Customers Gone Stinkin’ Wild

Shopping
I took this photo yesterday in a Home Goods store. 



This is the aisle for rugs and mats. 



And it is a disaster zone!



I asked the clerk (with the orange apron on) knelling on the floor at the end of the aisle if the customers did this.



And he said, “Oh yes!” and he had to clean it all up. 



My G-d, what gets into people? 



It’s one thing to shop–pick things up and put them down–but throwing everything all over and trashing the place–stuff on the floors and literally left dangling off the shelves. 



And forgetting for a moment what this does to other people’s shopping experience and the potential loss of sales for the store…



How about we think for a moment about the poor guy working in the store to earn a few bucks for his family who now has to go on and his knees to clean up this pigfest? 



Is this really shopping or for some people perhaps it’s is a way of venting their anger by choosing to sh*t on the innocent next guy.



Gee whiz folks–can you have a heart? 😉

Flying Garbage

Flying Garbage
Thought this was an interesting way to get the garbage to the curbside truck.



This guy is standing in the yard of this brownstone building in the leftover snow.



Almost like an Olympian, he is picking up bag after bag of garbage and tossing them at least a dozen feet (or more).



The garbage in these big hefty bags are sailing through the air to his partner standing by the truck in the street. 



This guy must be getting quite some exercise not only lifting, but also throwing these bags all day long.



And he actually seemed to be having some fun doing it too.



Like my wife said, “What if you get hit by the garbage…ew.



Fly garbage, fly! 😉
