Friday, the garbage fight.

I had a post already in my head and quite a few things that I wanted to tell you about early this morning but then I got into a little argument with the garbage man and got a little behind in my work and so I didn’t have time to write that awesome post.  I guess it will have to wait until next week.  Just one more thing to be pissed at the garbage man for.

In case you’re wondering about the argument, it was really silly.  If you remember I told you that I’ve been doing a lot of yard work around here and that means that I have a lot of yard debris.  Also, we had a minor tropical storm recently so the amount of tree limbs was getting out of control.  Our garbage guys only come on Tuesday and Friday and last Tuesday I filled all four of our cans and still had left over limbs plus all the limbs that I cut this week.

As I said, we only have four cans and when I put them out at the curb they were pretty full.

I still had large mounds of tree limbs so I placed them in piles beside the cans.  I don’t have any pictures of those limbs but they looked similar to this:

Anyway, when the garbage man came this morning I ripped the rollers out of my hair (except for one that I accidentally left in the back) and I threw on MacGyvers size 10 crocs and flew out the door.

I ran up to the guy and I told him that I stacked all the yard debris proportionately as per the website and that I would even help him throw it in the truck if he wanted me to.  But he said he couldn’t take it because it wasn’t bundled properly.  I asked what he meant and he said if we didn’t tie it so that there was a makeshift handle, a snake could be hiding under it and he couldn’t take any chances.


I can’t wait until he comes back on Tuesday.  I found the perfect piece of rubber to bundle those limbs with.  It’s not my fault it looks like a snake either.

Happy Friday, I hope your weekend is nice and relaxing and garbage free!

    • He was a dick. And the worst part is I’ve tipped them several times before when my garbage was particularly heavy due to MacGyver’s construction crap. Never again.
