    Now I see that every day. I see people load their garbage bags into their cars and drive to the dumpster 2 buildings down from their apartment. Then they do a U-ie and park in front of their apartment building again, task completed.

    Freakin' nuts-o world, I'm tellin' ya.

    ETA: here's a fun fact. 1/4 of car trips in the US are LESS than 1 mile! http://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/200803/twowheeled.asp

    Every. Single. Day.

    The dumpster is in front of my apartment. This drives me nuts.
    (and no, I would NOT put the garbage on my passenger seat just to save me a 50 yd walk)
