Things That Piss Me Off, v. 345,823,783

The garbage men just took my GIANT box FULL of paper recycling. And tossed it in the trash. I collapsed EVERY. SINGLE. Christmas box. I recycled EVERY. SINGLE. shred of paper I could. And I carefully saved it all. And I had a huge box full. And I dragged that bitch out to the curb.

And now it is in a landfill.

Hate.

P.S. I didn't do anything on my To-Do list before posting this. Resolution: Officially Broken.

Yay for the Yap readers! We hoped you couldn't last on that "work first then blog" resolution!!

Ohhhh, piss. I would be livid. And would TOTALLY call the trash men "into my office."

see if you would have just listened to me, you would still have your resolutions in tack. Feeding andrew, done!

At least they took the box. Our garbage men are SOOOOO picky. And wimpy. If I can drag a can out to the curb, it's certainly not "too heavy" for them to dump it into the truck!

But hey--one of my resolutions was to spend more quality time with my kids. And as I type, my daughter is shrieking, "Put the headband on the baby!" And I am studiously ignoring her.

Hell I just burn all that crap. If I recycled that shit my barrel would be full in a week.

Ack! Ack ack ack! Our dump has an area for stuff that is perfectly good, so you can leave it there for someone else to take for free. Some friends of ours brought over a ton of great stuff including a bicycle and a working computer and a bunch of baby equipment---and as they were driving away after looking around a bit themselves, they saw a backhoe scooping it all up and dumping it into the trash.

Hahaha! Love that you've already broken a resolution.

It is so annoying when the recycling gets messed up. Here, instead of one large bin, they give us 3 boxes to put our stuff in, and then only pick it up 2x a month! I can fill those suckers up in 3 days. Grrr.
