Coming or Going?

We have neighbors who are relocating to Denver. I quickly snapped this shot of their trash (yes, it was out for the garbage pick up) this morning as I left for work. This is not stuff which was loaded on the truck.

I was shocked last night when I saw all the empty boxes lined up for the trash collector. Also included: a chair and a garden hose.

I hope that the men who pick up the trash were able to salvage the chair, which looked fine; maybe just needed some reupholstering. The garbage can is on the far right mostly hidden by boxes.

Instead of moving out, this couple looks as if they just moved in. Tonight the truck was still in the same place, but the “trash” was gone.

I wish I had called 1-800-FREEGAN.

Don’t ReUse a Priority Mail Box to Mail Anything!

The USPS has warned a good citizen that he is breaking federal law by re-using a USPS Priority Mail cardboard box in this Denver story. This is stupid.

I once had my mail held at the local post office during a vacation. When I returned, the postmaster handed me my mail in a small cardboard container. I left the cardboard container in the garage, and my cat used it for a bed. When she curled up, she fit perfectly in it. Was that misuse of federal property?

I’ve also reused stamps if they weren’t canceled. I’m in big trouble now.

Thanks for the link, Bill.
