Your intentions may be good, after all, you think you're helping out needy people. Unfortunately, if the bin is labeled as a Clothing Donation Bin, then that's all they want, and that's all they'll use. The majority of the time the non-clothing items will be thrown away. Most charity donation organizations are not equipped to handle non-clothing donations. There are charities that welcome almost anything, so please use such charities, and keep your good intentions out of a landfill.

It takes a very skilled driver to pull up next to a gas pump. In fact, most drivers endure years of intense training to learn the delicate art of gas station etiquette. Unfortunately this particular driver is only in year 1 of the 6 year gas station parking course. With time he will learn, until then you can expect more of this type of behavior.
