( 1:46 PM ) teahouse
Yesterday I was driving in central New Jersey when I came up to a red light next to a guy in a pickup truck.
He had his window rolled down and was pouring the remains of a bottle of soda into the bushes on the median.
Euw! He made eye contact with me, and then looked away, obviously embarrassed that I'd caught him defiling nature with a carbonated beverage.
Then he reached with his arm behind him and into the back of his pickup truck, pulled out a blue recycling bag, and put the empty bottle into it. And drove off.
At least he recycles plastic!#
What is wrong with dumping carbonated beverages (or coffee) into bushes or outdoor plants? I didn't know it was a no-no. :0
Ahhh, what a interesting human exchange and very deft and interesting telling thereof!
