Why is it so hard to clear up your food court trash?

7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

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. Nawaf Abu Ghaz­a­leh UAE man­age­ment just put a po­lite sign up in the lifts, no fines or pun­ish­ments to stop peo­ple who put the whole tower at risk. 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
