I took the garbage can out to the sidewalk for pickup. A few minutes later, I watch from the window as some teenagers roll up beside the trash can in their Honda CRV. One of them leans out the front window and attempts to open the trash can. She has a garbage bag in her hand which she is hoping to put the trash in. The garbage can falls over. The trash spills out. She drops her garbage on the road and they drive away.
They lecture to us about global warming and our responsibilities toward Mother Earth. Yet they can't even take the garbage out and clean up after themselves.
