Each and every week when the garbage truck(s) are making their rounds, I do tend to be a bit of a Nosy Norah, and peer out to see just what they’re doing.
I mean, they make enough noise. It’s not like I have to make an effort.
Some sort of weakness I’m sure. Or maybe I just want to see if they’re actually taking the crap I’ve put out there.
This week there was a fair amount of crap. It was “bring out yer crap” week, along with the usual recycling and garden waste pick-up. Plus of course, actual garbage.
Many trips to the curb. And it’s something I only do in the mornings, since I have very little desire to clean up after some wayward racoon or coyote, who might happen to smell something that’s too hard to resist in with our refuse.
What I expect, is to see all the containers at least back on the grass, even though stacking them would be a bonus.
…will never do.
I think I might have to make a call. I totally “get it” if my recycling isn’t quite in the proper container. I mean, there are rules. But here, the chimp has made the effort to empty the containers, but somehow didn’t have enough strength left over to catch them with the toe of his boot and punt them back onto the grass? I’m not asking for much. Just give them a kick.
We do have a few cars go by from time to time. Not too wise to leave them on the “carriageway”.
Anyway, it’s been a bit of a hot one today, but I did want to take down our old clothes line since the word is, the boys will be coming Monday or Tuesday to start on the evestroughing, soffits and facia. We’ve been patiently waiting. But patience are wearing thin.
Where the clothes line once was mounted will be siding, so it had to come down. Plus, it’s been up there for over twenty years, and was starting to get a bit cantankerous. Came off much easier than I had anticipated.
The jury is out as to whether any work will get started on Monday. I don’t even want to go there.
Oh, and look. The slightly smarter than a chimp fellow who did the recycling didn’t have any issues with putting everything back.
Not that difficult. Yes, it was a hot day. Just keep hydrated. That’s all. And you know, don’t be a lazy jack-ass.
I guess that’s all I got. Just some mumblings about incompetent people. I wrote down the number of the truck. Probably should have called earlier. Most likely now I won’t bother.
I’ll be watching.
Storms a comin’. Took some effort, but I put the Merc in the garage. Supposed to get hail. Just as soon not pay that deductible.
Keep it between the ditches, and thanks for stopping by.
