Have people got no respect?

As I came out of my local supermarket today I noticed about a dozen empty crisp packets just laying on the ground near the store cash-machine. Considering I bring my kids up to have respect for things including disposing of litter properly, I find it disgraceful that there are people around that cannot be bothered to walk a few extra steps to a litter bin. How many other people get annoyed by other peoples lack of respect?

  • I don't understand what their problem is. Also, I do not know what a crisp package is.

  • What bothers me is when people leave raw meat in an isle totally apart from the meat dept. That is just really lazy! I usually take it up front and let the cashier deal with it.

  • With regards to not having the time (referring to comment made by older), it shouldnt be a case of trying to find time to respect the environment, it should be an automatic thing. There are plenty of litter bins dotted around, it shouldnt be too much trouble to just drop the litter into one as it is being passed.

  • I really don't get it. It's as if they can't think 30 seconds ahead to when they get near the next rubbish bin.

  • I agree! Something that really really makes me angry is when someone is driving down the road and just tosses their garbage out the window! You're in a car, for goodness sake, just hang onto your trash until you get to a gas station or home or wherever to put the trash in a bin. Is it really so hard?
