The garbage collecting guys had no idea

By: pojut | Jan 06, 2016 - 03:10 pm

I live in a townhouse neighborhood that uses "community" garbage areas. They're enclosed by high brick walls, and have gates. People always put all kinds of stuff in there. Fish tanks, sofas, broken TVs...you name it. The poor garbage collectors have to trudge through a mountain of crap all the time. Cut to this morning. I'm walking back from dropping my stepson off at the bus stop, and the garbage guys are emptying out the community landfill. I see them tossing a dusty old electric fan into the back of their trash compactor truck, laughing as great gobs of dust flutter about in the breeze. As I near, I wave, chuckle, and say "Man, people put the craziest shit in there!" A reply. "I know, right? Look at this, some goof put a whole bedframe in here!" They laughed. I laughed. The bed frame laughed. I had put the bed frame and the fan in there not 12 hours earlier.
