    They may have been told not to do so. Also lots of garbage crews are being cut down. I remember when there used to be 3-4 garbagemen per truck now you are lucky if there are 2.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    To be fair, I've heard the garbageman's side of the story. They overload their schedules, underpay them, and don't give them enough people. With the dumpsters, people have a nasty habit of putting stuff loose in there and the garbageman doesn't have time to go chasing it down unless he wants to get behind on his schedule.

    Technically, wind blows. I'm just saying.

    My gripe today: People who walk around talking on their cell phones and pay no attention to their surroundings. (... and then give ME a dirty look when they almost run into me.)

    My gripe is that I have no work out partner. I just want someone to go to the park and use kettlebells with.

    Not being able to find ground beef that isn't 90/10 or leaner. GRRR!

    My grip today - that a boss at work turned out to be "Emperor Palpatine" from Star Wars....a snake in the grass and as crooked and evil as they come.
