the bin is back

recycle bin

The wheelie bin was missing last Monday, and I am glad to report that we found it this morning.

It was located at about five houses down the street. Someone must have taken it back and used it.

We did not pay the Council $72 for the replacement bin. It is due for another clean as it is quite smelly. I used a twink and wrote the address on all sides of the wheelie bin. (To Don and Rev. Dr. Wu Yi: twink is also known as Liquid Paper or Wite-Out, a generic name for correction fluid.)

Overall, this is not a high class beautiful suburb like picturesque Quincy, people take other people's wheelie bins.

So people try to steal cars in "high class beautiful suburb"s? I told you that the reason my insurance is so expensive is that I live in a bad area.

They might just admiring your BMW. There's no need to jump to the worst conclusion. Not everybody can afford a BMW, you know.

So glad to hear your bin has been repatriated.
You may need to afix some kind of decorative sticker to make your bin immediately recognisable. Do not obscure the Council Logo however.
Maybe time to get your DYMO working?

If they were "just admiring", why did they take the tape off one of the windows?

Thank you Rev. Dr. Wu Yi,
The label machine is Brother, not DYMO. I wrote with 'Twink' on all 4 sides, which are bigger than the labels from machines.
They might just want to see a bit better of the inside of the car, since your tape is not see-through I believe. Or they might just think the tape does not match the state of art of the BMW.

Matching or not, that doesn't give them any right to take the tape off and try to break in. I think it is a pretty logical conclusion to assume at that point that somebody is trying to break into the car and steal it, not admire it.

"Twink" won't last that long, you had better get some real oil based enamel to write your details permanently!
Please get it through your thick skull that DON, like you, does not want his car to be stolen. It is an important means of transportation, not a status symbol!!!

Did you use the proper brand 'twink'? I used "Pentel" Correction Pen, Pentel is a good brand!
