Occasionally you come across something in any nation which is impossible to explain as an outsider.
One such example is something I have seen several times now at events in New Zealand – mainly sporting occasions.
When supporters start a Mexican wave, for some reason it seems to be socially acceptable for people to throw rubbish including plastic bottles and other items – both on to a pitch and looping onto other people. I am at a loss to explain this because the Kiwis as a rule are very polite.
There will always be a minority who of course do bizarre acts but this seems quite widespread and I have seen parents either encourage or ignore their children in doing it. Throwing rubbish is not fun, not clever and could potentially hurt someone.
So I ask you this…Why on earth would people do something this moronic?
