I’m no rocket scientist. Those of you who are regular attendees at this site already knew that.
I’m no shrink either. So it is I’m left to wonder what goes through the minds of idiots who defile our curbs and walkways with their carelessness.
But even a laggard like me already knows that answer: nothing. How can there be? Only a true professional would be able to diagnose the impairment that effectively says ‘It’s okay for me to toss this out my car window.’ What the hell?
So by my definition – such people are irresponsibly crazy – there must’ve been a lot of impaired people driving about last night. This morning’s haul was another bag-buster. Literally, I ended up carrying or tucking under my arms debris (how does a huge chunk of a car’s plastic undercarriage end up on a sidewalk?) that would no longer fit in the jammed full Harris Teeter bag.
I’ll leave it to psychologists to answer the question of what qualifies as psychosis when it comes to discarding plastic and polystyrene and fast food junk. Unlike the professional description psychologists might attach to these morons, my wording for the mental infirmities of slobs won’t be so genteel.
