This is a friendly reminder asking those late night funsters who wish to imbibe lager during their ferry trips back to our idyllic island home to please discard their cans in the bins.
Otherwise it is possible that a school kid on the overcrowded early morning ferry might put her or his bag down on the ground beside his or her seat where the half-empty can has spilled its contents overnight and thus inadvertently soak his or her bag and everything in it – gym clothes, homework assignments, school books – in whatever shite the asinine beer drinker had selected for his or her evening tipple.
And it is also possible that the child might pass the sodden bag to her father upon arrival at Central, minutes before the school bus is about to arrive, and ask, ‘Why is my bag wet?’ and inadvertently drip stale beer all over daddy’s trousers, socks and reading material.
So, top tip for late night revelers – deposit your sodding cans in the sodding bins, you sodding arseholes.
Cheers.

Pretty hopeless asking late night drinkers to take care.
Whoever did it probably doesn't remember taking the ferry, let alone spilling their beer.

But a complaint to the ferry company is warranted -- the ferries should be cleaned before the first morning run, surely.

Not exactly a friendly reminder...

That depends on the next level of escalation.

I agree the effort to post here is equivalent to an email to HKKF. But they would probably remind him to check the place before you sit, have an eye on your kid and report irregularities to the staff rather than tarnishing their hard-earned reputation for cleanliness (as confirmed by the cockroach faction)

So while they wouldn't give a damn, we empathetically share the pain, don't we? And it's not that unfriendly. He even wrote "arsehole", come on!
