An employee of San Francisco's Recreation and Parks department posted a livid, expletive-filled rant on Facebook this week in response to the high volume of litter he found on the ground in Dolores Park after the weekend.

According to SFist, Mark Lujan, a gardener at Dolores Park, posted the 235-word tirade, which has since been deleted.

"Frankly people just should not be so f---ing awful," Lujan wrote. "The solution is for people to just maybe start giving a f--- or two."

Lujan went on to describe some of the litter he was allegedly forced to deal with, including "a statistically significant number of drug baggies and condoms. Usually found near a pile of vomit."

"People just come here to do whatever the f--- they want, because people are f---ing awful," Lujan continued. "And here's the thing. I AM NOT A F---ING TRASH MAN. That s--- ain't my job. I'm a gardener."

Dolores Park was the site of several LGBTQ pride celebrations over the weekend, meaning more people were there than usual.
