    It always irks me when folks don’t return their cart to the return rack but this is a new one! There it was lying on the ground. It seems like a careless, inconsiderate and lazy act.

    I saw a pair of used rubber gloves on top of a gas pump the other day. There was a garbage can right next to the pump. Some people are just inconsiderate @sses

    It could have also fallen out of someone's pocket. When someone leaves the store they are finished wearing the mask. I don't know why someone would purposely throw one of those away right now.

    Yup! Gas pump, I was at the station the other day and I guess the person before me wrapped a old napkin around the pump handle so they wouldn’t have to touch it and it was still stuck to it.

    Yep. If you're going to toss them, then take your products home, pull in your driveway, and unload them without your gloves, lol... Uhh..
    Not to mention, CVS has trash cans outside, or at least all the ones here do. Walk your lazy butt back across the parking lot and toss them in the trash. Geez.

    I’m carrying around a bottle of Lysol for such things as doors, pump handles, counter surfaces that don’t look freshly cleaned, or anywhere I’ll feel better about giving a spray to.

    a couple of years ago we had a bat problem and was told to spray Lysol where the live during the day and they would move on. Seems they don’t like the stuff. I bought 3 cans of spray and 4 bottles of concentrate. Each bottle will make 9 gallons and I had 3 bottles left. Finding a can of Lysol here is akin to finding the Holy Grail

    Surgical mask?
    Rubber gloves?
    Inconsiderate, yes.
    Big deal, not really.

    You fellas telling me y’all have never seen a poopy diaper slowly festering in the sun in a parking lot???

    I see most people not wearing the stuff at all. Those are the real jerks.

    So, did you pick it up, brush it off, and reuse it?
    Those are hard to come by right now. ;)

    If only he could have found a discarded tampon on the same day, this story would have been complete!

    While disgusting I'm not sure it's worse? You can see a used condom and walk away. Was there an epidemic at the time? lol

    At this moment in time, I'm grateful that there are fewer people pooping on the sidewalks.

    Don't throw away those hip-waders just yet, like the swallows returning to Capistrano, they shall return.
