As I came out of the gym tonight I watched a guy throw some paper on the ground. It wasn’t much, but it made me so mad. I walked over to him and loudly asked if he was going to leave it there. He said it was on the stop of his car and he didn’t want it in his car. I said “fine”, grabbed it, walked 5 feet to a trash can and tossed it.
I probably would have made more impact by having a conversation, but my reaction was too strong to let me think about how to have the biggest effect.
Makes me wonder. I don’t know that yelling at someone is going to make someone change their behavior. I guess it could also get you shot here in Florida where a lot of people carry guns.
I should have taken his picture.
What would you do?
