Seen at the Airport

Two of my sisters and I took our parents to the airport this morning to send them on their way to Ireland. We were standing with them as they got their labels filled out and my sister took an old label over to a garbage can to dispose of it, but dutifully refrained from depositing it when she read the sign "Newspapers Only."

A few moments later a guy comes along, pauses by the can and starts trying to put a pop can through the narrow opening. It doesn't fit, so he crunches the can, and tries again. It still won't fit so he starts smashing it until he gets it through the opening.

Newspapers only? Read this.

We're still not sure if the newspaper he had a few moments later was his, or if he pulled it out of the can. You never can tell about some people.
