This monstrosity is a pile of trash. It is situated directly to the left of my desk and is leaning on the right side of my neighbor’s desk. Oh, and it’s also disgusting.
Late last week, it was noted that someone from another section in my building had been using our wastebasket to dump empty cartons of chocolate milk.
Never mind the trash can nearer to that section nor the giant trash bin near the restroom, which can hold ample amounts of trash.
So, we walk into the office today to find this pile of crap. No kidding, the trash is piled twice as high as the trash can is tall. The tower of trash actually rises above the desk’s top itself.
Certainly something must be done about this. I mean, I would suppose it would be my responsibility to make sure the Public Affairs wastebasket doesn’t “runneth over.” However, I have principles that I must follow. In this case, someone from another section decided that they would reappropriate our trash can for their use. So, understanding that they now want near-exclusive use of the trash can and its impressive capacity, I think it’s only fair that I allow that other section to take out the trash.
I left it, and I plan on being out of town for a couple days. When I get back to the office, I’m going to hope I find an empty trash can. At the very least, I’m hoping one of the rodents of unusual size (an R.O.U.S.) carts all this junk away.
