Isn't it ironic, don't you think?
So I was leaving work a few days ago and I was picking up Mcdonalds which has become my son's favorite thing to eat, and the most ironic scene unfolded right before my eyes. There was a man in front of me driving a brand new Toyota Prius. You know the "electric hybrid vehicles" that are supposed to use less gas and be better for the environment. Anyway so this guy is waiting for his food at the window and he proceeds to hang his hand out while holding a plastic juice bottle. At first I thought he was going to wait for the Mcdonald's worker to open the window and he was going to ask her to throw it away for him. Apparently she was either taking too long to respond to him, or his plan was different than I though all along. This guy had the plastic bottle dangling from his hand for about a minute and then proceeded to just drop it on the ground, as if it was nothing. HELLO! Your driving an eco-friendly car and you're going to litter! What's the point? I just had to share this story because I thought it was hilarious! And that my friends is what we call irony.
