Talking Trash About Trash

| Right | October 10, 2016

(I volunteer at a kiosk whenever our local soccer team is playing. We have two trash cans and one recycle bin, but despite the fact that there’s a large sign over it that says “CANS ONLY!” people always throw their trash in the recycle bin anyway. Today, an old man and a five-year-old boy are at the game, cheering for their team. The boy is just about to throw away an empty bag of chips.)

Old Man: “Throw it in there.” *points at recycle bin*

Boy: “But, Grandpa, it says “Cans Only.” Shouldn’t I throw it in there instead?” *points to trash can*

Old Man: “Why? It’s not our job! Leave it to those who work here!”

(He then proceeds to look at me with a smug smirk. Well done, sir, for teaching your grandchild that you don’t have to be responsible if you’re not a worker.)
