Yoof of Today!

Another fantastic day, opened the bedroom curtains to see a beautiful blue sky, golden trees and a frost covered field – great! Only to be marred by the chip paper, cans of coke and fag packets left by the yoof from the night before!
I love where we live but the past couple of months a dozen or more 10-17 year olds have decided that hanging around outside the playing field as opposed to inside it is the coolest thing to do. Now I know you’re thinking nimby but in my defence I don’t actually mind them hanging about too much. The oldest one turns up in a car and the others bum fags off him and the girls flirt with him just to get to sit in the car when it’s raining. If the music gets loud you can ask them to turn it down without being sworn at, and last night when I thought they were going to put a firework in the bin I went and wagged my finger and gave them my sternest old lady voice and they were very contrite. Ok so what’s my problem then? THEY LEAVE LITTER EVERYWHERE and it really depresses me especially when there’s a bloody bin right next to where they’re congregating (the same bin they were keen to put fireworks in!) So most mornings armed with rubber gloves I go out and pick it all up. This has two positives, one it makes me feel better and two all the old people walking their dogs early in the morning and have walked past said litter coz they don’t live opposite it feel guilty and start picking it up too. I’m working on the basis if enough people (who get up earlier than me) feel guilty and start to pick the litter up as they go past, I’ll just be able to open my bedroom curtains and look out at the beautiful, litter free place that I live without feeling my blood pressure rise!
Now that I’ve made myself sound like a complete TOG I’ll sign off…hey ho it’s Friday tomorrow x
