Give some love to ur garbage men...
    #4294325 - 06/14/05 06:22 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

so ya... if you are an early bird like myself, take a moment to give thanks to ur garbage men. really. i wake up at 4:30am every weekday to wake my bf up for work. he's a garbage man. shitty job, tough hours and in the heat like this (94 in NYC), they get REALLY dehydrated. So if you have any extra bottled waters or what-not, leave it out for them. Seriously, my bf almost passed out yesturday along w/ his partner.

People always forget their garbage men.

i've never seen my garbage men. :shrug:

but if i was a garbage man, i'd be a bit wary of a bottle of water that somebody left out... there are a lot of crazy fucks out there.

I'd leave out some bottles of water but I doubt they'd even realize it was for them... not to mention it'd taste like bath water after sitting outside for a while.

BTW, what exactly do you mean by "forget about the garbage men"-- Not to sound like a callous prick but it's not my responsibility to keep them hydrated. You'd think they'd bring a big jug of water with them, eh?

On really hot days, my dad and I used to run out and place a couple ice-cold beers under the bags of garbage, when the garbage-truck was just a few houses down the street.

Always got some HAPPY waves from the garbage men, and they'd be willing to take more bags than you're supposed to put out :wink:

I know a couple of them because I worked at the recycling plant for a bit and one of them went out with my cousin.  Good guys, but they work real shitty jobs.  One guy, Howie, has something like 9 kids he has to feed, so he takes whatever "gourmet hehe" food he can find in the trash, he ate my 12 hour old spring rolls once :smile:.  If you offer this guy a sandwich and he thinks your the greatest :laugh:

knowing your garbage men is great, you can throw shit away you never could before :thumbup:

why doesn't your bf bring a cooler filled with water bottles everyday?

interesting...

garbage men in the city of la get paid close to 6 figures a year and good benefits as well. it's a highly sought after job by some but of course most of the public think it's a shitty job to do. now a days, they dont' even have to get out of their truck cause a hydraulic arm picks up the bins and dumps them into the trucks.

No one forces them into the line of work. They get paid to work a shitty thankless job just like the majority of us. Kudos to the hard workers, but it's their job.

quite = extremely

And they have health benefits that would put anybody's to shame.

Really, they make a nice chunk of change.

My friend Nick is a garbageman during the summer cause he knows he can make a killing.

I'm actually not sure at all. There are two kinds - city employees, and ones that work for companies contracted BY the city. I think my friend joined the latter.

Sidenote: Once back in my old neighborhood I saw two garbage trucks both stopped at a corner. One was stopping to get stuff at 7-11 and the other one was actually picking up garbage outside 7-11. 3 men to each truck. The truck picking up garbage, two of the guys knocked over one of the carts full of garbage so it spilled over and told the last guy to pick it up, being really mean to him. The guys who stopped at 7-11 were like "What's with him?" And the guys who knocked over the cart were like, "He's not union."

Damn that must suck.

hm ya... well not all garbage men are drinkers. my boyfriend gets annoyed when people give him 6 packs of beer because he feels like a dirt bag... cause he doesn't drink all that much at all.

the benefits are amazing. the pay is amazing. and it's all WHO u know. his family is very popular among the political party around here. his dad owns a diesel company so many ties all around.

i don't understand the union shit. my bf is in it. and pretty much loves it because he claims u can pretty much do anything and not get fired.

i gotta say... he has the body to show for all the hard work. it's AMAZING. mm... delicious. not a fat slob sitting at a computer... although i think he wishes he were. lol.

i worry for him. too many injuries. i think the job has inspired him to do more school, 3.8 GPA in Graphic Design. it's great.

so ya... he would bring water but u really need to be running constantly. so it's like a marathon. haha... when they run by they grab a drink and just take a few sips to cool off and that's it. that's how i look at it, plus i'm the only house on the block that doesn't have her garbage cans thrown all over the driveway. they are neatly placed on the sidewalk and they take EVERYTHING.

I'm going to start leaving a sixer for my trash man.
Lots of haters on here....really, picking up trash no matter how much you get paid SUCKS. It stinks it smells, you have trash juice all over your fucking ass..atleast around here. I like this thread and I like the idea. Seriously, think about being a trash man for a minute..

They are nice dude to begin with for the most part.
