipated. It complicates things further when said unwanted event's time frame coincides with another not so negative event.
Case in point- my delightful spouse Lil Red questions why my yearly anti-litter campaign falls on the same week as our anniversary of wedlock; both of which are in their 6th year. Is it just ironic coincidence that we celebrate our marriage on the same week that I reference an abundance of trash? No, 'tis not! You see my wife is the beautifullest girl in the world to me and deserves a world as beautiful as she. And it shall nary reach its necessary levels of beatification, till we pick up litter across our great nation. There, compliments, poetry etc. so Happy Anniversary babe of the cakes, now…about that litter.
Normally there are multiple sites visited each year to amass enough photos for this columns anti-litter article. Sadly, this year we only need visit site No. 1. The photos you see are only a handful of dozens that were taken in less than 50 yards of lakeside beach front. There wasn’t even a yard of open ground that didn’t contain some form of refuse. After looking over these photos only one thing can be ascertained: you are a stupid, self-centered, mindless fool...if you’re a contributor.
No.1 Why drag jagged pieces of metal to the lake? To cook on? Seriously?
No.2 So you can pile it up but you can’t pick it up? It takes the same amount of effort.
No.3 OK so you took off your shirt for a swim, then threw it in the water? WTF?
No.4 Well at least you folded your jeans nicely before wiping you’re a$$ with a roll of soggy toilet paper.
No.5 Beer cans are not firewood.
No.6 So shirt, jeans and socks were abandoned along with a diaper, meaning there was a child present, which boggles the mind at
No.7 A plethora of shattered shards of clear glass. Hope that kid was wearing shoes.
No.8 & 9 Seriously, you couldn’t carry your one bottle back to your car?
Tragically, all the trash in all these pictures was less than 50 feet away from—
No.10 This is a trash can, which I’ve included because apparently a lot of stupid people don’t know what they are.
So, for those who believe a good time means when you leave, you leave stuff behind—thanks! Thank you for providing me with a photo-op for this article. Thank you for reminding me that people suck! And mostly, thank you for continuing to prove how stupid you are! Please stop littering, it ruins the world for the rest of us...and makes you an a**hole!
