Something else that I do that gets THE WIFE everytime.
When I see someone throw a cig butt or paper or whatever on the ground, I very politely, ask "Whose job it it to pick that up?" They get defensive and I say , "IS it my job?"
At this point most pick it up. Some dont and then I tell them that I appreciate just how filthy they are and am glade that I do not live in thier neighborhood.
I do this all the time. I re iterate, all in a very polite voice.
Most of the time in parking lots or entering a building.
i like that one, will have to remember it as i also hate when people just throw stuff on the ground.
kids dont do this, but young adults
btw, Marin what you are talking about is much much bigger scale. you know it is still legal to dump stuff in the ocean, as long as you go out far enough away.. not to mention that many coastal communities such as Los Angeles still do run "filtered" sevage into the ocean...
no doubt sooner or later the ocean just cannot keep absorbing all this garbage.
