I think I may have the answer to a burning issue in America right now.
Can you see it?
Do you see what I’m talking about?
Take another look at the second photo. Analyze it.
Give up? (or, if you got it and want to know more…)
I’m not sure how large or easy to read this photo is, so let me give the brief description.
We live in a pretty small apartment community. You can see the ENTIRE length of it in that picture. There is no more to it. One building. That’s it. It takes about 5 seconds to walk from one end to the other. (I counted).
And yet…we have some neighbors who find it too troublesome to walk this length in order to toss out their garbage. Instead, they find this to be a viable alternative:
- Walk lazy ass outside, dragging one bag of garbage behind them
- Place said garbage bag (a) inside car or (b) inside trunk or (c) on top of trunk
- Drive to the garbage bin (0.5 seconds drive)
- Drag lazy ass out of vehicle, grab garbage bag
- Toss garbage away
- Return lazy ass to vehicle and (a) go somewhere or (b) drive back, park, and go inside
Notice I said neighbors, as in plural. And yes. We have witnessed people driving their garbage and returning to their apartment.
What’s that? “But it’s the cold Michigan winters!” you might be thinking, in defense of these poor saps.
No. Sorry. They do it all year round.
“Surely they are just old.”
No. Not that either.
No. Stop. There’s no excuse for this.
I rarely, rarely, RARELY ever reference individualistic reasons for social problems like our epidemic of obesity. In fact, I actually blame much larger structures for our current health problems in America (like the fact that high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients are in E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G and that calorie-counting diet programs are somehow promoted as healthy). I’m just really annoyed with this level of laziness and wanted to vent in a humorous way… I’m sorry, but there’s no social cause here. Our neighbors just SUCK.
