I will be the first person to admit that I am profoundly lazy. Specifically regarding chores and housework, I can't be bothered most of the time to complete any such tasks. My  sweet husband accepts that I'm a trash person in this way and picks up my slack. I don't do laundry, I don't do dishes, I rarely cook, I don't take out the trash, I rarely tidy up, I rarely put things back where they belong. But I keep this laziness in the confines of my own home.

I have noticed as of late that people are making lazy choices left and right in public spaces. Shopping trollies are strewn about in parking lots despite multiple cart returns in close proximity.

The insides of stores are a NIGHTMARE. I understand that people employed at these places are paid to maintain them, but why make it harder for them? Obviously there is some untidying that goes with shopping, especially with clothes. But I'm seeing stacks of shirts knocked to the ground, toys thrown off shelves and items being left in random spots instead of their proper places. Today I saw a pair of shoes left in the produce section. Last I checked, faux snakeskin booties aren't a vegetable.

And littering is fine now? I'm seeing trash dumped on the floor just feet away from a receptacle! Why?? We can't let the stress of pandemic life and the holidays keep us from acting right. We are better than this. Put in the extra effort in public and then be a slob at home if that helps. But we live in an absolutely beautiful community, let's be respectful and decent in our actions.
