I have a question for you. How many of you after watching a movie pick up their own empty boxes of popcorn and coke and dispose of them in the trash cans outside? Raise you hands please.
Why is it whenever a movie ends, the cinema looks like a war zone? Empty coke cups flying everywhere, smashed popcorn trail all over the place, trash wherever you look. What happened over there, the war of the worlds with hooligans?
Can’t you dispose of your own trash? Can’t your highness just pickup the box of popcorn you munched on and just throw it in the trash can? A very civilized move I must say, because leaving your own trash behind you is nothing short of disrespectful. There are cleaners you say? So what! Can’t you make their job easier by helping them out?
My husband and I collect out trash before we collect our belongings when the movie ends. We carry it all the way with us until we find the poor cleaners with bags open and we put our trash and filth in there. We are still the same people, our dignity is intact and our pride is unscratched. There is nothing wrong in picking up your own trash and disposing of it. Expecting others to do it for you by default is what’s wrong.
Through your trash out people. Be classy and pickup after yourselves. 3n el qalaq 3aib 3lekom!
