Ordering a Long Wait — 11 Comments

  1. The Punto was not mine……….. I've done some low things in my time but drive a Fiat? ugh

  2. A couple of days after the company picks up the skip, are you going to let them know that you're a smoker? The resulting panic would be quite something: police in hazmat suits surrounding the business and escorting people away to quarantine, hospitalizations from psychosomatic third and fourth hand smoke, the local coucil trying to track down every last rotting dog kennel and sack of underwear at the local dump, roadblocks set up to test every last fiat punto for traces of nicotine (complete with gas chromatographs)…The possibilities are endless.

    • The last business I had in UK involved toxic (ish) waste, and I had a contract with a local skip firm who left a skip permanently on site, and would exchange it when it was full. Because it was 'toxic' waste, they charged me a fucking fortune to dispose of it. (I think at the time a normal skip was about 50 quid, and I was paying close to 400) It was only after a couple of years I found out that my skip went to the local landfill just the same as all the other skips, the only difference being that they marked on a grid approximately where mine had been dumped. WTF?

      They screw you every which way…

      • You'll be pleased to hear that there is all sorts of nasties going into that skip of mine – a few cans of something I definitely wouldn't drink, some highly suspicious bottles and the creme de la creme, I even eptied an ashtray into it.  The latter makes it positively lethal as everyone knows that tobacco has a half life of several billion years.

  3. oo work well done then, however, having wandered south across the 'merican boarder I beleive you are in error they don't call them "dumpsters" they seem to call them "self storage" facilities as there was a shit load of them every state we went through! seriously who needs that much stuff that you need to rent a space to store more of the stuff.

    • Those "self storage" things are basically just room sized left luggage rooms, aren't they?  Why anyone would want to rent a room just to store junk is beyond me, but then maybe I have led a sheltered life?

  4. Ladies and "Gentelemen.

    This is a public service announcement.

    We are ALL being right royally screwed,the only known anti-dote is a bottle of whiskey,2 six packs ,shotgun and a pack of smokes.As we say in this here neck of the wood:fuck the begrudgers.



  5. Sounds like something we'll be doing come next year after my wife retires from her 'brick and mortar' (meaning store) with the possible exception of the Fiat. And 'cuz I have to say it…

    …"dumpster" makes all the sense in the world as it refers to a large metal container you "dump" things in. Sooo…how does the term "skip" relate in any way, shape or form to a metal container you dump things in?
