You have no soul

There’s a food drive going on in the School of Computer Science at CMU right now. I came in yesterday and found this sign:

Food drive - no soul

I think if I were running the food drive and found the container full of trash, I would have vomited the hot blood of righteous anger in a similar fashion.

    It doesn’t help that the words “Food Drive” are partially covered up.
    It does look like a trash can too.

    Yeah, I don’t take the time to read the partially obscured signs and tiny text on the side of every TRASHCAN I see– I guess I don’t have a soul. Also, why don’t they just put a few more random “food drive” receptacles out there, I don’t think it’s quite confusing enough to have a trashcan sitting next to a box that says “food drive” on it.

    If I saw something like that I would go to the listed location and throw an empty bag of cheetohs through the door.

    It’s disappointing to see that happen to the Food Drive bin. I wonder however if this would have happened if the Food Drive bin was say.. a more visible presence and not appear to be a trash can.

    It’s so convenient! I mean, come on, it’s right there. :P

    Wait…I just saw the full picture. I’m curious, can CMU students not READ? It’s pretty obvious to me that though it looks like a trash bin, the big yellow sign that reads “FOOD DRIVE” would indicate otherwise. Inexcusable, I say.

    Oh, that’s nothing. I caught a guy at work stealing food from the food drive box because he was too lazy to go out and buy lunch. Now THAT’S messed up.
