Talkin’ Trash

March 13th, 2013 . by Tim Babb (TANcast's #1 Host/Editor Fan)

I’m only using this as today’s blog because it was too long to tweet…

Someone in my apartment complex keeps putting their trash in our garbage bin (each apartment has it’s own individual garbage bin and recycle bin). Unfortunately there are 3 other apartments so I have no idea who is doing it. But then it happened again yesterday morning. I went to empty the house garbage into what should have been an empty bin, but there were a bunch of clothes in there. I thought to myself, “Damn, this guy is a double douche. Not only is he putting his trash in other people’s bins, but he’s throwing away clothes he could have donated to charity.”

I threw my trash in and walked away. Then I turned around, pulled my trash back out, pulled the clothes out, threw them on the ground in front of the other 3 bins, put my trash back in, and felt pretty good about my petty actions.

I told my wife about it that evening and she said, “Well why didn’t YOU donate the clothes?”

…great…now I’M a co-douche.

    I always find clothes in the recycling bins at my building. The bins have stickers on them, identifying what is, and what is not, recyclable. Because people also throw dirty food wrappers (not recyclable!) into the bins, I don’t take anything out — I just fume about it, then go online and complain about my idiot neighbors in the comments sections of tangentially related blog posts. It’s probably the idiot who yells at his girlfriend. Or maybe the woman who doesn’t vote. And then there are the people who don’t break down cardboard boxes before putting them in the bins, thereby filling the bin with two items, one day after trash day. Grrrr!!!
