TRASHY TALK

Garbage is a HUGE ISSUE here in the hood.  The flurry of emails included--

1.  Did anyone else not have their garbage picked up this week or is just me?

2.  They missed me because my lid was not completely closed.  SERIOUSLY--it was up maybe an inch.

3.  I contacted the city and asked why---they have pictures proving I did not put my garbage out the night before.   I HAVE proof I put it out the night before---I was the one pushing the can.

4.  This makes the second week in a row for me---I think they are purposefully making life difficult with all of these rules.

5.  Did you know they hit a parked car last year---tore off a large limb on a big tree---ran into a light pole?

6.  There are MANY rules and regulations when it comes to garbage!

FINALLY---you have to see this neighbor's final email


Great news! I am a liar.  The driver stated that I did not put my cart out the night before despite my hallucination that I did.  Other folks that had their garbage missed on Harrison are hallucinating too.  Their garbage cart was not out either.  This is the second week in a row this has occurred.  

They will not come pick up the garbage mostly because I and others on Harrison are lying.  Good to know.  

The City has assured me that the driver has pictures of my AWOL cart and will provide them to me shortly.  I am certain there is a better chance that the city will provide me the coordinates of Jimmy Hoffa's grave than a picture of a missing cart I put out on Tuesday night and is STILL sitting in front of my house.  

WELL I for one--am SHOCKED---WHO KNEW THE SANITATION WORKERS OF THE WORLD HELD SO MUCH POWER!  

I for one am walking the straight and narrow and NOT rattling ANY cans----I like for my garbage to be picked up!

LIFE IN THE HOOD!

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
