... wear latex gloves to shop and then throw them on ground in the parking lot?

Texasbanjo - Posted - 04/04/2020:  04:41:17


Insensitive to others? Selfish? Who knows. Why do people leave their shopping carts in the parking lot instead of taking them to the cart slot?

When I went grocery shopping recently and got out of my car there were two pairs of gloves in the puddle next to me (it was raining) and I counted four more on the short walk to he store. Texasbanjo and m06 hit on some of my thoughts. It just ticks me off so much I have trouble being coherent without vulgarity.

Man's inhumanity to man. Same intellect as diapers thrown out car windows in southern California. One of the reasons we left there.

Just plain stupidity. There’s a lot of it around.

Probably because his mommy cleaned up after him all the time and he never learned to be responsible. He has the mentality that people get paid to clean up after him, so he can do as he pleases....or he was kidnapped and left those gloves there as a clue.

Ma used to tie yarn ends to our mitts and feed them through our coat arms and shoulders so we wouldn’t lose them. Might be a solution for these narcissistic types.

Mitten strings. Inuit so you never drop your mitts in the snow.

I also believe that it's time for many more garbage cans. Sure, I can properly wad up the gloves and take them home.
A garbage can would remind me of proper disposal of all the other garbage in my pockets.

You might also find punch holes in the sheetrock at his home.



I love it when they get it wrong and hit a stud.

It would remind you, but then you probably don't need reminding.  I've seen trash dumped on the ground within feet of garbage cans.  Actually watched people do it.  Drives me nuts.  Now that our transfer station is no longer accepting bulk waste and most building/demolition waste for the time being I'm finding it all on the side of my road and in my fields.  One interesting change in litter.  I used to find lots of beer cans, which are at least worth a nickle to the neighbor who, on her daily walk, picks them up.  But now I see lots of nips (airline bottles), which have no return value, are made of plastic, and will take thousands of years to break down.

Back in the 1960's, I went to university with a guy who always showed up in September with the deepest tan you can imagine.
Very well dressed, modern vehicle. Turned out that he walked ditches, picking bottles for 4+ months.

If you don't want the gloves discarded "on the ground", then there should be an appropriate trash receptacle for them near the exits of the stores.



By "appropriate", I mean something that you don't have to "lift the top off" or "push open" by which to dispose the gloves after you've taken them off. Or else you could get contaminated just from throwing them away...

And really hard to fix. Often can't.

People who wear gloves when going out shopping forget that they have to use the bare hands to take them off (unless you have a nurse at home who assist when taking off the gloves) and then all contaminants on the gloves will be transferred to the skin on the hand. It is better to have a handwash when coming out from the shop.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/05/2020:  07:33:20


I used to do geriatric psych nursing. It’s easy to take gloves off without contaminating your bare hands but we still washed afterwards.

Like Dave, I see litter within steps of trash and recycling bins. It drives me nuts as well.

OM45GE - Posted - 04/05/2020:  07:39:27


I walk five to ten miles a day and am dismayed by the amount of litter I see. As Dave does in Connecticut, we have a bottle and can deposit but only for carbonated beverages. I rarely see soda or beer cans but see a ton of plastic water bottles and nips. We had a referendum vote a few years ago to add non carbonated containers to the deposit system. The water bottlers spent a ton of money fighting it and it was defeated.

I carry a mesh bag with me in my walks and picked up all the plastic I came across and recycled it properly. Sadly, I’ve stopped since the covid 19 virus.

Good find twelvefret

That’s exactly what I was talking about.

We had to dispose of the used gloves in the biohazard boxes. That may be part of why seeing them tossed on the ground bothers me so much.

Don't blame you Bill.  Even before the virus started, we have about 400' of road frontage and get a fair amount of trash.  I am always reluctant to pick things up that I know was handled by someone stupid enough to throw trash out of their car.  I don't trust them to ever have clean hands or habits.

There was a nurse showing how to correctly remove dirty gloves on TV last night.



When done right the last move puts the 1st glove inside the second which is inside out.

This kind of behavior is why  C.V. will last longer and do more damage than might occur otherwise than if people had a higher than room temperature I.Q.   And, unfortunately, the USA has an excess of people who, it's sad to say, procreate and produce more of the same kind of selfishness.



Kind of like the 70 college kids from Austin, TX who went on spring break in Mexico.  40 of them came back with C.V.   How many people did these kids interact with?  How many children, adults, grandparents, loved ones have these kids infected due to their amazing lack of intelligence?   How many will get really sick and die just because the kids are "special".



I suppose we must pull out all of the stops to help these poor kids and their families  who have contracted C.V. due to their total disregard of other's?
