Thanks to the thankless

Posted Thursday, May 27, 2010, at 3:11 PM

I wish to commend a group of workers who perform a thankless job for the people of Shelbyville week after week.

The people of the City Sanitation Department have been there for us through a long and, for us, cold and messy winter and a rainy spring.

They are open to criticism just because someone is having a bad day. And, we have those who know just how it should be done but have never had to perform that job...cold, wet or both.

I guess I just want to say thanks for a good job.

i think these folks are great whenever i see them on my street i always tell them thanks and try to give them cold water in the hot summer.

They have a thankless job that people look down on but i am grateful for their hard work.

Nice thought Bo. We don't use them out in the County, but I would bet that they put up with a lot and get very little thanks.
