Vile Things Compared
Recently a Press-Republican editorial mentioned that some homeowners in the vicinity of Wall Street in Plattsburgh were really upset. Used hairnets were ending up in their shrubbery. (Cheers & Jeers: 5/26/08) Apparently employees of a local business were tossing aside these items instead of using a proper waste receptacle.
To quote the PR: “To some people, a used hairnet might not seem such a vile thing. To others, though, it would be as welcome as ... well, a used tissue, let's say.”
Yup, used hairnets and facial tissues. Vile things. Real health hazards.
