Personally, you can do that, but a business must dump stuff considered
contaminated. Flood, fire, for anything in the store goes, long term
power outage required disposal of perishables.
Some years ago a liquor store in town had a fire. Everything had to
go. The good news, a friend of mine ran the town dump at the time.
Dumpster diving is pretty common in NY, it doesn't take a storm.
Speaking of, I had walked out of a gas station. Heard this cry for help
coming from behind a fenced in area, where the dumpster is kept.
Skeptical, I walked over cautiously thinking it may be a set up to get me
mugged! Anyways, a woman said please help me. She was in the dumpster,
there were some crates in front of the dumpster. She was a VERY large
woman, probably 350lbs +, stuck in the dumpster. Apparently she was trying
to retrieve cardboard boxes, reached in too far, and fell in, and noway to
I let the fire dept handle it, didn't want to get dragged in there, she
might have eaten me!
That's true. I was drving down 2nd avernue in the 20's and I saw a
big, though not very tall dumpster filled almost to the brim with
books. I parked. There were 3 or 4 guys in the dumpster gooing
through the books and I joined them. They were on just about every
topic. Other people stood and watched and some of them would point
to a book now and then and ask one of us to get it for them.
I got 15 or 20 books that day, and I went back 2 of the next 3 days
and got 15 more, all very interesting. The pile of books kept going
down, (so there were far more people doing this than the four of us
the first day) although whoever was cleaning out a warehouse might
have been adding more.
LOL I still raid dumpsters in Baltimore, expecially for tv's and
electrical things -- one year I found five good electronic things in
the one nearest my house the day after Xmas -- which I can usually
fix if I actually take them. Some are barely broken. But when I'm
serious and the dumpster is deep, I bring a 3 step step-ladder, with a
weight attached to some nylon twine attached to the ladder. I throw
the weight into the dumpster, climb up the ladder and climb in, then I
pull the ladder in with me. When it's time to leave I do the
I almost forgot. Once I found an electric wheelchair next to the
dumpster, not just a scooter but a medical one, with a joystick and a
headrest and something special for one leg . I couldn't push it home,
and I couldn't handle it when I pushed the stick forward and walked
behind it, so I had to sit in it and ride it home (300 feet) The
battery was fully charged! I called a guy I know of who runs a
medical supply house and he came over and looked at it and said it was
3000 dollars new and still worth 1000 dollars. He told me to call
the MS society (or was it the MD society) and I did and they came and
got it, and they'll lend it to people who need it.,and they also took
one of those bars that hang over the bed so a person can pull himself
up, which was there too.
I think I had seen the guy who used it. He'd be outside sitting in
the sun once in a while when I drove by, sometimes with another guy in
a wheel chair. I waved but never stopped to talk. I think he died
and the apartment building janitor just threw the thing away without
thinking someone could use it. It just needed replacing of some of
the foam rubber and its cover.
The Federal Government is on the case.
Emergency regulations promulgated by FEMA now require dumpster owners to
post a sign on their dumpsters listing the dumpster's contents with regard
to edible items, clothing, and other emergency needs. This should eliminate
the kind of problem you encountered.
Further, OSHA has taken it upon itself to issue similar regulations
regarding the ADA - Americans with Disabilities Act. When a dumpster
contains victuals or other needed items, it will be incumbent on the
dumpster owner to provide a wheel-chair accessible ramp.
Compassion usually involves empathy and assistance for those experiencing
adversity through circumstances not of their making.

Yes they do. It's anyone who disagrees with them.
Take Obama. To his supporters, his policies are so clear, cogent, and
convincing that no one smarter than a muskrat could find fault. That these
fools DO object, when there's no rational reason to do so, MUST mean that
their objection has to do with race.

How about someone that judges others by their race instead of by their
merits and flaws.

I think you may have meant to write "someone who" but still, you haven't
defined "racist". You wrote a lot nothing that proves you
have no idea what the word actually means. Jokes in bad taste don't
define "racism". Now let's see if you can define "race"? ^_^
No silly, you continue with your P.L.L.C.F. codswallop when I asked you
for your definition of "racist". It's typical of your ilk to deflect
and refuse to answer simple questions. Admission of the correct meaning
of your favorite Politically Incorrect labels for those you oppose in
the arena of political ideology, will prove that you use the words in a
manner that is incorrect. You can never admit that you are wrong and
quite ignorant in the meaning of the language you should be proficient
in. It might lead others to think you're a complete idiot and we can't
have that, now can we? ^_^
