Annoyed, slightly.

As you may recall, our trash can recently went missing. We're not sure how.. but we have our guesses.

Anyway, as I was driving through the neighborhood.. I had to check out every one's garbage cans. The neighbor that drives me nuts (read: I want to run him over every time I see him or his kids...) has two trash bins that look like ours. I'm slightly suspicious.

On another note, the annoying neighbor added another notch to his annoying-ness belt.. his son and his friends skateboard in the freakin' road. And to make matters worse, they don't care to move out of any one's way. Let's see here, dude... little kid or car? Who is going to win that battle?

Seriously, who plays chicken with cars?

Ugh. The case of the missing trash can continues. Until I find it, I'm totally blaming the annoying neighbor because he has two trash cans just.like.mine.

While we're on the subject of neighbors, one of the neighbors recently was trying to get the gutter cleaners' attention. They were of Hispanic decent. He says to one of the guys very slowly, "Excuse.... me..... do...... you..... speak.... Ingles?" The gutter-dude's response? In very clear English, "Yes. Why?" I chuckled under my breath and walked away.


Don't worry, S & C-- you're clearly not the suspects OR the gutter mishap.

I don't mean to laugh at your trash can scandal but I love the way you tell it! I hope you find the culprit soon!

We recently bought a new trash can, the kind with the lid permanently attached. Someone keeps taking our new one, and leaving us their old one. Its the same can, but theirs is old and stinky, ours is new, and well....not as stinky yet. We're gonna be forced to paint our address on our new can...sheesh. On a positive note someone cut our front grass this week...for free. SCORE!
