Energy Drinks Don't Work

We went to the lake for a quick paddle this morning. Fellow outdoor enthusiasts were taking advantage of the Hoosier state's free fishing weekend at the boat ramp chugging Monster energy drinks. Since they made no attempt to make room, I had to do my best not to knock off their heads off with the canoe. When we came back, the hoodlums were gone, but not their cans. Apparently, it didn't give them enough energy to pick them up and throw them into the trash - or, god forbid, recycle them.

I was at the grocers asking a vendor why he needed half of one side of one aisle. He said he had energy drinks and they were selling briskly. He said he had one a day but had to give up coffee. Ruefully, he said he was now addicted to Monster and missed his coffee. As I left he said " coffee is better for you."

Don’t think I’ve ever tried one. Now coffee on the other hand… is the nectar of life!

I don’t think it has anything to do with what someone was drinking, slobs are slobs, it could have been beer, soda, etc.

GeoBoy I am sure your correct. I will say for the State of Michigan we have a 10 cent deposit on all cans of soda and beer. Or as a Michigander I should say pop and beer. So if some chump leaves their beer or energy drink cans on the side of the river or road etc someone usually picks them up. It was a helpful way to find a little extra cash as a kid and while going to college. They have tried to expand deposit to other bottles a few tmes but industry has fought it tooth and nail.

I wish they’d spread the deposit concept. It would help with both litter and recycling our resources.

A lot of my old coworkers would throw their trash, like gas station paper trays, candy bar wrappers, and energy drink cans in the back of the work truck. Those work trucks get dumped daily either at the shop wood lot or at a customers house. Not only is it unprofessional or disrespectful, but it’s straight up an A$$hole thing to do. It takes less effort to put trash in a grocery bag in the cab than it does to lift their lazy arms above the lift gate.

Foxy beat me to it. While you do see empty bottles and cans here in Michigan, it seems to be far less than in states without deposits.

It also appears the worst of the bunch seem to drink Bud Light with their McDonalds!! ;)
