What rub­bish

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

Is any­one else dis­gusted by ad­verts which show peo­ple sweep­ing rub­bish off a ta­ble on to the floor and a sports­man throw­ing a used take­away cup he has just fin­ished drink­ing from on to the play­ing field? How can we ex­pect young peo­ple to learn about us­ing rub­bish bins when ex­am­ples of adults on TV are dis­play­ing such loutish be­hav­iour – es­pe­cially a sports­man in this sports-mad coun­try? I am an 80-year-old woman with arthritic/mo­bil­ity prob­lems, but ev­ery time I go to the shops, us­ing my walker, I am up­set by the lit­ter all along the pave­ment. It shouldn’t be up to old peo­ple like me, who can’t bend down, to be con­sid­er­ing tak­ing my ‘pick-up-stick’ and a plas­tic bag to tidy up af­ter lit­ter louts. Ad­ver­tis­ers, start set­ting a bet­ter ex­am­ple as this is not ‘cool’ be­hav­iour. Ju­lia Clyde (Pukekohe)
