The garbage man left the fish carcasses from Sunday's outing in the bottom of the trash can for me.  MY GOD - I don't know if I've smelled anything worse.  I didn't get anything on me but the stench stuck to my shirt.  I washed my hands in bleach and they still smell of hot rotting fish goo.

 

After hating him for a while - I decided that his plight in life is far worse than mine and got over it.

 

I know - rookie move not putting the bag on top but still...that smell!

You don't put your garbage in a bag before it goes in the can? You just toss the garbage in the can?

He didn't purposefully leave them in there, did he?

I will not put racks in my can - nfw - learned that one a long time ago.

BTW, how much you give the guys for a Christmas tip???

I didn't tip this past Christmas... There's a noticeable difference. I just didn't happen to see them because the new crew comes so late in the morning.

That'd be a mighty big bag

Dunno - it was on the bottom so would have required a little reaching.  I imagine during the reach he got a face-full and decided against it.  but maybe an honest mistake

Just moved here in Nov - I've never even seen the garbage guys.  So zero dollars.

Sorry, misread your post. So, the fish remains were in a separate bag that he left in the can? 

My garbage guy in a complete wack job, paranoid that neighbors are putting their trash in with his costumers trash. But the price is decent and he does a good job..
