|Every time I see someone flick a cigarette out their car window, I want to get out of my car, pick up the cigarette butt, and shove it down that person's throat. I think that's a reasonable response. If the smoker's rationale is that "cigarette butts are too small to do anything bad to the environment", then I'd like to suggest that cigarette butts are also too small to do anything bad to your gastrointestinal tract. Once again, a reasonable response in my opinion.
But honestly, what's the deal? I've heard that smokers don't like to put the butts in the ashtray because it makes their car smell. I got news for ya: You smell. Your hair, your clothes, your breath. Everything. It stinks. And everyone knows you smoke. Isn't it enough that you're destroying the environment by spewing out your noxious fumes? Do you need to litter too? Would it make you mad if I threw some trash in your bedroom? Would you be angry if threw burning matches in your front lawn?
I guess I just don't understand the problem. I drive a car. I eat and drink while driving, so I generate garbage. But I put my garbage in a trash bag. It's really quite simple. When I'm done with my candy wrapper, I put it in the trash bag instead of throwing it out the window. When I'm done drinking my coffee, I put the cup in the trash bag instead of throwing it out the window. At what point did it become an acceptable practice to throw little pieces of trash out the window? Where's the logic? Where's the disconnect? What the heck is wrong with these people? #science
