Dear Worcester

When it rains and the city floods, don't act all surprised. This might be the last place on earth that it's ok to just throw trash everywhere.




I walk a lot. And I see cars open their windows and pop shit out almost every day. I see cars pull over, open the door and dump shit on the ground. Every time I read a paper or a blog, I see 'Worcester deserves this,' and 'Worcester deserves that'. Boo-hoo. Worcester 'deserves' the mess it's made of itself.

I usually pick that stuff up.

Then you're a better Nicole than I...

I'm not about to walk someone elses trash a mile to my house. Especially since it's a losing battle, there will be just as much shit there tomorrow. Plus it's gross and dirty and why should I have to touch someone elses gross and dirty trash? Pick, the F up after yourselves.

I remember having to make "Don't litter" poems and posters and freakin diaramas growing up. How do we teach people to give a crap about their neighborhoods now?

Ugh -- I didn't want to make it sound like I'm a saint. And it tends to be a lot easier for me because I'm pushing a double stroller, so it all goes in the bottom basket of the stroller.

What fascinates me as I walk are the households where people don't pick up the space in front of their house, or across the street. I know if I had to look at that, I'd collect it on trash day so I wouldn't have to...

i sweep the street that is in front of my house every year, sometime it comes out good and other times not so good, but i know that it makes a difference, I know, i still pay taxes, i know the town sends out the sweepers,but at the end of the day it is important to me because i like where i live. more people talk about Bull shit all the time ,but you have to pick up you broom once in a while, i know trash attracts trash no matter where you live.
