Live by the three-second rule as I might, I totally agree that some trash is better left on the floor. Not all dropped foods need to be recovered. Not all things discarded need to be retrieved. Not all trash is really trash, but sometimes you just have to let things be.
Let’s say I’ve learned that by spitting out some of those three-second rule retrievals. I know you know what I mean. We are co-conspirators.
For folks like me, who can’t stand a crooked picture on a waiting room wall, and who once upon a time cleaned up a third-grade classroom during a parent-teacher conference because to wait in that mess was more than difficult, I know that some messes are not for us to clean up.
I picked up paper and pencils off the floor and cleaned out desks of crumpled papers while the teacher was saying, “We clean the classroom on Fridays.”
