What’s so gross about that trash?

October 9th, 2008

Most people at my large apartment complex drive their trash to the compactor.

But they don’t trunk it. Nope. Something about their trash is so unappealing, they must put it on the car hood. And then, well, as you can imagine, it’s a challenge for them to maneuver over 76 mountainous speed bumps on the journey. Not to mention trying to see over the trash. Yes, some residents put it on the driver’s side. I laugh out loud on occasion.

As you may guess, trash ends up on the road. And some unkind folks leave it. It’s called litter. So, for trash trunkers like me, the apartment roads become an obstacle course.

If you’re one of these people who refuses to put trash in your car trunk for a very short drive, please tell me why. Does it leak? Are you that afraid of odors? I haven’t had a problem. I promise.

But really, if you do this, please explain it to me. I’m curious. I won’t yell at you.
