One Good Apple

Hey you.

Yes, you, the slack wearing, button down shirted citizen, the one who was walking his dog through the crosswalk. I saw you while I was sitting on the bus stuck in traffic. I saw you stop in the middle of the crosswalk and grab two handfuls of trash that were obviously not yours; all while walking your dog and holding a bag of poo. I saw you good citizen and I salute you.

Thanks for helping to make the neighborhood and the city a better place.

    I love this post.

    Thank YOU, for noticing and calling the guy out. Too often, we’re quick to complain, slow to praise…

    Well, at least I am, anyway…

    This is a good part of what makes Portland great.

    When I’m walking my dog (and already feeling a little dirty), I’ll often pick up a little trash along the way. I think other dog owners do it, too. I thought that this habit could be reinforced and turned into a public relations campaign for a pet store or something.
