I was taking my daughter to the inline skating park to practice and on the way there was an unusual amount of litter lining the grass pathway we were taking. Coke cans, chocolate wrappers, cigarette boxes. She scoffed at the sight and said,
“Why are people so lazy? There are trash cans everywhere.”
“Yes, but judging from the litter, you can tell that the people who litter aren’t very smart. They are all unhealthy things. Makes sense, right?”
“That’s right. You never see apple cores, banana peel, or avocado seeds on the street daddy. People who eat healthy things don’t litter,” she concluded.
And she’s right! The nature of the offense is your best clue as to the nature of the offender.
