ahh, the first beer bottle of the season! the sun is shining, the birds are singing, idiots passing in cars with open windows are flinging empties on my lawn...it must be spring!
in a related item: why do people not consider cigarette butts trash ? i'm positive that the majority of the smokers who fling their butts from their car windows and casually drop them as they walk throw most of their trash in a garbage can. i really sense that they don't actually think it counts as littering.
i am particularly sensitive to this and many other driving-related issues due to the location of my house at a busy intersection where i'm able to do extended anthropological studies of driving behaviors, as well as listen to a bizarre car radio soundtrack all summer long (obviously heavy on the thumping bass, but - surprisingly - also rife with very loudly played songs by foreigner).
