Do you have a green gripe? You know, something that seems so obvious to you, but so oblivious to others around you?
Case #1: Today I pulled into a parking lot and was about to start unloading my children, when a woman parked in front of me turned on her car, rolled down her window and THREW OUT AN EMPTY PLASTIC BOTTLE!!!!! I wish there was some hotline to call with her license plate number! Just throwing out a plastic bottle in a trash can will get me griping inwardly, but to just toss it into a parking lot?!?
Case #2: Last week I went to the grocery store and they had their green bags on sale for 99c. I can always use a couple extra at this point, so I picked some up. After I bought them, the cashier asked if I wanted to use them now, or put them in a plastic bag. ARE YOU KIDDING?
Case #3: My husband. My dear wonderful husband. Now, this is not to call him out in front of the whole world about his costs on the environment....who am I kidding! Sure it is! My dh refuses to take a shower. Weird? Yes, I think so. He takes a long, large bath. Every day. Sometimes 2x a day. I've mentioned it nicely, even suggested a 2 day a week shower mandate to get the ball rolling. Nothing has worked. Sigh, I guess there are some habits that die much harder than others.
Do you have any gripes? I'd love to hear 'em!
