The world is not your ashtray

I'm in a cranky mood these days and one thing that gets the crank going is driving home behind folks tossing butts and ashes out their window. One place I sometimes (and used to more frequently) report abusers to is Pennsylvania, Texas, and North Carolina currently participate with the lone guy that runs the site in mailing letters to reported offenders based on their license plate.

While some may think ratting out your highway neighbor smacks of "Nazi" tactics, trashing the world smacks of selfish stupidity. Smoke in your car if you want to, but nobody wants to see your butt.

This one hit home with me. I HATE seeing folks pitch their butts from the car, or onto the sidewalk we all walk down...even worse is seeing them on the play ground.

Reposting a comment I had to delete -- this time without the expletive -- My kids read this blog!

"AMEN! My Brother! AMEN! We all need to be a little more considerate of each other and aware of our actions; littering of butts is an extremely costly and environmentally damaging habit. WAKE UP [deleted expletive that referred to a more specific part of the 'butt' region]"

Very clever, and well put. Maybe you should do bumper stickers...

If my Grand Pappy hadn't been set a fire by a thrown stogie into his ox cart I'd say yoos a narc.

Speaking of license plates, that guy in PA has them for sale:

Doesn't look like he's making any profit (the money goes to Cafepress), so slapping one of these on your car would help spread the word.
