“06880” reader Rich Groblewski wants to drive this point home:
I’m not sure which is worse: spam that clogs up my email box, or the loads of junk mail I get at home.
Now there’s another culprit: flyers left under the wiper while my car is parked at the train station.
With spring quickly approaching, flyers for garage sales, car detailing and landscapers will soon be placed under wiper blades in parking lots all over town.
Yesterday, after getting off the train from Grand Central, I found a flyer prominently displayed under my wiper. It was carefully placed there by what claimed to be an “eco-friendly” property care company.
I assume it was meant for me, because my car does not have a lawn. Because I live in a condo I don’t have a lawn either, but maybe the lawn guy thinks I know someone who does.
Surveying the parking lot, I noticed more of these flyers were on the ground than on cars. I guess those cars don’t have lawns either.
Or maybe they just don’t like companies that pretend to be eco-friendly, while wasting resources the old-fashioned way.
