    WFT? He must have taken it down Christmas day. What's the sense of putting one up if you take it down Christmas day? My next door neighbor has a new Dyson box in his trash. He must have gotten his wife a vacuum for christmas. I'm glad to see that there's still some romance in the old bird's marriage.

    No, I don't look through people's trash. How can you miss a fucking Christmas tree when you're driving down the street? And my next door neighbor and I put our trash in the same place to save the G-men a couple of steps.

    I wonder if any of the neighbors think that I gave the Dyson for christmas. :surprised:

    This place is sadly lacking in quality threads like this one.

    I'm pretty sure our city just tosses them in with the garbage. They ought to mulch them or something.

    Last week we threw out our grill. Some guy was at the end of our driveway with a tool kit, taking it apart to put in the trunk of his Camry. We get a lot of garbage pickers around here.

    Nothing wrong with a vacuum. It beats spending $500 on some POS that nobody really wants or needs. Put that money to something useful. My wife gets kitchen appliances at times because that's what she wants. :dontknow:

    We have garbage pickups 4 times a year where I live, where you can put virtually anything out and they will take it free of charge. Mattresses, sofas, whatever! It's a whole event now. We call it 'redneck fishing' and will gather shit up just for the day. My sister and brother in law come over and we drink a few beers while we sit and watch. There are people driving up and down the street like vultures to get at the stuff. Great entertainment. :rofl:

    I let my mother come over for Christmas. She's tacky as hell. She brought a bunch of Christmas-related crap. Dancing Chipmunk, moose and annoying shit like that. I gathered it up and put it on the curb 15 minutes after she left with a "free stuff" sign. It was gone in less than an hour. They were even nice enough to not leave the cardboard sign behind.

    I used to live in a College town. The rest of the town was pretty small. When school got out for Christmas and in Spring, the students would put a bunch of shit out at the curb that they didn't want to have to deal with. It was about like you described, people trolling up and down the streets, picking trash. One of my friends claimed to have gotten a fully decorated christmas tree off of the curb.

    I was given one of those mounted bass fish that sings christmas songs as a joke gift one year. I've rescued it from the trash and multiple garage sales. I try to sneak it up every year after we decorate the house.
