Ah, You Tricky Trashman

I went out to the curb this afternoon to bring in the trash bins for my mom, and the garbageman broke the handle off one of them.

How the heck do I throw it out?

When I was growing up, I used grab onto the railing of the stairwell and pretend I was a trashman.  Deep down, I hope this is something they do on purpose as a joke – a way to give them something to look forward to each week when they come by and see it out there, empty.

I mean, I bet my mom spends weeks trying to get them to take it away.
