This topic caught my interest from the beginning and now I have to
chime in. I am as thrifty as the next person and environmentally
aware. I buy a large portion of my belongings at thrift stores, I
recycle, reuse etc…. I even drive a Ford Hybrid Escape. Having
said all that, I am in no way against Capitalism – we are the great
nation we are for a reason.
When I have an item that someone else might be able to use and I am
going to throw it out – I keep it separate from the rest of my trash
and put it in clear site – free for the taking. I have had people ask
if they can have items, I have even asked people if I can have
items…. BUT when people tear open my trash bags (making a mess) and
rummage through them, (which I witnessed from inside), I have
I TOTALLY AGREE — at that point I would consider it vandalism whey they make a mess!
I didn’t confront the people, because in this day and age,
confrontations can get ugly real quick, and I am a single female
living alone. From that day forward, the last thing I do before I
seal my trash bag, is clean the yard of dog feces. They only tore
them open one time after that. I am a huge believer in property
rights and if I pay for something it is mine – I decide who, what
where and how it is used.
God bless the USA,
great letter could not have said it better myself!
