So I went to Fry’s after work to do some serious dorking-out (you know perusing the video games, grabbing the latest issue of Wired, beaming my contact information between all the other nerds, etc.). While walking into the store, I noticed one of the employees emptying the garbage can out front. He proceeded to sort out the Coke cans and plastic bottles, gather them up, and then go throw them in the bushes! I was incensed! In this day and age, and in the usually progressive area I lived in, I simply could not fathom that some jerk would deliberately be throwing recyclable materials into the bushes!
Then I realized he was “seeding” the shrubbery for the homeless people that scour the area at night. It’s kind of sweet actually, setting it all up so the unfortunates would at least achieve a sense of accomplishment.
