I ask again then, you only throw out your tray because it's convenient? If the trash cans were not in your path to the exit you wouldn't do it? Now who's lazy? Oh and menus and silverware are on the way in to the restaurant, not out of the way. The other things, maybe.

No, I don't not do it to save someones job. Just because I leave something behind for someone else to pick up (whose job it is to do so) doesn't make me lazy. If i didn't throw my trash out at a McDonald's then yah, you can call me lazy.

That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying there is no reason for a person not to (unless he is seriously concerned about the guy's job) since it doesn't require anything extra from you.

And if it's not laziness, and you're not genuinely concerned with the guy's job, then what is it. Sounds to me like you're saying you don't do it because you know someone else will. That sounds a little lazy to me.

But why should I do someone elses job? That's what I'm getting at here. You yourself said you do it as a good gesture to whoever is supposed to be picking it up. Not doing someone elses job doesn't make me lazy.

I don't take my trash out in a movie theater either... I consider it a service that comes with the $35 it costs for two tickets soda and popcorn!!!

And there Sammy goes again, acting like his unwillingness to clean up after himself is actually saving some poor schmuck's job. Un-friggin'-believable. Again, it's a crying shame that some people are so defensive about living like pigs that they make up these convoluted excuses as to why their laziness and tolerance of filth is somehow a good thing.



I purposely spill my soda at the movies so someone can earn an extra buck. :rolleyes:

But why should I do someone elses job? That's what I'm getting at here. You yourself said you do it as a good gesture to whoever is supposed to be picking it up. Not doing someone elses job doesn't make me lazy.

That used to be mine, but I understand there are times people have to leave early - after all, they paid their money, they can leave when they want (or choose to litter if they want :boogie: ). There were times I had to get up ludicrously early and I balanced the last 5 minutes of a game vs. all the time I was going to be stuck in traffic that I could have been sleeping. Did it make me less of a fan? Maybe... but at least I was there and I am sure my abscence had no effect on the Devils effort.

Well I guess this is where we reach a stand-off. You say it's not lazy because it's someone else's job so why should you have to do it. I say it is lazy because it requires no extra effort at all so there is no reason why you can't do it.

Hey if it weren't for my crappy jobs, I wouldn't be able to afford driving there anymore.

I think that when you pay for your ticket, you are paying for the whole game, so if you leave early you aren't getting your money's worth.

My uncle is the worst at this, we went to the last Jets game of the season last year, and we left at halftime. I couldn't believe we drove there to watch the first half, then drove home to see the end of the game on TV. I thought it was a big waste of money, at least I didn't have to pay. I used to go to Devils games with him before I started driving. We were at the banner-raising game in 2004. He kept bugging me to leave early, but I kept telling him they were only down by one and they can come back. Sure enough they tied it (I think Brylin or Rafalski) with like two seconds left.

I agree 100%; for me it was going to see 90% of the game or not going at all. And I always hated it when I didn't have to leave but the ride (ie designated driver) wanted to leave early!

Hey, I've said it before in this thread, I do pick it up sometimes but I don't feel any obligation to do so. I don't worry about it if I don't do it. Even you're doing it because it's easy and convenient. I suppose that means you wouldn't do it if the garbage can was out of the way, wouldn't that be lazy on your part then?

I don't know I might or I might not. Of course there would be less people doing it if they had to go out of their way, but since you don't have to go out of your way, it is such a simple task that I don't see a reason not to throw your garbage out.

I think I'm with Crasher on this one, which related to this post. You paid your money, part of the ticket is the offer to clean up your junk if you wish, sometimes you use that service, sometimes you don't, but it's certainly part of the teams offer to you when you purchase your ticket.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
