Over the weekend, I went to Brownwood for the craft show and had to drive around the parking lot to look for a parking space. Imagine my shock when someone from the car in front of me proceeded to step out of his car and throw some paper on the ground. My husband had to hold me back from yelling out something obscene to this person. While his car did not have Florida tags, I don't want to be judgemental. I just don't like people bringing their bad habits to 'my house'. If you have some trash, keep it in your car or golf cart and throw it out when you get home.

I don't pay good money to live in this beautiful place just to have a clod throw trash around. Please be respectful where ever you may live.
I would have picked it up and said "I believe you accidently dropped this" and handed it back to the person. That way is not confrontational but does provide a lesson.

BTW, walking and picking up trash is great exercise. We do it now and plan to continue when we become frogs this year. May be a good idea to form neighborhood clubs for walkers who could meet early morning once a week to adopt a public area to clean and then continue to brunch social after.

Great response. I'll be sure to use it next time. The worst part about this story is that the man threw the trash out right in front of 3 kids that got out of the car as well. Sadly his is a poor role model for those kids.
