The Squire had to run to the store this morning, and as he was getting out of his car he was hit in the head by an empty cigarette packet. He stopped, looked at the packet, and then at the driver of the pickup truck next to him. The driver simply shrugged and continued to puff away.

The Squire looked at the packet a second time, and then at the driver. No result. On the third go-round, the woman sitting next to the driver spoke up.

“Harold, get off your lazy a** and pick up your own trash. You know better!”

The Squire couldn’t see the woman well enough to tell if she was Harold’s wife or mother, but Harold did start to open the door of his truck, and The Squire walked away.

    What an inconsiderate man! Whoever the lady was, good job for ticking him off. Try doing that in lil red dot (Singapore) and you get slapped a SGD500 fine or up to SGD1,000. Tank goodness Squire was not hurt and that it was an empty cigarette pack.

      Some people consider the rules in Lil Red Dot to be a bit overbearing, but there are times when I wish we had some of them here. Americans are just such slobs!

        Yes, we have been chided as draconian by Americans but look at how that American vandal Michael Fay turned out in USA after he was sent home from here, He vandalised even more cars in USA. But we need rules and laws and for one, I am happy we have gun control here else our crimes would be looking at more fatalities.

        I remember that case. He seemed to take a long time to figure out he was his own worst enemy.
