In this case, it’s a bottle and this one guy in jeans can’t seem to get rid of it.
It’s sort of hilarious.
First, the bottle is dumped by an uncaring passenger, it rolls around for awhile, and ends up sitting in the middle of the train car.
The train stops at the station and the people coming aboard step around and over the water bottle.
This guy in the center is irked by this bottle and just sort of blatantly kicks it at a women in winter boots standing by the doors.
But it eventually rolls back and hits him in the foot.
He’s talking away (blah blah) on his cell, yet maneuvers the bottle ever so discretely to roll it backwards to someone else
But it ends up right back at him twice more.
Next stop, he runs off the train (and away from this bottle), but the person behind him kicks it after him and towards the doors.
Then this one lady with the orange bag and red purse gets up from her seat, and gives it a big kick right out the door.
She does this while the other people are boarding…oops watch out for the flying bottle.
Garbage left on the Metro…Goal! Score! 😉

I took my daughter for a flu shot last evening.
We went through the typical drawn-out paperwork and long wait to get something so routine.
When the medical practitioner finally arrived with the flu shot, there was a little baggy with all the acoutrements including alcohol wipe, band-aid, cotton, etc.
As the lady starts taking out the items to get ready for giving the shot, she drops the cotton on the floor.
She picks it up quickly, and pretending we didn’t see, she quickly throws it back on the medical tray.
Now I am watching…
She open the band-aid and places it at the ready on the side.
Then she get the syringe AND the cotton that had just fallen on the floor, ready in hand.
As she is about to give the shot, I say, “You’re not going to use the cotton on my daughter that just fell on the floor, are you?”
Her eyes look askance and she throws the cotton back down on the tray, and says, “Oh, of course not.”
I spoke with my daughter afterwards about this as it was hard to understand how a medical practitioner could on one hand, be administering a helpful medicine to a patient, and at the same time, was about to use a dirty cotton on the wound afterwards.
What happened to people actually caring about people and taking pride in the jobs they do, rather than just being in it for the paycheck only?

This family had just come out of Costco loaded with groceries.
They are heading to the garage to pack it into their car.
A BMW comes racing through the garage and runs over one of these mega Costco cereal boxes.
The car keeps going with the cereal box being dragged underneath.
The family runs through the garage and cuts off the BMW waving and yelling for him to stop.
He skids across the double-yellow line and stops blocking both sides of the road.
The man who lost his cereal bends under the front of the BMW to try to extricate the cereal.
The box is so Costco big, it barely can come out.
The man’s family looks on from the side.
Finally, he wiggles the box this way and that and gets the cereal box out from under the BMW.
The driver is standing there sort of bewildered by the whole thing.
If the cereal box could talk, I think it’d beg for a better ending than this.
Too often, as we go through life, we mow other people down who are in our way.
Thank G-d, this was just a box of cereal and not the man’s child or wife that had been run over and dragged.
I wondered how degrading it must have felt for this poor guy to be bending down in the street to get the box out, while the driver simply looks on in an uncaring disdain.
I almost thought for a moment, the driver was going to either just keep going or when he got out wallop the other guy for hassling him to get his cereal.
People can be strange that way and you never know what is going to happen next.
It is good that other people can be around with smartphone cameras and video, so that people don’t feel that they can just behave indiscriminately and obscurely.
In the end, no one should think they are all that–and have the right to uncaringly run over others’ persons or things.
We are all frail humans and G-d is always there with a very big, high megapixel smartphone recording it all for judgement day. 😉
