What do you do with the clippings? Cam strikes again!

I took my mom out to lunch today and this awesome BBQ place that's in the ghetto. I guess everything is different there!

What do you do when you don't have any other place to dump your clippings? ... dump them in the road's storm drain! We were sitting there and i was watching this guy one-hand his 21"er. He was mowing 3 yards right together, and bagging (for some reason??). His bag got full and then I saw him pull the cover off the drain and start dumping his slippings down there! The people behind us gasped and said "look at that!"

Check out the crappy pics! Camera phone strikes again!

Not surprising. though your area there looks rather nice, I've seen far worse ghettos.

When that guy was dumping his clippings like that, you should've stepped outside with your camera and make it apparent that you were taking pictures of him. That would've probably made him stop, and gave him something to dwell on.

I dunno! And it's not like these were nice yards or anything. Maybe those crapsmans only do one thing!

Turn the pictures into the cops. That one cop who didn't do anything should be slapped with a fine too!
