Does this picture make you feel all warm? It does? You are a big dummy. Do you want to buy subscriptions to 23 magazines to help you pass the time in the bathroom? I need to go to summer camp.
That tall patch of weeds in front of the house holds 2 worn tires, a rusty dripping oil can, a spilled box of rat posion, mattress with springs sticking out, a 1966 Honda on blocks, and one of those old plastic 6 pack holders used to snare ducks. You can’t find those pastic holders any more; they stopped making those things. I think I will take it to Antiques Roadshow to see what it is worth.
Looks are deceiving; OK- not mine, I look like a weasel.
In the cafeteria at work, since the company has gone “Green”, there are big posters that start with “DID YOU KNOW” and continue with “We recyle our cooking oil” or “our garbage is sorted to reclaim resources”. Oh really? Did you know your cups are styrofoam, your plates are styrofoam, your untensils are plastic. And guess what, not all that stuff ends up in your garbage to be reclaimed.
I don’t think I would like to sort through garbage to reclaim a plastic fork. If they do pick it up, do they wash it or melt it down to create another plastic fork? If it is the latter which I strongly suspect, it burns more resources creating more pollution.
If I had the recyle contract I would pull out the knives, forks, and spoons, wipe them on my pant leg and toss them into a sorted box for resale back to the cafeteria. This would save a lot of energy and my pants are already ruined by paint. A win win deal would be the recyling of bacteria back into the general company population which would toughen those people up.
