The day after my last post about the trash problem in my office, I found this scene right next to my desk… now with a giant trash can.
I let this linger for that day and another day after that before really getting sick of it. Still, I never touched the pile.
Yesterday, the smell began wafting towards my desk. It smelled awful, and I started thinking about what I should do about it. Cleaning it wasn’t an option. Instead, I made it clear that my plan was revenge.
Well, somehow the fear of rats got the best of the trashy people in my office. I arrived this morning to find all the trash gone. The catch is that now my trash can is gone altogether.
That’s just as well. I barely used the trash can as it was, and the lack of a trash can will make it much more difficult for people to toss their food stuffs near my desk.
So, I think this is a victory in the war on dumb. Now, if we could only come up with a good strategy against insurgents.
