I almost feel guilty about the two plastic bags I pulled from the briars at the soccer field. Perhaps if I’d left them someone would have come along who would have not only plucked them from the woods but then filled them with trash and ultimately put them in the trash cans by the fields.
That always gets me. I can see trash piling up in places where no trash cans exist. People who are can’t deal with taking the trash home with them to throw it away, maybe it’s kids on their bikes or kids carpooling with other kids’ parents who don’t want to bring garbage into someone else’s car. But to not be able to carry it a few yards, or even across the soccer field – to the trash can. Try as I might to justify it – that’s just plain lazy.
