An Experiment

     You know when people say, "I swear I am the only one who (insert undesirable job here)"? You know like turning off the lights, or picking up their socks. Well, since Katy has been gone all the time/moved out I have felt like I am the only one who takes out the trash. Now, this could just be me being silly and overly annoyed at the tedious and perpetual task of taking out the trash. On the other hand, I could be right. So, to test my theory, I did an experiment.
     I decided to see how many days my roommates could go without taking any bags of garbage to the dumpster in the parking lot. I thought for sure if I just gave them enough time, eventually, someone would realize we had all this garbage and throw it away. This is what happened:

       It takes us about 3-5 days to fill one of these bags, so what we're looking at here is 9-15 days of trash. That could mean 2 WEEKS PEOPLE! And 2 pizza boxes is actually below average for even a week. I know it's a long 45-second walk to the dumpster and putting on shoes and a jacket can be so physically taxing but, come on!
     Needless to say, when the first bag started to smell pretty rank I caved. And yes, I finally took out the trash.
Ah. That's better.

     But, I think it's safe to say, "I am LITERALLY the only one who takes out the trash".


  1. Human behavior is truly amazing! Your nose thanks you for caving!

  2. I did that same experiment with Todd and the dishes once! I ended up caving too. Dangit those people that don't notice the nastiness!

  3. Hahaha... well to give she who must not be named credit she told me she hadn't figured out where the dumpster was like three months into living there.... but I told her... so she receives no credit. Dang.
