Stolen trashcan

Page 6 of 7  

I have a bit of empathy for you, but it's moderated by your apparent bigotry and prejudice.

On my street, Wednesday is trash day.
Since it is often windy, here in Texas, it's not unusual for other people's trash can to blow into my yard.
If they are still in my yard on Monday I keep them. NO, they don't have street numbers painted on them.

missing.
Whenever I have purchased (or had issued to me by my local government) a trash can I have taken two spray paint cans with contrasting colors, and marked the can up, all over, in a pretty distinctive manner. If it does blow away I can identify it visually several hundred feet away. None of them have ever gone missing, but if one did, and I suspected theft, I'd just drive around my neighborhood on trash day looking for it.
Of course if the thief lives more than a couple of miles away I probably won't find it for a few weeks, if ever.

Well, where I live the commie socialist garbage haulers all issue their customers their very own trash cans. So nobody has to steal one because they get theirs free from their garbage hauler.

Where I live, the private garbage hauler contracted by the township issues everybody their very own garbage cans. So nobody has to steal one because they get theirs free from the garbage hauler.
The truck can pick up the can itself, thus saving the hauler personnel costs.

Don't use a trash can. Tell your trash hauler you need to sign up for the toter on wheels. Nobody wants to steal that. Your trash can was too pretty.

Unless you have a badge and a warrant, the only answer you are likely to get is 'kiss my ass', punctuated by the door hitting you in the face. <I> certainly wouldn't show receipts to some random soul on my doorstep. If they think I have something of theirs, call a cop.
Now having said that, if one blew into my yard, I may knock on a few nearby doors and ask if they are missing one, or stake it down in my front yard with a 'found' sign on it....

Garbage men probably tossed it in retaliation from being mouthed off at.

Paint your trashcan dayglow pink or rainbow stripes. Nobody will steal it.

For a thread that started out mostly misunderstood, it sure has grown legs.

Probably some Obama supporter. Who would prefer us to recycle everything.

Thankfully, I live in a neighborhood where stuff seldom grows legs. I have a day job, so waiting for the trash truck and meeting them is not an option. They can show up anytime from 0600 to about 1400, depending on how many times they have to go empty the packer truck that week. I push it out when I get home from work on Thursday, and when I get home Friday, I check to make sure it got emptied, and pull it back up the hill to the notch in the bush beside the garage door where it lives.

right, I'm going to get up and meet them on a road where I can't even see my neighbors' houses if there are leaves on the trees. Let someone steal the giant trash can. Who cares? It belongs to the garbage hauler anyway.
