This one goes out to all the selfish, thoughtless, bone idle chumps out there.

So, you’ve had a snack or a drink whilst you’re out and about? Fair enough, goodness knows we all need a little snack now and again to keep us going. And now you’ve finished you’re going to put your rubbish in the bin, or stick it in your pocket or bag until you get home yes? What do you mean no? Are you completely stupid? Do you think that someone else should come along and pick it up for you? Is it too heavy? Because by definition, if you’ve recently consumed the contents of the container you’ve just chucked in the hedgerow/flowerbed/pond/grass verge/garden you just happened to be passing, then it will be lighter, you fool. Have you not thought about the wildlife you may be endangering? Not bothered about the children who may cut themselves on the glass bottle you discarded on the park? No? Idiot.

And while we’re here, you there clearing up after your dog. Good to see you picking up the canine crap and putting it in a bag. Excellent. Now you’re going to put it in a dog bin, or take it home and bin it, yes? What do you mean, no? You’re going to tie the bag up and hang the poo in a tree or leave it on the ground? Have you taken leave of your senses? No. You are just ugly. Your behaviour is ugly. You make beautiful places ugly. Stop it.

Today’s rant was brought to you in association with the fabulous Gallery at Sticky Fingers. Go and have a peruse.

    I totally agree with your rant, it makes me so cross when people throw stuff away without thinking.

  2. jfb57 says:

    You are SO right!!

  3. Oh your photos are terrible (well the subject matter, not the actual photography which is very good and almost makes it look beautiful which isn’t what we want lol).

  4. whatshappeningatmyhouse says:

    Quite agree, and obviously lots of other people do too (third pic I’ve seen on this theme this week). Good choice, and yes, extremely ugly (and unnecessary, too). x

      I’m not surprised it was a popular choice for “ugly”. Last week lots of people posted photos of their local parks and talked about how much they enjoyed them – so we are also bound to get irritated (to say the least) by people who sabotage them in this way!

    You are so right – it always makes me cross that whenever we walk anywhere, I always have to have a rant about littering. Your pictures are definitely ugly – why do they do it?

    • parklover says:

      I really have no idea! I went for a run yesterday and the hedgerow (which the council had planted lots of daffodils next to) was full of litter. Such a shame.

  6. Nova says:

    I just don’t understand how people could do that. :0(

  7. Lazy, lazy just pure laziness. These people who have no consideration for anyone other than themselves are just LAZY!! Great idea for the theme.

  8. Elizabeth says:

    Definitely Ugly!

  9. JulieB says:

    I think we’re definitely agreed on this one! I would say that great minds think alike, but sadly it probably means there is too much of this sort of thing out there.

  10. Chelle says:

    If people do this on the streets, in parks, woods and other public areas I wonder how their houses look like. May I add chewing gum spat on paving to this?:-)

    • parklover says:

      Of course you may! I suspect people have a double standard wherby they would be very upset about someone dropping litter in THEIR home.

  11. Heidi says:

    Nice one, Kath. I couldn’t agree more! Thank you for your comments over on mine…

  12. Grrr I hate litter! it does look ugly – although arranged in a nice collage could be quite beautiful! See I struggled massively with *ugly*!

  13. Cheshire Mum says:

    Great take on the Ugly theme, I like a lot – the post not the litter of course!

    • parklover says:

      One would assume that no-one likes litter, but there must be alot of people out there who don’t mind it, given the volume!

  14. Great photos, really captures the ugliness of thoughtless abandon! Well done! And thanks for your comments on mine! x

  15. Hayley says:

    That is just so hideous isnt it! Its interesting that a few people have posted along the same lines. Glad we’re all in agreement its horrid!
