Mostly, I love humans.
Every now and again though, some do some things that really challenge my value system.
We visited a friend for dinner and had parked Harry Hilux in the street. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and were feeling very relaxed and happy when we left (no not drunk, just happy).
We walked up to the car.
Harry Hilux has a tray back and when we got to him there on his back was a half full carton of chocolate milk.
“Really!” Someone had left their rubbish sitting there.
We looked around for a bin. No bins.
We didn’t want to leave it in the street, so I ended up carrying it home in my hands whilst Ross drove and threw it in the bin when we arrived home.
In these days of Covid, I was also a little anxious about touching the rubbish.
What goes on in people’s brains that they think that sort of behaviour is okay?
It’s not okay.
Even if there wasn’t a bin in sight, please take your rubbish with you until you find one.
Okay, rant over.
What would you have done?
Would you have left it in the street or found a bin?
Let’s not litter Australia.
Let’s take responsibility for our actions and look after this amazing country and planet we call home.
