Rules Should Apply To Everyone



You know better. Flatten boxes when you take them to the recycle bin. Then it won’t be full when I get there. Return the shopping cart to the store or the cart return. It’s just the right thing.

Pick up after your pet. I don’t want to step in it, see it or have it draw flies. I pick up after mine; you can too.

Check before you open your car door. Will it hit mine? When entering or exiting a building, check to see if there is anyone behind you. If so, hold the door for them.

Don’t throw away aluminum cans. Not when our Humane Society can use the proceeds. The Dalmatian bins are located at town hall, the Rumsey Dog Park, the Humane Society, and the Humane Society Thrift Store.

Don’t litter. I still don’t understand why anyone would pitch a can, bottle, a fast food container, glass or anything else out of a car window. Do you not own a trash can at home? Can you not look for a Dumpster? Better yet, have a litter bag in the car.

Why do you think it’s OK to dump your junk in our desert? Sofas, refrigerators, tires, mattresses, air conditioners, even a tall cat scratching post (showed up at the end of our street last week), these things are not decorative. Payson is not your dump, it’s my home.

Why does leaving a dirty diaper on the side of the road, in a parking lot, on a counter in the ladies room, in a shopping cart or in the park make sense to you? It’s disgusting and you know it.

When your yard sale is over, gather up all your signs and dispose of them. The sale is over, signs should be gone.

Why don’t all these rules apply to you? They apply to me.

Use this rule of thumb: If you don’t want anyone to see you do something, bet you shouldn’t be doing it!

Show courtesy, respect and kindness at all times. Use common sense. Always smile.
