You say an old man outside an old folks home. My parents brought us up to take our litter home with us. My mother started just dropping litter when the Alzheimers started to get the better of her. Sometimes things aren't as simple as they look.phil.p":19g6bhmu said:I was walking down our avenue one sunny morning in October when we passed an old man leaning against a wall outside the old people's home. As we approached he unwrapped a Mars bar and threw the wrapper to the ground. My daughter fixed him with her steeliest glare and turning back to me said at the top of her voice Daddy, doesn't that old man KNOW that it it's wrong to throw litter? I felt embarrassed for a nanosecond ..... then thought good for you, kiddo. She was eighteen months old to the week. If children or youths don't know right from wrong it's their parents' fault, and their parents should pay for the damage.
