That's interesting you should say that. I am a smoker (yes I KNOW it's bad) and today got pulled over for dropping it out the window. Now before anyone gets upset, I did have an makeshift ashtray beside me and I did not mean for it to go out the window, it slipped out of my fingers and a cop was behind me and he gave me a warning, thank goodness.
I am the first person NOT to throw cigarette butts anywhere. Even at work I couldn't stand when people did it so I put a pail of sand outside, swept up what was on the ground so they weren't on the ground anymore and now everyone uses the pail. Also, if I know someone isn't a smoker I will walk away from them so I don't bother them.
You sound like a very considerate person. I wish others were as polite, both non-smoker and smoker.
As a non-smoker, I'm amazed at my fellow non-smokers using ashtrays as trashcans further upping the ante for a fire hazard when a trash can is readily available nearby
That's a good point! It's not just smokers that litter, it's anyone who has put garbage where it doesn't belong, your point of in the ashtray (doesn't matter who it is) so where are smokers suppose to put out cigarettes if the ashtray is full of garbage? Now that is just one point but I see, as a non-smoker where you were going with that.
Another pet peeve is being on a train or GO bus (probably Greyhound to others) and people just leave their garbage on the seat or the floor when there are garbages provided. This seriously ticks me off because it raises prices to pay for clean up and it's just plain RUDE! Actually putting garbage anywhere other than where it's suppose to be is rude!
OMG... literally watched a guy throw out his fast food bag in a Menards' parking lot recently. Just rolled down the window and tossed it out, then proceeded to drive RIGHT PAST THE TRASH CAN IN THE FRONT OF THE STORE! 8) What is wrong with people? Who has taught them that this is OK?
Sorry, your post sent me on a tangent. >( >( >(
