Ten Reasons I Hate People (9)

As I pulled up to the line at the Wendy's drive-through, the driver's-side door of the car in front of me popped open just a little. Out fell a McDonald's take-out bag, quite obviously filled with McRefuse, and a McDonald's cup. They were simply tossed out onto the pavement.

Apparently, some people think that fast food joints hire people specifically to go out and clean the garbage off the parking lot. Some people are completely unable to put themselves in another's position. Here's a quick glimpse at how these litterbugs "contribute" to the daily routine of a fast-food employee:

Imagine that you work at a fast-food restaurant. You make minimum wage. Every day you come home greasy and reeking of kethcup and onions. You're on your feet all day, and you might just make enough to pay the rent and the bills. You cook the food, or you deal directly with hurried customers who expect to get a special order as quickly as a standard cheeseburger, and occasionally you are called off your normal duties to go clean out the restrooms, where excessive toilet paper use often clogs up the johns.

Then some asshole who gets to work from a chair and who never works nights or weekends comes along and decides to make the parking lot his own private trash can. You're asked to go out in an Indiana winter and pick the crap up.

Of all the seemingly random shootings that happen every year, I'm surprised that more of them aren't fast-food employees going nuts and taking out disrespectful customers.

It's probably because they can't afford the cost of a gun.
