I had a job to do not long ago where I had to park my truck in the street. It was a quiet neighborhood and the job was easy (although it did take a lot of time), so it was a good day.
I noticed that it was garbage day because everyone had their trash cans out and I could see the garbage man coming down the street in a garbage truck. I could tell that my truck was parked in the way of the garbage man being able to get to the garbage cans of this one home, so I moved the garbage cans down next to the street (where everyone else’s were).
The garbage truck has this arm that comes out of the truck and grabs the garbage cans and puts the garbage in the truck for them. I think that’s nice for them because they have probably the most shit*y job out there.
But the lady whose garbage cans I moved came flying out of her house, “You can’t do that! Make him do his job! I’ve had nothing but problems from this guy.”
I asked her if she knew how hard his job was and that he picks up her garbage every week. Does she care at all about him?
She said, “I do care, but he never does his job, he drives up on the driveway every time.”
I didn’t argue with her anymore, but I should have said that he drives up on her driveway a little bit because she puts her garbage cans up on the sidewalk and not near the street where his truck can get to them!
I ran back to where the garbage man was and told him that I tried to move the cans in the street, but this lady came flying out of her house and told me not to. He said that he knows about that lady and that she’s a nutbag. He said, “All she does is watch us and it’s like she waits for us so she can complain. She complains about me every time I pick up her trash. My supervisor doesn’t know what to do anymore, his supervisor doesn’t know what to do anymore…”
I think some people should invest their time better than trying to make a working man’s job more difficult. What’s the point of creating problems like that? Why can’t she plant a garden or something?
