Analyzing Garbage

Garbage

 

I was on my daily bike ride today and as usual for a Monday, I noticed people’s trash on the curb for garbage pick-up day. I’ve thought about this for some time, but the calm of a holiday afternoon coupled with a dew point of 67 degrees has relegated me to a dark place under a fan – good place to write.

Here’s what I have thought: Garbage speaks piles (no pun intended) about its ‘people.’ Take for example the family who dumps their garbage sans bags or garbage can onto their front yard in true landfill style. On the opposite end is the neatly stacked, perfectly balanced and everything-in-the-recycle-bin-is- scrubbed and clean. Then  of course is everything in between.

My musings while biking have led me to imagine correlations between the people and their garbage. Here is what I have deduced thus far.

DESCRIPTION OF GARBAGE AT CURB

SITUATION

MENTAL STATE OF OCCUPANTS

 

Entire contents of home/apartment spewed in an angry-looking heap covering entire front lawn

 

 

Eviction, divorce, roommate thrown out  

 

We’re talking some serious anger!

Partial contents of home thrown by curb somewhat slovenly

 

Sloppy spring cleaning

Depressed, seriously laid-back, careless, lazy

‘Normal’ amount of garbage at curb, some in garbage can in bags, some in just bags, larger things not in containers

 

‘Normal’ situation; garbage is low priority

Basically well-adjusted, somewhat lazy

Pristine presentation: the ‘perfect’ garbage

I would not dare step foot in this household

We’re talking some serious OCD

Please do ponder a bit about your garbage observations. I would love your ideas and comments

No one ever reads the same book. We all react to the written word differently. The following are my opinions regarding the books I have read.
