(I know my garden doesn't look like that; I live in hope)
Our kerbside recycling box now contains five empty wine bottles - (three days after it was emptied). Can't think how it happened!
I have a theory about these "boxes of shame":
Most of the boxes on our road contain tons of newspapers and a few food jars. However, there are three boxes on our road that contain only the local freebie papers and lots of wine bottles. (Yes, I have looked)
Here's my theory:
- most of the boxes belong to pensioners who have time to read newspapers and not enough pension money to buy alcohol (we live in the suburb of Manchester that I term 'Pensioner City', where most people here bought their houses new in 1956 - I'm not kidding!)
- the other three boxes belong to working mums!
