As a 16 year old, fresh from school I did a stint as a binman...
On the way we kept stopping because Mrs Miggins gave us tea and then Mrs smith down the road had baked a cake, Mr Bloggs gave us some homemade jam etc....... Then at the end of the day we divvyed up the tips for the day and got an extra Â£5 each.
That was every day and in the middle of July!
So, fcuk 'em...they're onto a good earner anyway, they must rake it in this time of the year - and for what? Banging about making noise and a mess at dark o'clock and holding up the traffic.
Bin Men can bollox, they make you leave the bin right on the edge of the curb for the thing to pick it up with its prongs and empty it, yet if you have one bin bag that wont fit into the bin they wont take it!!
They are over paid as it is!!
