Diminished Responsibility

Today's subject is: Office toilet toilet rolls.
It takes no effort to change them, particularly when there are new ones sitting in view, but people do not. It's like smokers who believe that cigarette butts are not litter or coffee drinkers who don't believe that teaspoons need cleaning. People who refuse to take their supermarket trolley to a returns area despite it being a few feet away.

All these people seem to think it is someone else's problemand, god forbid, if you actually call them up on it they abuse you.

It's all part of being in a large group and figuring someone else will clean it up or replace it or return it. Mostly it's all about not getting caught, which explains the abuse if you do actually catch them. Not taking responsability for your own actions is no way to behave. You come over as a complete moron, as opposed to someone who simply made a mistake.

We've all grown up in a well established society, if you don't want to play by the rules (ie a quick thought as to the consequences of your actions) then feel free to leave society behind. That means electricity, water, clothes, food, cigarettes, internet access, etc. If you want to play here, play fair, clean up after yourself, have the strength to say sorry occasionally, admit mistakes. It is all give and take here just be sure that you balance of give and take is even.
