A bit of a poser to come home to

garbage bins

NatColbert has sent this in:

Hi guys, sorry this isn’t a better photo, but I had to stop and take it with my phone, this morning in Theodore St, Curtin, am sincerely wondering what the owners would have thought when they got home, what they would do about it, and if the garbo’s noticed it at the time?

The wheel is actually hookedin the fork of a tree-branch…

Gold!

The unbelievable lunacy of it is awesome!

Imagine the garbo speeding along, comes to this house, just like any other, lines up bin, pulls lever, shake, drops lever… “woah, the bloody bin is stuck in the bloody tree…” lever, shake, lever, shake, shake….”aaahhhh F*&$# it! I’m off”

Good luck getting it down!

One would hope the garbo would have noticed when the trucks arm went up with a bin and came down without.

There’s a quick lesson in common sense for the resident!

Noticing and giving a damn don’t neccessarily go together

What’s the garbo going to do about it? Wave his magic wand at it?
Of course he drove off leaving it there – he has work to do.

Maybe it’s a lesson from the garbage truck driver not to put the bins near low trees?

Eh, anyway, a large pole will bring it down, Just stand underneath it and push it straight up

This is even better than the street sign in a tree outside the Turner bowlo. Good work that garbo!

They’re lucky it didn’t have a pair of runners in it, or it would have ended up hanging off a power line.

All this time the government has been telling us that wheelie bins are expensive when obviously they really grow on trees!
