so last night i put my trash out.
it included 2 trash barrels with bags in them and a recycling bin overflowing with bottles and cans from Saturdays party.
i even had beer boxes filled with beer bottles next to it.
about 8:30 last night i hear a car door and then notice the vehicle idling in front of my house for what seemed a long time.
so i go up stairs to look out and see who is sitting in front of my house.
there was a full sized dodge van sitting there.
In the front passenger seat was a large woman and a child seat mounted between the front seat with an infant in it.
the slider was open and there were two seats along the drivers side facing the passenger side. in one seat was another large woman and in the other seat was another child about 2 years old.
the inside of the van was stacked with bags and boxes of bottles and cans.
there was a guy going thru my recycle bin and he took the whole thing and put it in the van so the lady in back and him could go thru it.
meanwhile another woman was going thru my neighbors trash.
she brought over a stack of what looked like plastic plates from their trash and handed them thru the passenger side window to the lady there.
she then went back to their trash and grabbed a trash bag out of the barrel, brought that over to the van and handed the whole bag thru the passenger side window. the woman in the passenger seat sat there and dug thru it with it in her lap.
amazingly, when they were done they put everything back on the curb nice and neat.
but i swear they spent more in gas with the van idling than they found in bottles.
