I don't know about you, but when I see someone litter I immediately regard them as less than human.
I see all of their civil rights stripped away.
I see them being roughed up, stripped and sent off on an ice float, banished to the desert or left in the middle of dense vegetation for the animals and pygmies.
I would only feel a small bit of sympathy for them if they were to litter and then be crushed by a falling air conditioner, or nailed by a bus.
That's not true, that would be horrific and sad.
But littering conjures these flare ups of rage that I can only describe with violent imagery.
I just have no idea what is going through this person's mind.
They obviously have no respect for their environment, and I am not talking on a global scale here but just as far as keeping things clean, this is not important to them.
And they have no respect for the people, the hard working people that have to clean up after them.
They certainly don't respect you or I.
I picture the carpet of trash in these people's homes.
Littering should be punishable by one full garbage can being shaken throughout the perpetrator's dwelling.
Or community service, cleaning up the area that they were seen littering.
Well, that's all I got right now.
