Can Dilemma-Update

Thank you everyone for all your helpful and/or humourous ideas on how to throw away our broken trash can.
Gary Plan B won the prize for the funniest idea.
Gary said, " Call the police and report it as an abandoned stripped vehicle and have it towed."

Well I am happy to announce that the can is gone.

The only thing that my husband did was put it at the bottom of the driveway early this morning.
No note--nothing just one poor old empty can.

I had totally forgot about my thieving good neighbours who grab anything that is not physically nailed down here in the 'hood.

This just proves the old saying:
One man's trash is another man's treasure.

So thank you everyone for giving me a great big smile today.
And Chesapeake Bay Woman I'll be calling you if I need to do any late night shopping.

Bear((( )))

I had problems throwing away a cracked plastic garbage can. I had always filled it with branches and leaves, so the garbage man thought it was still in use - even when I turned it on it's side (empty) and left it at the bottom of the driveway.
Finally, I got an oversized plastic garbage bag and smushed it up inside there. Nobody knows what goes inside plastic garbage bags!

I'm a good driver of a getaway car and I can give you a few tips on how to approach a scene. But as soon as anyone shows up to confront us, we're toast. I freeze like deer in the headlights.

Betcha your neighbor is now the proud owner of a broken trash can. We used to know a guy who made weekly "runs" through the wealthy neighborhoods looking for bargains set out at the curb. You know what he discovered? When rich people throw something out...its REALLY useless. He had better luck in the middle class neighborhoods. (at least thats what he SAID). lolololololol
