Kyle:  Oh man.

John:  What happened?

Kyle:  I just stepped in some gum.

John:  Oh. No kidding. Let me see. Oh. That sucks.

Kyle:  That does suck man. Let me wipe my foot off real quick.

John:  All right.

Kyle:  Dude, you’d think people would at least have the courtesy to throw their gum in a garbage can, not just leave it on the street.

John:  Isn’t there a fine for that? Isn’t it littering?

Kyle:  I don’t think so. I just think it’s being a bad member of the community.

John:  Yeah. You better get that off before you track it into my car.

Kyle:  Yeah. Here. Just a sec. I’ll catch up.

It is so lame to step in gum! It gets your shoes all gooey and you can track it everywhere.
Kyle’s right, people who throw their gum on the ground are irresponsible.
If you see someone doing this, do you tell them to pick it up?
