Wordless Wednesday 5/16/12 – Litter

I realize this is supposed to be wordless, but I don’t think I’ve been wordless a day in my life. I live on a corner lot, my neighborhood isn’t the greatest. It’s not IN the ghetto, but much farther in most directions and you’re in some iffy places. I’m constantly cleaning up crap from my yard. It floors me that in 2012 people still litter. It was drilled into me never to litter, even the smallest of things. The other day I saw a little kid throw a bottle in my neighbor’s yard and I told him to pick it up. He just waved me off and kept walking.


But then I see these in my yard and while I’m still angry about litter and having to clean up other people’s junk from my yard, pretty things like these make me feel a little better.



  1. That would really make me upset too! It’s too bad people can’t pick up after themselves! And don’t feel bad- I’m never wordless either lol

    I hate litter too. I also can’t stand when people throw cigarettes out the car window. It isn’t your ashtray!

  4. We have neighbors that walk daily as part of their retired life. About once a week, the husband carries a grocery store bag and picks up trash as he walks. I want to be that person when I get to retirement!

  5. IT makes me angry how lazy people are sometimes, really like you can’t find a garbage can?? Your flower did make it seem better though 🙂

  6. I don’t get why people think liter is ok! It makes me crazy. My daughter and I have been talking a lot about littering recently (she is 4) and she said very loudly the other day, “That man just littered.” She was right, and I hope he heard her!

    Oh I hate when people willy-nilly litter!

  10. I don’t understand how people feel so entitled that rules don’t apply to them and it’s ok to litter or break someone else’s belongings… I could go on and on

    • Yes, exactly! What makes a person so arrogant to think they can do whatever they want? I just don’t understand.

  13. We used to live one block over from a high school and we had junk in our yard all the time. I’m so sorry to hear you called one out on it and they didn’t have the decency to pick it up. When we were on the subway, I even saw a young dad pull out a juice box and throw the cover on the straw under the seat as if it would just disappear like dust. It’s so sad that people even take the little things for granted 🙁

  17. I have never understood littering. I can’t believe people don’t teach their kids that littering is not acceptable!

  23. We get garbage on our yard too, but it’s from the wind blowing it from people’s recycle bins. I would be angry if people were just throwing their junk on my yard!

  25. I hate when people litter or do other things that make our neighborhood messy. Don’t they know that its their area they are dirtying up as well. They should know better than that!

  26. I get so angry when I see trash on the ground! I also pick it up – my kids do too – we all have to do something, I feel like. Thank you for caring about your neighborhood enough to clean up stuff that doesn’t belong to you.
