My PH last Thursday was my bin men. And the Thursday before, and before, and before........ And probably next week too. I must write a grumbly letter to the council, but as soon as I do, I will be admitting that I'm middle aged. Writing to the council is a thing that we middle aged people do.
Damn not WE middle aged people. Just middle aged people.
I go to work on bin day leaving my bin at the end of my drive, at the side so I can pull out without knocking it over. There's bags of room. It really isn't a problem.
When I come home, with increasing frequency, I find the bin left in the middle of the footpath outside my house and placed right in the middle of my drive so I have to move it before I can get in.
Just 3 more steps. That is all it would take 3 STEPS!
Do bin men do this to eachother, or is there a secret mark that they place on their own bins so they know which ones to put back properly? If there is can someone tell me what it is please.

My PH today is people thinking that I'm middle aged.

Empty bins can move several feet without falling over, in even a moderate wind, if you've got the plastic wheelie type. Mine regularly do, and that's on the driveway which is pretty sheltered. So maybe it isn't the binmen's fault.

PH-not knowing which queue you need to join, and either having to jump to the front to ask, or risk queueing for the wrong thing.

my company, mean well bless their hearts, have arranged a training day for me. In Korea. For one day - which in fact starts at 10am and ends at 3pm. And requires two full days travel time there and back.
i need perfume, however, so I'm going

About the time of the fall of communism in Poland is was customary to go queueing in pairs; one would join the end while the other would go to the front to find out what the queue was for. If the team had the luxury of a third member, s/he would walk from the front of the queue back to where it was calculated to end , eg if there were six dozen eggs left, anybody after number eight was an incurable optimist.
