Well there will always be crumbs and spilled drinks and stuff all over the place for them to clean up. Taking your cup and tray to the garbage probably isn't going to cost them their job.
And it does make a difference if it is part of the job or all of the job. If there was nothing for them to clean, and their only job was to clean it, then there would be no need for them. But since they do other stuff, they will still be needed so you don't need to worry about them being fired if you throw your trash in the trash can.
Exactly. It's just common courtesy. What bugs me is that there's so many people in this world -- and in this thread -- who have completely lost all regard for anyone other than themselves that they think they can just run around doing whatever the hell they want. Not only that, but they go so far as to create excuses and to spin things so that everyone ELSE is the a$$hole, not them. And, of course, they're all going to get offended by this and accuse me of being up on a high horse, but frankly, they're the ones who need to get off of their high horses and quit acting like the universe revolves around them.
Let me ask this. Do you know for a fact that picking up cups and trays their job or part of their job? If it is, why are we even having this conversation? If it was NOT part of their job then you can be certain you would see signs telling us to take our trash with us. I ask again, do you take your dishes in a restaurant to the kitchen to make the busboys job easier? Do you even tip the busboy separately if you don't?
Rowdy, yes, why the high horse? That poor horse is soon gonna break his back with so many people on it. And no, I'm not on a high horse myself and I don't think the universe revolves around me. No one is calling anyone an a$$hole or making excuses either. Picking up trash is part of those peoples jobs. I don't think it keeps them from their other duties at all and they likely calculate for it. What's interesting is that if everyone picked up their trash the garbage cans outside the entrances or wherever they are would overflow. So now instead of these guys who are already walking through the stands have to pick up the garbage off the floor in that area instead of the stands.
If you can show me proof stating that picking up trash from the stands is NOT in their job description then I will take back everything and pick up my trash 100% of the time in the future.
This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.
