The Monday Peeve 53

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!

Let’s get right to it, shall we? LITTERBUGS. Oh my god, they make me so annoyed! It’s like… this is YOUR earth also, so why do you want to crap it up? You live here too, doh. But more specifically, when the garbage bin is literally RIGHT THERE, why are people throwing stuff on the ground? I just don’t get it. At every apartment complex I’ve lived, there has been trash on the ground right next to the bin. Sometimes it’s from people who must put out their trash while the truck is dumping the bin because they can’t wait a minute until it’s put back. Other times it’s just from lazy people who can’t be bothered to expend that extra calorie of energy to toss their bag in. Finally, we have the garbage pickers who sneak in to find their “treasures” in our trash and make a mess while doing so. IT’S ALL DISGUSTING.

  1. Mostly it’s either the homeless people who go through the garbage in hopes of finding something wearable or edible, or its those squirrels which take advantage of lids left open and make a huge mess.

  2. Agreed! The apartment “tower” I lived in had “concierge” trash pickup, but it was once a week and good for about half of the trash generated. I carried the surplus to the bin myself, to find it locked so the homeless people wouldn’t get into it and spread it around the parking lot. Usually there were several bag there already, lined up next to the bin. Sort of like when your cat thinks the litter box is too full . . . too early on a Monday morning for a visual.

  4. Yep! I SOOO get this one! The dumpster for the apartments next to us is right on the other side of the wall by my back gate. Lazy people, or people with horrible aim will occasionally toss their trash over the wall into my yard. Zeus thinks its great, me… not so much. And the parking lot is always full of trash. Some people are just gross!

  5. Litterbugs are found all over the planet, sadly. However, it may not always be the human littering, especially if the trash can has no lid. Whenever I see a dog poop bag next to the bin, I know one of the local birds dragged it out of the trash. I and my neighbors have seen it happen. Other trash can get dragged out, too. (We keep wanting to get those bird-proof public trash cans.)

  6. I have to agree about littering. My solution is every time a person litters, thst item is permanently stuck to you. It wouldn’t take long😬

  7. OMG… I just did a 5 day driving holiday through the mountains and at more than one rest stop found, usually by smelling it…, evidence of people dumping their caravan septic! Disgusting!

  8. When we lived in Toronto there were raccoons who could open any garbage can. They would spill out the contents and pick through looking for what they might like. But seriously the litterbugs I truly detest are smokers who just fling their cig butts on the ground.
