This is what a normal City of Phoenix garbage can looks like:
This is what ours looked like after someone banged on our door at 11PM to let us know our garbage can was on fire:
We filled out the form to get a new one on Saturday. On Monday, they told us we could continue to use it. Um, how? Well, we found a use for it as we placed it by the curb for the city to exchange if for a new one. It slows down traffic better than a speed bump and even elicited a few chuckles.
When the city guy arrived today, he demanded to know what we had done. We summed up the events and he left chuckling, letting us know we would be the talk of the town by the day’s end.
