Did you ask someone to take the garbage out?

Uh oh. Sometimes when Meredith gets a cold or scheduling gets turned around, she asks me: Did you ask someone to take the garbage out?

Because work is very busy, I scramble around to find someone and I come up with the strangest folks sometimes, as you can see (or hear) in this video:



[visual description: R2D2 takes out the garbage can to the curb and leaves. The can opens and two little robots come out, dumping garbage with them. When R2D2 returns and looks in the can, the little robots push him in head first.]

Sometimes I have to use my better judgment and just let the garbage wait until the next pickup...

If only...
Your readers need to know that I totally love garbage day and am bummed when I can't schlep the trash myself. I'm very very proud of the way we accumulate and bag trash.

One of my fondest memories involves the garbage situation during the first year I worked for you. Remember my threats to the hauler? Sweet!

Being your aide has many advantages and advocacy opps. What do you want for lunch?

Meredith- I remember that well with the hauler LOL

Am hoping someone will come up with the ROomba version of a robot who will take out garbage...
