Running garbage through the CSI process.

Posted Monday, December 19, 2011, at 2:09 PM

Have you ever found a bag full of garbage nicely left on the side of the road for others to enjoy? If you have ever been the person leaving it and found it in your front yard some time later, I might be the one who returned it.

I usually document it for proof of repeat occurrences and then return it to the owner with a little note explaining that a second deposit of that nature will result in it being turned in to the proper authorities.

I mean come on folks, take it another mile to the convenience center!

You might be surprised that if I can find out who owned the garbage, I can often find out other details that could be misused by nefarious folk. In case you do not know what nefarious means, try criminal.

Well, today my wife stopped me from doing my research. Not sure if it was because of Christmas or the fact that I found black silk panties and a swimsuit bottom. Maybe she did not want me to identify this owner?

OK, so the lesson learned here is to always include panties or other underthings and I probably won't get to track you down. But beware, some day my wife won't be with me and......

Funny how some throw the bags in the back of a truck and run fifty to sixty miles an hour, never giving thought that the trash is blowing out,and by the time they get to where they're going don't even recall throwing the bags into the truck and if they do just think awe somebody will pick it up. That's why our streets and roads are so trashy. Rember the ad that was played on TV?

"TENNESSEE TRASH", I think it ought to be put back on the TV's as a public announcement.

You mean Alice was never there?

I wonder if I could get some $$ for bringing it up. Garbage CSI the dirty world of trash. Hmmm.

I also understand that you can get in trouble for dumping your garbage after eating at Alice's Restaurant. Although it's probably worth it, because you can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant. (Excepting Alice.)

I guess another lesson might be to remove identifying information before dumping it on the roadside, but I doubt that anyone reading this is one of the perpetrators, so I guess I am not giving away a secret.
