Can I get a witness that when you have a kid's birthday party, or really any party the aftermath is always A LOT of trash? Well, that was the case for us this Tuesday.
We made sure to have our trash out early that day and so I was surprised that when I came home in the afternoon on Tuesday that it still had not been picked up.
I was then told by the kids that the rest of the neighborhood's trash had not been picked up either.
My mom jokingly laughed and said, "The Garbage man went on Strike!"
We all laughed.
But the truth is that it was no laughing matter.
They were/ARE on Strike!
So let me go into some detail here.
We live on 5 acres of property with 2 other families.
Right now there are a total of 13 of us.
13 people can make for a lot of trash.
So the bags are piling up, and one of the handy barge men here just said not to worry if it goes on for too long we can just pile it all in the back of the truck and take it to the dump.
But wait.... The dump is closed too.
I don't think Barge Men like it when they can't "Fix" the problem.
So here we all sit and wait for the strike to be over.
Apparently, the Waste Management workers feel underpaid, and not appreciated.
I would just like to say to you if you are Garbage Man or Woman in the Redmond WA. area
I APPRECIATE YOU.... PLEASE COME BACK!!
