Mondays are tough mornings in our house. I’m not really a morning person & the bus comes at 8:08 exactly (it’s a bit like the Truman Show sometimes), but Mondays also have the added bonus of being garbage/recycling days.
In our apartment house, garbage is stored in the courtyard, and bumped down & then back up 8 steps outside the door, up 5 more steps inside our wooden stairwell, before being bumped out 8 steps to the street. Very loud on a monday when you don’t actually have to get up.
There are very particular rules about the size & shape of the recycle material. All in all, not an easy process, and one that makes me want to just shove it all in the garbage & look the other way. (except that my neighbors will come knocking on my door to instruct me in the “correct” way of doing things, and I really try to avoid any kind of interaction).
