New Olympic Event....

So when I posted my status to my facebook page yesterday, I had no idea that I would receive so many responses to it.

I mean, I thought everyone had (at some point in their life) sprinted down the driveway while screaming at the snaggle toothed (did I just say that?) garbage man to WAAAAIIIITTT!!!!!!!!

Oh wait. Did I not mention that part yesterday in my post? Nope, I didn't. But let me tell you, it was all good until he smiled his big ole' snaggle toothed grin at me. At that point, I was wanting to sprint the OTHER direction, because he seemed WAY too okay with the fact that I was running to him with a flailing trash can behind me.

Which brings up another point. Are those things not impossible? The trash cans.....or dumpsters or "waste containers" or WHATEVER they are that we are paying to rent every month. Oh they're nice and big, and eliminate the need for 14...I mean 4 small trash cans. But DARN those things are hard to maneuver. Especially when they're full of smelly, stinky garbage.

And I guess it doesn't help when you're trying to move it at the speed of sound while trying to yell over the noise of the trash truck compacting trash across the street. I mean, I can never get the darn thing to just ROLL on the wheels it has. Somehow, it's always trying to do a wheelie behind me while I'm trying to drag it down.

I'm just hoping that I don't end up on someone's submitted video to "America's Funniest Home Videos". Unless, of course, they're willing to share their winnings with me. I'm just sayin'.
