Deafblind tips 8 – Rubbish bins with shoe laces
I live in a nice unit shared with other 4 units on the same property. Every Monday evening I take my wheeled rubbish bins to the front nature strip for the early morning smelly rubbish to be picked up by the garbage truck collectors. You know Garbage men do not care to put the bins back in the same spots on the nature strip. The bins become mixed around and I can not read the bins printed numbers. How can I find the bin that belongs to me? Well, here is a simple hint. I cut an old shoe lace into two then tie it to the handles of the green rubbish bin and yellow recycle bin. This helps me find which bins are mine and I can drag them back.
Hey I wonder if Oscar the Grouch is grumpy and nagging if I tied shoe lace on the handles of his bin??
