one of the things i can't stand is littering. people thowing thrash out of
their cars, throwing cigarette butts to the ground and all that.
sometimes in marchi was standing in front of a supermarket where i had just
bought some fuit juice instead of a decent dinner. one of the things i absolutely
refuse to do is eating while walking so i took the time to enjoy this tropical
mix of fruit juice. it even contained several vitamins which we are told are
a little girl stepped out of the supermarket. she was probably not much older
than five years and not much taller than her roller. in her hands she held some
sweets. i don't know exactly what it was and it doesn't really matter.
what matters is that she was so eager on eating that stuff that she just ripped
the emballage away and threw it to the ground. she didn't even take her eyes
off that sweets for that. three meters away was a thrash can but she didn't
care and left and just left.
another city, another supermarket. i was waiting for my brother to pick me up.
a car stopped in front of the supermarket, passengers were a father and (presumably)
his son. the father handed his son some money and junior went buying a multipack
of cigarettes in the supermarket. being back, he sat into the car, ripped of
the folio around the cigarettes and threw it under the car. just like that.
a few minutes later he walked to the trainstation, 50 meters from the supermarket.
there are tens of trash cans....
i was very sad to see that and also very close to point this out these two.
what do parents teach their kids nowadays?
how ignorant will humanity become?
how much can you distance yourself from the planet you where born on and will
the scary part is the alienation that these people go through... i can't imagine
what it is and how intense. but i don't suppose these people litter at home
too. so they must think whatever is not their place is just free to (ab)use.
a real pity... the native americans, the indians, had a much better concept:
they believed that earth does not belong to anyone and treated earth with
much more respect. that's the way it should be!
