    Last Saturday I found a half dozen, mostly empty, small (12 oz?) gatorade bottles, a couple empty cups of store-bought coffee, a a plastic bottle of chocolate milk all thrown in the back of my truck.

    I live on the corner of two streets, both of which have schools (elementry school about 0.3 miles away; high school about 1 mile away), so I figure it had to be a bunch of little punks who were too lazy to carry their trash to an actual trash can.

    Anyone else have random trash appear in their trucks?

    Happens to me all the time. For some reason, People see a truck bed, and view it as a trash can. It doesnt bother me. If Im near a dumpster, I throw the shit away.

    Only once... funny thing is, my truck is about 10 ft from a freaking dumpster... I guess they didn't want to walk the extra 5 steps or so.

    Without fail, if I leave my truck overnight at a bar someone has put a beer bottle in it. I will pick it up the next morning and hear it rolling around in the back. I find it funny now since it happens so regularly but it used to make me angry.

    Yeah, the first day I drove my truck into the complex a contractor was walking by and threw his lunch in the back of my truck as I was getting out of it.

    I yelled something pretty similar to "Hey you asshole" at him and shoved his trash back into his hands.

    I guess for some people disrespecting other people's stuff comes naturally.

    Not yet.

    You should just lay in the bed and first thing that flies in, you pop up with a baseball bat or something and go f*ing nuts. Chase them and everything. Don't stop til you see the pee running out of their shorts.
