Why is it so hard to clear up your food court trash?
The Eid holidays were awesome, I enjoyed spending two days out with my family and it wasn’t as crowded as I thought it will be. One thing that bothered me though, was the behaviour of people in food courts. The disturbing part was families leaving their trash behind in the most awful way when they saw us approaching their table to take it. Burger wraps wide open and left all over the table, ketchup sachets torn open and juice cups dripping all over the floor! I don’t understand why the majority of food court goers never bother to clean up their mess after dining in? How hard is it to take away the same tray to the trash bins? At least pick up your trays and pass it to the cleaners near the trash bins as a courtesy. Please have the decency to think about others. The astonishing part was when I finished eating, I picked up our trays to the trash bin and when I came back the gentleman with his family next to our table smiled to me and said it’s the cleaners’ job to take our trash! We parents lead by example and our kids copy what we do. Please, please, please set an example by being a role model by paying it forward.

I have all my papers in a bag in a cupboard next to the door with my keys, phone and wallet on top in a bowl ready to go. And that’s because with people like this living in the same tower and evidently flammable cladding, there is a real risk of another fire happening any night now. Jillian Dubai
