Dumping on Others
A few moments ago I drove to our local dump with a load of refuse. When I arrived there was only one person ahead of me. The problem was the guy wasn’t in any kind of hurry. He moseyed around his truck, picking and choosing from the junk that filled his bed. I’m not sure he noticed the line forming behind him, or if he cared, but when he finally got back into his truck he still didn’t pull forward. Instead he began searching for more trash in his crew cab. He got out and threw more stuff away and crawled into his vehicle again, sat there a while longer and then finally drove away.
I couldn’t help but laugh at my either oblivious or indifferent friend as I quickly disposed of my garbage and pulled away. I have to admit there are times when I’m lost in thought, or can’t muster the energy to care how I inconvenience others, but I try my best to make sure it doesn’t happen often.
