Seems like every time I park my truck in a public place, somebody throws at least a soda can in the bed. One time at a ski resort, someone put several bags of trash in it. I went through it and found some envelopes and magazines with the same name on them, and gave them a phone call.

Few things piss me off more than when I find garbage in the back of my truck.

Amen, although for me it is pretty rare.

Happens to me all the time. Sometimes I don't know until I see trash flying out of the back of my truck on the highway.

Yeah, apparently some people are under that impression. It happens to me too.

It's right up there with my next door neighbor always throwing cigarette butts in my yard, driveway, etc.

In the true spirit of that wonderful Amerikan Lady Bird Johnson I welcome the trash in the back of my truck rather than destroying the natural beauty of our little green world. PLEASE, PLEASE...DON'T BE A LITTER BUG!!!

PS - every litter bit hurts.

Slight hijack but related

Whenever I place a dumpster on a jobsite it's like an open invitation to everyone in the neighborhood to get rid of couches, appliances, and just about every other imaginable thing. It pisses me off to no end.

Sweeeeet. I wish I could catch the wifflenuts that do that to my truck.

Tonneu cover (I think I spelled that right) is the best solution..

The only trash in the bed of my truck is mine and the trash of friends.....

The amount of beer and coke cans in the bed of my truck gets insane at times..... At one point I'd just let it fill up and drive to the recycling place.

I don't get it. Got a link?

On another note, one time I was sitting at work on Saturday. The dumpsters had just been emptied the day before, so they were damn near empty except for incidental stuff.

I'm sitting there when all of a sudden I hear a BOOOOOM come from out back by the dumpsters. I peek out the window and see a soccermommie SUV by the dumpster. I figured the dizzy broad ran into it while crusing through the lot. So I'm about to go out there when I notice that they're unloading shit from the back seat into the dumpster. So I start heading out there to chew their asses for unloading their trash into our dumpster, and they drive off before I get there.

I go over to the dumpster to see what they've tossed out, wondering what the hell made that loud noise when it hit the empty bottom of that sucker. I peek in and there's some household junk... and a fucking BOAT ANCHOR! I don't mean one of those little Wal-Mart chunks of metal, either. That monster looked like it came off a tugboat!

I bet the trash truck driver was surprised as shit when he emptied that pig.

Tell us about the phone call. Hopefully you made them come get the shit out of the truck.

I had a friend who had a jeep and often people would throw shit in it. Once they even threw one of those beeper things you get at a restaurant while waiting to be seated, I found it and it started beeping and I yelled bomb and scared the shit out of my 3 friends, those damn pussies

All you needed was the address.

It was a long ways away, or I would have taken it back to them at their home.

I was very polite and kept a neutral voice: "John Smith? While I was skiing at Waterville Valley someone put your trash in my pickup truck. What would you think if I started dropping my garbage off on your lawn at 555 Main Street?"

It caught him off guard. I don't think he'll do it again. Or at least he'll take the envelopes and magazines with his name on them out first.
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 6:42:11 PM EDT
I would get some trash now and then, but a tonneau cover stopped it completely. It even stopped me from throwing my own crap in there. Hell, I even noticed an increase in my gas mileage.

I dont get any that I recall. I'll haul my own trash in it for a while until I come across a dumpster or something. Right now I have 2 2 liter pepsi bottles full of oil in the back of one waiting until I can stop by a place that takes oil for recycling
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 7:48:18 AM EDT
I guess a Ford Ranger doesn't rate as a real truck because in 3 years of owning one I can't recall anyone doing this to me.
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 7:50:28 AM EDT
A tonneau cover will take care of that. Cover the bed so prying eyes can't see. But YMMV. Since my dad has had his 97 Chevy C-2500, no one has thrown anything in his bed, but you can bet he'd be pissed about it.
Link Posted: 8/27/2005 7:57:53 AM EDT
mine is usually full of my own trash. right now, i have a bunch of soda bottles and beer cans back there. after a day of shooting, it'll be full of shotgun shells and empty brass too. i'm fine with people i know tossing little stuff back there, but i want them to ask before putting anything else back there. sometimes after we're hanging out, i'll find a buddy's whataburger trash back there... that stuff blows out onto the road at the worst possible time - usually when there's a cop right behind me.

sometimes at school, people will put full drinks in the back of my truck. one day, there was a bigass cup of coffee sitting back there. right now, i have a big sticky spot where it looks like someone dumped their soda back there too...

I HATE when people do that, I dont have any probs when Im home but when i visit my mom or sister who both live in Apt's it ALWAYS happens

I live in a barracks and in order to get to the dumpster you have to walk right through the parking lot. It used to get so bad that me a few friends would get up early and go sit in our trucks and wait for people to try that shit.

Nowadays when you look at the parking you just see all the trucks on one side of the parking lot....away from the dumpster.

Exact same thing happened to a buddy of mine when he was a student at Texas Tech. He returned the trash to the originator - minus the bags. Those he stuffed up the asshat's tailpipe.
