Go Ahead, Smoke Your Lungs Out, But Please...

...stop throwing cigarette butts all over the place. No one who lives in my house smokes, but yet I constantly find that trash all over the place. Since the street I live on is something of a man-made river during heavy rain storms, I think a lot of it washes down, but some are also just thrown out of car windows. Disgusting, simply disgusting. It's insult to injury in a lot of ways: not only is someone fouling up their own inside, but they also feel compelled to four up my outside.

I don't want to sound trite, but this really, really cheeses me off. It's as if rules of civility regarding litter (as in "don't throw your trash in another person's yard") have this asterisk at the bottom that notes "except for cigarette butts".

Okay, got that out of my system. Now I have do go do some yard work, which includes picking up cigarette butts.
