Clean up your mess

Despite the fact that we live in the suburbs, there is "wildness" all around us. Recently I've noticed spots in the yard covered with small feathers. I cursed the cats in our neighborhood for killing the birds that frequent our bushes. However, I recently found the culprit. It was a falcon of some sort. There it was dining in my front yard on some birdy delicacy. It was too quick for me to get an identification. But it left evidence of its meal. Yuck! Just thought I would gross you out today. You're welcome. Bear with me. (BTW - It is not "Bare" with me people. That means get naked with me and that is not where I'm going with this.) This is a segway into an actual point...

One of my pet peeves are grownups that leave a fast-food restaurant table in a mess. Why do totally capable, uninjuired, adults leave a fast-food restaurant without picking up behind themselves? There isn't a good excuse. The people that work at fast-food restaurants are tired just like you. They don't want to have to clean up your sloppy mess. Take a second and clean up your hamburger wrappers and wadded up napkins and dump it in the nearest trash can dude. Then take a CLEAN napkin and wipe up the table. It will only take a second and will make a big difference for the people that come after to you to that table. Teach your kids to do the same thing puhhhhleeze. This shows respect for others.

See... I was going somewhere with that. Roundabout, I know, but we all got there safely and fully clothed.

From hungry birds to hungry hordes. I like the way your mind works! My "behave yourself in public" rant goes like this: Please take a second to wipe up the area around the bathroom sink so the next person doesn't get her purse all wet! (Thanks, I feel better now.)

Amen sista! I also like "If you sprinkle, when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat." Also prevents purses from getting "wet". Ughhh.
