That seems inconvenient to lug your unbagged refuse around. I'm sure it also messes up your good shirts and pants.

So really not your problem? Move your bin away? Don't they have lids that prevent ?????? from moving out of the bin itself? I'm confused how this is affecting you if it's not your lidded bin.

yeah I'm having the same confusion as Y8S. Seems like if your garbage is in bags and the can stays shut, not sure how there's maggots in there even after 2 weeks. Hot glue some mothballs to the lid or something? I keep my garbage cans in my garage and wheel them out to the curb the morning of pickup

Let me clarify and whine some more.

Their bin is right opposite mine. Whatever they throw out isn't in bags.

Where do I go next in my quest for subtle revenge.

Pic related.

I could try the mothball trick, thanks.

rig up a way to drop raw meat into a concealed part of their yard. you will have to deal with the smell for a while but once they pass out from it, maybe convince them to use bags?

give them bags?

get a 2 foot long 1" drill so that vermin can easily access their trash through the bottom of the can.

get a 2 foot long stick and just push the can over periodically. if they inquire, claim it was large mammals in search of unbagged trash.

erect a smell barrier on that trellis.

drill a hole on the path side of the can to allow the smegma soup at the bottom of their can to drain into the walking area so they track it into their house.

tie an invisible monofilament line from their trash can to their car. video tape the result.

create an "official" notice from the trash colleciton agency that the cans are the agency's property and must be properly maintained. give specific examples and text alluding to neglect of cans will result in additional trash handling charges or cleaning fees.

ding-dong-ditch them with the can leaned up against their door.

1. In neighbor trashcan stories, I took great delight in watching my new next-door neighbors repeatedly stuff their recycling bin full of trash and then wonder why the garbage truck wouldn't empty it. They did this 3 weeks in a row, and on the 3rd week they stood in their garage and yelled at the garbage men when they drove down our street and did not empty their recycling bin. The recycling bins are bright green with yellow lids -- I wonder if my neighbors are color-blind!?

2. I survived my first day at my new job. 4 hours of orientation, a catered lunch, then 4 hours of introductions, checking out my office, playing with some of the company software, and shooting the breeze with another tech. Oh and I got a new laptop -- a Dell Latitude E6430. Bigger than I'd want for a personal laptop, but it has solid construction and is really snappy with an i5 proc and 8 GB of ram. It's heavy but it fits in my bag so that's fine.

3. Techsalvager is an embarrassment to...well, to any group he'd claim to be a part of, including the human race. You know what's worse than sjmarcy? An sjmarcy groupie.

After sooo many years.. like 15 now, of never losing a paper on Word, today was the first day for absolutely no reason Word stopped working and couldn't recover what I hadn't saved. I lost about 20 minutes worth of work... which isn't much, but that **** is annoying.

I think 1 issue in 15 years is pretty good.

I had the same thing happen about six months ago. Except it was nearly an entire day's worth of detailed analysis of a specific failure. It did, in fact, auto-save, however the saved file was completely corrupted and the document was a complete loss.

I don't really blame MS for this, as it's certainly not the first time that an application failure has cost me data. It was, however, the first time in a long while that I'd had it happen while working on local storage (rather than Dropbox) and thus had no means of reverting to a prior savepoint.

The whole experience has scared me into backing up my data a bit more often than I do now. I honestly have backed up my files in a month. I've just been in like a transition period with my computers, and getting the local server back up. School is killing me. Calc final tomorrow and I'm done... for 9 days.
