Today (Thursday) is trash day. Waste Management didn’t pick up our trash last Thursday, or the Thursday before that. The pile is mounting. If they neglect us again today, it will be the third week in a row. I have called them eight or nine times.
I ran into Jay Batt at an MCNO meeting Tuesday, and he told me, “Don’t waste your time calling waste management. If they don’t pick up your trash this Thursday, call my office. I don’t give a shit what district you’re in.” (He’s on the City Council for District A, but we live in District B.)
Also, we haven’t gotten mail at our house for about a week now. Michael told me their mail recently started getting forwarded to Omaha again, for no apparent reason. I need to get to the Post Office and find out what’s up.
And adding to my frustration is all these meetings I’ve been attending lately. Neighborhood meetings, planning meetings, work meetings. I’m meetinged out. And I haven’t even attended a fraction of the number of meetings I feel I should.
