A Little Sign of the Times: Lazy, Inconsiderate, Selfish, Cretins
There are some "Donation Stations" for a children's charity around town and every time I drive by there is trash that some inconsiderate lowlife put there instead of taking to the local dump. On numerous occasions I have witnessed blood, urine, and feces stained mattresses strewn haphazardly by these stations like a makeshift testament to the depravity of our hedonistic culture.
It's all about "me" our depraved culture screams. I don't care if the local dump is just five miles away, I'm too selfish and lazy to care! It's somebody else's problem, not mine! American Idol is on in ten minutes, I don't have the time! I need to stuff my face with more cakes, pastries, and cream puffs while I wash it down with a beer and surf pornography on my computer.
This charity is helping children yet these despicable miscreants are costing them untold thousands of dollars a year to haul their bed bug infested garbage to the dump for them. I know in the grand scheme of things this might be trivial, but it sticks out like a sore thumb every time I drive by.
There is a very large sign on these donation stations that clearly states everything must fit into the box and no furniture is allowed. Of course that doesn't stop the backwards folk from disposing of their unwanted refuse they are too lazy to take to the local dump. One of these stations had to be removed because of all of the broken furniture and rotting mattresses that were "donated."
Of course our evil and depraved culture was precisely described to us almost 2,000 years ago in the Bible via The Book of Timothy:
"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was,"
2 Timothy 3:1-9.
I'm going to keep taking pictures and keep a tally here of all of the garbage that lazy people choose to "donate" to the people who are trying to help sick children. So come back often!
As of March 10, 2012 the remaining two donation stations by my home have been removed as a direct result of the; selfish, inconsiderate, scandelous, and lazy people who left their garbage as "donations."
These pictures are only from three weeks so you can get a pretty clear idea of the vast amount of trash left during the past two years.
"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!"
2 Timothy 3:1-5
