There is no cost to the business for recyclables collected by the city. Wet cardboard is a different matter.

Keep him locked in there too long and you're gonna have some wet cardboard...

If only he had a manger to sleep in.

A living manger would be terrifying.  Completely changes the story of Christ.

Taco Bell as a manger would add a whole new dimension to the War on Xmas...

♫  Away in a manger
No box for a bed ♫

♫  The little homeless person
Lay down is crack head. ♫

♫  The man with the trash
Looks down and he say ♫

♫  "I'll lock you in here
so you can't get away!" ♫

I googled it, and you're right. He really does hate the movie. Strange. It's a cult classic. I've lost a little respect for the guy, not that he's ever been one of my favorites, anyway.

You libtards make me sick. This man put this guy in an area where he could get free food and everything, and you think he's a bad man.

If this man was nice enough to light the dumpster on fire, I bet you'd be hating on him for keeping him warm too!

When I was a teenager, I worked at a McD's for my first job. This was back when they didn't try to make you think their food was anything but crap - the good old days when you had a heat bin with 30 cheeseburgers just sitting there, ready to go. Naturally, this led to a lot of waste. If we didn't sell the burgers in something like 90 minutes, we had to throw them out. Sometimes, the shift manager would get overzealous and end up with about 20-30 aging burgers just sitting there.

One night my manager had me do a garbage run. When I got to the corral, I started tossing bags of trash in, when something caught my eye. Turned out it was a homeless guy rummaging through the dumpster, looking for food. He kinda got this scared look in his eyes - I guess it wasn't unusual for the cops to be called in a situation like this.

Once we both got over the initial adrenaline shock, I said, "Damn you scared the hell out of me..." We both kinda laughed and he started asking me not to call the cops, that he was just hungry, etc. I told him I wasn't going to call the cops and to wait there for a few minutes.

I went back inside and asked my shift manager how much longer was left on the burgers in the heat bin. She said, "About 15 minutes, why?" I told her, "I might as well take them out - we're dead tonight and there's no way we're going to sell them all." She agreed and went on about her business of going through closing checklists or some crap.*

I grabbed a fresh garbage bag and started loading up the food. Hambugers, cheeseburgers, Big Macs - there might even have been some chicken nuggets in there. There must have been a good 30 or more sandwiches in there by my estimate. Then I got a large Coke and acted like it was mine and headed out the door, bag of food over my shoulder like I was the bastard child of Santa Claus and The Hamburglar.

I got back out to the corral and told the guy, "Here - have some food. Gotcha a Coke to wash it down with too. There's a lot there, so if you have some friends, you could share it with them or something." Dude just looked at me like I was speaking Russian or something. He finally took the bag and opened it up, looked inside, then back at me, then back to the bag. He started to tear up a little, and I could tell that this was probably the best break he'd had in a long time. I handed him the Coke and told him, "Whatever you do, don't tell my boss. She'll get pissed." He kinda laughed again and said something about how I was a good person, not very many people would do that for a bum, etc. I smiled, told him to take care and went back in to finish my shift.

That was 27 years ago.

I like to think that he went on to get his life in order and is living happily somewhere, and occasionally shares a story about the time a lanky, wild-haired, red-headed McDonald's employee snuck him a bag of burgers and a Coke behind a dumpster.

Chances are equally good that he didn't survive though. He may have died a long time ago. Exposure, drugs, old age, heart condtion...the list of things goes on and on. But if he DID die, perhaps his last thoughts were, "I'm gonna miss cheeseburgers..."

The important thing is that sometimes we have to help out others, even if it means putting our own necks on the line just to do what is right...just to do what is HUMAN.

Be different.
Take a chance.
Reach out.
Help someone.

He was in the cardboard bin looking for a new home. It's like they locked him in the showroom. At best he'd find some chewed gum and a stale mint.

Homeless person restaurant story bro (HPRSP):
I used to work at UPS. Every year at Thanksgiving, a customer provides all employees with a turkey. Since most of us were young single guys, we decided to make a huge buffet and feed random homeless people. We were setting up tables in the parking lot of a Burger King that was closed due to the holiday. The owner got a call that we were in his parking lot. He came by with his wife and two daughters. Once he found out what we were up to, he actually opened the restaurant for seating, drinks, etc. His wife even went out and got pies. I am generally not a charitable person, but we probably feed over 50 people that day. It is one of my best memories to be honest. That owner really impressed me (and his wife was totally hot so bonus.)

The cops said he was locked in.
They have bins with locking bars which can't be opened from the inside, even if the outside isn't padlocked.

Had an interview last week - four of us got sent over and the client said that I was the "top candidate, but they want to interview a couple more people before proceeding." I guess that means they had one good candidate and three mouth-breathers?

Got another interview set up with a different company on Thursday afternoon...I may get to wear a battle kilt on Fridays and bring my crossbow in - I'll be asking about that during the course of the interview. :)
