Vote for Me for Cheeto Queen
I am not a littering person and never have been. In 11th grade, one of the most popular girls in school took me under her wing. If I'd stuck with her, maybe I could've joined the upper echelons of high school and become Homecoming queen and dated football players, like in every teen makeover story that ever was.
But the first time I went out with her and her friends, they got dinner at a fast food place and then threw all the trash out the window. They didn't give it a second thought; they didn't debate what to do with it first. Chunking it all out the window was their first and only reaction.
I couldn't be their friend after that. Okay, there were other reasons, too. But the moment the wadded paper bag flew out the window, I knew they were not my kind of people.
So what kind of people throw out trash on someone's lawn? I can see a little more how people distance themselves from the harm they're doing when littering on the Interstate or deep in the country. It's unsightly and makes the whole city/state look bad, but it seems to affront no individual person.
But how can they justify depositing paper cups and food wrappers on my lawn? And why is it always Cheetos? There is no justifying it or explaining it. It's plain inconsiderate.
I will say it right now - those people suck. I will never hang out with those people, not even if they offer to set me up with the quarterback.
