    Littering

    I was just wondering what your thoughts are on littering, and if perhaps any of you do it to keep your truck clean?

    What kind of stupid question is that? Do you think us to be simpletons and just throw our fast food trash out the window?

    Do you drive to work or bring your lunch?

    After sweeping up cigarette butts at a commercial rental property I wish the cops would start giving tickets out for that instead of all the BS traffic tickets the write. But that would require an original thought

    I've got one for ya.

    My wife got a letter from the Texas DPS, informing her that she was seen throwing a cigarette butt out her window. They gave the hundred block,street name, and time of day the offense occurred.
    No ticket though.
    True story.

    Up to a 200.00 fine in our city for tossing out a cigarette butt....

    Yeah, really, that is a top 5 five stupid question in here, and there have been loads of stupid ones for sure.
    You win some kind of award for that one.

    I stop at deli's and convenience stores a lot for beverages during the day. I fill the plastic bags they give me with trash till they're full and then tie them closed and pull up to the nearest dumpster to dispose of them.

    But...I live and work in a rural area. I'm not against throwing a banana peel, apple core, or something similar out of the window. I just make sure it goes out into the field or into the woods.

    Are you really asking us if we throw our trash out the window?

    Is this a trick question?

    Ummm ... I'm confused ... I thought you were a simpleton ... so are you saying you are not?

    Oh, remember to roll the window down first...

    Reminds me of that movie...where Billy Crystal goes to spit gum out the window and the window is up.

    I never litter intentionally. I've occasionally had a piece of paper blow out of the van, and all be danged if I'm going to chase it when it's windy as heck out.

    I was at the c-store the other day, standing talking with a friend in the parking lot. As we stood there some lady (nice looking too) came out with a pack of cigarettes (well, there went the good looking), sitting in her car, she opens the top (paper and plastic part), and just toss's it out the window. I swear some people need to be slapped.

    Even on bigger job sites it seems rare to find one that's clean with out garbage all over in the lot and building. I read on here some where that the European (?) job sites are known to be some of the cleanest around because they actually take pride in their site being clean. That'd sure be nice here!
