I love Australia Day. Every year I get together with friends and have a picnic at the lake. This year however, when we arrived early in the morning at one of our favourite spots at Lennox Gardens (the park behind the Hyatt Hotel ), we were confronted with what I can only say would have to be the most disgusting party-leftovers I have ever seen anywhere!

It was unbelievable! It was literally like a rubbish tip. Nearly every bench and barbecue in the area was covered in left over beer bottles, discarded packaging, scraps of food and other rubbish. It was not just a few bottles, in one case there would have been over 50 glass bottles alone just tossed 2m from the bench! I mean could you imagine people just sitting at the bench drinking and then tossing the bottle over their shoulder? I mean how could you just do that? It’s like being that lazy that you defecate in your own car and then are just so lazy that you couldn’t be bothered cleaning it up so you just keep driving around for weeks with it still on you back seat… How lazy can you get! Haven’t they heard of the term s#$%*ing in your own nest? How could you have a party like that?? How do people just do that??? Don’t they care??
I have been a site coordinator for Cleanup Australia Day for a several years and I have never seen anything this bad. We ended up using some left over Cleanup Australia Day bags and cleaning the mess up.
Ironically, while we were cleaning up. a young guy turned up. He said his “brother” was one of the guys responsible for the mess. His brother? Sure….it was probably HIM! He came back because he had lost his car keys. He was still wandering around 5 hours later looking for them….evidently he had not found them….neither did we…. I guess that’s Karma for you….
