This month at O+U, we’re discussing things that irritate, anger, and otherwise enrage us. If you know me at all, you know I’m a pretty laid back person. I try hard to embrace the motto “live and let live.” That said, if there’s one thing that absolutely infuriates me….it’s littering. I go beserk over littering. I stop. I swear. I swear some more. I pick it up and throw it away. Because generally that’s the rub….the trash can is 20ft away. Are you f&*#ing kidding me? Walk the 20ft and toss it in the trash/recycle can!! How hard is that?!!
Those individuals that go hiking and bring along the Snickers Bar and the can of Diet Coke? Why leave it in a crumpled mess along the trail? You need your sugar/caffeine intake? That’s cool…no judging here. Why leave it though? If you can pack it in, you can damn well pack it out. It actually weighs less than when you started your hike! You just ate a Snickers!! You have the energy!! Toss it in your backpack and carry it out! How hard is that?! It’s not. What offends me the most is the sheer and utter lack of respect it shows. That makes my heart hurt. And then it makes me furious! Do you part. Show a little respect.
What about you? What gets your blood boiling?
