One of my biggest pet peeves of all-time is people who flick their cigarette butts out the window while they’re driving in front of me down the highway.
I’m not sure which is worse – when we’re going 75 mph down the freeway in the middle of the night and the sparks catch me off guard as the butt bounces off the road, or when we’re somewhere in the city and they do it just before pulling up to a light, leaving me to wish I had more of a presence that would support my getting out of the car, picking up their smoldering cigarette butt, and throwing it back through the window at them before returning back to my own car.
Granted, I’ve never actually done the latter because chances are it would probably get me punched in the face, but come on – what does that say about smoking?! They’re not so disgusting as to prevent you from sucking pack after pack of cancerous tar directly into your lungs, but to then dispose of the remaining butts properly by using the ash try that’s built into your own vehicle … that would be gross because then you’d have to smell nasty cigarette butts everywhere you go.
One of these days when I finally grow muscles, I’m gonna start to change the world – one arrogantly discarded cigarette butt at a time…
