So interesting… I love the neighbourhood where I live. There’s something extraordinary about it.
I love to walk around it because that way you get to see things that otherwise would never present themselves. Yesterday I came upon this curious dynamic. An anonymous face off between the message statement in the poster, and whoever dumped the rubbish underneath it. It seemed to sum up a particular aspect of human behaviour for me..The poster requests that people shouldn’t dump rubbish on that spot.. The request is surely not unreasonable, but someone has chosen to pointedly contravene it by deliberately dumping crap right there. Perhaps they felt they were making a point in the name of their perceived personal freedom to do whatever the hell they liked in a "f…..k you" style. One of the most intriguing things about human behaviour is that if you specifically request something, then more than often you might get exactly the opposite result.
