Stinky Behavior

On the way to Jeff's Star Wars game tonight, I stopped to pick up dinner. While I was parking, a car drove past me and the driver tossed a lit cigarette butt out the window. Collapse )

I'm not really sure what the point of this story is, unless it's to share what seems to be (in my experience) an effective and mostly polite way of providing negative feedback to someone who is exhibiting socially unacceptable behavior.

I think it works, so I'm glad I did it. (Though it is a little bit obnoxious, and I feel sort of sorry about that.) But mostly I just wish it was unnecessary.

I think it was karmic payback that my fingers then smelled really awful until I got to Jeff's and washed them.
