“Please don't throw your cigarette butts in the urinal.  It makes them soggy and hard to light.”

TIME:  1:51 PM
PLACE:  Route 15 & 11th St.
SUBJECT:  Cigarette butts

I will start off by saying that I have nothing personal against anyone who chooses to smoke cigarettes.  You all are keeping a whole industry alive and a large segment of the population employed because of your habit/addiction.  And I appreciate that.  However, I do have a bone to pick with some of you smokers.  *clears throat*

THE WORLD IS NOT YOUR ASHTRAY! 

Quit throwing your butts out of your car window and don’t empty your car’s ashtray in the turn lane while you are waiting for the light to change.  That’s called littering and it’s disgusting.  The next time I’m behind someone and they do that, I’m so tempted to pick it up, knock on the window and hand it back with a smile while sweetly saying “I think you may have dropped this.”

Very disgusting all the way from start to finish. I love driving behind someone who flicks it out their window and it bounces under my car....

I am with you on that! I hate when they throw it out the window & your right behind them & you see the little red flame coming at you!

Amen!! I hate it when I see piles of cigarette butts in parking lots, etc. Nasty, nasty, nasty!

But not as nasty as those bottles thrown along highways with *ahem* yellow liquid inside them. But that's another blog post someday, maybe? LOL
