I am thankful for.... Tuesday




They stink... are messy and HAVE to hate their jobs but today I am thankful for garbage men! You know-- those poor guys (okay to be politically correct.. and girls) that get the unfortunately task of picking up our weekly waste and drive around with it in the back of their trucks all day. Some friends and I were talking the other day about how back in the west, our garbage trucks have arms on them that actually pick up the garbage cans and dump them so there is no manual touching of the germy cans. It was fun to watch BUT that was also the reason why we could only fill the can and have no bags laying next to it. Now out here, the guys actually RIDE on the back on the nasty nasty trucks and pick up our garbage cans and then do whatever they do to it. We can also have a bunch of other garbage bags next to the cans which makes it so nice for us but can't be all that pleasant for those folks taking it away.


So here's to the garbage men in our lives and the homes they stink up after work! SERIOUSLY what would we do without you?!?!?!?
