Have you hugged your recycling bin today?
After bidding one another Happy Holidays, I went inside and decided I did not have the heart to call the cops to report someone stealing a recycling bin. The guy even opened up the can to show me that he had nothing bad inside, not that I asked! Although come to think of it I didn't actually look inside and there did appear to be SOMETHING in there. OH well, the guy seemed pretty harmless and I don't think he'll be moving any more recycling bins through the neighborhood any time soon.
Here's my favorite Pomona recycling bin tale: One time my friend who lives the other side of Garey came outside to find two women in the act of going through her recycling bin. She said the one gal shrugged her shoulders, smiled the sweetest smile one can muster when you have no teeth, and said, "It's my first day." The recycler put her arm around her fellow recycler and proudly explained, "She's teaching me the ropes."
Just another on-the-job training program in Pomona.
