Just To Get To Work

Friday 25 July 2003

To get into the building I work in, I have to walk up a short hill from a parking deck. Behind my building are multiple fraternity houses, which means multiple dumpsters. So every morning when I get to the workplace, the first thing I see (and smell) is these dumpsters, along with whoever might be inside them fishing for cans or food.

It's doubly fun on mornings after a big party, because then the trash is all over the place and I get to walk through it.

It's triply fun when it rains, because a strange smelly sludge then runs out of the dumpsters and down the hill, and I get to walk through it.

If I was one who hated my job, I would comment on how fitting it is that I have to walk through garbage to get to work.
