This was a post I had on my previous blog-orignial posting date was 7/11/07:

ok...so i was sitting at an indoor sonic enjoying my peach iced tea and popcorn chicken when i saw a lady and her pre teen daughter walk by...they were carrying their food in sacks and a fork fell...what did they do? they paused to look at it, looked at each other, grinned and walked away...I am not quite sure why this bothers me...well, yes i am...even though this was a minute instance, what was this mother teaching her daughter? that it is ok to not pick up what you drop..if you know that someone else will eventually do it? that her timeline is more important that the person's that will clean up her mess?

the time it took for them to pause and grin, they could have picked it up...it wasnt like they were carrying a ton of stuff...the daughter was only holding her soda...

people, let's take responsibility for our actions...large or small...

don't leave your forks for someone else to pick up...

I see that kind of thing happen all the time, and it is one of my pet peeves. This is why our streets have so much trach strewn all around. I hope I'm teaching my kids better.
