It's Officially #a load of rubbish

I don't think anyone else in my flat realizes that we have to take the garbage out. Actually, I know that two of my flatmates do because they were in the kitchen when I came back from taking it out to the dumpsters last week when I got tired of it overflowing.

The trashcan was getting really full over the weekend, and I thought surely someone would realize it needs to be emptied sometime soon.

I was wrong.

Now not only is the trashcan overflowing, but there are THREE additional bags of trash sitting next to it.

If they think I'm going to drag all that trash out to the dumpsters, they are dead wrong.

It's a standoff. I'm not going to be the only one to ever take out the trash.

When they have to wade through a pile of garbage to get to the kitchen sink, they'll realize that I can't always be the only one who takes it out.



Though I can feel it staring at me through the wall....

I can't take it anymore.

I'll just do it myself.

This is going to take two trips.

Start moving the bags of garbage next to their rooms. That should get their attention.

Next time I'm putting it all by the door. I had to make two trips in the freezing wind all the way down to the dumpsters while some mystery liquid ran down my arm.

How funny would it be if some random person just came around and kicked in the door and said, "I heard you haven't been taking out the trash. Now it's time to PAY! "

Except I wouldn't say Trash I'd say Rubbish or Bin Bag, cos I'm British



I'd be almost tempted to do it if I wasn't going to college in a minute!

You should tell the Karma Army Meggie. Someone will come and do it for you then, but on Fridays
