Small bottles of whiskey all crushed up and plastic,

Butts in small pile looking so tragic,

used condom wrappers and toothpicks with string,

These are my least favourite parking lot things...

It may be because I'm a drooling simpleton with the attention span of a demented gnat, but would you mind explaining everything in words of one syllable. 140 chars max.

While I still haven't encountered the supposedly ubiquitous empties (possible due to being generally unobservant), I was in a liquor store in CT yesterday for reasons and saw the minis being sold in like twenty packs. Never seen that before, but certainly conducive to mass consumption and mass litter.

Scrunchies; I see them everywhere. How does one lose a scrunchie? The only plus is that the cat loves to play with them.

I occasionally lose one when when taking off hats or hoods in the fall/winter/spring.

I've seen a recent nosedive in the number of floss picks, for obvious reasons, but not in those minibottles, especially because we aren't doing bottle deposit right now. I took a walk around my neighborhood today and picked up an astonishing amount of litter, including (you guessed it) a Fireball mini-bottle.

They must buy only big bottles around here. I've never seen the minis. I pick up cans and bottles around my gated driveway a few times a year.
Hair ties just slide off my hair sometimes. I must not be the only one cause I've seen hundreds in parking lots.
