Cemetery manners, please

Something new has been happening at our lovely Granby cemetery this summer. People are deadheading their flowers and pulling yellowed leaves and weeds and leaving them under the water spigots. Also, someone decided that they no longer wanted their holiday container and a potted plant, and left them alongside the driveway. Really? You think the cemetery groundskeepers should be responsible for taking away your discards? 

This action is similar to those who get their dog waste into a plastic bag, but then leave the bag at the side of the road for someone else to pick up.

Where this kind of entitlement behavior comes from, I cannot imagine. Please, folks, pick up after yourselves. Your mothers are no doubt rolling over in their graves.
