Poll question: So I'm driving home from work (a poll)
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 08:08 PM by OhioBlues
and I hit the halfway mark. The road takes me past 3 nurseries and a cemetery before a small hill with several fairly sharp curves. Anyway, I just turned left onto the aforementioned road and I'm behind a couple of kids in what looks to be daddy's green 2002 Taurus. The driver, probably just 16 can't quite stay in his lane but there is no oncoming traffic so no big deal. I watch as the driver throws a half eaten hamburger out his window. Then the passenger tosses some fries, still in the little french fry envelope out his of window. Then they both throw some other paper napkins and bits of paper and I'm getting a little annoyed watching them litter the road. Without warning the passenger tosses a garbage bag full of who knows what out of his window and I have to swerve to miss that one. So I laid on my horn until the passenger turns around in his seat while I'm pointing back at the trash.

I guess they didn't care for me honking and calling attention to what they just did because they both grabbed their drinks, full of mountain dew and ice, (I'm guessing by the color) and flung them at my car, one at a time. I'm dodging these cola bombs as we start up the hill(they both missed btw). The driver thinks he will just lose me by speeding up but we're coming to the curvy parts and I figure I'll slow up so the kid doesn't kill himself trying to run away from someone who isn't chasing him. They don't get very far before they come up on a bus doing about 15 mph so of course I caught up with them and they are both waving at me with just one finger. I figure I'll just act like I'm calling the cops so I'm having a fake conversation and pretending to read their license plate and you can see the look of terror come across the the passengers face as he shakes his cell phone at me. Anyway, they made the first turn they could and pulled over to the side of the road. I just stared at them as I went on my way noting their immature faces with eyes as big as saucers. So...What would you have done.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. I almost thought it was funny, if I didn't dislike littering as much
as I do. Dumb kids. They probably think the police are going to come to their house and get them or at least be grounded from ever driving the car again. I only hope.

2. I bet your state
has a 1-800 number to report litterbugs like that. They were all over the place in the 70s, and I bet they're still around.
