That Damn Banana!

My friends can tell you, the weirdest shit always happens to me.

This is going to be a short post, just wanted to share my experience last Friday.

I was on my way to work, and I was eating a banana that I had grabbed when I was rushing out of the house that morning. I finish my banana and I am sitting at a stoplight, so I threw the peel out of my window into the grass. Nothing wrong with that, right? It is biodegradable, some animal or bugs will get a nice snack, no harm done.


Next thing I know I am being pulled over by a state cop, who proceeds to inform me that I have been pulled over because I just LITTERED! I was so confused, never in a million years would I think a banana peel would be considered trash, I mean it is biodegradable. When I think of littering I think of actual trash- paper, plastic, foam containers, etc.

Not only did the very nice officer educate me on the fact throwing food out of your window is littering, he also gave me a ticket for $140. Happy Friday to me!!!!

Never again will I throw anything edible out of my window. Lesson learned.
