Early Morning Trash

Now that the elections are over I can get back to complaining about truly important stuff.

As I was lying in bed this morning, listening to the dump truck outside my house, I thought to myself that I've never lived anywhere that the dump truck didn't visit so early. I've lived in quite a few places and it seems odd that everywhere the trash is hauled away super early in the morning. Why is this? It's not like the trash is time sensitive, and if it doesn't get hauled away before noon it explodes all over the yard. These guys already have a bad enough job as it is, why is it they have to wake up super early in the morning as well? Let the poor guys sleep a bit, let the customers sleep a bit, and pick up the trash later in the day. I really don't think its going to hurt anything. And I sure as hell won't find it as irritating.

Since we are on the subject, why can't the mail get delivered a little earlier? The mail usually doesn't show up at my place till after 4:00. Just like I've never had the trash hauled away later than 7:30, I've never had the mail show up before 3:00.

I completely agree. Garbage men are dicks.

For example, not only does mine show up around 7:00 every week, but he also thinks he's saving time by picking up my garbage cans while still moving, and then dropping the cans back down right in front of where I have to pull in to get in my driveway.

This means that when I get home on garbage day, I have to stop my car in the middle of the road, get out, move my recycle and garbage can out of the way, get back in my car, and then park.

For shit's sake man, all I want to do is just park my freakin' car!
