Trash day's on Tuesday. ...and twice on Wednesday?
Jan 24, 2007

Having just moved into our new condo, Jessi and I didn't really know what we were supposed to do with our trash, and we haven't really had a chance yet to meet our neighbors and ask them about it either. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to have the misfortune of losing my internet access yesterday morning (still stealing from a neighbor until Friday) and so I was leaving the house early enough to notice that everyone had their trash cans out with trash in them. So I ran back upstairs and brought down our garbage just in time to see the garbage truck come around the corner to pick it up. That, I figured, was that. Trash day is on Tuesday. Imagine my surprise when this morning I not only see a garbage truck coming down the street again, but, soon after, another one follows! Three garbage trucks in two days? What is the city of Somerville spending my tax money on? I suppose it may have had something to do with the fact that we're literally right on the line between Cambridge and Somerville (the other side of the street is in Cambridge), but I still don't see how that necessitates three garbage trucks. Oh well. To paraphrase Lord Alfred Tennyson, ours is not to reason why.
