Public Service Disgrace!

This is a letter I wrote today addressed to TAMS.

To whom it may concern,

Every day I do my part to keep our street clean by picking up litter and putting it in the bin.

Naturally I expect others to be considerate and respectful of our suburb.

Unfortunately some people are not thoughtful and don’t share the same values as I have.

Today just after noon I was driving down Canberra Ave. Ahead of me was a TAMS vehicle, number plate 214 508.

The driver threw his coffee cup out as he was driving as if our street is a garbage dump.

I stopped, got out of my car, and picked up the cup and am returning it to you so that you can kindly return it to the tosser and explain to him where he should put garbage.

I might suggest you send him back to Canberra Ave to pick up the rest of the garbage along it, since I’m sure it’s probably also his – especially if he drinks coffee every day throws every cup onto the street so that others can clean up his trash.

Speaking personally, I have better things to do with my time than to clean up after public servant slobs like him. As a concerned taxpayer I feel that it’s an abuse of our money.

It is totally inappropriate while representing a company to behave in such a filthy, disgusting and shamelessly disrespectful way, and I would hope that the public service feels the same way about this.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Baxter

And yes, of course the coffee cup was returned along inside the envelope.
